Photo Diary: Santos Tour Down Under 2018

Twenty years. Twenty glorious years of whizzing wheels, sweltering temperatures and thousands of spectators brining a vibrancy and energy to south Australia that only occurs for one week in January each year. If you were to surmise the Santos Tour Down Under in a few words, those would be the ones I’d run with. It’s an event like no other, and certainly a race like … Continue reading Photo Diary: Santos Tour Down Under 2018

South Adelaide beaches to visit this summer

When you think of South Australian beaches, you’d be forgiven for automatically casting your mind to Glenelg or Port Noarlunga due to their notoriety and popularity with most when the summer comes.

From Paris, With Love…

Roman Holiday

It’s very easy when you’re sitting in a library furiously reading about a place you’ve travelled to become nostalgic and filled with wanderlust. Life for the past three weeks has consisted of furiously researching Caesar for a research paper and saturating my brain with content of Ancient Rome. Rome. Oh how I miss Rome. When I arrived in rome on November 10th 2015, I was … Continue reading Roman Holiday

Autumn Must: Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens

Autumn brings with it a time to ponder the heat of a memorable summer and the prospect of a dreary winter. It also brings with it leaves that have danced with the fading sunlight only to be scorched by its embers leaving streets blanketed with roofs of orange, yellow and red that eventually trickle down onto the pavement to pepper the floor with leaves.
