I’m Back!

So for the last month there has been a lack of posts on here because simply…I’ve been in Europe.

End of June and all of July I’ve been travelling around Europe. I spent my first two weeks in England, visiting family and being the biggest tourist around the absolutely incredible London. Then I set off on a 14 day Topdeck tour through France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium. It’s safe to say in the four and a bit weeks I was there, there was not a moment that I was not in awe of how amazing our world is.

I took off on this journey on my own and I’m so glad I did. Not just because of the amazing things I saw in the cities I visited but because it became a sort of independence voyage for me. Being on the other side of the world, making my own way, doing things that interested me without having to wait for the approval of someone else was such a freeing experience. It really let me just be me and let me learn so much more about myself and where I am in life.

Tomorrow marks my 1 week of being home since my adventure ended. This week I’ve been at at uni and work, and catching up with family and friends. It felt surreal when I touched down in Heathrow but even more so now that I’m home and doing ‘normal’ everyday things. Everything is pretty much the same as when I left and Europe feels like a distant dream, although I’ve got the photos to prove it really happened which I plan on sharing here. I’ve grown since my trip and need to debrief the last amazing month of my life. So for the next 31 days I plan to relive my trip.

Stay adventurous, keep smiling. Remember, not all those who wander are lost and that even if they might be…getting lost is the best way of finding yourself.

Last nights adventures

Last night we went to dinner in Brisbane’s CBD. If you like Japanese food, “Peony” on Albert street in the city is great for a quick meal with over half their menu under $10 with enormous servings.

We then spent the rest of the night exploring Southbank’s many cafe’s and restaurants and grabbed a coffee and desert for Denim Co. Great cafe on Stanley street that has an adjoining boutique clothing shop. Friendly staff and delicious looking food I’m going to have to go back and try, including jars of salad and mueslis, protein bliss balls, and a range of cakes and deserts – I can recommend the peanut butter brownie.
