Our lovely new apartment is finally coming together. We moved out of our old apartments and into our new place in one day. It was all amounts of stress and hard work, but it was great to just get it done and out of the way.
A couple of weeks ago, I packed my bags for a weekend in Melbourne to visit my best friend Claire. We were booked in to experience the Peninsula Hot Springs, the first natural hot springs and day spa centre in Victoria.
I spent a month travelling on the Trans-Siberian Train as part of my year travelling the world and had the time of my life. I flew to St Petersburg on a one-way ticket, catching another train to Moscow where my adventure began all the way until Beijing. I read a lot of guide books, forums and blogs beforehand which gave me good advice, but there were some things I wish I had known before my trip travelling on the Trans-Siberian as a solo female traveller.
Ever since I went to the Tate Modern in London to see contemporary artist, Ai WeiWei’s Sunflower Seeds, I’ve loved his worked and have been fascinated by his story. I was coming on a trip to Melbourne to visit Claire this weekend, so it was the perfect opportunity to check out the Melbourne art scene with a trip to the National Gallery of Victoria’s newest exhibition from Ai Weiwei and Andy Warhol.
I live alone. For the first time since I moved out of my parent’s house 12 years ago, I’m the queen of my own castle. And it’s a growing trend, with one in four Australians living alone and the majority being happy with their choice.
