the leroys

Welcome to the 55th blog post! *cheers of excitement flood the room* Hey party people, what's been going on? Well, Covid-19, among the obvious tragic circumstances, has brought to my life a glimmer of hope and perhaps some good; I'm exaggerating, my life is great. It's reignited my passion for photography and my excitement to…

alta lake + 23

Alike most, I am well and truly into the swing of self isolation and buying everything that pops up on my Instagram ads; obviously because I need it and I can't possibly live without. The only time that I am not at home is when I go to the grocery store for an "adventure". To…

home sweet home

It's official, we have returned home. I'm currently sitting inside our humble abode amongst the hills, wearing some comfy activewear after a workout on the deck. I just ate some overnight oats with mango, as I listen to the sweet 'hold' music that myGov has graciously forced upon me. And when I say myGov, I'm…

somewhere over the rainbow

Most days went along the lines of 'Eat, Sleep, Gym, Repeat' up until we started work. In between, we chatted within our new estate and became friends with Rachel and Emma. Steering away from going crazy (and only just avoiding it), we ventured out to Rainbow Falls, positioned on the opposite side of Alta Lake;…

to the land of maple

You guessed correctly.. Canada! Jordan and I are packing our bags and moving our life across the world. With jobs and housing organised, we need only get on a plane. A much awaited trip, scheduled and rescheduled many times; turns out getting married and building a house takes time, who knew? So, here we are,…

italy / day twenty-three / firenze

Late checkout has us steadily packing up and we soon walk to the train station for a quick bite before our train arrives at Port Nuova. We had a bit of trouble with our seats, but third times a charm. Once in Florence, we disembark the train and lug all of our bags to the…

italy / day twenty / torino

We had such an incredible time in Cinque Terre and were very sad to say goodbye. Unfortunately, we hadn't slept very well on any of the nights at the Airbnb. The rooms were quite nice at first glance, but the beds were disappointing and a sensor in the hallway kept loudly clicking the lights on…

italy / day eighteen / cinque terre

It's been a dream of mine to hike Cinque Terre and see the incredible towns that make up this iconic landscape and we are finally here! As we were only staying in Cinque Terre for two full days, the plan was to take the train to Riommagiore, which is the most southern of the towns, and walk…

italy / day seventeen / cinque terre

Jordan and I get up early and sneak in a workout before breakfast, then pick up some freshly washed clothes from the dry cleaners and some food for the train ride to Cinque Terre. We finished packing up our things and said 'arrevedici' to Roma. The train took approximately four hours to Pisa, from there…
