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…

we must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong

I'm torn between going adventuring and pocketfuls of money. And in order to travel, I need pocketfuls of money, so I guess that's my first step. In Australia, particularly Adelaide, things are starting to open up again. For example, and most importantly, the gym reopens in less than forty-eight hours. Yeah, there's a bunch of…

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…

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;…

lost lake

We arrived in Whistler a day before my first day of work. Unfortunately, things didn't go quite to plan. I worked approximately ten hours over the span of a month before I even had part time work. Jordan didn't start work till later in the season either. This made it tricky. Moving to a new…

straight out of a tony hawk video game

If you know, you know. The Whistler Train Wreck has been a popular attraction for many years, drawing in travellers of all ages. I'd seen a couple of photos from when Jordan last visited this abandoned train site and I had always wanted to explore it myself. Astoundingly, five years later, I am lucky enough…

italy / day twenty-six / arrivederci italy

Day Twenty Six was mainly spent travelling. We walked from our hotel in Florence to the station, but this time we took the back streets and it was quite enjoyable. I may have even detoured us past 'Roosters' in hope of a green juice to-go - great idea might I add! We arrived at the…

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…
