Unfortunately, today is the last ever Travel Tuesday link-up – in its current form, at any rate. I’m genuinely really sad to see the Travel Tuesday link-up go, because it’s the first link-up I ever joined as a brand shiny new blogger. I added my post about my favourite things to do in Middle Head, Sydney (including my favourite ever afternoon tea) way back in January 2015. Whilst that seems like forever ago to me, I know that some of you reading were linking up way before that. In bidding farewell to Travel Tuesday, I don’t want to wave goodbye to the… View Post

Want to have a sneaky peek around the AirBnb villa with a view we rented in Oia, Santorini and find out how you can enjoy this killer view yourself? Yeah, of course you do. We all get nosy from time to time, there’s no shame here. This is a safe internet space! First, some details. After struggling so much to find gluten free food in Istanbul, we decided to switch the hotel we’d already booked in Imerovigli, Santorini for a villa with a kitchen so I could make my own food if I needed to. We decided we’d rather stay in Oia,… View Post

Hello unplanned hiatus! Turns out that whilst I am great at scheduling content for whilst I’m away, apparently I’m not so good at picking up again once I return. Normal service will now be resumed! As regular readers may know, because I wouldn’t shut up about it, I recently turned 30 and I was lucky enough to do so on the beautiful island of Santorini. Now, I’m someone who typically isn’t bothered by birthdays and I don’t tend to make a big hue and cry about them. However, I figured I should make a bit more effort for my 30th.… View Post

Our first two days in Santorini have been pretty overcast and it’s even rained, nonetheless I’ve taken to the streets of Oia with my camera and I’m here to take you along with me. It’s a bit windy, too… I hear the weather is going to cheer up for our last two days here, so hopefully I’ll have some more cheerful shots to share with you on my return. Til then, -Rachel Pin me for later: Travel Tuesday In case you didn’t see our previous announcement, after years of hosting the #TravelTuesday link-up, Bonnie has decided to step away from her position as… View Post

Today is my birthday! I’m turning 30 at last. You know, it’s not as scary as I thought it would be. This was my view this morning. My adorable husband made me pancakes (gluten free!) which we sat and ate watching the sea get bluer and bluer.  While I’m wandering around Santorini with my eyes like saucers, I thought I’d share with you some reflections I’ve been having in the lead up to the big 3-0. This is sort of along the same lines as treat yo’self, but on a macro level. After losing my father last year, my moorings… View Post
