Although all the travel makes for an emotional working lifestyle that is often exhausting to maintain, there's something I truly love about getting to visit Australia's big smokes regularly. It may have something to do with the change of pace (I slow down while everyone else is going fast), or the fact I get to blend into the crowded streets which is a welcome break from tiny towns where you can't go out without bumping into a dozen people. It could be the sensory overload of concrete, traffic, food smells, mobile phones and everyone on their own little adventure. Whatever it is, I like it. This year I'll also be taking some first time travellers with me, from the community I work in, which will make some of the trips extra special. Lately these photos have helped me to manifest my courage for all the travel I have ahead.
One day really soon I will find the perfect globe, so I can show Ba'il all the places that I go.
Probably the thing I love most about visiting cities is indulging in amazing food.... something that is a rarity when you live remote. We are all very very excited about our special trip to Melbourne, which will be filled with celebrations and quite time exploring inner city cafes, like Milkwood.
While I'm in Canberra I plan on checking out a few amazing bookshops I stumbled across a few years ago and also visiting the National Art Gallery to be inspired by the amazing exhibitions that are currently showing.
It's all about taking the opportunity to do the things I don't normally have the chance to do living remotely, and filling the gaps that are left while I am away from my precious little family with a few good books, a little bit of art, delicious food and inspirations to take home with me.
