A New Office Space 

I’ve been in Melbourne for three months now and my work was based in your typical office, on bourke street. I worked with a handful of older males from different companies. There wasn’t much space for my boss and I to be innovative so we knew we had to move.  And that’s exactly what we…

Halloween 2017

‘For no mere mortal can resist, the evil of the Thriller. Hahahahahaha.’ It’s my favourite time of year again, Halloween!!!  This was my second year celebrating in Oz, so I had gotten used to the very warm weather. That didn’t stop me feeling all spooky though, as I carved my pumpkin, watched horror films and…

Exploring the Grampians

I’d officially settled in Melbourne and managed to get used to the ‘four seasons in one day’. However, this weekend the weather was to be over 30 degrees and pure sun. So newly formed group of friends (Swiss, danish, German and columbian) and I, booked a van, and drove out of the busy city to…

Moving to Melbourne 

After three Valium and two glasses of wine I made it to Melbourne; I didn’t remember the flight at all – it was great! The weather change wasn’t the best as it was freezing, rainy and grey when I arrived. I immediately missed the 30 degree heat in Alice! My first stop wasn’t another weird…

The Road to Alice Springs

So this trip happened weeks ago but I’ve had a manic time since then, so now I can finally document my trip! Tash, Ben and myself packed up and set into the centre of Adelaide to get picked up by our tour. It was 6am, rainy and so cold; we were more than ready to…

Adelaide

We arrived in another city! This time we ended up in Adelaide, all the way in South Australia. It was time to say goodbye to our campervan, it was very a emotional and stressful time as cleaning it was a massive task (not to mention the rude Aussie bloke saying if we broke his equipment…

Port Lincoln

After a long fourteen hour drive (for Ben) we finally arrived in Port Lincoln! We stayed in a free campsite for the night, that did ask for a $10 donation. However, as we had to leave very early in the morning, we didn’t see much point. Karma did find its way back to us for…

The Great Ocean Road

So I left the farm all teary eyed and flew to Melbourne. I stayed in an Air BnB and woke up fresh the next morning; ready to start my next adventure. I got an Uber to the campervan rental place and met my road trip buddies; who were none other than good old Tash and…

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s I’ll See You Soon

The dreaded last day on the farm was looming over me and I was trying my best to not think about it.  We finished picking a couple of days before I was meant to leave; it was very bittersweet. I kinda didn’t want to stop picking, now that I had gotten good at it!  We…

Strawberry Picking on our Lunch Break 🍓

Today was a bit of a disaster; we were all woken up at 6.30am by a very bashful Ellie; she may had forgotten to tell us we were picking, so instead we got drunk and stayed up so late the night before.  The whole group were rough AF and exhausted, PLUS the beans were absolutely…

France and America Have Invaded!

Kira, Kieren and I had gotten used to being the three best friends that anyone could have; along with Salty, Sugar and Spice too. However, things were about to change as we were notified that three new pickers were arriving.  First up we had Brice and Saskia a 25 year old French couple and then…

Animal Farm 🐰🐥

Don’t let the title fool you; this story has a happy ending!  It was an average day on the patch; Kieren, Kira, Andrew and I were all picking away. Ellie then pulls up on her tractor and walks over to us. Our immediate thought was we had done something wrong, but no it was one…
