Putting down roots

Poinciana blaze

Looking back over images I’ve taken since I last wrote I realise there has been a subconscious theme building – one of growth, shelter and putting down roots. I’ve been looking up a lot it seems, noticing the trees that I pass by on my regular walks to University.

Capturing the change in season of the past couple of months, I can see that I must be settling in to a life of non travel, reluctantly albeit, but I am. Although, the thought of another four years of study doesn’t pay thinking about for too long.

Even though we started this blog as a travel focused diary I’m going to continue to indulge the process of recording memories for Andres and I by writing about the little things. Mostly because I believe that it’s possible to still travel in your mind, in your every day life, just by noticing the details that surround you. Simple things like a new spray of flowering trees, the latest fresh produce that has come in to season and slow, easy time catching up with friends over food.

I had hoped to be travelling to volunteer during my semester break from study but lack of paid work means I’ll be sticking close to home. The upside being I have an abundance of time to visit my family in Sydney, cook for friends and relish the little things around Brisbane. Andres is dreaming of an Asian escape from work somewhere in the new year, so until then I’ll be sharing a little more Aussie love from the places that are special to me.


 Hope you’re remembering to look up wherever you are in the world.
