Embracing the street art scene of Byron Bay

With a few days off at a mates place and non-stop rain chucking itself down on Byron, I took to the streets in search of inspiration; colour I might normally find in nature around these fertile parts of Northern New South Wales. While the silvery hues of the ocean hold their own special appeal, it seems surfers […]

Mooching around Melbourne

After a taxing university semester and a sweaty Summer in Brisbane stretching ahead of us, we decided to take a city break in Melbourne. The idea being to escape the Brisbane humidity, catch a comedy show, mooch around the street-art filled suburbs and treat ourselves to some decadent meals.

Photodump: Golden city

It seems like some kind of nature conspiracy has been happening of late. On my regular bushwalk the trees have been bursting with golden petals, rainforest seed pods have been turning outrageous shades of happy and the colour orange has been yelling at me for attention.

With a little Brisbane city fever and Summer fast approaching I was well in need of a visit home to Sydney – a stay with my dear friend Mon was in order. I couldn’t think of a nicer way to catch up than a walk along the coastline; the added bonus being a chance to […]

Exploring the colour and backstreet graffiti of Melbourne

Any visitor to Melbourne will quickly realise that the locals don’t tolerate graffiti in their city spaces; they embrace it. For me, getting lost in the lane-ways and stumbling on a sudden burst of colour added to the anticipatory joy of turning each corner. It also tells me a lot about the people that live there. As Australia’s […]

Living the lush life within the traditional houses of Japan

One of the many highlights of my journey to Japan has been the opportunity to experience some intense luxury. After a long time watching every peso on the Latin road, plus an offer from friends to visit me in transit, I was given the perfect excuse to blow the budget and step in to another world. Days […]

La pasión de Botero

One of the most famous of the modern Colombian artists would have to be a guy that loves to paint, sculpt and illustrate voluptuous figures of people and still life. So round in fact, you would be forgiven in thinking the guy has a fat fetish. His work is gorgeous, political and provocative; synonymous with […]
