    THINKING ABOUT ADELAIDE?
    This morning I read an alarming statistic.... (not true, it just seems like an interesting sentence to start this blog post, read on...) So 2017, I woke up in an empty hotel room. My friend Shammi was suppose to be rooming with me but he obviously had a far bigger & more exciting night than I did and managed to find himself in the loving company of someone else, with longer hair than mine. His new years was lit... mine, not so lit. It was raining, I drew back the curtains in my hotel room to

    DIED & CAME BACK TO LIFE!
    I'm in bed. It's 9am on a Saturday morning, the day before Valentines Day (not like that means anything, I'm just giving you a better reference of time) and... I'm still in bed. Who am I?! I haven't made a video blog in over 4 months! I haven't written a blog post in 3. I haven't taken nearly enough pictures to excite any form of instagram wanderlust let alone excite myself and yet i'm lying here thinking, when will it start again? When will I get my mojo back!!   I think I kind of explained

    BEFORE YOU TRAVEL CAMBODIA
    Having spent the last five days in Cambodia and being the subject to a number of interesting opportunists, I thought it was only fair that I share some of my wisdom to those of you who also wish to make your way over here. This may just allow you to stand tall throughout the situations where I seemed to of fallen short #scambodia :) If you've been keeping up with my vlogs on YouTube you might have seen this first scam play out. Let's call it the 'Child Needs Milk' scam. Picture a baby holding

    South East Asia PandaBed Adventure
    Just in... NEWS FLASH!! We're going to ASIA!  The day Lisa & I got back from Europe (over a month ago) I decided to jump online and share some photos from our adventures. Turns out whilst I was surfing the internet I stumbled across this video that 'Flying The Nest' had posted to their YouTube channel. The team at PandaBed (an accommodation provider similar to Air B&B) were on the hunt for a couple of interns to help them create video content to showcase their awesome accommodation across south

    R U OK? A Simple Question to Help Save Lives!!
    Sometimes the internet can be a really really dark place. But from that darkness shines some of the brightest of lights! For me, over the last 12 months, each time I've felt anxious, depressed, over-the-moon, happy, or even curious and unsure about something I've reached out to the online world and people have responded. I've found so much light & positivity from strangers, from people I've never even met or ever seen before. People responding to my concerns by posting comments on a video I've

    BEST VLOGGING CAMERA (2015 EDITION)
    What up guys!! So one of the most frequently asked questions in the comment section of my YouTube video blogs is "What camera do you use?" I thought I'd take the opportunity to write a blog post that responds to all of you at once explaining some of the more technical side to how I create my video content. This way, next time someone asks me that very same question I can point them in the right direction by linking them to this post!! Sorted ai :) You see the trick to video blogging or daily

    FAILING FOLLOWS FUNCTION #failtosucceed
    Today is just one of those days. I'm staring at a blanket of grey clouds outside my window, struggling to concentrate on doing anything, procrastinating like a boss & feeling terribly behind the eight ball!! No need to worry or stress, nothing a simple list can't fix. To those of you out there that also have days like this, my remedy for turning nothing into something starts by writing it all down on a crappy little list! List's literally... GET SH*T DONE!  I wanted to update those of you that

    So I've just got back from a 17 day adventure through Europe stopping in France, Croatia & Italy! What a treat. I really do feel blessed at the moment to of had such an opportunity.

    What Are The Odds (The best travel game)
    I think for me, the best part about travelling is meeting new people. Over the last few days that's happened a lot! Right now i'm currently in Croatia. The premise of this adventure has been to create a series of destination travel videos in partnership with MTV & Flight Centre, whilst partnering with Topdeck, Busabout, & Contiki in each of the different cities we travel to. The tour we're on is stopping in 3 different cities, Paris, Novalja, & Rome & recently I've been fortunate enough to

    TO STUDY, OR NOT TO STUDY
    Yesterday I was asked on twitter if I could write a blog post outlining my thoughts toward the benefits of studying higher education. I guess the question was raised after reading my bio on the home page of this blog which says something along the lines of... "we all need more skillz." I'm probably not the best advocate or poster boy for higher education institutes because I'm yet to graduate from any of the courses I've studied though for you guys reading this wanting to gain some insight into

    How To Lose Your Splendour Virginity
    Today it dawned on me that in less than two weeks time a nation of YoLO living millennials will embark on some serious road-trips from all around the country in order to find themselves in the middle of the bush, somewhere close to a Bay they call Byron... Byron Bay. To me, this sounds great! And if I hadn't been offered the opportunity to head overseas I would be joining this group of lads & ladette's in attempt to have as much fun, watch as many bands, and meet as many new people that a common

    Exploring the Tropics
    Exploring is something I love to do. You see I grew up in a small village north west of Cairns, Kuranda, and as a kid, space always seemed to be vast and almost infinite. We lived on acreage and my parents grew herbs on a small farm. It's funny when I tell people that I grew up on a 'herb farm' as they almost always seem to question my parents motif behind the word 'herb'...   The farm was home to a variety of herbs which were sold to local supermarkets and we lived on this property for almost
