New York in a Week

Start spreading the news – I’m in NEW YORK. The city of dreams, the city that never sleeps and the biggest cultural melting pot I’ve ever had the pleasure to be immersed in. I’m here for four weeks studying at New York University; a summer creative writing program. Whilst I am studying journalism back home,…

Escape to the Snowy Mountains this Winter

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we’ve got no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Alas, the aforementioned Sammy Cash lyrics do not describe most parts of Australia. Sydney winters are never like that, and I for one would adore a frightful…

How to Holiday on a Budget

Ah, holidays. No other word makes my heart beat faster or makes me heady with joy and a feeling of pure wanderlust. But then, another word, perhaps you’d call it the arch nemesis of travel and holidays, brings me out of my reverie and makes me sweat with anxiety. That word my friends, is money. That…

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel has been dubbed by countless foodies and critics as one of Sydney’s most ‘Instagrammable’ places, and it certainly lives up to this title.

Sydney Gems You Should Know About

The city where sparkling tanzanite waters lap gleefully under the strong sturdy mothership of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The city with plenty of unique restaurants, rockin’ bars, stunning beaches and cultural charm. There are some places you know that you just have to visit when…

Crunchy Caramel Lindt Brownies

Baking for me is one massive stress reliever, so for the life of me I can not figure out why, when lately life has been just a tad (read: very) stressful, I haven’t been baking more. Oh yes, that’s it, time. That little thing that always seems so present, but continues to somehow elude us day after day. So,…

Jerusalem – The Old City

Hard work and dedication really does pay off, my loyal foodies and travellers. Whilst I haven’t posted on E&T in a while, it’s for a good reason. I’ve been off gallivanting down Australia’s East coast on a Contiki trip, one that I got sent on, courtesy of News Ltd and The Travel Corporation. You know…
