Volunteering in the USA

Volunteer work is one of the best ways to further any skill, and is an excellent form of continual professional development. If you have an employable skill already, doing volunteer work opens up doors for things like work/stay opportunities. This is one way Riley and I were able to secure free accommodation on our travels... Continue Reading →

Cat Cafe Prague

Keeping with the recent cat theme - I can't believe it's taken me so long to write about this little gem that we visited last year on a trip to Prague. It was our last day in the city, and we were looking for somewhere to go before heading to the airport that afternoon. That's... Continue Reading →

Cats and Cake in Glasgow

The... Continue Reading →

Gorge Wildlife Park

Located near the adorably named Cudlee Creek in South Australia, Gorge Wildlife Park is only a 40 minute drive from the peaceful city of Adelaide. We came across this park on our quest to find an establishment that would allow koala holding, something that is hard to come by in other states of Australia due... Continue Reading →

Sightseeing in Stockholm

Stockholm provided many pleasant surprises as a traveller to the city, and despite it being a more expensive destination to visit, it is possible to still see plenty of sights and get around on a budget. On top of that, it was a city I felt entirely safe wandering around in - a big thumbs... Continue Reading →
