During my first week in Sydney, I went on a wine tasting day trip to the Hunter Valley Region. The Hunter Valley is a beautiful area full of vineyards and is also Australia's oldest wine growing region. We had a scenic drive from Sydney to our first winery through stunning bushland and countryside, which seemed even more beautiful and it was sunniest, most gorgeous day we'd had since arriving in Australia. Our tour guide was funny and chatty, telling us interesting facts about Australian history as we drove along, and he stopped the mini bus regulary to point out different Australian trees, plants and also some wildlife!

Australia is, without a doubt, my favourite country that I have visited, and in a couple of months time I am lucky enough to be going back there for a third time. I will be revisiting a couple of my favourite places on the east coast, as well as going to some places I've never visited before, including Melbourne, Adelaide and Alice Springs.
Therefore, I thought it was fitting that my first posts now I have started up my blog should be about Australia!

So its been a long time since since I've written a proper blog post on here! Last summer I was determined to spend some time working on writing some really good posts for my blog. However, in September I started the third and final year of my English degree, and it became almost impossible to set aside time for writing for fun amongst all of the reading, essay writing and dissertation work I had to do for my course.
But now I have finished my degree and I am due to graduate in a months time I am going to work hard to keep updating my blog! It's something I really want to do, because not only do I enjoy writing, and want to make sure I keep writing now I've finished my degree, but it's also a great way for me to document my adventures so I can look back on them in years to come!
I also want to really focus my writing more specifically on travelling and exploring the world! When I first started this blog during my second year of university it was just a place to write for fun about a mismatch of things; travelling, walking, music, beauty, literature and life in general. But over the last year I have become more and more passionate about travelling the world and become really interested in photography and travel photography. Therefore, I really want to create a space where I can write about what I'm passionate about, share my photos and hopefully improve my writing and photography along the way! I think this will be a great way to remember all my travel and I hope that if anyone finds this blog then it will help inspire them to travel as well!
Since the last time I wrote a proper post on here I have travelled round Italy and visited Paris and Barcelona, and I have an exciting three month trip coming up in August! So I will have lots of exciting things to write about on here, so watch this space!
Thanks for reading!
