7 Solid Replacements to take in your Carry On.

Hi Pals,

Whether you’re going on a short or long trip – we’re all bound by the same, dare I say “annoying” airline rule of 100mls per carry-on.
Now if you’ve checked bags, it’s less of an issue because you’re more than likely to have your products in there. If you’re trying to save $$, have lost your bag too many times or just travel light – it can become a hassle.
Over the years, I’ve managed to create a pretty good list of things I can substitute so with that, click ‘read more’ to see a list of ways you can minimise your 100ml liquids.

Melbourne: The City Gardens.

Hi Pals,
Did you know that there are 480 hectares (1186.11 acres) of grassy green parks, each with public artworks, venues and unique features located in Melbourne? Sounds like some pretty common knowledge to me. Just whip that out next time you’re at trivia. Here are a few of my favourite Melbourne City parks to take a picnic to, listen to a podcast in or just go sit and read.

How to add guests to an Airbnb trip

Hi Pals,
I love AirBnb, and I especially love looking at all the fantastic homes people have. Recently, I was having issues adding guests on an upcoming trip.

So, just in case you’re also having issues; here’s how to add a guest to your Airbnb trip:

1. Go to Your Trips on airbnb.com.

2. Under the trip, click on “Show Trip Details”

3. Click on “Your home reservation.”

4. Scroll down until you see ‘Who’s coming’ and select Manage.

5. Enter the Guest Name and Email and click “Invite.”

Those guests will receive an email to accept the invite. Reviews will then be left on their profiles.

Happy Holidaying,

Monthly Moments: December

Hi Pals,
Thanks for checking in on my December.

December was a bit of a long month for me and I guess that’s to be expected because it really has a lot in it. You’ve got the holiday period, things to organise, places to go and everyone’s scrambling to get gifts and plan everything out.

Check out my favourite December moments below!

The Best Travel Apps.

Hi Pals,

Now there are so many websites on which travel application is going to make your trip better, faster, stronger… and the starting lyric of that should have been easier.  I have a 64GB iPhone 6s plus and as I’ve only had this phone for a year or so, I’m not being asked to delete things… yet.

Although I still love using pen & paper to write things down and plan – I also like having applications to book, save & share with others.

Ubud-dah add this to your bucket list.

Hello Pals,

I recently went to Ubud for a friends birthday and ‘u bud-dah believe I loved it!’ (sorry.) Ubud was a fantastic time away; fresh food, lovely people and so many sights around that you understand why people want to come and live here. It’s away from Kuta and the party-feel (do the Shaka m8) so although it’s touristy it’s not your typical Australian southern cross tattoo, bin-tang singlet walk around with buckets of alcohol touristy.

Read below on some tips for what to do with your time in Ubud.

Picking Podcasts [2]

Hi Pals,

I listen to around 30 hours of podcast material a week as I’m lucky enough to have a Job where I’m allowed to wear headphones. Depending on what I’m working on, I’ll swap it between music and podcasts.
To check out my previously recommended podcasts, check here.

So, while you’re waiting for a mate, sitting in the doctor’s office for an extra 30 minutes or you’re on a long trip – here’s another list to get you through it.

Not all of them I liked, which I’ll elaborate on – and some I loved. Be aware, Sub Category is just the term I’ve put in to shorten “what I believe it’s all about ” not what it might be.

Podcasts can be listened to on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and Spotify. All links (no affiliates) take you to their main website.
