Melbourne is the land of laneways, so it makes sense that some of the best and quirky little bars in the city are hidden down them too. Boasting little to no signage but great word of mouth. So whether you are looking for a rooftop, a laneway or a hidden cellar there is always something for everyone. Here is a guide to some of my favourites I quite literally stumbled across...

Australia is a huge country, it can fit into Europe or North America on a map, with so much choice or where to go and what to see. But what if you want to settle somewhere for a little while? Australia's state capitals are always a good starting point and with each one being so varied from the next how do you know which one is best for you? Today I am breaking down my experience of 5 of the big cities to get you an idea of which is best for your lifestyle.

687 days. That's how long it has been. 687 days since I changed my life. Since I boarded that first flight bound for uncertainty, for a life that I had never know. For life. That's what Australia gave me, life, or at least a new perspective on it. I never knew when I boarded that first flight how much one person could change in such a small amount of time, but I did. I can barely believe my time here is over however a new adventure calls.

Chatsworth House has to be, by far, one of my favourite places in Derbyshire. The grandeur, the expansive grounds, the events they hold. As a child my parents would take my sister and I up to play on the adventure playground and see the farm yard animals after a walk through the house. For me, it's history and mine, like many others I imagine, are intertwined.

In life it is great to celebrate the little things. Today I guess would be one of those days as it is two years since I pressed publish on its first ever post a while I may not have always been consistent with my writing, my thoughts have never been far from sharing my adventures with the world in a hope to inspire more people to take to the road and change their lives.

Landing in the state capital of Hobart last week was a bit of a chilly departure from my prior adventure in Cairns. If you have been wandering with me over on Instagram you will have seen the shock change there. Landing on a day when the mountain had snow covered tops, winter was truly setting in but honestly, the chill was a wonderful change as it meant I got to pull out the woolly jumpers and hats.

Old Melbourne Gaol during the day we decided to go and see what it was like after hours for a ghost tour. There are 3 to choose between but with the limited time Kay had left in Melbourne we chose to just pot luck it on the Tuesday night.

Inspired to write this post on my flight back to Melbourne from Brisbane after sitting in my low cost airline seat with the gentleman behinds knees in my back for nearly an hour before plucking up the courage to ask him to move his knees after debating for 10 minutes if it would be rude of me to ask I thought maybe I we should start a conversation on what we all think is acceptable on flights?

As I look at bringing TRW into a new lease of life 'Reflections' will become a bit more like a 'Letter from the Editor' or "Behind the Scenes' into my life. I'm not great about writing about myself, heck I barely like having my photo taken but I realise that in the modern age of blogging injecting more "me" into posts is what readers expect and it is then another chance for me to step out of my comfort zone, so I hope you will be patient with me while I do this.

The new year was brought in with friends and fun in Melbournes Docklands watching the fireworks go off across the city, lighting up the sky from every angle, it was incredible to watch. Such a surreal moment but so real at the same time. Have you ever felt like that?
I've been trying to decide on New Years Resolutions but as usual I can't quite finalise them so I will do what I normally do and decide on them at the end of January but for today I want to wish you a Happy New Year and ask "What are your New Year Resolutions?"
