It was time for two of my PhD pals and myself to skip town again for a couple of days. We left our unread articles, half done analyses, and frustrating ethics reports behind us, for three nights in Hobart! We did our first “mini-vacay” over a year ago, so we knew it was time for another (go here to read […]
This day-to-day life of a PhD student is a little different, because rather than sitting at my computer for hours, I was exploring the beautiful island state of Tasmania with two of my PhD pals! 8:42am: All ready to leave the hotel for the big day ahead! It rained for the entire weekend so it was nice to see some […]
It is my birthday today & I am turning 24, so to celebrate I thought I would write a 24 item Bucketlist. I realised recently just how fragile & short life is, so I thought it was about time to work out what I want to achieve and start ticking things off. So here goes…. Visit Iceland See a wild […]
I thought I would provide a list of my five current favourite instagrams, because I love discovering new accounts & sharing those that inspire me. Worldwanderlust: https://www.instagram.com/worldwanderlust/ Brooke has been my favourite travel blogger for years now ( & I was lucky enough to meet her in person). She doesn’t post as frequently anymore, but she will still give you major […]
I was lucky enough to get offered two teaching positions this semester, which I have really enjoyed (even with all the craziness of life that has been happening). Then I was even luckier because I was asked to do an hour guest lecture for the sustainable tourism course that I teach for. I was so excited and nervous when I […]
As a conservation psychology researcher I may be biased, but I think one of the best ways to help soothe your soul is to get out into nature. So that is exactly what some of my best friends and I did. We choose Lorne on the Great Ocean Road because it is a place I went last year with Jake […]
Jake & I thought it was time to take Frodo (our 5 month old German Shepherd) on his first trip to the beach. So we hit the road to Jake’s family shack and let Frodo explore until he got so tired that couldn’t keep his eyes open! Check out some of the photos & the vlog below! Vlog!
A couple of weeks ago Jake and I went on a last minute road trip for one night to catch some waves and beach hop across the coast. See more photos here: https://drofwhat.com/2017/03/21/photo-blog-spontaneous-surf-sleepover/?iframe=true&theme_preview=true And check out the short clip from our adventures below!
I am unsure whether driving over three hours for one night and one day of surfing, is commitment or stupidity. To be truthful it actually ended up being hopeful, as the place we wanted to surf was completely flat! Not even an inch of a wave. Luckily though, we did find some waves, and also many stunning views which made […]
