Brisbane Coffee - Bonsai Botanika

While in Brisbane I decided to try my first cafè out to see how Brisbane's coffee matched up to Melbourne, possibly an unfair comparison, and after a little research decided to try Bonsai Botanika on Elizabeth Street.

Melbourne - Sea Life Aquarium

Last friday I headed into the city to meet Clare for a day of wander round the sea life center in melbourne. For Clare this would be her first weekend back in a big city after being on the farm and honestly I remember how confusing making your way around that can be when you are used to one street towns for 3 months. For me it was a perfect way of distracting myself from my friend Sara having left Melbourne and had an enforced day off work as I had be trail blazing and gone into work-a-holic mode again.

The Reluctant Wanderlust turns 1!

I can hardly believe its been a over year since I started my blog, knowing I was going to heading to Australia and seeing more of this beautiful blue marble we call home. It seems crazy reading back on all the things I have done since I sat in Heathrow airport waiting to catch my flight to a new life and everything else that came with that first ticket to adventure.

Since then I have rushed up the Great Ocean Road, spent a night underground at Coober Pedy, seen sunrise , sunset and the Milky Way at Uluru, walked Kings Canyon, chased crocodiles at Kakadu, wandered on the purest sand in the world at Whitehaven Beach, skydived in Byron Bay, bounced around Sydney and so much more.

I am truly grateful to have had every experience that has come to me both good and bad I don't even recognise the girl I was a year ago, though sometimes she comes back into my life, I am more confident, open to new possibilities and relaxed than I ever was in the UK. I am also so grateful to everyone of you who has taken this journey with me, sent words of encouragement and inspiration you really are a blessing to me and hearing your stories and meeting some of you has been fantastic.

So here is to many more hopeful, adventurous and crazy years. Where ever the wanderlust takes me I hope you are still there by my side.

Love and thanks,

Emily Louise x

Reflections :: 8 Months

The last 8 months have gone so quickly I'm not even sure where they went but I have enjoyed the journey. The last month has been more difficult than some recently with working lots of hours, out of choice being the work-a-holic I am, and my best friend leaving Melbourne. I have been, to put it nicely, a bit of a mess.

Melbourne Coffee - Grace

Sunday after my birthday my good and gorgeous sister from another mama Sara took me out for Brunch to celebrate the passing of another year of life. As I have mentioned before Sara knows where to take me for good Coffee and brunch and Grace in Fitzroy was no exception.
