23 signs you’re a traveller in Australia

We're all well-aware of the thousands of people that head to countries like Thailand, Australia and New Zealand each year to 'find themselves' and it seems like every one of them (including myself) epitomises the cliché traveller, regardless of their background, upbringing or which demographic they are part of.

Manly – Sydney’s coffee hub

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted, I've been drinking an unhealthy amount of coffee and mixing it with some late, eventful nights. It's actually got to the stage now where I'd rather go on a coffee date than a drinks date because the coffee is so damn good here.

Hostel life – a guide to not p***ing off those around you

So it's come to my attention that I'm snoring like a motherf***er, which I can imagine is an incredible pain in the backside for anyone trying to sleep near me.
