You’ve somehow stumbled across my new blog, The Backyard Traveller, and are probably wondering what it’s all about…

I’ve always toyed with the idea of writing a travel blog. Lots of people have suggested it to me, and I myself have thought so whilst writing out lengthy emails full of travel tips and advice for friends.

Self-admittedly though, none of these thoughts ever translated into any action, and so for now, that time has passed.

Now, finding myself back home in Newcastle, Australia after 3 years abroad, unemployed and a little bit uninspired, I’ve decided it’s time to do something to celebrate the gorgeous place I call home, and how much it’s grown and changed in the time I’ve been gone.

So if you’re massively behind the times like I am, follow my ‘adventures’ as I explore the new, and not so new in Newcastle; rediscovering my favourite local gems, and finally visiting all the places I’ve never been to that I probably should have.
