  • Falls Festival – Tasmania, 2014

    Le Sunshine

    First published on Groupie Magazine.

    I stepped off the plane and the wind nearly threw me off the top of the stairs as rain stung my face. It was my first visit to Tasmania and it was a severe welcome. I would quickly learn that summer is a relative term here.

    A car full of mates met me outside and we wasted no time with pleasantries. The car was loaded with camping gear and we headed east, to Marion Bay. Falls Festival prides itself on its remote and leafy locales and this most Southern of the shows was tucked alongside Hobart with thick bush to the North and the ocean to the South. As we drove towards grey skies we all focused on the music that would keep us warm for the next three days.

  • Quito, the plaza, the heart

    Quito

    Petey looks at the world with eyes open wider than most, he’s wise beyond his years and this week we’re lucky to be featuring his latest story. It’s a snapshot of Quito, in Ecuador, it’s a journey through indecision and a study on following your gut…

    Quito, the Plaza, the heart, in which all of life converges in a mismatched mix of old and young, jaded and new, energy and calm. After nine months on the road, and almost a month in solitude, it is exactly what I need.

    Angourie

    My head was pounding but I sped up to a run nonetheless. Well not really running, more jogging awkwardly, trying to shake out stiff muscles from sleeping on a roll-mat and super keen to check the surf.

    To have a good time, like a REALLY good time; you have to ignore time. You can’t be at the mercy of deadlines or watching you watch. There shouldn’t be anywhere you’d rather be than right where you are.

  • On-the-road, a retrospective. (So many legends…)

    I was traveling for two months.  Thanks to my friends being such huge legends… I managed to avoid staying in any hotels. From Indonesia to Europe I was welcomed with so much hospitality that it blew my mind.

    Traveling on your own can be hard. Sure, I love spending my days aimlessly exploring new cities, being able to follow any whim that takes me, but come night-time there’s often a sense of longing for a good friend to share your adventures with. On this trip I had the best of both worlds. While my buddies went to work I could wander exotic streets or do some work of my own, and come evening times there was always a home to come back to.

    More often than not there were nights out and wine and debauchery, parties and dinners, but also, and just as good, were the quiet nights spent on the couch talking about travel, about home and about the world.

  • A day in the life of Malmo

    Summer in Sweden is brief, which makes it all the more precious. The months that are grey and wet and bitterly cold far outweigh those that are sunny and effortless. It ensures a certain appreciation for the sunshine, for blue skies and for the outdoors.
