Scotland, you beauty. I was in awe as we drove around the many old towns, lochs and glens of Scotland, it truly is a breathtaking part of the United Kingdom! This post isn't a how-to guide, or anything remotely helpful.... What it is though, is a virtual escape through late winter Scotland, and a heavy dose of "I need to go see this myself". I hope you like the photos!
It's been a busy few months full of new ideas and exciting adventures. So - sorry for leaving you all hanging! I decided to just go and live life for a while, and have a bit of a low-key brainstorm about what content I want to send out to you. In this post I let you know a little about what I've been up to, and what's happening on the blog - there's a whole new addition coming soon! So check it out, and let me know what you think!
Lifestyle design means examining your life, career, goals and values and thinking about how you can make these things align sooner rather than later. You should be able to create a life that makes you happy and feel fulfilled, and I want to share how this can be a reality! This can include what you choose to do as a career or job, as a hobby, in your spare time.... Big or small, lifestyle design is achievable. Read about how I'm making it happen for me, and you can too. (Plus join our facebook group - coming soon!).
Burleigh Heads is a small but gorgeous part of the Gold Coast, right between Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta. It is a surfers dream, with surf suitable for all levels and plenty of activities to keep people entertained! It has heart, cafes and shops to die for, and a lifestyle to be envious of... We spent a week here, and here is my list of the best things to do in Burleigh Heads!
What I love about AirBnB is the option of connecting with locals – some houses are all to yourself, and in others you are sharing with the hosts. This gives a great feel for what the people are like, how they live their lives, and they can give great recommendations for the best things to see, do and eat. Read all about our first AirBnB experience in Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast :)
For this weeks inspiration collection, I've drawn from my own niche - travel bloggers! There is a wealth of them on the blogosphere, and they have a fantastic amount of daydream material.

Today is the first in the inspiration series, where I do a round up of links and articles that I've found intriguing or inspiring in some way. When you are focused on a creative field or hobby, the best thing you can do for your creativity is look at fields other than yours and find inspiration there! Here's what I've found this week....
We all need to step out of the box occasionally - traveling included! Don't always stick to the same types of activities, check out the lesser known or more unusual activities wherever you are. I have begun reviewing all of my share-worthy activities on Tripadvisor, so you can find great new things to do on your travels through New Zealand and beyond - cruisey or adventurous!
For a month at the beginning of this year, I was privileged enough to spend time with some very interesting people - my partners grandparents. They flew from the UK to spend a month with us. Here's the interesting part - they are almost completely blind. I quizzed them both about what lures them to travel, and how they deal with the difficulties of navigating the world without sight.
