MORANS FALLS | LAMINGTON NATIONAL PARK

 


Over the long weekend, there's nothing better to do than leave the craziest of life behind and go into nature to hike and explore. Morans Falls is located in UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests in South East, Queensland, Australia. The Morans Falls track is only 6.2km return walk that gives you magnificent views of the 80m Moran Falls and the Morans Creek Gorge!

OCTOBER MONTHLY FAVOURITES & Hello 2020!

Hello 2020! 

Can't believe my last blog post was back in July 2019.. its not to late to start with 'January October monthly favourites' right? Who ever thought that 2020 would bring the whole world into a lockdown?? No travelling, seeing friends or family, working from home, can't go more than 5km from home, shortage of toilet paper and carbohydrates foods etc.. what a year! I think its safe to say that we're all looking forward to 2021! 

Going back to last year, 2019.. I did quite a bit of travelling and went to South Korea, China, Abu Dhabi, Serbia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Croatia & Italy! I also traveled by myself internationally for the first time ever!! I realised I definitely like having a travel buddy! I also did zip lining which is always so fun at Mount Tamborine and I also tried paddle boarding for the first time in OPEN WATERS at Byron Bay Beach and never again will I do paddle boarding at a beach! I definitely need to try again BUT in a canal, to get use to it! 

As for this year in January, I got to finally see my all time favourite tennis player Novak Djokovic play. I travelled to Melbourne and saw KAWS: Companionship in The Age of Loneliness Exhibition, hosted a few BBQs and made a Lotus biscoff Cheesecake! Had day drips to Noosa, picnics in the Park, did some hiking and ate a lot of yummy Korean food! 

Unfortunately my travels for this year is a no go and to think that in only 37 days I would be heading of to explore Japan for the first time seeing Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima etc Ahh makes me so sad!! Hoping for next year I get to explore the beautiful country Japan and of course make a cheeky stop over by South Korea as well! Here are some photos of 2020 so far..

A QUICK GUIDE TO SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA


Seoul, South Korea is home to 9.776 million people and is also home to many well known landmarks such as; Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village, N Seoul Tower etc. Seoul, is such a large and an exciting city. I have never expected Seoul to be filled with many huge mountains and land area. Not only is Seoul huge, but also a fun and vibrant city filled with so many things to see and do. I can surely say you will never be bored in Seoul. I've never had such an amazing experience like I did in Seoul,  I can say it's my one of favourite city's ever. 


WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE VISITING  S E O U L 

  • The local currency is the South Korea Won. 
  • Going by Taxis is cheaper than you think! (But not so if you're going to Gangnam). Taking the trains (subway) is super cheap, and easy to get around (Don't forget to purchase a T-Money card). 
  • Take the time to learn a few basic phrases: "annyeonghaseyo" ("Hello"), "juseyo" ("Please"), and my favourite is "kamsahamnida" ("Thank You").
  • No tipping is required!
