The best way to describe the Blue Mountains would be that it's the Grand Canyon of Australia, but covered in trees; eucalyptus trees mostly (how it got the name the Blue Mountains). People travel here for amazing nature hikes and panoramic cafe views. The scenery was breath-taking. As we climbed down the trail there were massive waterfalls … Continue reading A Peek at the Blue Mountains
Sorry I have been MIA! Unfortunately, my computer had a virus and wouldn't let me access my blog, but I am happy to say that Little Brantley is back- and has lots of new material 🙂 So lets catch up on lost time: I am currently living in Sydney and working full time. I have … Continue reading I’m Back!
My dream of roaming around Sydney on the back of a kangaroo was short lived when I realized Australians don't actually do that (only joking).

I think it is safe to say that this is on just about everyone's bucket list and now I know why. The serenity … Continue reading The Great Barrier Reef
Imagine turquoise water so clear you can see straight to the bottom, coral in neon green and bright purple, and sunsets that pierce the sky with pink rays of light...well that pretty much sums up Hamilton Island. The main reason we booked a trip to Hamilton was to visit the Great Barrier Reef, but it … Continue reading Hamilton Island
Brekkie: My favorite breakfast spot in Melbourne (and possibly the world) is Hardware Societe. I discovered it on my last trip here and had to go back! It has a bit of a wait during peak hours, but I promise it’s worth it. I had the “un baked egg” again and my mom ordered the … Continue reading Best Restaurants in Melbourne
Dear Recent (or soon to be) Graduate, If you are anything like me, you probably have no clue what you want to do with your life and if one more distant relative asks you, you might just throw that glass of wine in their face (because let’s be honest, the only way to get through … Continue reading Little Brantley’s Travel Inspo
