The Proposal

A little over a month ago my partner and I got engaged. I’m quite private with my relationship, but it feels nice to share such an important moment in life. We’ve been together for a long time and it wasn’t a question of whether we would get engaged, so much as when would we get engaged. I’m […]

48 Hours in Los Angeles

There’s a certain charm to walking down palm-tree lined streets with gentle sun rays dancing upon your skin. It was supposed to be midwinter, and while some parts of the United States were hitting subzero temperatures, I was soaking up the rays in the perpetually sunny Los Angeles. With only 48 hours in the City of […]

Hearty Modern Indian Food? Yes, Horn Please!

With a wood fireplace crackling away and the sweet scent of aromatic curries, Horn Please in Fitzroy North was the perfect dining experience for a winter’s night out. It was a typically cold Melbourne night in June, and rugged up in my winter coat, the frosty wind still permeated though my body, but entering the […]
