The Second Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

After a busy and brilliant first day, our second day wasn’t looking any quieter. But who really goes to New York City to relax?! I was particularly excited for day two- the day of Central Park and the Empire State. And I assure you, it didn’t disappoint. The day went from a quiet park walk […]

The First Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

Last week I hopped on a plane with my best friend Tarryn to take on the Big Apple. The city of big lights, big skylines and big names. After Tarryn insisted we go to New York to see her favourite band, Tegan and Sara, we only had a few months to save up and plan […]

A Boy and a Giraffe


Kathventures

For the boyfriend’s 21st birthday, my mum gave him a meet a giraffe experience (Aaron’s favourite animal) which, by extension, meant I was able to go along too. Months later, Aaron and I finally booked the trip for August and it had been something we were both really looking forward to. Even though I couldn’t […]

Port de Pollenca | Mallorca


Kathventures

Last week I holidayed in the beautiful blue Port de Pollenca, located in northern Mallorca with a promenade of restaurants, bars and gift shops that overlook the lovely bay. I visited for seven days with my boyfriend and his family, as well as his sister’s boyfriend. I stayed there about seven years before and the […]

A Writer Abroad: The Travel Journal


Kathventures

Since holidaying in Malta last year, I’ve tried to keep a travel journal from the moment I pop on a plane until the moment I leave my new favourite place. Although I haven’t always been successful in completing a trip’s worth of stories and they aren’t always substantial entries, I am a big advocate of […]

A Sunday with Cheese, Chilli and Beer


Kathventures

Like all of our other friends last weekend, Aaron and I headed to a festival. Oh, no… notĀ thatĀ festival. Aaron and I are massive foodies and Aaron is also super interested in growing his own vegetables. A peek out of the window Sunday morning revealed an overcast but perfectly pleasant day ahead (and a pretend photographer’s […]

Villa Borghese | When in Rome


Kathventures

Villa Borghese is a public park that is charming for all of the right reasons; and some of the wrong reasons. Probably season-dependent, but the grass was tired and unkept. This only increased its attractiveness, and complimented its brilliant fountains, glorious reflections and quiet park benches. All the while, its views, museums, bicycles and lively […]

Rome from my Favourite Points of View


Kathventures

A bumpy and brilliant skyline against easy blue sky and fluffy white clouds. Picture perfect green dots that protect the river elegantly flowing through the city. The silhouette of concrete magnificence that teases an even better view when you see it up close. Rome’s beauty is just like the books say and it is from […]

Day Three: Four Scoops | When in Rome


Kathventures

Sunday promised another blue-skied, beaming-sun kind of day- just a few degrees cooler than the two days prior. Although we did question our weather apps, claiming this fact. And I guess that accounts for why we tested out a total of four scoops of gelato on Sunday. We needed cooling down, after all. Sunday began […]

Day Two: 40,000 Steps | When in Rome


Kathventures

Saturday opened its eyes without a struggle. A heavy and well-deserved sleep ensured this. Fuelled by our busy itinerary, my brother and I got ready and headed to a local cafe for the hotel’s complimentary breakfast. After an awesome day one in Rome, we were eager to get our feet back on the dusty pavement. […]
