I’m a happily married woman living in NSW. I write, and aspire to be published (that’s ‘dream’ aspire, not ‘working at it’).
My husband and I enjoy travelling and I was running a separate site for travel stories. But as of July 2020, this site now includes both my fiction writing, opinion pieces and travel blog.
Born in Ireland, with most of my life in Australia my husband and I have travelled in Ireland and the UK, Canada, Hong Kong, South Africa, Mauritius, Fiji and New Zealand (Auckland); Spain, Greece and Morocco and major cities of Europe.
We’ve experienced New York City and Boston for Christmas – a long held dream that came from a love of Home Alone movies and love of northern hemisphere winters. In 2015, New York and Boston had their warmest winter on record! We did get a beautiful day of snow in Boston!
In 2019, I spent three months in Galway, Ireland. My husband joined me for the last month and then we walked in Tuscany with a friend. 2021 is supposed to be the year of the Scandi cruise (Viking) but with Covid-19, who knows! 2023, to cruise the Mississippi would be amazing!!
You can see that we have the travel bug. It will take a vaccine before we are able to travel overseas again. Let’s hope things improve for everyone and we can continue to explore and experience other countries and cultures.
We’re fortunate that we’ve been able to continue making a living and live in Australia, which is currently seeing a path out of coronavirus. We’ll have to try exploring our own country instead, for a while.
