When I began studying philosophy i was often told “it’ll change the way you think”. Stubborn and naive me thought “we’ll see about that!”. However now, on reflection, I can see that my pre-philo days were spent being an information eating machine. Enter Fact A and Produce Regurgitated Essay B. I was next to incapable of exploring my own mind, despite having so many thoughts and so much to say.
Now, I see how in every day activities and tasks I am facing a more balanced attitude. Continue reading “Can Philosophy Change The Way You Think?”

Always up for trying new things, and especially when art is involved I was eager to visit (and sniff!) this exhibition as soon as I came across it. Continue reading “What To Do This Week In London – Perfume at Somerset House”

Here you’ll find what I managed to cram into my weekend and what can be achieved on a budget friendly, two-day visit. Continue reading “A Weekend In Prague – 2 Day Itinerary”
I’ve seen articles, posters, and all types of merchandise using “Catch Flights Not Feelings” as a motto to comment on the idea of motivating young people to explore the world and visit new places, instead of looking to develop an emotional connection to someone and committing to staying put in the pursuit of emotional stability from a relationship.
Sounds cool right? Rebellious almost, to defy conventional standards of searching for a partner and instead searching for an adventure. Continue reading “Catch Flights Not Feelings – Why Not Both?”
Any trip away is met with a panic about taking your most treasured items away from their home, and I’m sure I’m not the only one to get paranoid about whether you’ll be the unlucky story of that person who’s luggage went missing, or whose belongings were stolen, lost, or left behind. While there is a certain amount of chance involved in these situations, I found a few preventative measures helped to put my mind at ease, and at least when I did eventually end up in crisis situations I felt a little better equipped to handle it!
We all get holiday blues on return from travelling, and as a part time traveller I’ve seen plenty of friends and colleagues visit the beautiful places I experienced while I’m doing the daily grind. Besides the obvious envy over the wonderful time they’ve had I’ve been wondering what I would have done differently and what I wish I could see again in more detail.

Suggestions are most certainly welcome – sharing is caring! Continue reading “Wanderlist”
To celebrate a few recent family events we decided to splash out and enjoy dinner at The Landmark Hotel in Marylebone, where the Winter Garden restaurant invites class, fine dining, and a haven of peace within busy central London. The perfect way to feel fancy (for once!), we relished the chance to enjoy such a treat.
While working from home in New Zealand free time throughout the week was mostly spent chilling out, enjoying the sunshine, and staying close to home in order to get enough rest for an early work start. However, we still had the pleasure of enjoying some delicious meals out and about Christchurch, and discover some unique bars to have a drink at. While there are loads of places to eat and drink out and about, here are some of my favourite spots around the city!
It’s a cliche to say that travelling changes you but in reality, it happens to most of us.

And it doesn’t stop there. I’ve continued to reflect and learn since returning from a long trip, and making sense of the major highs and lows along the journey. Let’s review the most important lessons I’ve discovered from exploring the world!

In part 1 of Suzy’s Suitcase, here’s just a few of the essential packing items I would recommend taking on a long trip. Continue reading “Suzy’s Suitcase: What To Take Travelling”
