About Me

Hey, I'm Fiona!


Originally from London I have joined the thousands of Brits that now call Australia home. It was a journey in itself to get here, one that started over a decade ago when I started my first real travelling. 

I did the typical school, uni job route before deciding I needed to see more of the world. It was time to see something different, experience travel as it should be and South America was top of the list for me. I left London in the snow and arrived in Rio in 40 degree heat. From that day on the travel bug firmly took hold and since then i've travelled over 30 countries with my bucket list ever expanding.

The natural world is more my passion so I'm more likely to be found in National Parks than hitting the big cities. I'm a water baby and nearly always have my swimsuit under whatever I'm wearing so if there's a chance to dip, swim, snorkel, SUP or dive I'm ready to go!

After 10 years working in an office I decided to take some time out to travel a bit more and start this blog to share my love of exploring this planet with other travellers. I hope you enjoy it!

Eventually I decided on The Philippines and I wanted to pack in as much as I could. After a lot of recommendations and research I figured out a plan but of course each of the things I wanted t...

The waters around the Philippines are a playground for snorkelers and divers and my plan for this trip was to spend as much time in the water as possible and to tick a few new things off my bucketlist. Day 2 I snorkelled with whale sharks, something I’d dreamt of for years so I was pumped and hopeful about my chances of also seeing manta rays.

I’d read about Manta Bowl, a cleaning station for manta rays, that can be reached on...

Putting your mask beneath the surface and coming face to face with the biggest fish in the ocean is a surreal, electric experience. The sheer size of whale sharks should be daunting but these majestic creatures quickly put you at ease as they slowly, elegantly glide through the water beneath you.

7107 islands make up The Philippines but it was the crystal clear azure waters and exploring what lies beneath that drew me there. 3...

So many times I've tried and failed to visit the famous Figure 8 pools, I must have done every other walk in the National Park before I actually arrived at a suitable time to visit Figure 8!  

The rock platform that houses the pools is only visible and safe to visit at low tide which for a good part of the year is super early or late and usually just for a window of a few hours meaning you have to time your trip correctly.
