Who travels to Paris and skips the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and Angelina’s?

Yep, that’d be me. I didn’t visit any museums, OD on pastries and sweets, or try snails or any other French delicacies on my recent week-long trip to Paris.

Guess what, guys? I’m back in the US right now!

But not for long, though. I felt like I should take advantage of being on this side of the world for a wedding and cross the pond afterwards for a little European frolicking on my way back to Sydney.

I’ve made it my mission to sample wine throughout Australia these past couple years.

Which is a little strange for someone who constantly claims to be “not much of a drinker”, I know, but that’s just a testament to how amazing Aussie wine can be.

Last Sunday, I was instructed to meet at Taylor Square in Sydney at 6:30am to be picked up to go 4WD-ing around the Blue Mountains.

That’s literally all I knew about the adventure I was about to embark on.

There’s a particularly magical time of year in Sydney, just before the weather takes a turn for the cold, when the city quite literally lights up: Vivid Sydney.

For about three weeks (this year it’s 26 May – 17 June), each night from 6-11pm there are colorful light projections splashed onto various buildings and landmarks around the city, with other vibrant art installations and displays spread throughout the CBD and surrounds.

The truth is, if you practice healthy spending and saving habits in your daily life, there’s no reason you can’t do the same while visiting Australia.
