Behind The Scenes Of Travel Blogging – My Week Vlog 6

This week’s vlog comes from Melbourne and will be the last one on this blog before it’s all change!

lyall hotelWhere I’m Working:

From the Lyall Hotel and Spa in Melbourne’s South Yarra. The service has been seriously impressive and breakfast in front of a roaring fire is the ONLY way to do winter in Melbourne. Full review will be live later this week.

What I’m Reading:

LOVED this article on the Bustle – What I Intagrammed versus What Was Really Happening (Or My Entire Life Is A Lie). Think we’re all guilty of some of these crimes.

Dear FourSquare: A Break Up Letter – this Medium author shares my annoyance at Foursquare separating out check ins into another app entirely. Why, why would you do that?

The room with the best view ever > my review of Shangri La Hotel Sydney.

A Day In Summer Bay > yup I really did take a Home & Away Tour in Sydney.

Let me take a selfie > my favourite apps for editing selfies.

The Expat Guide To Aussie Lingo – as I have no idea what people are saying.

A Change Would Do You Good –  a major change is coming to 40before30 this very Friday.

Guide to a stylish weekend in Madrid for Travelling Shopaholic as well as a list of the World’s Most Fashionable Hotels.

5 of my favourite Sydney bakeries for Urban Adventures.

melbourne coffeeWhat I’m Working On:

The relaunch!! Planning, writing and curating heaps of cool new content and doing all the techy bits behind the scenes necessary to get the new site ready. Also working on a guide to Melbourne for Urban Adventures and putting together a photo essay of my tried-and-tested travel tips for No 1 Traveller.

What I’m Watching:

Harvey in Suits (can’t take my eyes off him.) There is no Netflix in Oz so we’ve installed Chromecast to watch our favourite series instead.

What I’m Eating:

Big breakfasts with heaps of avocado and ALL THE COFFEE in Melbourne.

Pop back on Friday when the new look will be revealed. To see last week’s diary filmed from the Shangri La Sydney click here.
