Behind The Scenes Of Travel Blogging – Work Diary Video Week 5

This week’s update comes from somewhere a little more glamourous than my dining table. Press play to find out more!

shangri la sydney officeWhere I’m Working:

From a luscious room on the 17th floor of the Shangri-La Sydney. Not only does this hotel come with exemplary service and drool-worthy views but it also has one of the fastest and FREE wifi services offered in the city. Great base for a travel blogger needing internet and inspiration. A full review will follow shortly.

What I’m Reading:

How A Password Changed My Life > loved this article on Medium in which one guy shares how he turned a tedious task into positive changes.

The 18 Ikea Items Found In Every First Apartment > as we’ve been racing around furniture stores over the last few weeks this article made me chuckle. We’re trying to avoid this happening but I can’t deny there will be some Ikea items sneaking into the flat.

What I’ve Been Posting:

naritaA Day In Japan – details of our recent layover in Tokyo Narita

Sweet Treats In Sydney – the results of my dedicated research into Sydney’s cakes

What I’m Working On:

sydneysunset2Sourcing (humble) holiday braggies for Three mobile using Feel At Home. I hope to visit the set of my favourite Aussie soap next week…

What I’m Watching;

More Aussie dramas. Although I miss the US dramas we binged on via Netflix back in London I have found some great Aussie dramas to partially fill the void. We started watching weepy Offspring this week and got hooked on the love lives of 4 couples living in a shared house in Coogee (thank you Wonderlust).

What I’m Eating:

Got any questions you would like me to answer next week about living in Sydney or working as a travel blogger? Leave them in the comments below and I’ll include them in the next vid.

    Sounds incredible (actually bliss). What else would a blogger need?

      Maybe chocolate (they did send some up but I ate it all before getting a picture!)
