It started with a riot. A legit, locals vs. police, shouting, shoving, pushing, RIOT. But before you start freaking out - Mum, Dad, Karen, Zoe, Jules and all those wondering... Yes, I am safe. My few hours in Malaga after flying in from Prague were painful. I arrived at the Villa past 10:30PM, was locked … Continue reading “Suck It, Devil” – Kyle Carter
So last night when I was typing up about my rainy day the guy next to me kept looking over... And eventually asked where I was from. "Sydney, Australia." "Oh. Okay. I was wondering, because I wanted to know where such a beautiful girl came from." Smooth buddy. Except I'm not interested. And reaching over, taking … Continue reading Where Are You From?
Nope, I have not lost my incredible sense of humour! Neither has God, apparently. So in YWAM we learnt a lot about hearing from God. In Morocco in particular, we spent a lot of time honing in our listening skills; listening for guidance on all sorts of things from walking left or right at an intersection, … Continue reading Should Have Czeched the Weather
So, as I mentioned earlier, when I rocked up to this hostel there was a group reading their Bibles in the lobby area. They were absolutely lovely, and I ended up sitting in on a few of their meetings/over breakfast, and making friends. Then I met a beautiful couple from Chermside (QLD, Australia for all … Continue reading My Divine Coordinator

I had booked my travel arrangements and hostel weeks in advance, I had packed muesli, frozen yogurt, apples, chocolate, my favourite mug and a few … Continue reading NotSoGenius Joy

Next stop, Prague. I'm open to every adventure and challenge before me - I'm just hoping that there aren't … Continue reading No More Snails
Whooooah, that is a corny title. But really, it's true. I just said goodbye to eleven of the best people I know (two still to go) - some I will see again before I head home, some I will see back in Australia, some I'm hoping my path will cross with again this side of heaven. … Continue reading The First Day of the Rest of My Life
Less than 24 hours to go, and we've ended with a bang!Our last week in Rabat was absolutely incredible.We arrived in the villa Wednesday night, and first thing Thursday morning the police showed up on our doorstep! They grilled Zoe and Will about what we were doing, are we re1igious, why is there such a … Continue reading Thanks for the Ride, YW4M!
Yes, it has been a long while since I posted something. In my defence, I did write out a couple different updates, but they never got finished, so I never actually clicked the 'Publish Post' button. My bad.Don't worry - everything has been fine.That is, if you don't count the p0lice showing up on our doorstep … Continue reading Winding Down (Sort Of…)
