All I want for Christmas is... a tree covered in salami instead of ornaments 🤔 Only in #Budapest. What would be your dream edible decorations? • I'm working on a Budapest blog post but I keep getting distracted by cheesy Christmas movies. It's an addiction!

Over the years I've worked in a lot of jobs - some good, some not so good (like that time I was a housekeeper for six weeks). But I've always been fortunate to work with the best people. From my Canadian family to this group of legends at @melbournemuseum 💕 We know how to throw a good Christmas party!

This week's throwback Thursday HAS to be a Christmas-related photo. I captured this shot at the Christmas market in Bath last year. The stalls and the surroundings are both so magical 🌟🌟 • Fast forward to this year and my commute today was doubled as I walked home in 36 degree heat. Summer Christmases are grand, sometimes! • • • • #passionpassport#culturetrip#teamkaptainkenny#theeverygirltravels#ichosetowander#theprettycities#darlingescapes#expediapic#iamatraveler#openmyworld#goopgo#wheretofindme#fodorsonthego#beautifuldestinations#traveldeeper#speechlessplaces#cntraveler#mydomainetravels#travelerin#suitcasetravels#mytinyatlas#tlpicks#tasteintravel#livecolorfully#whereitravel#lpfanphoto#visitbath#igersbath#visitengland#omgb

Shoutout to @lalalightning for this fun shot 😘 I love it! With the lettering and lights I feel like I've gone back in time. • If you check out @piccolinagelateria, try either the better than nutella flavour or the nutella fountain (or both, I won't judge).

I'll just enjoy this shop and its pretty decorations from the outside 🎁 I actually enjoyed Christmas shopping yesterday and got quite a few gifts for the family. Now I'm watching a certain sequel to A Christmas Prince on @netflixanz. Told you I'm addicted.

Why yes I did google 'Christmas novels' and then went and immediately reserved a couple at the library 📚 This may be my ultimate Christmas nerd moment and I'm not mad about it.

Here's a little Christmas throwback to Budapest last year, to announce ANOTHER new blog post (I know, I'm never this productive). But I compiled a gift guide for all of my fellow travel addicts out there 🎁 I'm all about the practical presents these days - so much so I asked for a suitcase from Santa this year 😂 • My list include 40+ ideas and links for readers around the world. From small businesses to the best @typoshop has to offer, I've got you covered. Direct link is in my bio NOW. Happy Christmas shopping.

Spending my first day off in 9 days (😒) at my desk, catching up on writing and blogging. I put together a guide on the best Black Friday travel deals, which I highly recommend checking out 😉 • There are so many cheap flights available, including from Australia to Hawaii with Hawaiian Airlines. I mean, this North Shore view looks a lot better than my current rainy one. • Direct link is in bio, friends! • • • • • #passionpassport#culturetrip#teamkaptainkenny#theeverygirltravels#ichosetowander#theprettycities#darlingescapes#expediapic#iamatraveler#openmyworld#goopgo#wheretofindme#fodorsonthego#beautifuldestinations#traveldeeper#speechlessplaces#cntraveler#mydomainetravels#starttheadventure#suitcasetravels#mytinyatlas#tlpicks#tasteintravel#livecolorfully#lpfanphoto#lethawaiihappen#hawaiitag#gohawaiiau#hawaiianairlines#visitoahu

As the sun sets this Sunday I am SO glad this week is behind me 🌅 But drinks with friends after work today made it just a little bit better. Here's to a good and productive week ahead! • This snapshot is from my long weekend in #Adelaide a couple of months ago. Do yourself a favour and check out the sunsets from Glenelg Beach. As a bonus, you'll see plenty of planes land as well 🛬. • • • • • #mydomainetravels#theeverygirltravels#prettylittletrips#darlingescapes#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#teamkaptainkenny#ichosetowander#culturetrip#goopgo#travelblogger#passionpassport#traveldeeper#speechlessplaces#travelpassport#lonelyplanet#abmtravelbug#travelcolorfully#theprettycities#expediapic#lcdotcomloves#travelwithfathom#iamatraveler#wheretofindme#postcardplaces#inspiremyinstagram#seeaustralia#southaustralia

Throwback Thursday... on this day last year I was on a day trip to Bratislava from Vienna. I would much rather be back wandering around Eastern Europe right now. How unique is the architecture? • Remember how I was having a bad day? Guys, it turned into a bad week. My pants ripped at work today and I had to run to @targetaus for a replacement pair 🙄 • Thankfully I have both work and fun plans with friends this weekend to resurrect this hellish week. What are you looking forward to? • #mydomainetravels#theeverygirltravels#prettylittletrips#darlingescapes#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#teamkaptainkenny#ichosetowander#culturetrip#goopgo#travelblogger#exploremore#passionpassport#traveldeeper#traveltagged#speechlessplaces#travelpassport#lonelyplanet#abmtravelbug#travelcolorfully#theprettycities#beautifulmatters#lcdotcomloves#travelwithfathom#iamatraveler#wheretofindme#postcardplaces#inspiremyinstagram#bratislava#slovakia

So here's a little story for you. Back in my first Vancouver days, my old boss came up with a concept called Hales Fails. Because stupid/annoying/clumsy things ALWAYS happen to me 🙈 • This was five years ago and nothing has changed. Today for example. I went to drop off keys at a real estate and was halfway there on the tram when I realised I was missing a set 🤦‍♀️ I retraced my steps to find them sitting on my bed. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so I screamed instead. • Moral of the story: we all have bad days. And I know there are people having worse days than me. But I still think you should cheer me up with some good news and positive vibes ✌🏻 • P.S. East Melbourne is hands down Instagram heaven. I love these cute terraces. • • • • #darlingescapes#mydomainetravels#mydomaine#theeverygirltravels#theeverygirl#flashesofdelight#mytinyatlas#teamkaptainkenny#ichosetowander#culturetrip#goopgo#cntraveler#traveldeeper#lpfanphoto#britstagram#wheretofindme#postcardplaces#speechlessplaces#theconstantlycurious#wherewewander#melbourne#seeaustralia#wandervictoria#melbmoment#visitmelbourne#melbourneiloveyou#passionpassport#beautifuldestinations#beautifulmatters#expediapic

Melbourne has got to be one of the only places in the world that has two sports-related public holidays within six weeks of each other. Not even the rest of Australia gets days off for the AFL (Australian football) Grand Final and Melbourne Cup Day (horse racing). But I'll take the extra money at work 😉 • Do you have any interesting public holidays where you live? • • • • • #passionpassport#culturetrip#teamkaptainkenny#theeverygirltravels#ichosetowander#theprettycities#darlingescapes#expediapic#iamatraveler#openmyworld#goopgo#wheretofindme#fodorsonthego#beautifuldestinations#traveldeeper#speechlessplaces#cntraveler#mydomainetravels#travelerin#suitcasetravels#mytinyatlas#tlpicks#tasteintravel#livecolorfully#lonelyplanet#melbmoment#visitmelbourne#melbourneiloveyou#wandervictoria#seeaustralia

Does any city do brunch better than Melbourne? I think the city is in a league of its own. This is what a full breakfast looks like here 🤤 • Are you a sweet or savoury breakfast person?

A little flashback Friday this week to sunsets in sweet Seattle 🎡 In case you missed it, you can click the link in bio and read my entire North America itinerary. In three months I did a massive circle from Vancouver and back again. It was an epic adventure I'll remember forever! • I also have to say thanks for the positive vibes last week guys.
