About Me


Just moved to Melbs after living in beautiful Saigon for 2 years. Very excited to check out the city and to make it my new home.

I"m a halfie (Viet/Aus) and was grew up just outside Washington D.C. I've lived in the US/Vietnam/ and Australia. Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved to travel and experience different cultures and lifestyles. I’m laid back, easy going, love to laugh, and try not to take life too seriously!


Live every week like its shark week


Music. I"m such a music fanatic! Live Music/gigs/festivals. Swimming. Cycling. Mountain Biking. Cooking, especially veggie/vegan treats. Being outside on a sunny day. Reading. Picnics. Music Blogging. Photography. Friends. Herbal Teas. and Wine. lots of wine!

A recent mountain biking trip I did in the mountains of Dalat, Vietnam was pretty incredible. Trekking outside of Luang Prabang, Laos and spending time with local villagers was also a beautiful trip. Too many beautiful adventures to list!
