The author of this Travel Blog SilkeHello! If you are bound to your desk for most of the year but still love to visit new places, then Happiness and Things is the perfect travel blog for you.

It is my mission to show you how you can maximise your travel experiences.

I want to provide you with the right information so that you can plan your next itinerary, inspire you to look beyond the boring pool-and-kids-club offerings (while still making it worthwhile for the kids), and I want to introduce you to a new style of travelling that engages all your senses.

Let me inspire you to live in the moment. Let’s make it count.

Let’s stay in touch!

Find me on your preferred social media channels for amazing photos, travel tips for busy people, and beautiful things.

Get inspired. Live in the moment. Make it count.

Work with me!

Happiness and Things is one of Sydney’s leading travel blogs and one of 24 travel blogs to look out for in 2016 according to Queensland Tourism. My readers are travellers who want to make it count. They look for the most amazing travel experiences at home and abroad. They may just be casual travellers but they know that careful planning, proper information and smart decisions are key to creating unforgettable moments. They follow me as I explore the most stunning destinations and they dream of visiting too one day, alone, as a family or as a romantic escape.

Does your brand fit into this? Then I think we need to talk.
