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.
