About Happiness and Things

Happiness and Things is a travel blog for smart travellers. Travellers who are keen to make the most of their limited time off. Travellers who like to make it count. This blog aims at offering travellers of all ages inspiration and tips before they set off to visit new places.

My inquisitive mind likes to explore the little things in life, the unexpected, the underrated, the gems. It’s all about experiencing a destination with all our heart and soul. To take home memories that will last us forever.

About me

I am not a backpacker. I am married. I am over 30. I have two children. Digital nomading and eternal travel isn’t possible for me. But that doesn’t mean that I cannot travel. You can have great experiences even when you are not on the road all the time. It is just a matter of careful planning, opening your mind and having fun! On Happiness and Things I show my readers how to achieve that.

I love to write inspirational and informative stories about the places I have visited –

Australia (Sydney, Country NSW, Queensland, Outback NT, Melbourne, Great Ocean Road, Fiji, Samoa, New Caledonia, Indonesia, Germany, Paris, Italy, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Greece, Malta, England, Scotland, New Zealand’s North Island.

Cooperations and Partnerships

In the past I have worked with the Ministry of Tourism of the Republic of Indonesia, Great Ocean Road Tourism, Visit Greece, Starfish Blue in Fiji, various Sydney restaurants and cafés, Carnival Cruise Lines, Around About travel app, Barilla Australia, Manly Tourist Cards, The Rocks Sydney, Lake Macquarie Tourism, Newcastle Tourism, Destination NSW, Webjet and lots more.

I believe in inspiring my readers through personal story telling and sharing personal experiences that they can relate to while at the same time aligning these with the key messages of the selected destinations.

My readers are predominantly female, between 25 and 45 and live in Australia, the US, the UK, Malaysia, and Singapore. They have a sizeable income, may or may not have children (which doesn’t stop them from exploring the world), and come from an educated background. Happiness and Things’s followers want to look deeper into an attraction or a destination, they want to experience with all their senses and make smart decisions about how they want to spend their precious time and their money.

I am open to introducing selected brands to my readers, however the chosen brands need to align with Happiness and Things’ key message of maximising travel experiences for the smart traveller.

Paid press trips, famils, tours and invitations to hotels, tours, destinations, attractions, etc. help me collect material and learn about exciting destinations and tourism products.
