Sydney: The Inner West is Best

While I adore so many places in Australia, it’s fair to say that Sydney is my favorite. It was my introduction to Oz four years ago, and it’s where I kicked off my journey last May. Places speak (or don’t…) to people for different reasons, and Sydney just happens to have me under her spell. […]

Food & Culture You Crave

Q: What do you get when you combine Sydney, festivals, and food? (Hint: this is *not* a trick question) A: A very happy Heather. I haven’t mentioned “City Heather” before, but I kind of like her. When I’m “City Heather”, I’m one of the best versions of myself. I walk with a confident spring in […]

C’ville Eats Tour

Everyone knows where I’m heading, but most people reading this probably don’t know where I’m from! My Twitter profile simply states, “Virginia, USA”, and that’s where I’ve lived for all but eight years of my life. To get more specific, for 12 of the last 14 years I’ve called Charlottesville, Virginia my home. I love […]

A Few of My Favorite Things

Sports. Eating healthy foods. Baking. Dark chocolate. Survivor and The Amazing Race. These are a few of my favorite things! Recently I watched The Sound of Music for the first time in years, and “My Favorite Things” inspired me to write about a few of my own — things that make me smile, that I’ll […]
