Choooze the right shoe’s

As long as they’re not croc’s, you’ll be fine. Kidding but not really. Comfortable shoes to travel in make or break your trip.

  • BIRKENSTOCKS

Ya didn’t hear it here first but i’m going to mention these absolute godsends once again. They are on the more of a pricey purchase but they last forever, are so good for our feet and postures and are sustainable(don’t have to purchase rubber thongs every 6 months… or worry about blow outs for that matter). They’re pleasant on our lowest limbs that do ever so much for us aka carry us across the world and can wear with any outfit. WIN WIN WIN.

  • Don’t take shoes you won’t actually use

Be realistic with your shoe packing. Shoes are generally bulky and awkward sized items to pack not to mention TAKE US ALOT OF ROOM! I once took hiking boots tied onto my backpack while travelling for 1 month and only used them ONCE- what a pain in the arse they were to carry around. Note to self: never do that again. If anything like winter boots, hiking boots, water shoes are needed on your travels you could always hire!

  • Comfortable socks and bandaids

Splash a bit more cash on socks/double sock if you are doing intense walking on your travels. Bandaid’s can most likely be bought anywhere in the world but good to have on hand if you ever feel blisters approaching!

  • A decent pair of workout shoes

Money well spent, always. These will keep you active on your trip at the same time as keeping your feet happy. Brands I like are Sketchers, Asics and Nike. (Also Converse if they count). If you’re in Australia- buy these brands anywhere else lol, they’ll be cheaper.

  • A pair of something cheap to shower in

If you’re hostelling, you’ll most likely want to keep something on your feet while you shower… just in case. Cough, hygiene. This is something you could purchase while you’re away or take with you.

6 Of my all time favourite quotes

Quotes that I find inspiring and uplifting if ever in need. You know those quotes you hear or read and they just ‘make sense’? These 6 quotes are those for me, enjoy!

Be the energy you want to attract

Starting it off with a bang. I loved this quote when I first heard it about three years ago and its stuck ever since. I really make a conscious effort now when I meet people to introduce myself first, be confident, happy and make positive conversation. We tend to mirror mannerisms and habits of other people, so I feel like this is the best way to be when briefly ‘meeting people’. I really try and be as uplifting as possible when I’m around friends and family also. It makes a difference.

Getting it done is better than doing it perfectly

This can apply to so many different aspects of life. When we try, attempt or give anything a go at least we’ve put in the thought and followed it with an action. Sometimes we can really overthink things instead of just starting, and we’re all going to fail at things- it’s called life.

We are what we eat and the company we keep

This truly couldn’t be more accurate. Who we spend our time with deciphers a lot about our attitude, the activities we partake in, the language we use etc. ASWELL as the food/fuel we put into our bodies. We eat potato we look like pOtAtO… You get my gist πŸ˜› Good food and even better friends/family are important!

Lions don’t lose sleep over sheep

One more time for the people in the back! Why have some of us had sleepless nights thinking about shitty people and/or scenarios? I think we’ve all been here. What a waste of worrying, stress and most importantly… ZzZzZz’s haha. People that don’t mean anything to us are just that. Irrelevant. Not worth a thought πŸ™‚ You’re a LION! Reow

Nothing lasts forever/never say never

You could take this quote as either optimistic or pessimistic but I think of it as both. Its hybrid. Bad times never last but unfortunately neither do the good. Everything in life is impermanent. It ebbs and flows. Nothing stays the same forever, things change with time. I also love ‘never say never’ as life changes so do our outlooks! We should always be evolving.

Why not

Plain and simple. I adore this quote. Whenever I am in an ‘I need to toss a coin’ situation, (which really, we know the whole time which side we’d rather the coin to land on) WHY NOT always crosses my mind and that’s just it. Always reminds me of the movie Yes man. Life is all about experiences, taking risks and making spontaneous decisions. Our time here is too short.
WHY NOT

The affect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is”

Jim Carey’s graduate speech. Immmma leave this right here. Nothing has more importance than human connection and most of all kindness!

Thank you for reading! I’d love to know a quote that you live by?! Love you Dad πŸ˜‰
