  • why i don’t shop when i travel Traveling heightens conflation and coincidences and special moments. This post has been edited. This is mostly how it works: new experiences, the unfamiliar, fresh eyes and movement (ie non-stagnancy) mean that we’re in the best position to notice the conflations and coincidences.

  • A mountainbiking guide to the Flinders Ranges in South Australia Have you been to the incredible Flinders Ranges in the South Australian outback yet? Not so many have. Which is madness. The place is a supreme mix of outback expansiveness mixed with stunning rock formations and surprisingly oasis-lush landscape reminiscent at times of California or Greece…all within a few hours drive of Adelaide. Well four-to-five, more
  • A hiking guide to Mammoth Lakes, Sierra Nevada The Sierra Nevada is a mountainous region on the eastern side of Yosemite in California and about 5 hours drive from Los Angeles.
