8 Spots of Serenity on the East Coast of Australia
Well hello – it’s nice to e-meet you all & such a pleasure to be here as a new TTH contributor.
I’m Mollie and if you read my introduction here on TTH you’ll already know that I am a keen wanderer in search of life in it’s purest moments.
Over Christmas I backpacked around Australia and whilst I loved immersing myself in the Aussie nightlife, beach parties and surf hangouts, some of my favourite memories are the ones where the world just stood still for just a minute or two. Or my mind did at least.
Travelling allows me to reflect on my life and the journey I am on and I think finding these moments of stillness help me to stay focused and calm.
