Winterfest at Port Adelaide: A Wonderland of Frosty Joy

Winterfest at Port Adelaide: A Wonderland of Frosty Joy

Bonjour à tous!

Picture a bustling winter market set at an old flour mill adorned with beautiful Christmas decorations and pine trees. A crisp winter breeze cuts through the air, but a warm wood fire smell permeates your surroundings as you make your way in. To me, it smells of Europe – and it looks like it, too. Bare trees and fairy lights decorate the top of my vision and warm foods are offered at stalls lined up in a row.

This is the Winterfest at Port Adelaide – a wonderland for people of all ages and many things to see and do. When I think about our lovely little city of Adelaide, I feel proud that in the past few years we have managed to put on such fantastic events for the people to enjoy. It is honestly so much fun and I am really thankful to the creators and everyone involved in the Winterfest for putting on this amazing experience for our city! (more…)

June Favourites, Cultivating Happiness + Future Plans

Bonjour à tous!

So this month has been kinda hectic for me, I’ve got to admit. I have had a few difficult things happen which I won’t really go into on here; yet somehow I have managed to find things to enjoy throughout the month as well. I’ve really tried to focus on having happy moments even in quite devastating times, and I think this is a really important thing to learn how to do in order to keep living your life.

I have also had the exam period at Uni recently, and I have had a major assignment due for Linguistics. Great news on that though – I got quite a high grade for that paper, so here I am another step closer to becoming a linguist! You know when you do well at it and you love it, it is definitely a path for you. So, without further adieu, here is a list of my favourites for this month, as well as some fun future plans: (more…)
