TTBT… Travel Throw Back Thursday…


In all my time on social network I have never done a #tbt … I know, madness. So I thought a PaperPlane Tale would be a perfect way to celebrate my first Throwback! Wouldn’t you agree?

I can hardly believe that it has been nearly 4 years since I set off on my first major expedition. And my first ever flight! … Naturally i’ve been hooked ever since. Continue reading


Things Are Beginning To Get Real…



Things are beginning to get real.

I applied for a working holiday visa to Australia at approximately 8pm on Saturday night prepared for my two months of waiting to hear anything about it. Sunday morning around 10am I received an email confirming that it had been accepted! On a Sunday? Less than 24 hours later?! I think i re-read the email about a hundred times in disbelief!

By Sunday evening, after much deliberation and price checking, one frozen computer, two timing outs and one frustrated dad, my flight to Australia was BOOKED!!

Things are really beginning to get real.

So my trip begins on the 28th July 2015. From London Heathrow, with Singapore Airlines. This will be my first flight on my own and it is going to be a long one… With an incredible fifteen hour wait in Singapore! (Yes you did just read that correctly!)

However I have discovered that the airport provides free tours of Singapore for any waits over five hours so I am planning to take full advantage of this and any other goodies that are offered to me. … a free flight upgrade would naturally be welcomed on either flights!

Now I can really start planning my adventure!! Any recommendations?
