Mathematics tour – Optus stadium Perth

What was the last live performance you saw?

Ed Sheeran…… Loved it!!

I also saw him in 2018 for the Divide tour. I thought he was great then, but this was better. Ed has matured, refined his trade, relaxed and grown into an all around talent…… as well as just a nice, humble guy.

It felt like a journey. Can’t wait for the next instalment.



Do you have a quote you live your life by or think of often?

‘You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.’ by Zig Ziglar

Whenever I ponder if I am good enough to do something, I think of this quote. It was stuck on the wall in the early days of my husband and my business.

We took a leap. It was huge, it was scary and it was hard but the outcome was definitely ‘great’.


Spanish Stranger

Describe a random encounter with a stranger that stuck out positively to you.

Late 2021 I saw an advertisement on Facebook for a Spanish girl looking for somewhere to live. Until this point we hadn’t really thought of renting our granny flat. However, when I read the ad, I was immediately drawn to her. I sent her a message and we welcomed this Spanish stranger into our home for coffee.

Although this may not be considered a random encounter (we didn’t bump into her in the street after all), the way in which we made the decision to host her was fairly random. We put our trust in her ability to describe herself in three sentences and we decided spur of the moment to open our home.

As it turns out, she went on to live in our flat for four exciting months. We loved her smile, her chats, her stories and her food. We met visitors from all around the world, rekindled our sense of adventure and were made to feel young again. She made us realise there are many different ways to travel.

She was the catalyst and inspiration behind these blogs;


Birth of Travel Bee

Describe a decision you made in the past that helped you learn or grow.

At the age of 23, I packed my bags and headed to the UK on a working holiday. I had a few contacts, but essentially I was alone. I was young, I was naive, I was scared but I was also brave and I had a job (always helpful)!

My decision opened my eyes to the world of travel. I grew professionally, I grew as a person and I met many characters from all walks to life. Without this time, I would not be the person I am today, nor would I be married!

I often wonder how I had the courage. The older I grow, the less risk I am inclined to take! Is that normal?
