Thanks to Jetstar Australia for featuring a lengthy photo essay and interview on my Vietnamese adventure times in their most recent July issue. It was great reflecting on the special time spent there with my family in 2016 and a reminder that as a photographer it is always worth getting up before the sun rises to capture the golden moments :-)

These images first appeared on my travel blog - Lifestyle Traveller - that I keep with my husband, Peter Barrett.

A few months ago, my lifestyle travel writer partner-in-crime and I spent some lovely time in beautiful Mount Macedon, just 50 minutes’ drive west of Melbourne. The story was published in RACV’s RoyalAuto’s May issue.
It is hard to believe that this spectacular beauty is accessible in under one hour from my inner-city Melbourne home. Worth remembering on days when I am feeling overwhelmed by the rat race!
