The SpaceI have a 2 bedroom travellers apartment - a little bit rustic and filled with finds that I've collected from around the world on my travels! It's in the well regarded suburb of Clayfield which is very safe, quiet and easy to get around.

I also tend to keep myself quite busy outside of work too! I've just started a psychology degree so will be studying lots, and you may find me looking a little bit stressed, lost and panicked as I find my feet with this!!!
When I'm not working or studying, I'm generally out undertaking one of my various interests which include yoga, salsa, hiking, mountain bike riding, motorbike riding and of course socialising with friends!
During the working week I rise early and leave the house by 6am, and then head to bed 8.30pm ish (shoo me in there if I'm not!!!). I'm also out most of the weekend - that is unless I've collapsed from exhaustion from doing the above!
When I am there I tend to keep to myself, but happy to help out where I can with tips on things to do, places to go to help you make the most of your visit here! The NeighborhoodSHOPPING:
