About me

Who is this Mandy person anyway?

Having grown up on the western fringe of Melbourne, Australia I have been fortunate to have the best of both worlds when it comes to city / country balance.  As long as I can remember I’ve taken every opportunity I can to explore the great outdoors – firstly as a child with my family, and then with my own family and friends as an adult.  As much as I love the bush I also enjoy the hustle and bustle of urban living and being close to the city.

A series of events over the last few years has led this hippie chick to have a “green epiphany” which has led me down the path of getting more hard core with my passion for nature, and also for the challenge of living as sustainably as we can come in a modern world.  There are a few blogs which explain this journey, as well as some about photography and some on travel & hiking.

I initially started this web site to share my interest in photography but have recently scome to the realisation that I am probably a “serial hobbyist”.  I love a new interest and/or challenge and when something grips me I’m compelled to jump in head first until I feel I’ve achieved the level of expertise I’m happy with.

I love writing and often have a LOT to say.  Stories tend to grow in my head until they can no longer fit and this blog serves as a self indulgent creative outlet to share these passions with like minded people.

I hope you enjoy….
