    My artistic side

    My Quarantine Routine

    This is a very difficult time for everyone around the world. It’s so sad to watch what’s happening with all the people affected by the Covid-19. There is a lot of negativity out there and it’s being hard to live in these conditions of quarantine right now. But also, there are opportunities during this situation and I believe we need to keep going, staying positive and following the guides as well as the recommendations of World Health Organization – WHO and the government (health.gov.au) – Australia in my case.

    The Cove Jervis Bay Review

    The Cove is a charming acommodation located in Jervis Bay, New South Wales, but it’s also a hidden gem in the area, after a 13 kilometre drive through the rainforests of Booderee National Park. It was my second time in Jervis Bay and in my opinion it’s one of the best beaches in New South Wales. The water is crystal clear and the sand is white as its known as the whitest in the world according to Guiness Book. But The Cove is completely out of the busy area. It’s located in a seclude place and you can have this entire paradise only for you. That’s what happened to us, we…
