If you have been on this site recently, you may have noticed that the shop page has been unavailable for a little while. Well, just like most of you, my life has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. However, I am very thankful that my health and the health of my loved ones have not been affected. I also have managed to keep my day job, for now anyway, so I am one of the lucky ones, I know it may not have been the case for you, so I would like to acknowledge any suffering that this crisis may have caused to you. I am also thankful to live in a country that has an excellent health system as it is not the case in other countries. And of course, thank you to all the dedicated health professionals and support staff that are so essentials.
This post is a bit more personal, but I thought I would share with you what has been happening in the last few months. I started with this business idea a long time ago but did not have the time, money to do much with it. Very, very slowly it evolved from a blog to a shop last November (2019). I did not have much time to dedicate to it as I was working full time and needed to educate myself about business (that is still ongoing). Nevertheless, I was very proud of my achievements. But then, all that came to an abrupt end in March. Like most Australians, I went into lockdown. Unfortunately, that meant that I was away from my shop items in order to be close to my loved ones. I was working from home with my day job and wondering if this was ever going to end. Well, it still has not ended but I would say that things are on the up-trend. Queensland has re-opened its borders and interstate visitors are slowly coming back. Albeit, some delays for Victoria. So, great to see that despite everything, Australians have not lost their taste for travel. International travel is off the table for now but with such a blessed country, there is so much to see!
I also sincerely hope that one of the things that will change is that we will travel more sustainably and ethically. Because our health is intrinsically related to the health of the planet we inhabit, it would be a natural progression. If you are ready to make a bit of a difference, I invite you to come and visit our website, we have some great blog articles to help you make better choices and contribute to our collective wellbeing. Shortly, there will be some more information about how to travel more sustainably in North Queensland. So stay tuned for more info on this.
But today, I really wanted to tell you that I am really excited about announcing that I will be re-opening the ‘’shop’’ section of the website on the 1st of August 2020. You will find there, eco-friendly fashion and travel essentials. Helping the planet by packing eco-friendly has never been more fun! Have a browse here….. and thanks for your patience during these unprecedented times! See you soon and until next time, travel safely and sustainably!
