ProBlogger Event - The Blog Rescuer


Although This Australian Life blog has been pretty much dead for over a year now (last post is from April 2014!), I still decided to go to this blog event that I always wanted to.

So glad I did! Just came back to Sydney from a beautiful weekend on the Gold Coast feeling very inspired after 3 days full of learning and fun.

So here I’m gonna tell you how my experience was on my very first Problogger event. What a way to revive the blog, hey!

15 Amazing Australian Time-Lapse Videos

I love time-lapse videos. I think it's a great (beautiful and fast) way to get to know a place through a video. There are many on the web showing nice landscapes around the world. And even from outer space.

This Australian Life is celebrating its 200th post and I thought it would be a good idea to put together some of the best time-lapse videos showing places in Australia to mark this milestone.

The 2014 Carnival in Brazil has just finished. Once more, Rio de Janeiro brought magic into one of the most famous events in the world. And this year, Australia had a contribution to the party.

Memories from Soundwaves (videos)


Soundwave is an annual rock n' roll festival that originated in Perth in 2004 as part of a multi-sport competition called Gravity Games.

It was only in 2007 that the Soundwave began traveling to the other Australian capitals, including Sydney. And, apart from this first one in 2007, I can proudly say that I've never missed a single Sydney edition of the Soundwave.

The Rocks Aroma Festival



I went to The Rocks Aroma Festival for the first time last year. And it was soooo good!

Even though it's called the "biggest coffee festival in the Southern Hemisphere", it's not only about coffee. It's also about foreign food, rare spices, chocolates and sweets in general.

Masterchef Pop-Up Restaurant



If you (like me) are a fan of Masterchef and its mouth watering food prepared by the contestants, judges and guests, you now have the chance to leave the screen behind and get to not only see but also smell and (important!) TASTE those delicious dishes.

The Entertainment Book

What could be better than a reliable book full of recommendations to some of the best restaurants in Australia? A book full of discounts for those great Australian restaurants.

In Sydney we can taste flavors from all around the world. But the good exquisite cuisine can be quite expensive. Also, how can we be sure that a certain restaurant is good if we do not know anyone that has eaten there?
