Hello, mates! (…just a little something I picked up in Australia… 😉 ). This is probably my favorite travel diary to date because OMG Australia was jaw-drop stunning. I’d seen the Pinterest photos and heard the rave reviews from my traveling friends (…flight attendants seem to know best!) and they were 110% correct. Australia is heaven on earth. Kind (and happy!) people, unworldly beaches, the cutest summer clothing and fabulous metropolitan cities throughout. We visited Melbourne for the first three days of our trip, then finished out with a full week in Sydney. My best friend Elissa is a flight attendant for Delta, so we grabbed our other galpal Valerie (also a flight attendant) and decided to trek across the world for 10 days in paradise. Though the 15 hour plane ride is brutal (sharing my tips for this lengthy flight further into this post), as soon as we stepped our feet into the Sydney sand, it was all worth it.

Curry Cauliflower Soup

Austin weather has been all over the place lately. A few days ago I was walking to work, and it was lovely on the way in. I was wearing a light jacket and felt great as I crossed the pedestrian bridge over Lady Bird Lake, listening to my current favorite podcast My Favorite Murder (any other murderinos out there?). Cut to 5pm and I was FREEZING as I walked home. I may need to take Olivia’s advice and work on my layering skills…

Needless to say, cold weather always leaves me craving soup. The beauty of this Curry Cauliflower Soup is that you probably already have most of the ingredients on hand. I almost always pick up cauliflower at the store because I love the nutty taste that comes out when you roast it. Pair that with the zip of curry and turmeric, and you’ve got a really delicious, warming soup. Enjoy!
