Travel

If you think of healthy food New York probably doesn't immediately come to mind. But there are some little pots of gold if you know where to look. If you read my post about my recent trip to Los Angeles, you’ll know that my travel buddy Kylie and I decided to squeeze in a quick trip to the East coast...
Lilian Dikmans, The Sebel Noosa
If you've lived in Melbourne, you will know that there are times when you just need to escape somewhere warmer. Like Noosa. I should say consistently warmer, as we do get warm days in Melbourne but it's always a gamble whether it will last. Last week, I returned to Melbourne after a blissful few days up in Noosa with my...
Lilian Dikmans, Healthy food Los Angeles
There is healthy food everywhere in Los Angeles if you know where to look. America tends to be known for its greasy burgers and junk food served in monstrous portions. However, Los Angeles is a melting pot of health conscious people so the food has followed suit. Previously, I wrote about my experience training boxing in LA earlier this year....
Lilian Dikmans, boxing Los Angeles
LA boxing training experience As the popularity of boxing is growing amongst the general public, boxing gyms are becoming ubiquitous. They are popping up on every corner here in Australia and the same thing is happening in the United States. When I was over in Los Angeles earlier this year, I wanted to keep up my training. Although it was hard...
Tribute Hotel Perth
Tribe Hotel Perth really is built for the modern traveller. I stayed at Tribe Hotel Perth when I was in Western Australia a couple of weeks back. With a fair bit of work to do while I was there, Tribe made the whole experience an absolute breeze. Walking into the building, the first thing you notice is the cosy yet cool...
Rob Powdrill, Lilian Dikmans Muay Thai training in Perth
Three days in Western Australia have been full of Muay Thai action. The State of WA is known as one of the two best Muay Thai territories in Australia. While Melbourne has been known as the kickboxing centre of the country, WA and Queensland produce the largest number of Australia’s representatives of the Art of Eight Limbs. Staying at Tribe Hotel...
Lilian Dikmans, Notel airstream Melbourne
How often can you say that you spent the night in an airstream caravan perched on the rooftop of a Melbourne city car park? Notel, which is 'Not-A-Hotel', really is a different experience. As a family owned and run business, Notel owner James created the concept because he was sick of the standard hotel drill of lobbies and check-in counters. Notel...
Lilian Dikmans yoga Satellite Island jetty
I had never heard of Satellite Island a few weeks ago. Probably because it's an isolated, private island located off the coast of Bruny Island, which is off the coast of mainland Tasmania. So it's an island off an island off an island. When I found out that I was going to be doing an outdoorsy photoshoot there with...
Trip to Ballarat
Have you been to Ballarat? I think my last trip there was in primary school on a visit to Sovereign Hill to dress up in 1850s attire and pretend to be an early settler during the Victorian gold rush. Great times (I love playing dress-ups). A couple of weeks ago, I returned to Ballarat (in a different capacity) for a weekend...
