Something about travelling allows us time and space to reconnect to ourselves. The part of ourselves which gets bogged down with work, stress, chores and routine finally has a chance to emerge, wide eyed and ready for adventure.
 
This is the first of my series of Top Travelling Tips where I will share with you some of the most beautiful places I’ve visited around the world, as well as other handy hints about travelling to each particular region featured.  Today I’ll be sharing my experience in the city of Marrakech in Morroco, Africa.

I’m finally back after my massive adventure away.  Exploring parts of Europe and the UK (and even the very tip of Africa for a few days) was exhilarating, exhausting, inspiring and always interesting.  I’ll be sure to write about some of my top travel experiences over the coming weeks and include some pics too.  But today I wanted to share an experience I had last week on my return.

A Hippy in the City - living on a budget in Sydney

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Written by Alison Gallagher

Sydney is one of the most expensive cities in the world.  Rent and property prices are sky high, and eating out in the inner city suburbs can cost a bomb.  But it is also a beautiful and culture rich city brimming with exciting and inspiring destinations.  Our resident 'hippy in the city' author Rita Balshaw shares some of her top tips to getting by in an expensive town such as Sydney.  

Sydney: Stunning city but not a cheap place to live....unless you're a 'hippy' 

Alison:

Rita, living in Sydney isn’t cheap,  it’s been listed as one of the most expensive cites in the world to live, so when the dollar count is down, how does a ‘hippy in the city’get by? 

Rita:

There are a few cardinal necessities on my living checklist when I reside in an area. I like a place where people are liberal, friendly, and social with access to lots of nature. I found share houses in the eastern suburbs are not too pricey especially if you house hunt in the Winter months  and are willing to sacrifice a few mod cons  - as many of the apartments are 'older' (with much character). Sussing out websites like Gum tree and Flatmates.com are worth a look to find rooms which suit your budget.
