Welcome to its beautiful here: a little glimpse into my travels of the past three and half years since quitting corporate life in sydney for a life on the road. A collection of city guides, motivated and inspired by the heartwarming, the unusual, the beautiful people and places, and the delicious food I have encountered on this special journey. As you know, travel can be exhilarating and exhausting, inspiring and intimidating all at once. But with every personal connection the world gets smaller and more navigable. I am so excited to share this with you, and hope you might find even the smallest bit of inspiration to accompany you on your next adventure.

It would be lovely to hear your feedback. Feel free to email me at hello@itsbeautifulhere.com. xx gigi
