Ciara Batterbee  Currently travelling 🌎

This beret has become my uniform as of late. Will I ever take it off? Who knows. Maybe once I get my roots done 🙄

Missing the sun! Not too many weeks now until winter is over and I cannot wait. Loved wearing sweaters, hats and scarves for a week but the novelty has really worn off now. Dreaming of sunny beaches and dreamy sunsets #hurryupspring #ithoughtaustraliawashot #itchyfeet


There's a time of the day when the sun is going down
That's the golden time of day
It's a time that the sun turns a gold all around
That's the golden time of day
At the end of the day when the wind is soft and warm
Don't it make the flowers sway

When the sun settles down and it takes a lovely form
That's the golden time of day

This week has been one of the more challenging ones since being away from home. Starting working again was very exciting and I’ve found a very enjoyable job but the early mornings have been tough, especially with having to move rooms in the hostel twice this week meaning 5am starts. I have also been ill with blocked sinuses, sore throat, eye infection and an incredibly achy body. I’ve had a fever too which has brought on lots of horrible dreams and a lack of sleep. Being away from home whilst unwell is horrible and it definitely made me feel a bit homesick! Backpacking is incredible and I wouldn’t swap this for experience for the world but there are times when I’ve wanted my home comforts and friends and family. I’ve spent the last couple of days resting and used the downtime to contemplate my next moves and work on a list of things I want to see and do. It got me thinking about the things I have already achieved so I wrote a list about my proudest moments to date. Coming travelling alone, going to India, visiting the Taj Mahol, living in Australia, my missionary trip to Uganda, the fundraising I have done, climbing Mount Batur and Rinjani, giving up everything to go backpacking and so many other experiences I have had on this trip. Reflecting on these achievements make the harder weeks easier 💖

After nearly 6 months of not working, these early mornings are going to take some getting used to but I'm loving working again. Especially loving working in Melbourne, I can totally see why it's the most liveable city. This next and totally unexpected and unplanned chapter is an exciting one #Melbourne #travel #newplans

Incredible sunset last night. The sky changed every minute and we were treated to the most amazing colours and the reddest clouds I've ever seen. I've been struggling with my emotions a bit recently but moments like this help me stay connected #westernaustralia


Looking over photos from #India. Already starting to feel like a lifetime ago. Amazing memories #Delhi #Rajasthan #Varanasi

Bye Bali ☀️I had such a great time here and in Lombok. Sad to be leaving but excited to be heading to Western Australia #perth

Only one thing for it this morning. #livercleansing #juice

More pictures from Mount Rinjani. Not the best photos partly due to how cloudy it was, partly because I was dying 😖
