the_storyteller { D e s i g n } • I hope you don't mind me sharing a few more shots of my trip to #Canberra this weekend. I feel like I need to share this spectacular piece of futuristic art that actually won @hotel_hotel the world's best design award last November. .

Designed by @March_Studio and using over 5,000 piece of timber, concrete beams and steel panelling, it resulted in a bright and mesmerising entrance, just in line with the outstanding beauty & details of the hotel. .

I'm editing the other pictures this week, look out for a blog post soon! .

the_storyteller {F o o d & F r i e n d s } • What would you say if you got the chance to attend a gorgeous luncheon set in a stunning venue in the middle of the countryside in #Canberra with a bunch of talented and inspiring women? Well, I call it a blast! Thanks to my beloved friend @lovewalkeatsee, whom I finally got to see again after a year, yesterday I spent a splendid afternoon celebrating food, regional products, old and new friendship for her #passionforprovenance event. Thank you, my lovely! See you very soon! .

This was the delicious Hawkesbury River Duck Breast with sweet potato galette, fennel, Pialligo stone fruit and mustard. Yummy! Can you believe that Matt Breis, the head chef of @pod_food is only 25 years old?! I wonder what he's got up his sleeves for the next decade! .

the_storyteller { H a p p y Me } • My stay at @hotel_hotel is going extremely well as you probably noticed on my #Snapchat yesterday . The apartments are beautifully designed and filled with gorgeous art, carefully-researched furniture and interesting books. Basically, my kinda place.. They don't know it yet, but I've moved in. .

the_storyteller {C a n b e r r a } Whoever told me there is nothing to see here was lying. The purpose-built, geometrically planned capital of #Australia is a little gem and a must-see. It makes the perfect destination for a road trip, especially when you are on a express #MurraysCoaches from Sydney: Amazing ride and hilarious driver! .

the_storyteller { R o a d & S u r f} • Right, I just bought a surfboard, a wetsuit (as you saw on my #Snapchat} and now I just need a #VWvan like this one to hit the road. Let's go on adventure! 🏽.
Thanks to all of you who joined our first book club today/last night (depending on your time zone), you can still leave your thoughts on my book review (up on my blog). .

the_storyteller {We need to talk about Y O U } • So, I was sitting on a bus yesterday and I noticed that a guy in front of me was on Instagram. While I was reading my book, he kept scrolling his feed at an impressive speed without ever stopping to like or commenting: not a double tap, no hearts whatever, no words to anyone. No comments or interaction. Now, here is my question(s):. .

What's the point of checking other people's work/photo without letting them know you've seen their work by liking them or leaving a comment?. .

Do you do the same and do you just use Instagram as a "television channel" where you are having a quick look around without really engaging with anyone? .

What's your usual use of IG? Do you selectively give your likes or do you quickly like everyone's picture? Or worse you never give likes? 🤔 Instagram is obviously pushing for certain profiles and styles with the new Explore algorithm and it's such a shame it's moving more and more towards Facebook's direction of pre-selecting content for its users, so I'm curious to see what else is going to happen if this is the actual average use .
At least now I know what my other 78.6k followers normally do. End of the rant! 🤘🏽 .

Have a fantastic day, it's time to pack for a new adventure today! Check my snapchat [sab_storyteller] and Facebook []. .

  •   the_storyteller @kmors99 I've sent you a DM with the comment I wrote in reply to yours. It wouldn't go through (I think it was too long) and I don't have time to write it again.. 1w
  •   the_storyteller @juliabarnickle I saw your pictures from Venice!! Beautiful! 1w
  •   the_storyteller @thereshegoesagn I think you really got a point there.. Most users use it exactly as television where they can just have a look for 10-15 minutes on their bus commute to work. Nothing wrong with that, but as I know the amount of work I put into it, I could never treat the same way.. That's also why I would like Instagram to put a fee on the app so that there would be a better use among the people really interested in photography and leave the others out.. But now it's too late for that and we need to take what we've got! Have a great day! Xx 1w
  •   meredithsherlock I have definitely noticed this, too! So many people scroll through aimlessly without taking in the beautiful work and captions people create and construct. It's so disappointing. Glad to know that some read them, though! ️ 1w
  •   juliabarnickle Thank you! 1w
  •   isabella_and_george IG is nourishment for my eyes, I take time out of my day and consciously engage with the images in my feed. I like to afford people that moment in time to look at, and read, what they have posted and engage with likes and comments when things really resonate with me. 6d

Do you know I have another account all about coffee and cafes? Do you know you could become an editor too? Yeah! If you are a coffee-addict, can take good pictures, write well and have a natural talent to scout cute, independent coffee-shops in your neighbourhood or while travelling, please drop me an email with a presentation of yourself and a @cafesaroundtheworld style review of your fav coffee-shop. .

I'm truly amazed by your trust and loving my work so much. I'm truly flattered and grateful. 🏽

Option A: stay put in Sydney for another month to work on projects and nurture my new business and network and then go to Japan in March,
Option B: jump on a 3-months road trip with a half-stranger on Feb.3rd and take what comes along,

Option C: enjoy summer and Sydney until end of Feb and then start my Australian adventure. .

Oh well, I love having the options...I'm just crap at picking one! Suggestions? Write down your favourite (A-B-C) or feel free to suggest other options too! .

This is one of the very few decent shots I managed to get on my flight with @heliexperiences on my birthday. I was sitting on the left hand side backseat and I have to say that for a good three quarters of the flight (20 minutes total) I saw: nothing! Just the Ocean! I was not happy at all and I told the guys the journey was not worth the money, but I never heard back from them!! 🏽 Go to the other heli providers in Sydney guys, don't go to @heliexperiences 🏽. .

Having worked for the company with THE best customer service in the world, I know I have the right to say out loud when things go terribly wrong. You should all do the same. Social media have an incredible power nowadays: make your voice is heard. Get things straight. Get things right. 🏽 .

the_storyteller I n s p i r e d • "If everything you did everyday was being written in a book, from your actions, your friends, your daily work, your free time, your conversations and so on was, being written, and across the planet a person was reading each page moment by moment to a group of individuals, what do you think they would hear, what do you think they would think of you, what do you think they'd say you stand for and believe? Today I hope you're standing, living, and breathing for something great, today I wish you confidence, peace, laughter, and love for the way we live our day is the way we live our life • Live with intention.

I haven't done a #followfriday for ages, but as I went through the people I follow (and unfollowed some...ooops, sorry! only inspirational & positive stuff allowed in my feed!), I re-visited some of my favourites profiles and I came up with the idea of sharing a few of of these people with you. Some of them are simply amazing, creative photographers, others, like me, are trying to have a remarkable life, they are trying to make the world a better place or simply have amazing stories to tell. Their words and pictures represents my daily dose of energy, love and passion. I couldn't start my series with anybody else but this dude who's a hero for many kids and one of the most amazing souls of Instagram. .
