"If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people" —Virginia Woolf
Hello, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Tessa, and I write + take photos here on Bramble & Thorn. I live and work in Melbourne, Australia, but home for me is a little coastal town at the bottom of Australia called Port Fairy.
By day, I work in marketing and publicity for one of Australia's largest film distribution companies, spending my time talking film and watching numerous documentaries and foreign language films. Tough, eh? When I'm not at work, I'm working on Bramble & Thorn. Since August 2014 I've been working on this little blog as a way to carve out a space for myself online.
Bramble & Thorn is primarily a travel blog, with lifestyle elements scattered throughout. If I'm not posting about my travels abroad, I'm talking about discoveries in Melbourne (and Australia in general). From time to time I also like to write about the books, music and film that I love.
I believe in: reading before turning out my light each night, picking up cakes on the way home from work, walking aimlessly through a forest, a good gin cocktail, and trying new things.
I'm so thankful for wonderful readers and friends I've made through this space. Blogging is perhaps my favourite medium to express myself and it's so lovely to receive such kind and thoughtful comments here. Thanks for stopping by!
