5 Things to do in Tasmania

5 Things to do in Tasmania

Tasmania tends to be overlooked when people consider travelling to Australia, but it is one of my favourite places in the world and I’ve been to over 20 countries! The atmosphere is so relaxed and calm, the temperature is always lovely and fresh and I always enjoy every moment when I’m there. Here are my top 5  things to do in Tasmania next time you head south to explore in Australia.  Newdegate Cave, at Hastings Cave Reserve Head 40m underground into the 9-celsius degree cave on the South East side of the island. This is the largest dolomite cave open

Tripping to Wine Town // Photo Diary

Tripping to Wine Town // Photo Diary

If you follow us over at Brisbane Threads, you may have seen my post last year on the Hunter Valley trip. There were so many things I loved about the Hunter Valley… but would I go there again on a budget? No. It’s definitely somewhere to head when you have some mulah up your sleeve. When you’re there, you want to indulge in the slightly pricey restaurants and stock up on some delish wine and cheese to take home. This post is just a simple photo diary with some of the highlights but if you’re inspired – head on over

Day trip // France // Saint Valery Sur Somme

Day trip // France // Saint Valery Sur Somme

Easter weekend was coming up and we didn’t want to let it go by without doing something fabulous. Prices are high over this weekend in Europe though so we needed to keep things fairly low-key and keep it brief. After some research we found a P&O ferry doing a deal for a carload of people from Dover to Calais in France for $24 return with SIX BOTTLES OF WINE FOR FREE. YEP. What was the wine like? It was like drinking wee but still! Cooking wine – hurrah! So off to France before the sun was up, we were. It

UK Road Trip // Kent // Dover & Folkstone

UK Road Trip // Kent // Dover & Folkstone

If you read my last post, you’ll know that I recently did a road trip from Surrey, through Kent. Today we go over the second part of our journey, so come along. Dover is famous for its white cliffs and its castle – which is the largest in England. We actually didn’t properly do the castle this time as I’m told you need to leave the better part of a full day to properly see everything and learn the full history. So we trekked along the stunning white cliffs and looked out to France. It was at Dover that my

UK Road Trips // Kent // Tunbridge Wells & Canterbury

UK Road Trips // Kent // Tunbridge Wells & Canterbury

This week I did a bit of exploring around Kent in the UK. It was our first UK road trip and one to remember. Our base was a little outside of a small town called Sandwich. A sweeter town you never did see. It was the perfect place to base ourselves as there is so many small towns every which way from Sandwich to explore. As we journeyed in from Surrey our first stop was Royal Tunbridge Wells. The royal well is actually pretty disappointing so probably not much worth a look but the rest of the town is certainly
