Travel through the Eyes of Art

Photo of the Month: Time

I came across this clock on a daytrip to Laura, a small town in regional South Australia. Although  I am not a regular church-goer, I still believe there is a higher being to watch and guide us through life. In what form that higher being takes will be different for everyone. Continue reading

Don’t have a pet of your own? Maybe your living arrangements don’t allow for pets.  Step into the Cat Cafe in Melbourne and meet your new four-legged furry feline companion. Sit back and relax with a cup of coffee (or tea) while you enjoy the company of a furry friend. Continue reading

Photo of the Month: Camel Train

Camels are an intriguing animal and  not temperamental as I discovered during my camel ride at Uluru last year. They are actually gentle and friendly. My camel, name Wally, was a great example of a placid camel.  He was happy to follow along on our mini sunset camel train. Continue reading

The Right Time to Travel

Is there a right time for you to travel somewhere?  Just because all your friends and colleagues have visited the top holiday destinations, does it mean you have to as well?
