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

Coffee and Cats in Melbourne

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

Perhaps one of the most famous places for watching the sunset in Bal, but Tanah Lot holds a deeper meaning to the Balinese. It plays an important role in Balinese spiritual and mythical life. Continue reading

Wild Irish Beauty

There is nothing more powerful than standing at the top of a cliff with the wild sea below you.  The rugged coastline stretches before you to reveal the wild Cliffs of Moher on the Irish coast. The cold, brisk winds whips around you but it is hardly noticeable as the sound of waves crashing onto the rocks below captivates your attention. Continue reading

Where to Find the Best Calamari in Hobart?

Seafood has always been my favourite dish for as long as I can remember.  For those that know me know that I will always go for the calamari dish if it is on the menu.  So on my trip to Hobart on the Australia Day weekend it was no surprise that I would search the city for the best seafood dish in the city. Continue reading

Harbourside in Hobart

Hobart is the harbour city of Tasmania that sits on the estuary of the Derwent River and the finish line for the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.  Flanked against the mountainside backdrop of Mount Wellington, at 1270 metres, Hobart is a city of colourful history and culture.  The harbour district starts at fashionable Salamanca Place where you will find the arts district, pubs, cafes, sandstone warehouses and of course the popular Salamanca Market every Saturday.

Movie Inspired Travel

Ideas can come from anywhere even the movies.  We see a city highlighted in one of our favourite movies and feel it drawing us to explore more.  This is one method I use when choosing my next destination. Movies I feel are inspirational or I can connect with the characters’ thoughts and ambitions. Continue reading

The Audrey Hepburn Tour of Rome

Many movies have been inspired and filmed in Rome including one of my favourites – Roman Holiday.  When I was in Rome this past August, I made a point to visit a few locations used in the movie.  Although it was not my first visit to Rome, it felt like it.  I experienced this ancient city again from a different perspective – without a tour group and stopped off longer at these unique places.  While I don’t recommend walking the streets at night after a couple of sleeping pills like Audrey Hepburn did in the movie, the city is worth a look day and night. Continue reading

Lord Byron Country

It is easy to see why the beautiful Cinque Terre coast has inspired many books, poems and films.  Rocky coastline.  Colourful villages perched on the side of hills. Friendly people.  It is truly an artists paradise. Lord Byron and Shelley Keats were two of the famous writers who found inspiration there. Continue reading
