Your First Trip to Tokyo: 16 Awesome Things to Do

For many years Japan was high on our travel bucket list. The beautiful temples and blooming Japanese gardens in travel magazines made me want to go and explore it. So after a lot of research, we finally booked to visit Japan during the famous Sakura season, better known as “cherry blossom”. This was our first visit, so […]

A Day of Hiking at Cradle Mountain

Cradle Mountain is situated in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in the North West of Tasmania, the most southern state of Australia. It is a pleasant two and a half hours drive from Launceston and is the most visited national park in Tasmania. It is also one of the prettiest national parks in […]

Must Do in Kauai: Doors Off Helicopter Ride

One of the most popular things to do in Hawaii is to take a helicopter ride. We had both been in a helicopter before but since we would have our wedding anniversary on Kauai, we decided to splurge on another ride. Because most of Kauai’s north side is unaccessible by car, a helicopter ride is […]

Catching the Sunrise in Haleakala

Another amazing thing to do in Maui is to watch the sun rise above the clouds, ten thousand feet above sea level at the summit of Haleakala. I wasn’t sure about this one at first. Firstly it meant getting up super early (which never appeals to me) and secondly I hate the cold! We had […]

Driving the Scenic Road to Hana

On our trip to Maui, we drove along the famous and scenic Road to Hana. The Road to Hana is one of the most breathtaking drives in America and is the number one attraction on Maui. There are two ways to tackle the Road to Hana. You can hire a car and drive it yourself, or you can […]

Hawaii Island Hopping – Kauai the Garden Isle

After our amazing six days in Maui, it was time to head to our final island, Kauai. I read that Kauai was even more beautiful than Maui (if that’s even possible) and a lot less touristy. We both were really sad to leave Maui after the awesome time we had there. How could Kauai possibly top that I […]

Hawaii Island Hopping – Maui the Valley Isle

The second leg of our Hawaii island hopping adventure was a visit to Maui. Over the years we had heard a lot about Maui. It’s certainly a popular destination; especially with honeymooners. Reading up about Maui really started to change my opinion of Hawaii. It did look pretty amazing! The thing about Maui is that there is so much to do on the […]

Hawaii Island Hopping – Touchdown in Oahu

For many years we’ve considered going to Hawaii; but our images of Waikiki with buildings over-shadowing the beach, hordes of tourists, chains of shops and restaurants turned us off going. We love beach holidays but we love quiet ones. Staying in cabanas or bungalows rather than one of a thousand condos. Then after some more research […]

A Day Trip to Moreton Island

I visit the Gold Coast regularly as my friend lives there. On my last visit, we both decided to visit Moreton Island as neither of us had been there before. We booked an organised day trip with the Scenic Day Tour Group. Moreton Island is about sixty kilometres north-east of Brisbane. It is a popular day […]

Lord Howe Island, Australia’s Best Kept Secret

Lord Howe Island is a UNESCO World Heritage listed island about 600 kilometres North East of Sydney. Unlike the popular islands of the Whitsundays, Lord Howe Island is not very well known to the rest of the world. Some Australians have never even heard of it. Lord Howe island is always a quiet haven. Only […]
