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 […]

Hawaiian Islands 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 […]

Hawaiian Island Hopping – Maui the Valley Isle

The second leg of our Hawaiian islands 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 […]

Hawaiian Islands 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 […]

Exploring Singapore for the First Time

After many years of flying through Singapore and never getting a chance to stop to explore it, we thought it was time to see what Singapore was all about. So we decided to stopover for three days on our way back from Sri Lanka. I had heard mixed reviews about Singapore from friends. Some love […]

Four days of wildlife: Escape to Kangaroo Island

For most visitors to Australia, seeing our beautiful wildlife is high on the list of things to do while they’re here. Some people think this wildlife must be everywhere (I recall one of my family members in France asking me if I had kangaroos in my Melbourne backyard). Sadly no. And chances are that if they restrict their […]

The Isle of Pines – A Little Piece of Paradise

The Isle of Pines or “Ile des Pins” is a small island situated in the Pacific Ocean. It is part of New Caledonia, a French colony. It takes around thirty minutes by plane to get there from Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia. The plane ride is quite stunning as you get to see all of the […]

A Perfect Weekend in Beautiful Sydney

After eight years, we recently made it back to Sydney for another visit. I have a soft spot for this city. It was the first city I explored in Australia. I was in my early twenties, living in London working three jobs to help me realise my dream – to travel to Australia.
