• Our favourite fish and chips shops in Sydney

    HAPPY DAYS! With the clock already sprung forward for the Daylight Savings Time and some easing of Covid-19 restrictions, the start of the fun time under the sun has officially begun. The great outdoors plays a big part in the Australian way life. During the long warmer months, we tend to indulge in a lot of outdoorsy activities like cycling in the park, getting out on the water, the beach, bush walking, camping, an evening under the stars cinemas and of course, the quintessential true blue barbie!

  • Majestic Monaco

    During our visit to Nice, we took a day trip to Monaco by train. Journey time is around 30 minutes, terminates at Monaco-Monte Carlo. Monaco is the second-smallest country in Europe roughly the same size as New York’s Central Park. Divided into four neighbourhoods: Monaco-Ville (the old city), La Condamine (along the port), Monte-Carlo (tourist area) and Fontvieille, (a reclaimed area from the sea).

  • THE FAB Four! – Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa and Berry. A DAY AWAY OR A WEEKEND STAY

    Continuing on from our previous post Thrilling Wollongong, we continued our Southern getaway visiting the coastal towns of Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa and the lovely village of Berry, all part of the Shoalhaven region of the New South Wales South Coast. Navigating around these picturesque towns is easy by car and all can be visited in one day. But really to appreciate them, we highly recommend an overnight stay. Accommodation in the Fab Four is plentiful from high end boutique hotels to motels, caravan parks, farm-stays and Airbnb. Every town has plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, public parks, amenities and parking so the only decision is where to stay.

  • Bonjour, Nice

    Our first impression of Gare de Nice Ville was blissfully calmer compared to Marseille St Charles as we stepped outside. It’s a smaller station with less chaos except for our fellow arriving and departing passengers. Outside you’ll find plenty of shops and transport options to take you to your hotel or final destination.

  • Marseille to Nice by train

    Train travel is a good option to venture out and around Côte d’Azur – the French Riviera. Sit back and enjoy the views, just let the train take you to your destination. Nothing to worry about with the daunting traffic and possible language barrier if you don’t speak French.

  • The AWE-INSPIRING “Wieliczka” Salt Mine in Poland

    Wieliczka Salt Mine was the second part of the tour. We left the Birkenau Memorial ground at 1-pm, taking around 1 hour and 30 minutes to arrive, thanks to a smooth traffic flow along the motorway. The journey time allows for a resting of the feet, it also gives you time to reflect after the emotional tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

AIRLINE/CRUISE REVIEWS

Sampler cruises, a fun weekend gateway

We have sailed with Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas a number of years ago for a 7 day cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong visiting Vietnam (Nah Trang) and Thailand (Pattaya and Chabang) and we loved it. As first time cruisers our expectations were all met hands down! We were impressed with our room and service, dining, entertainment and activities and shows onboard, never a dull moment.
