Restaurant Review: Brooklyn Depot Kitchen and Brew – Surry Hills

When I think of Brooklyn, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Brooklyn Bridge that connects between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Without a doubt, this suspension bridge is one of my favourite spots in New York City, it can be crowded at times but the breathtaking Manhattan skyline, sunset and river views never fails to impress and there’s always something new waiting to be discovered at both ends of the bridge, and is a Mecca for foodies.

Delightful things to do in Terrigal, New South Wales!

August has always been one of our favourite months to visit Terrigal on the Central Coast of New South Wales. It’s nearing the end of the winter months and the weather is nice with lots of sunshine and cool sea breezes. At night though, the temperature drops, so a proper winter outfit is still advisable. We also find this time more relaxed and far less crowded as compared to the peak season.

Review: why Chefs Gallery has it all!

Sydney’s Chinese food scene continues to evolve with a modern spin on the old school style of cooking to a contemporary flare. These days we are tasting more varieties of artisan and creative offerings that excite our dinner plate, and leading this trend is the award winning Chefs Gallery with a repertoire of innovative dishes that produce a multi-sensory gastronomic experience. From their very successful flagship restaurant in the city, these sumptuous repasts can now be enjoyed throughout their branches around Sydney.

Discovering Blackheath, NSW

Winter time is one of the best times to visit the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. It can be freezing with crisp air and you might get lucky with an occasional snow fall which adds a dramatic winter wonder land feel. Winter time is also the Yulefest celebration or popularly known as Christmas in July, with venues serving hearty Christmas fare, carols, fire places and even the presence of Santa in some venues. We religiously make a yearly pilgrimage to Katoomba and have mulled wine or even a bottle of Champagne to celebrate Christmas in the colder season. This trip we also visited Blackheath, a town close to Katoomba.

Sunshine Coast Queensland: the perfect winter getaway!

To best appreciate the many facets of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, you’ll need a car. Depending on your arrival point, you can rent a car from Brisbane Airport or Maroochydore Airport, the gateway to the Sunshine Coast. From Brisbane it’s over an hours drive (105 km) via the M1,  a bus service also operates a shuttle transfer for those who don’t want to drive.

York, England in a day, what to see!

If you like an old world with a higgledy-piggledy atmosphere, a visit to Medieval York is must on your bucket list. Old York is a walled city in North Yorkshire England, and has produced evidence of ancient settlements as far back as 7-8000 years BC, way before the wave of invasions like that of the Romans, who named it as Eboracum in 71 AD.
