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.

I pre-booked online my day tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau and The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine on Viator before arriving in Poland. It cost AUD $121.11 and that included lunch, hotel pick up and drop off.

Vehicle was a Mercedes Benz mini bus, comfortable with a total of 8 passengers including myself.

Krakow, Poland a great value destination

I took an early Ryanair flight at 06:35 from Brussels-Charleroi Airport and landed in Kraków John Paul II International Airport around 08:30 a less than two hour flight. Charleroi airport is small, nothing much to do for an early departure except clear security checks and wait for the boarding announcement. Plane departed on time and cruised into the sunrise over Central Europe. Views as the plane approached Krakow were an endless spread of colourful fields. I felt the morning sun slightly slanting on my window seat, it looks like a glorious day ahead!
