Things to do and see in Kurnell NSW, Australia

Want a great spot to enjoy a walk, swim, picnic and even a cuppa with views that’s not too far from Sydney? Then make a trip out to idyllic Kurnell, a suburb located in the Southern part of Sydney, less than an hours drive from the City. Driving is the best way to get there although it can be reached by public transport from Central Station. Catch a train to Cronulla, a day out all by it’s self, then a bus to Kurnell. We love this place, being away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Nice to Marseille – a 2 day Coastal Road Trip (Part 2)

According to our Michelin route planner, the fastest way from St Tropez to Toulon was via D58 with a driving time of one hour and 20 minutes. It was a straight forward drive although we thought if it was during the day, we would have been able appreciate the scenic views a lot more with a few stops here and there. We joined A570 in Hyeres then the A57 into Toulon.

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.

Things to do in Brussels, Belgium

When I think of decadent chocolates, beers, top restaurants, vintage markets and medieval buildings, Belgium tops my list as a-must visit. This is my fourth time to explore Brussels and I never get tired of the attractions this cosmopolitan city has to offer. Two years ago when I was there in September, it was the yearly Car-Free Sunday where motorists are encouraged to give up their cars for a day. Car traffic not being allowed in the Brussels Region from 9:30 am till 7:00 pm. It’s almost surreal how good the feeling is walking along the empty streets. Numerous activities take place during the day like push bike riding, flea markets and street parties, it’s so much fun!
