Vineyards, wine and work

Yes, you read correctly – vineyards, wineries and work (all together). I recently visited and stayed at the Hunter Valley in New South Wales for a few days to attend a work conference so we were surrounded by beautiful vineyards. Welcome to wine country!

It’s definitely one to add to the bucket list…something a little different, and Continue Reading »

Let’s talk movies: Gone Girl

I haven’t actually read this book but after seeing the review and trailer for this movie, I dragged my reluctant husband to go and see it with me after work on Friday night.  Without giving away too much of the movie to those who’ve not yet seen it, or read the book…I’d recommend seeing it!

Baby Travel from Ella Vincent

Guest post by Ella Vincent: Important Things to Consider While Travelling With Baby

Travelling with a baby is not easy especially if it is his first journey in the car. The frequent twists, turns and bumps will disrupt his sleep.

What’s APP-ilicious when you travel?

I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of using APPs while travelling, it’s so much easier than paper. The one I use the most is “Tripit” because it pretty much keeps all your travel info in 1 app with real-time updates. Not to mention, it’s available for most startphones and tablets whether Continue Reading »

In the movies: 22 Jump Street

If you’re looking for a good laugh and in the mood for some stupidly funny comedy, go and see this movie. It’s light-hearted and ridiculous, crazy and stupid, and overall – hilarious! If you saw the first movie (21 Jump Street), it’s along the same lines of comedy with a different story line. So, if Continue Reading »
