Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays


Indian Pacific Rail from Adelaide to Perth

I was lucky to participate in  the 7 night Food and Wine package with Great Southern Rail and it was a very different kind of train trip. The package includes 2 nights pre-tour in Adelaide and 2 nights post tour in Perth with several inclusions along the way including guest chefs, chocolatiers, cheese-mongers, wine experts etc. A fun way to get to the west coast of Australia.

Oceania Regatta Short Cruise

Experienced a short cruise on Oceania, the highlight of which were the fantastic meals along with the very comfortable cabins and facilities which I would totally recommend. 


In 2017, we "Tiki-toured" around the champagne area of France as we had a wedding to attend to. We got the train from the Airport to Reims and picked up a rental car. The areas around Strasbourg, Obernai, Ribeauville, Besancon, Beaune are all very quaint and pretty with lots of character. Well worth a visit!

Bali- Gilli Trawangan

Another wedding to go to here and got ferry from Bali which took about 2.5 hours. The ferry service includes pick up from your Bali hotel. Trawangan has big variety of accommodation and caters mainly for younger people. Easy to hire a bicycle to ride around the island and when tide is high, lovely to swim in the sea but best to have accommodation with a pool if possible. Very laid back..
