A holiday in Sydney – Potts Point

By | March 1st, 2020|bars and restaurants, friends, holidays|

Sydney is a nice city, I think. I was lucky enough to be staying in Potts Point for the five days I stayed in Sydney after the trade fair. The Airbnb apartment wasn't the Hilton, but it was the absolute best location, and the view from the balcony outside my room was amazing. Each morning [...]

Riverboats Music Festival 2020

By | February 16th, 2020|holidays, music, parks and gardens|

I think the thing that struck me about the Riverboats Music Festival in Echuca over the past weekend was how organised it was. There was ample shade from beautiful big gum trees and umbrellas as well as lots of seating that could be rearranged to suit guest's needs. Perhaps because guests were allowed to bring [...]

Triple J Hottest 100 – 2019

By | February 2nd, 2020|holidays, music, radio|

Improved musical literacy did provide something of an advantage come the Triple J Hottest 100 though. Voting was easier this year. It was easy to identify the songs that I loved from the list provided. I voted early and was gutted to find that Oscar Wilde by The Cat Empire was not on the list. [...]

Exploring wineries on the Bass Coast Victoria

By | April 21st, 2019|bars and restaurants, holidays|

A fun weekend to get out of Melbourne and go on an adventure can be a trip to the Bass Coast. It takes about two hours to get there from Melbourne and if you can’t find accommodation on Phillip Island there are lots of little towns around to explore the region. We stayed at Corinella [...]

Beautiful, lush, scary, suffocated Sydney

By | February 22nd, 2019|daily life, design, holidays, parks and gardens|

It is interesting to travel. It really does expand my perspective. And I should do it more, I think because I suspect that it helps build adaptability and goodness knows we all need that. Sydney is only 1000 km away (or so), but it feels like it is a completely different country! This is amazing [...]

What were your favourites? Hottest 100 2018

By | January 28th, 2019|holidays, music, radio|

How amazing was the Hottest 100 yesterday? Did you listen to it? I started to listen at around number 67 - which I think was Flight Facilities - Need You {Ft. NIKA}. Actually that was number 66, sorry - my mistake. The highlights of the countdown for me were:63 - BOOGIE - BROCKHAMPTON62 - Killing [...]
