Lights… Camera… Action!

Lights… Camera… Action!

There’s nothing quite like grabbing a friend, getting all dressed up and going to a show.

You head to the theatre a little early and grab a cocktail, while everyone stands waiting excitedly, in anticipation of a fantastic evening.

The bell sounds, everyone heads to their seats. The lights dim - the signal to quiet down and wait for the actors to get in their positions.

The curtain comes up, the music starts - and it’s SHOWTIME!

Do you know what I love most about food?

(If you know me, you know there’s a lot - but there is one reason that stands out.)

You could go out for dinner and order spaghetti bolognaise every single night, for five nights, at five different restaurants - and you’ll have a different experience, every time.

Because eating food, while your travelling away from home, is not just about the ingredients you’re being served.

It’s about the way it ties in with the culture of the place you’re visiting. It’s about the scenery you’re looking at while you dine. It’s about the language the waiter who serves you is speaking. And it’s about the new friends you’ve made over dinner.

Food is what brings all the things I love about travelling together, into one beautiful package.

Tasmania, our (secret) favourite

Tasmania, our (secret) favourite

Our tours are like our children - we put our heart and soul into them and they mean the world to us.

And so, of course, we don’t have favourites.

But if we did have a favourite… I’m not saying we do… but if we did…

It would be Tasmania.

It just has so much to offer - a fascinating history, absolutely stunning scenery and mouth watering food.

Fair warning, I’d say the average weight gain for the Tassie trip is about four kilos.

The South Coast, where the country meets the sea

The South Coast, where the country meets the sea

My wife and I are from two different worlds.

Fiona grew up on the coast in Mona Vale, Sydney. She loves the beach and everything about it - the sand between your toes, the esky full of refreshments, the family cricket games.

I spent most of my childhood moving through the outback. This is where my heart is - wide open spaces, animals roaming around, the sun on the horizon. (Have a read of our Stories from the Outback post for more on this great part of the world.)

As a couple, we share each other's love for both these places. 

And for us, the South Coast is the best of both worlds.

Notable Norfolk

Notable Norfolk

Each year, when we are looking to take a holiday, I ask the kids (who are all grown up now) - ‘where do you want to go this year?’

Their answer, each time, is ‘NORFOLK!’

The place is a one-of-a-kind paradise. It’s a land where cows have right of way, there is little phone reception and a speed limit of 50km per hour.

It is the perfect combination between a tropical, relaxing holiday and an action packed adventure.
