Blue Mountains Wonderland

I love good road trip and have really enjoyed visiting my own backed and state. A few sunny Sundays ago, I went to the Blue Mountains with some ladies I have only recently met virtually. We all belong to a community called @thetravelbootcamp . Janet from the group lives in Dubbo and reached out to see if I wanted to meet her up there, and of course I then reached out…

When the sun took a holiday too……….

We took the ‘travel here this year’ quite literally in 2020 and managed quite a few escapes in New South Wales- our home state thanks to Covid lockdowns.  We were already keen to support small country towns having been inspired in late 2019 by campaigns like ‘Buy from the bush’ and ‘bring an empty esky’.

San Francisco with a side of Monterey Coast

After our busy 8 days in Whistler Canada, Steve, Jess and I have headed to San Francisco for 6 days to chill out! Kidding, an after thought was for a little bit of warmth after our snow trip in Canada and as we are routed through Vancouver, we couldn’t go too far as the flights to and from make travel days hazy. We flew out of Vancouver after another…
