J 🌸A 🌸P 🌸A 🌸N 2024

As the offical end of summer approaches here in Sydney and Taylor Swift has wowed a lot of us here this weekend, I’m heading to Japan next Friday and am super excited. It’s currently snowing in Hakuba. My partner Steve and his soccer mates – the 56er’s are currently there for 10 days. Steve suggested I fly over for a “few days skiing” after the soccer boys…

My Big Fat Greek Adventure- Magical Milos 2023

Ah Milos, I’m not going to lie, in fact I may just be throwing a hand grenade, but stick with me…..a quick 40 minute Seajet boat ride from Sifnos and we are in Milos! We are staying 10 minutes from the main port of Adamas, at Mandrakia a small village in a traditional style villa. It’s remote, coastal and we love it. – I think. Throughout…

My Big Fat Greek Adventure Sifnos-2023

Sifnos – few days is all we need here on a smaller quieter island.

You now need to have a motorbike rider licence from your home…

Our Big Fat Greek Adventure-Mykonos 2023

Hello world, A comical start to our trip to the Greek Islands, when at 3.10am, we hopped into the hire car out the front of our house and drove off headed to the airport. Ten minutes into the trip, the driver gets a text and moans oh no, and as he randomly did a U turn in the middle of our main road and asked Steve if his name…

Sensational Sahara and other adventures

  If you have never been to the Sahara desert and you get an opportunity please add it to your list. This is the second time I have been blessed to see it, all be it in a heat wave which wasn’t planned. I had a beanie and a puffer jacket packed…… It is a long way on a small group tour but so worth it.  36 degrees called…
