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…

Only in Whistler

Our family has just spent 8 days together in Whistler -British Columbia, Canada. A trip for 18 people from 4 different families, requires a plan to plan and of course I love a good planning project! Christmas 2018, we shared with our kids that we were planning a trip to Canada for Christmas 2019 and would they like to join us….. most were interested straight away, and as we…

Lunch – under orange groves and olive trees…

The Sahara Desert – Morocco

It’s time…….. to get on our bus again and start climbing the middle Atlas Mountain range- and what a view. Hills and fields all turning beautiful autumn shades. The French built the first town we come to after Fes – the little town is called Ifrane meaning cave to remind them of their European towns and yes there is are ski fields. For us Australians on our…
