First stop in Bali – we needed a place close to the airport for our midnight arrival, preferably near the beach and preferably cheap. Come on down Jimbaran Bay! The biggest attraction for us being that the area boasts the best seafood in Bali. While Andres slept off his recent lengthy night shifts I took an early morning […]

Oktoberfest – Aussie style

Apparently Australia hosts the biggest Oktoberfest action in the world – outside of  Germany.

Hanging out with two friends I’ve known for over twenty years, Andres and I made the most of a visit to the coastal town of Noosa by hitting the waterways.

Hitting up the fine wine trail through Australia’s Hunter Valley

There’s a place very close to my heart a mere two hours from Sydney. Not only does my sister live there, but it’s also a land of wine and honey.
