Going for Gold.

Consistent waves rolling in with smells of salts in the air and a light fresh breeze on your skin. The morning energy increasing as the sun is rising over the big, blue tropical ocean. What a magical part of this beautiful world to watch the sunrise – Burleigh Heads, Australia.     Stroll around, go for…

Open at 5am

One of the less wonderful parts of being a parent is the night time wake ups. When they are sick, teething, having nightmares, cold, hot, falling out of bed, or sneaking into your bed for snuggles. Last night was one of those nights where at least one of the above was happening… for all three children….

Down by the bay

While experiencing the relaxing atmosphere of Shorncliffe complete with the pier by the beach, the sun and the sand. We decided to find a spot for breakfast and a coffee and only had to go as far as Sandgate to find the Matthew Thomas Cafe! This very stylish building caught our eye with it’s charm…

Sunday Mornings

There is nowhere more relaxing than a Sunday morning kicking back at Sea Salt and Vine Cafe in Scarborough at the tip of the Redcliffe Penninsula just north of Brisbane.

Cafe Coffee for Cafe Racers

Can it get any better than this, an awesome coffee café that doubles as a café racer motorbike shop? Sitting only 100 steps from beautiful Palm Beach on the Gold Coast is the Espresso Moto Café & Bikeworks. My favorite table is at the rear of the café where I enjoy an Allpress Guatemalan blend…

Beach, Birds and a Rich Refreshing Brew

Life gets busy. In fact, too busy on most days, for most of us. Sometimes you reach the point where you can’t do any more without a breather. When this happens to me, I look for somewhere I can spend the least amount of precious time to regain the most amount of energy, and I’ve…

I like them rich, hot & strong.

First dates, surely the most nerve racking experience someone can have. Where do you go? What do you say? What do i wear? All the questions that run through your head to make sure you leave a good first impression. I don’t want to add pressure to anyone in the single world, but could the first…

Percy Island Exclusive Adventure

The island was positioned in the bottom of the Whitsundays and as we lay the anchor, my 3 legged dog Polly just wanted to go and hunt down some ever wonderful sniffs. We launched the dinghy and headed ashore to see the Percy Island, A frame… famous with boat people all up and down the…
