On our long weekend trip to Kiama on the South Coast of New South Wales, we made sure we stopped in to Bombo Quarry. This would probably be one of my favourite stops on our trip to Kiama. Bombo Quarry is located a little south of Cathedral Rocks. Going back around 70 years, Bombo Quarry was once an active quarry but today is one of Australia’s most famous seascape locations.

The saddest place I’ve ever visited. Our visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau was just that, sad. Nothing and no one can prepare you for the intense emotions, thoughts and questions you will have as you walk the paths of Auschwitz. The brutality, medical experiments and in your face cruelty, makes this, a must visit historical (let’s not forget this was not that long ago) site to truly appreciate what happened, what the victims went… Read More

Living in Sydney, we frequently visit our friends and family in Brisbane, so we’re always looking out for great deals to reduce the cost. The ‘deal’ I’m referring to in this post is not as much as a deal, but rather a free domestic return Virgin Australia flight every year as part of one of the benefits attached to our American Express Platinum Edge credit card. American Express. I know, what is this… Read More

While we were staying at Kiama, on the South Cost of New South Wales, we stopped by Cathedral Rocks to see what all the fuss was about. Located around 4km north of Kiama, you will find Cathedral Rocks, an awesome rugged coastal rock formation. After doing plenty of research, we decided on a very early start and get there for sunrise. Getting to Cathedral Rocks: Cathedral Rocks is around a 1.5 hour drive… Read More

“Take a journey through a frozen maze of towering ice formations, jagged ridges, and deep blue crevasses!” Probably one of the most incredible experiences we’ve had. It is truly remarkable and something not everyone has experienced, it is simply breathtaking. We booked a full day tour from Reykjavik, Iceland with Arctic Adventures. This was a must do on our trip to Iceland, as it gives you the opportunity to hike the incredible Sólheimajökull Glacier… Read More

Located 120km south of Sydney, nestled in the Illawarra, New South Wales, Australia is the gorgeous village of Kiama.

A visit to Sydney is not complete without a stop off at The Lord Nelson Brewery, Sydney’s oldest continually licensed hotel, established in 1841. Located in the Rocks (Sydney’s historic precinct) you can’t get a more appropriate area to house the pub. After living in London for two years, sitting in The Lord Nelson made us feel a little nostalgic… it was a rainy day, the trees had lost their leaves, the… Read More

Surrounded by mountains and incredible local culture, it is quite easy to see why Lake Como (or Lago di Como as the locals call it) has become one of Italy’s most popular holiday destinations. At just over an hour drive north of Milan, Lake Como has many things on offer and is a perfect way to spend a long weekend. We visited Lake Como in early September and the weather was spectacular….

Kakadu National Park is World Heritage listed and covers an area of more than 19,800 square km’s. There is so much wildlife to see in Kakadu from thousands of different insects, plants and hundreds of bird species. There are many rock art sites which showcase Aboriginal culture which dates back to around 50,000 years ago. Kakadu was a must for us, but we struggled to find a variety of tours given it… Read More
