London. Five airports, really? If you’re looking to fly in and out of London then this post is for you!  It has all you need to know about flying in and out of London, as well as those nasty little surprises (additional costs) we generally don’t consider when booking your flights. London, as mentioned above, has five major airports: London City, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton and London Stansted. Where you live,… Read More

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. Getting to… 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. One of the main tourist attractions is the Kiama Blowhole, but there is so much more to this gorgeous little town than the blowhole! The village, located on the coast has a few surfing beaches, caravan parks, a little restaurants and within a short drive other popular tourist attractions such as the little… Read More

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

Nitmiluk National Park. Some might know it as Katherine Gorge National Park, spans more than 292,000 hectares. The landscape is a little different to that of Kakadu National Park, but is still green and luscious. The name Nitmiluk actually means ‘Cicada Place’, named by the Jawoyn people who are the traditional custodians of the park. When Jenna started researching things to see from Darwin, Katherine was up there on her list of… Read More

If you’ve been reading our 7 day Italian Love Affair blog on Sardinia, then you know that some of the most incredible beaches are found on this island! As our trip drew to a close, we were able to stop in to one last beach before flying back to London. We spent the morning at Golfo Aranci. The beach was lovely, but not the type of beach I could spend my whole day.  This suited us as we… Read More
