We head north to Port Douglas

Day two of the fantastic 4 team! The adventure began with a drive north of Cairns, to Port Douglas. We had heard that the road itself being only 40 something km would in fact take us up to anywhere near 3 hours to drive, give or take a little. That was due to the fact … Continue reading We head north to Port Douglas

Welcome Chris and Annette!

Alex’s parents have arrived! And in good Alyce and Alex style we arrived just in time before they walked out of the gate. For anyone unaware of our track record, we are normally late to the airport, sorry Li, or we are there just in time, 1 minute before a gate closes to be precise. … Continue reading Welcome Chris and Annette!

First stop in QLD: Mt Isa

Unaware of what a town like Mt Isa had to offer, like many other towns we intended on staying in, we stopped first at the visitors centre. Turns out Mt Isa is a mining town, they mine copper, zinc, silver and lead. When we were trying to remember what they mined Alex's response was a … Continue reading First stop in QLD: Mt Isa

Have you seen Kakadu? No? Neither have we…

Ok so technically we have been to Kakadu, however our quick stay there and the events that caused this definitely did not allow us to really see the whole area, and thus we feel we did not really see Kakadu. So let’s start at the beginning. As mentioned in our last post, once we finally … Continue reading Have you seen Kakadu? No? Neither have we…

Let me begin this blog by first saying there is a lot of excitement in finally re-telling this story, to think back it was quite a load of hilarious horse sh**! However it must be known that the contents below caused severe stress, cost us a fair bit of $$, there were way to many … Continue reading When 1 day in Darwin turns into an unintended week….#cartroubles

Attempting to be the next Indonesian Masterchef!

It’s our third day in Bali, out of four in total and other than some serious relaxing we wanted to do something a little different. When I had visited Bali with my family in April we had gone to a cooking class in Seminyak, and it had been so much fun. So when we discussed … Continue reading Attempting to be the next Indonesian Masterchef!

Plantation Bar & Grill: Where food dreams come true!

We spent our second day relaxing mostly by the pool, with only one exception, where we left our hotel only to eat lunch. We did not do too much else because one, we didn’t have to and two, because that evening we were going to indulge in a birthday meal from heaven! In April I … Continue reading Plantation Bar & Grill: Where food dreams come true!
