5 top things we enjoyed in Melbourne

Walk round Fitzroy

We’re staying in Fitzroy, an older, elegant part of Melbourne, with some beautiful old buildings. We are enjoying staying in the Cairo building, Art Deco, built in 1936, with a bunch of interesting shops, restaurants and street art around. There’s also a tram stop right outside, and the Melbourne Museum across the road, what a great location!

7 Top Things to do in Sydney

The first stop on our year-long visit to Australia was the iconic harbour city of Sydney. Such a beautiful city! Lots of stunning new architecture, we especially loved all the greenery and planting on balconies. There’s a lively, vibrant, young feel to the city, I can imagine living here  🙂

“I’m going to Memphis, Memphis Tennessee…”

Well we went to Memphis last March, partly because it was on our route, and partly because I really wanted to see Beale Street and the home of the blues. We had just spent two glorious weeks in New Orleans, steeping ourselves in the live music venues of Frenchman Street, and I was really looking forward to something similar in Memphis.

Postcards from Venice

Reminiscing, looking back in my files, and I see that I didn’t post anything about glorious Venice, La Serenissima… Chris and I spent a few days there at the end of May 2014, and it is everything that you think it is, and more!

On the water in Key Largo

We’re not sailors, the closest we come to it is being on a dive boat, but we decided to book accommodation through airbnb that is a BOAT, yes really!  We’re staying on a sailboat in the Pilot House Marina in Key Largo.
