Our plans to cycle along the river were halted not even half way when out of nowhere I experienced some fairly sharp piercing pains to the right side of one of my knees. Arghhh! When it became clear I couldn’t continue cycling we boarded the train for Perth at Canning Bridge, and all the while …Read more »
Finishing our 3 day ride along the Munda Biddi trail and 71km behind us, we were talking about a nice big meal and barista made coffee when we rolled into Donnelly River Village. After we unpacked the bikes and trailers we made our way to the nearby town of Bridgetown, wandering along the main strip …Read more »
Well, 220,000 kms and 10 years later, we upgraded our car and to say the least, it has been a well deserved purchase and I’m super happy. I have a tendency for holding onto things :). 10 years sure does equal a whole heap of electronic advancements in automotion. There is a button for almost everything and seat heaters are …Read more »

This wintery evening we stopped in at Tommy Sugo, a pop up store located at Stimulatte Café in Subiaco.

Fresh pasta and great ingredients combined with an Italian …Read more »

When I initially phoned earlier in the week to make a reservation, the staff member advised the restaurant doesn’t take bookings on a Saturday of which I responded ‘I have a …Read more »

We’ve had a good dinner …Read more »
Wandering through the promenade at Claremont Quarter, we were lured into Lucioli Bar by the sweet display of Italian pastries and cakes. I can be easily distracted in the pursuit of delicious food, especially cakes. The Italian bar and restaurant is a nice addition to Claremont and apart from coffee and food, diners can enjoy …Read more »
Celebrating a friend’s birthday, a group of us spent a Saturday evening at the Rhein Donau Club in Myaree. The interior of the club is very much old school European and I doubt much has changed since it opened in 1959. Features of wood constructed booths, lanterns and alpine trimmings add to the European charm. …Read more »
The final days of the ski season and the small Japanese mountain village is gaining back some of its normality. In the cold evening we walk up a deserted slope from our ryokan towards a warmly lit door, plastic sushi samples sit in the dusty window illustrating the menu for foreigners. Gradually sliding …Read more »
