Berlin History Sightseeing

Posted in - Germany & Travelling Me on August 18th 2016 0 Comments Statue

There are three things I distinctly remember about our travels through Berlin- beer, bratwurst and history.

Berlin experienced some heavy historical events during the World Wars and the strongest message I learnt from wandering between memorials in the German capital is no one wins in war times. And those that become threatened by intelligence of others are …

Posted in - Budget Travel Australia & Camping & Great Southern & Healthy life & Microadventure Perth & South West & Southern forests & Travelling Me & western australia & Wheatbelt on July 30th 2016 0 Comments Fishing

Early childhood holidays were in a remote beach hut community, surrounded by sand dunes, daily encounters with kangaroos and emus, and stories of a haunted hut.

Following a long weekend in Binningup we embarked on a slightly ambitious journey to drive down to Pemberton to check out the town’s mountain bike park before driving back to Perth, the very same day, and in time to prepare for work the next day.

This Easter long weekend we joined the annual migration to the southern region of West Australia for a quiet weekend in the country. It’s been a couple of years since we’ve taken advantage of the longest holiday break in the WA year, to escape the city and become the annoying out of towners! Suffice to say we …
