Putting a gift voucher to good use, we spend our last morning of 2016 relaxing in the scenic surrounds of Rottnest Island.

Boarding the first ferry from B Shed in the Fremantle Port at 7.15 am, the journey is fairly uneventful as we travel the open seas and past some gigantic looking container ships. …

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.

Posted in - Cycle Friendly Cafes & Cycle Perth & Healthy life & Microadventure Perth & Travelling Me on July 15th 2016 2 Comments Jacobs-Ladder

The best part of Perth’s winter for a cyclist, aside from the abundance of perfect sunny days is more importantly the drop in wind conditions. A window of opportunity for an enjoyable ride. Knowing this small fact makes the winter months a whole lot more fun and keeps us busy to say the least.  Lately, I’ve …
