My mum came to visit me for the first time since we moved to Perth over 2 years ago. I bought her plane tickets over for her 60th birthday, and wanted to show her the best of what Perth has to offer.

Unfortunately, we listen to the rental car's GPS, instead of Google Maps. So 3.5 hours later, we turned up at the Cradle Mountain visitor center. While it… Read More "A Weekend in Launceston – Part 3"

The sun was finally shining in Perth and it was the perfect day to jump on our bicycles and check out what Swan Valley had to offer us. Our first stop was Lancaster wines, one of my favourites. We did a tasting of their white range (their sparkling was deliciously refreshing after our ride) and… Read More "Cycling Swan Valley"
A rainy day in a coastal town can often be fraught with boredom. Especially for 2 big kids like us. Matt and I had just spent the morning doing boring work related things and needed to get out of the house. We walked down to Fremantle for some lunch and an adventure. After a delicious… Read More "WA Shipwreck Museum"
