The vibrant colors of Cairns Botanic Gardens Queensland

The Cairns Botanic Gardens in Queensland are famous for having one of the best tropical plant exhibitions in Australia.

Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park

When I was young one of my favorite cartoon characters was that crazy Tasmanian devil in the Looney Tunes cartoon series. Funny enough many people think this is what a real one looks like. In my wildest dreams I never thought I’d see one. Ever. When I moved to Tasmania I knew I would get [...]

Camping in Cape Tribulation- our first campervan experience

Living out of a campervan can be someone’s idea of a dream or a nightmare. Although I’ve been in Australia a few months now I had yet to take a road trip. Mike’s birthday came around and we decided to rent a JUCY campa. If you’ve been to Australia chances are you’ve seen one of [...]

Preston Market: 40 years old and thriving in Melbourne

I’ve been staying with friends here in the suburbs of Melbourne and I asked them to take me to the best local market they knew. Lucky for me, my friend Helen’s parents own a shop in one of the oldest traditional markets in Melbourne and we’d be heading there to pick up some groceries. I [...]
