The Buttercups & Bluebells of Surrey's Happy Valley

Dan had told me about this place he'd often visited as a kid called Happy Valley, and of the bright yellow buttercups that cover the fields and the bluebells that blanket the woodland floor in springtime and I couldn't wait for Spring! We don't have bluebells in Australia & I've fallen in love with these beautiful flowers & England in Spring...

Exploring Port Vila, Vanuatu

Our second last stop whilst cruising the South Pacific was Port Vila in Vanuatu.

I was devastated to hear about the Cyclone that hit Vanuatu last month because Port Vila was one of our favourite stops, the people were so kind and the place so incredibly beautiful.

A Weekend of Chocolate, Beer & Christmas Markets in Brussels

We visited Brussels for the Christmas Markets last December and spent our days shopping, sight seeing, ice skating, beer touring and pretty much non stop eating!

It was a perfect pre Christmas city break.

A Moroccan Sahara Desert Tour

We visited Morocco last summer, smack bang in the middle of summer and to say it was hot was an understatement but we didn't let the heat stop us from venturing in the Sahara Desert and for both of us it was a highlight of all travels to date!

As an Australian I absolutely adore the beach so when I discovered that Cornwall actually has sandy beaches we were off on a last minute trip over Easter.

Delicious, Fresh Seafood at The Beach Hut, Watergate Bay

The Beach Hut has humble origins as a bucket and spade shop and over the years has established itself as one of Cornwall's best restaurants and beach side hang outs. Being lovers of both the beach and good food we held pretty high expectations for The Beach Hut... Expectations that were beyond exceeded.

Paris Photo Diary

We visited Paris, the city of love for our anniversary in November last year and it was simply perfect. Paris was alight in stunning oranges, yellows and red being Autumn and we had the most delightful weather to stroll around the city, visit the sites, add a lock to Pont des Arts and spend time relaxing at street side cafes enjoying good food & wine whilst people watching.
