Living, Travelling and Surviving in a Remote Region

Dan and I aren't city people, don't get us wrong we love visiting cities but more often than not we get in, sightsee like crazy to visit all the main attractions and get out. We much prefer visiting remote regions which can include anywhere that is beautiful and not too busy! Some of our favourite holidays have included alpine escapes, gorgeous cabins in the mountains and escaping to the countryside. After these trips we always daydream and talk about moving to the middle of nowhere to start our lives living off the land and enjoying the peace, quiet and natural beauty of nature. Dan sometimes gets really carried away and whilst I am not a city person and there is a lot of things I'd love, there are still some things I would really miss if we lived in a remote region. We were inspired by the Flogas #IWouldMiss Campaign to share how we would survive in a remote region, what we'd miss, what we'd enjoy and also our favourite travel experiences in remote regions!

Our Indonesian Honeymoon Plans

If you're a regular reader of our blog then you'll know that last June we got engaged and since we arrived back in Australia a few months ago we've been planning like crazy! One of the biggest and most exciting parts for us, other than the wedding is of course our honeymoon! Dan and I have been lucky enough to have travelled extensively and have visited almost 30 countries in the last few years together and so choosing a destination for our honeymoon isn't the easiest decision! After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing I think we've finally decided on Indonesia and we can't wait to share how we are thinking of spending our honeymoon in this incredible country!

A Long Weekend at Home in Beautiful Port Macquarie

We were lucky enough to have a long weekend within the first few months of arriving back in Australia and we tossed up between having a weekend away or spending our long weekend at home. We decided to spend the weekend at home enjoying our beautiful home town, Port Macquarie! Despite how many countries, cities, islands, towns and beaches we've visited during our travels, Port Macquarie is still my favourite place in the world. The weather really turned it on for us too with beautiful, sunny days, warm water and plenty of whales passing by!

A Perfect Summers Day at the Port Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival

Last Sunday was the Port Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival and the organisers literally couldn't have ordered better weather for the day! Set against the gorgeous backdrop of the beautiful Hastings River, Westport Park was transformed into a family friendly festival with the aim to "celebrate all the good things in life; beer, cider, food, games and music" which it certainly did!
