  • When friend Celeste of Berrytravels suggested we drop into Cumulus Inc for breakfast when we’re in Melbourne, I scoffed at how far it would be to walk from our hotel on Google Maps. Little did we know Jessalyn of Feed Me Now Brisbane, who happened to be visiting Melbourne at the same time, would be keen to pay them a visit and it turned out to be such an easy stroll in the blistering cold morning air.

  • Bills is one of Bill Granger's three restaurants in Sydney. We hadn't planned on dropping in, but we had a late lazy start to the morning. What else can one expect on a long weekend besides snugging under the warm covers with the heavy hotel curtains drawn to block out any sunshine?

  • The SO is not usually the most romantic person in the world, so when he told me weeks ago he had a surprise in store for my birthday, I was curious and desperately annoyed that he was keeping the details from me, because I hate surprises. He finally relented a week or two beforehand and let me in on the secret: we were to go horse riding in the Mary Valley.

  • Leaf Espresso Bar is truly a hidden gem. It wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to think it's unlikely anyone who does not live in the suburb would think to find this cafe bar, because it is well nestled in the greenery of mature tree lined suburbia. Even the frontage seemed initially unassuming.
