Travel Tales: Shawn Low, Lonely Planet’s Travel Editor (Asia Pacific)

Name: Shawn Low Age: Early 30’s Occupation: Lonely Planet’s Travel Editor (Asia Pacific) Favourite travel destination?: China. It has a long history, deep and vibrant culture, and sheer variety when it comes to sights. You have modern cities (Beijing and Shanghai) and rural countryside (Xishuangbanna) and everything in-between. It’s frustrating to get round at times […]

Where do you belong?

where-do-you-belong

Do we ‘belong’ in the town where we were born? The community we grew up in? Or is belonging more to do with the people we surround ourselves with than any geographic location? I think it’s a combination of all three. I grew up in Tamworth, NSW and subsequently, I  feel more at ease in the countryside than […]

We will remember them

ANZAC Day is sad. It makes me think about suffering and destruction and The Last Post always makes me cry. Despite the fact that my life has been blessedly free from war, I imagine the pain of the people who have been touched by it’s cold, bloody hands. Like many Australians, both of my grandfathers […]

Lisa’s Deal of the Week: Cruisy

lisas-deal-of-the-week-3

Lisa’s Deal of the Week When it comes to cruising, there are plenty of agents in the sea offering cabins for next to nothing which, funnily enough, also tend to be next to the engines or akin to a matchbox in size. Every now and then though, a deal comes up that includes a cabin […]

I bought a vintage caravan

i-bought-a-vintage-caravan

This was not a smart financial decision but just look at it…   What’s not to love? I am going to do it up and then we can all go on a retro road trip together. Maybe we can even go back in time? Incidentally, does anyone know a good caravan mechanic? Or someone who […]

Melbourne: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

melbourne-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly

There’s nothing like a 100 year storm to make a trip memorable. The Future Husband and I were just minding our own business when the skies opened up and emptied the freezer section on our heads. We were walking back from the Queen Victoria Markets and the weather was looking a bit shady, but hey, […]
