Weird/wonderful guide: Vanuatu

Port Vila

So I maaaaay have been Googling Vanuatu travel tips at work today and I may have found a really unusual website. While technically not work-related, I was pleasantly surprised by what I read.

I am moving to Tamworth


And there may well be peaches involved. Yes, friends,  I am returning to the wild North West; home of Country Music, the Golden Guitar and kooky religious groups. For every 10 people, there’s a church with a neon cross.

Hawaii – a love story


I just got back from a work trip to Hawaii; eight days, two islands, four journalists and a lot of fancy hotel dinners.
