Canberra Wine Guide

Canberra

By Sammie Bliss Overshadowed by its bigger winemaking cousin Adelaide, Canberra is sometimes overlooked as a holiday destination for wine lovers.

So hurry up and book a Canberra hotel […]

Puppy

I am starting to find internet dating soul destroying. My friend calls it disappointment.com. That made me laugh a lot. I have tried out RSVP, OKCupid, Tinder and now eHarmony. When I was living in the country, I gave Harvest Dating a go too. Here’s my take on it – RSVP: A hot bed of confirmed […]

Why I’ll Never Have a Jamaican Boyfriend

Boompah

By Caitlyn Bishop In Jamaica, women don’t have asses, they have ‘boompahs’. That is, ‘bumpers’ only pronounced with a demeaning Patois accent.
