• The most important thing I’ve learnt this year

  • Soul gardening

    Monday, December 3, 2018

    Do you know about how crop rotation works? How farmers don’t plant the same crop in the same place year after year? Humans are the same. We can’t keep producing, producing, producing without a rest. We need inputs. If you were a garden, you would need to be weeded, composted, fertilised and replanted. You may […]

    It’s about this time of year that mama needs a long lie down. But here’s the thing: I have a 20 month-old toddler who wakes up at dawn every single day. There is no holiday on earth that can get around that crushing fact. So how can you combine a family holiday where you get […]

A Night at the Asylum: La Trobe at Beechworth and Beechworth Ghost Tours

‘Red rum, red rum,’ I say to my travelling buddy Jamie as we pass a dimly lit conference centre. We are lurking around the grounds of La Trobe at Beechworth looking for McCarthy Cottage.

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week: G’day USA

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week: G’day USA They said it would never happen again, but like so many they’s before them, they got it wrong.

Travel Tales: Jane Lee

I still have great memories of a million winding narrow alleys (none of them looking quite the same), hot summer nights spent sipping sangria with strangers in open courtyards, dancing on my own in underground jazz bars filled with improv musicians and streets bursting […]

Win a 7 day Jucy campervan rental

Being on a budget sucks. Everytime I spend money on something non-essential, I feel really guilty and horrible which really detracts from the overall pleasure of the purchase. Case in point: This morning. I went to the chemist to buy a nail file and came away with two nail polishes (black sateen and goddess), lip […]
