Last Monday Kerry and I said our final farewell to Adelaide and boarded a plane back to the dizzying heights of Sydney. SA was definitely an experience; Adelaide is a beautiful, buoyant city, there are dreamy, postcard-esque coastlines and charming rural towns full of history and traditional architecture. The people we met during our 2… Continue reading Easy Peasy Polenta
Over the past few days I’ve been watching a lot of The Food Network. And when I say a lot, I basically mean I haven’t turned it off. It’s been one of those kinda weeks.

Yesterday we… Continue reading Seaviews, Smiles & Swings
A few weeks ago Kerry and I once again waved goodbye to relative stability and boarded a plane to the unknown. Well, South Australia, but we haven’t ventured to this part of the world before, it was exciting, scary and a little bit magical… We left Sydney on a grey, rain soaked, Friday morning, feeling… Continue reading Adelaide!!
