Sunsets in Paradise

I am a total sucker for natural beauty; Everywhere you go there are so many breathtaking scenes, beautiful examples of Mother Nature at her very best.

I came to this country knowing hardly anything about it, with no expectations, with one goal; to see Angkor Wat. I’m now a mere 12 hours from leaving, my heart is heavy and I have an utter feeling… Continue reading Leaving Cambodia: I’m Packing Again

Seaviews, Smiles & Swings

For me happiness starts with a seaview. From my (well, mine for the next week!) living room window here in Seacliff Park, if the clouds aren’t sitting too low and the sun shine is just right, I’m usually lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the sparking, turquoise gem that is the ocean.

‘Summer Spectacles’

Spring has arrived and it has brought a lil bit of summer with it. It’s currently a very toasty 23 degrees here in the Lake Macquarie region of NSW; the skies are an endless powder blue, the birds are chirping happily and I’ve dug out my numerous bikinis that have been residing at the very… Continue reading ‘Summer Spectacles’
