Whiskey, tater tots & mahjong in Chinatown NYC

The best way to see New York is on foot. My boyfriend and I would pick a couple of neighbourhoods for the day and I’d jot down a few addresses of any bars or attractions I wanted to see in the area. Sometimes we made it to those places, other times we didn’t and it didn’t matter. We just wandered around, seeing and hearing (and … Continue reading Whiskey, tater tots & mahjong in Chinatown NYC

My boyfriend and I almost spent the weekend in Sydney, but I’m so glad we decided to stay in Melbourne instead. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve both been in town on the weekend and given that we don’t see much of each other during the week, I was really excited to have a relaxing weekend wandering around Melbourne.

Heathcote Goldfields Victoria

A Day in the Goldfields for Heathcote on Show

I strongly advise against staying out till the early hours of the morning the night before you go wine tasting. Poor life choices and dusty heads aside, my friend Liv and I still had a great day driving around the Goldfields on Saturday. Our plan was to visit wineries in Heathcote, for the Heathcote on Show festival, have lunch at Mason’s in nearby Bendigo and … Continue reading A Day in the Goldfields for Heathcote on Show
