5 Reasons to Love Fiji!

Although we only spent two weeks in Fiji, it’s the kind of place that captures your heart almost immediately. The country is like nowhere else I have ever been and while the mainland isn’t spectacular by any means, the islands are the closest to stereotypical paradise that I have experienced. Here are just 5 reasons […]

Brisbane, Australia.

As mentioned in earlier posts we ended up staying in Brisbane twice – once on the way up to Port Douglas and then again right at the end of our trip as this was where we would fly out to Fiji. We spent five days driving from Port Douglas to Brisbane, stopping off in Noosa […]

Cape Tribulation & The Daintree Rainforest, Australia.

Our day trip to Cape Tribulation marked the most northern point of Australia visited during our two and a half months in the country.
