Brisbane Caravan and Camping Show Review

By | Day Trip Reviews, Reviews | No Comments

Brisbane Caravan and Camping Show Review Freedom. Have a think about that word. Freedom conjures up the dreams of doing what you want to do when you want to do it. For most freedom represents no boss, no job and the time to travel the world, answerable to no-one (except perhaps your spouse!). Freedom. Something to be gained, no more shackles, no more daily grind, no more orders. That, together with the feeling of wellbeing, relaxation and happiness all rolled into one. That’s true freedom.

Travel and Living: How We Travel The World How we travel the world is a question we are asked by many people, friends, family and strangers included. They are generally curious and want to know how we can travel all over the world so often, several times a year. The truth is it’s just a perception, we don’t travel “all the time” (I wish!) as most people think, we travel overseas only once per year, have one interstate trip and several weekends away or mid-week getaways.

By | Travel Planning | No Comments

Best Places to Travel in December Last week one of our lovely community members over on Facebook asked me to recommend a “gorgeous place to go for Christmas” this year. As the member is from the Northern Hemisphere, the United Kingdom to be exact she wants to escape the cold miserable winter (and who can blame her!!) for a few weeks of sunshine. You can see by my response South East Asia was my tip, however, I’m aware of travel time eating into precious holiday time so here are some suggestions for shorter distances from the U.K. Typically you will be…
