My Sydney Detour — Become A Sydney Local In A Day

By |

We're on our last leg of My Sydney Detour — a tour aiming to help visitors become a Sydney local in a day that doesn’t feel like a tour at all, but more like a drive around Sydney with a mate in a very cool old car. By late afternoon we find ourselves on a ...

Whale Watching in Sydney

By |

We had brilliant success spotting the Big Five on Kenya safaris, we’ve seen abundant wildlife in Australia’s outback when others claimed to have seen little at all, and we never have a problem attracting primates wherever we go, from Costa Rica to Borneo, but we have the worst luck when it comes to marine life. Regardless, ...

Savour Sublime Sydney Views Before Savouring a Sublime Meal

By |

Many of the world’s great restaurants involve a journey — the Royal Mail Hotel, the Fat Duck, the French Laundry, and El Bulli, before it closed. And so it was with Berowra Waters Inn that it was necessary to go by way of sky, sea and river and get to savour sublime Sydney views before savouring ...

But Paris has its boulevards, Venice has its canals, Barcelona has its ramblas, Sydney has its harbour, and, well, Melbourne has its lanes. We half-suspected all the chatter about Melbourne’s famous laneways was simply the result of a successful tourism campaign. And by ...

A Mekong River Cruise to Luang Prabang on the Luang Say Boat

By |

A Mekong River cruise is one of life’s must-do travel experiences as far as we're concerned and a languid three-day Mekong River Cruise to Luang Prabang on the Luang Say boat was the reason we’d flown from Bangkok to Chiang Rai and driven up to the Thai Border city of Houei Say. The Mekong River runs for ...

Bangkok Food Tours — a Foodie Walk Through Old Bangkok

By |

We sighed with relief — and salivated too — when a trio of young Thai foodies set up Bangkok Food Tours and started offering foodie walking tours in Bangkok, one of the world’s great eating capitals. We signed up for their food walk through historic Bangrak or Old Bangkok. We met our culinary guide Jan, from Bangkok Food Tours, ...
