Our Top 10 Moments Of 2010

Our Top 10 Moments Of 2010

I’m fortunate to say that this list became very tricky to write. We have just had such a ball this year in so many different places around the world, it was hard to narrow it down to just 10 top moments. Nonetheless – here it is, top to bottom, our most memorable moments of the year 2010. 10. Sand Dune Jeep Ride – Newcastle, Australia On our trip back to Australia in August we visited some friends of ours in Newcastle, NSW, who’s place backs on to an enormous 20 mile long stretch of wide, undisturbed, beachfront. When you’re out […]

Montmartre District Paris: Review

Montmartre District Paris: Review

As a tourist (and Paris locals or more experience Paris travelers feel free to correct me) Montmartre seemed like the kind of place that was ever so slightly off the main tourist path. It was not a place I’d ever heard anyone talk about after visiting Paris, not a place I’d heard of in books, movies, or tales of adventure. Nonetheless, looking back, visiting the district of Montmartre might just have been the most memorable part of our visit to the French capital. Montmartre is a district in the North of Paris known for it’s theatres, entertainment, and general arty-ness. […]

Keo’s Thai Restaurant Waikiki: Review

The Malecon at Puerto Vallarta

The Malecon at Puerto Vallarta is a beach front strip of shops, restaurants and markets a few hundred meters long in the center of the main part of Puerto Vallarta. The Malecon is also the main tourist drag, filled with mainly older Americans and Canadians escaping their respective winters to grab some sun, take advantage of the exchange rates and pick up a bargain. Regardless of where you are in Puerto Vallarta, you won’t be more than a 15 minute bus ride from the Malecon. To get there, depending on whether you’re North or South of the Malecon at your […]

Wedges, Wine and Waiting – The GC Debacle

Wedges, Wine and Waiting – The GC Debacle

9 hours locked in the Gold Coast departure lounge, 45 minutes in the food line, middle aged women attempting to smoke cigarettes in the ladies bathroom and getting intoxicated with strangers courtesy of $10 Air Asia vouchers. This was how we spent the 29th December 2009… After a whirlwind 3 week stay on the Gold Coast with our friends and families for Christmas we were en route for London, the last leg of our trip before we moved to Mexico! We’d picked up super cheap fares through Air Asia (approximately $700 each one way, incl tax) to fly from the […]
