For our latest Instameet, we headed off for the lush and tranquil Mount Field National Park to witness the changing of the Fagus, Tasmania’s only deciduous plant. Mount Field is also celebrating its 100th anniversary this year so our visit couldn’t have come at a better time to help promote the park and raise awareness … More Mount Field Instameet
We had the pleasure of staying in Melbourne for Christmas last year (still not quite used to saying that this early in 2016) and part of our trip involved a trip to Werribee Open Range Zoo, located 35km outside the city centre. It’s quite similar in a way to a zoo we visited in the … More Werribee Open Range Zoo: An African Adventure
This is going to be the first post of a few from a wee stroll I went on the other day, which turned into quite the long walk indeed. I’ve been living in Hobart for several months now and there’s still so many places in the city and surrounds I’ve yet to see. I decided … More Hobart Regatta Grounds
The Lonely Planet guidebook of Tasmania is a great resource for those visiting this beautiful island and it was a fantastic Christmas gift from my parents that really helped us figure out the key sites of Tasmania. The one minor complaint I might direct at the guide is that it’s perhaps a little light on … More Lonely Planet Hobart Walking Tour
With just a few weeks left in the Czech Republic and lots of work to do to get ready for our next adventure I haven’t been able to get out and about to take pictures and go on adventures. For those of you who follow my Instagram feed, you’ll notice I have been taking plenty … More Park Na Špici and introducing Frank

I sent Sinéad a message on Facebook on Wednesday saying we should do something this weekend and go somewhere new…..an hour or … More Weekend trip to Olomouc in Moravia.
It’s a strange place to visit, old Alcatraz. Given what it was, it really shouldn’t be a tourist destination. And yet, millions of people go there every year to ooh and aah at the former homes of murderers, rapists and hardcore criminals. Hell, if you’re “lucky”, you can even have a chat with a former … More Welcome to the Rock
We of course all know Alcatraz as that island on which Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery saved us all from the evil Ed Harris. The Rock as it’s commonly known in both the movies and real life sits proudly in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. Initially home to flocks of birds, it was first … More Around Alcatraz Island
This past weekend I decided I’d go to the seaside on my adventure day as who doesn’t love a day at the beach? We had come fairly close….ish on an earlier visit to Golden Gate Park (more on that wonderful place later) but stayed around the Eastern areas of the park, not venturing towards the … More Yeah Ocean, Beach!
