If you’re looking for some of the most stunning coastal places in Australia, I have some hidden – and not so hidden – gems for you. As part of our (re) Discover Australia road trip, I have been left breathless with much of the coastline Australia has to offer.
I’ve travelled for years and I’m always curious what people take in their carry-on. So, here’s mine: What is always packed in my carry-on.
Everyone has their favourite playlist when they are on a roadtrip. I have a playlist that kicks off a roadtrip, but when I’m settled in, this is the playlist I reach for. I’m bound to catch some flak for some of the choices but I don’t care. I can sing them at the top of my longs because they are songs I LOVE. Some oldies, some current hits… all good stuff.
While the region is popular, it’s not only for the wine lovers. It’s foodie heaven. There’s local farm produce, down to earth goodies and gourmet offerings all over the place.
What was a curious interest in the area, turned out to be interesting days of exploration. What a delight the Yarra Valley turned out to be! We even extended our stay. We headed onwards from there to Ballarat where I shared some of Australia’s gold history with Rich.
I have a condition called Misophonia.
I didn’t realize I had it until I was in my late thirties. I mean, I knew something was wrong, but I didn’t know there was a name for it. Misophonia is a condition in which a person reacts extremely negatively to certain sounds that most people take little or no notice of. It’s not easy to live with, let alone travel with. Here’s what it is, how I deal with it, and where to find support.
