I dislike of being cold, I’m a creature in my element in warm conditions. It was bitterly cold in Salta, Argentina – much colder than winters in mild weathered Sydney. The thought of wearing a beanie or hat for warmth in Sydney hasn’t ever come close to crossing my mind, yet in Salta I would [...]

Our first 2 days of our trip were spent in Buenos Aires – eating, relaxing and easing into holiday mode and finding our feet with the language. On day 3 we caught a plane to Salta, in the north west corner of Argentina at the foothills of the Andes. Through our research we were attracted [...]

A holiday in South America! With a full month to divvy up and allocate, the Co-pilot and I did very thorough research on where we wanted to go, see and do. In fact there was months of research in preparation – we’d consulted countless guide books, blogs, websites, food shows, travel articles, friends’ personal recommendations [...]

Given I’m currently on holiday in South America I thought it was most befitting that I endeavour to finish all the posts from my previous holiday in Vietnam! And as I’ve just bought myself a nifty little notebook it makes blogging whilst on holiday convenient and a good use of the often long travel times. [...]

Vietnamese eating tour – Ho Chi Minh (part 2)

July 13, 2009

The second part of the Ho Chi Minh eating tour sees us setting off for the Binh Tay markets in Chinatown. We decide to set off early and walk there leisurely before the humidity melts us and before we become sticky and irritated. The walk has us navigating the gauntlet of speeding, weaving, beeping motorbikes. [...]

Decadent gluttony in the first class lounge

February 25, 2009

The co-pilot and I recently travelled to NZ to visit family on Waiheke Island. And because we were travelling internationally, we made use of the (new) Qantas first class lounge in Sydney – a small positive that comes from the co-pilot’s incessant travelling and consequent Platinum frequent flyer status. I was excited as this was [...]

The Asian Food Odyssey – Part 3 (final): Hong Kong

December 20, 2008

The final section of our trip was spent in Hong Kong – where I really released my inner foodie and went hunting for the foodie dishes I’d researched about before embarking on this trip. Mantis prawns featured highly on this trip. They’re something I find synonymous with HK as we can’t get these critters in [...]
