Portree Harbour, Isle of Skye

Portree Harbour is surrounded by cliffs which sets a stunning view for anybody looking to take a stroll along the waters edge and wharf. Portree itself is the biggest town on the Isle of Skye and a really quaint place to stop off and spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world. I can also recommend a quick bite at Cafe Arriba […]


The Australian Dollar And What It Means For Travel

I was born way back in the early eighties when one Australian dollar got you a huge bag of chips from the local fish and chip shop, you could buy bags of lollies from the corner shop for as little as fifty cents and fuel didn’t cost you an arm and a leg.

St Andrews State Park, Panama City Beach

I took a helicopter ride over Panama City Beach with Panhandle Helicopters while in Florida recently and was greeted with the above as we circled above St Andrews State Park.

But the fear was soon forgotten as the beautiful beach and state park appeared […]

I always saw it as this untouched wilderness that bore truth to tales like the Loch Ness monster. Scotland has this allure to it that not many other places in the world do, it’s as if visiting there could whisk me off into another time. It took me over […]
