Eight friends, one fun weekend away

Life really can get the best of you sometimes and it can be so easy to let  months pass between visits with good friends. Back in February we decided  to stop procrastinating and plan something fun for a small group of us. We finally booked the weekend away that we seemed to talk about for years, but never made happen. So […]...continue reading →

A perfect night’s sleep

I’ve slept in a lot of uncomfortable places and on a lot of terrible beds in my time. There was the time I chose to sleep on an ottoman half my size rather than the rock hard rollaway bed in Bali, the time I had to drag a mattress down the hallway of a hotel room to avoid the snoring of […]...continue reading →

The last time I was there I spent most of my days in the hotel room vomiting (not to mention my day in an Italian hospital) so this visit was much more pleasant. We stayed with our Italian friends Stefano and Simona whom we met in Sydney but who have since moved back […]...continue reading →

Tuscany

Hey would you look at that… turns out I did write one more blog on a train while we were in Italy. I didn’t even remember. June 20, 2013 Ahhh Tuscany… the peace and tranquility we so desperately needed after nearly two weeks of crazy train travel and one to two nights in each city. It was a breath of fresh […]...continue reading →
