Packing List Tasmania

27 Mar The Best Items to Pack for Tasmania

Tasmania's rugged landscape is not only is a major drawcard for nature lovers but an insight into its dramatic weather conditions. All year round, Tasmania can be quite cold, with some pleasantly warm days sneaking in around summer. Visitor numbers boom over the new year period, with pristine beaches a big part of the island state's appeal. A common mistake made by summer travellers is to pack a beachy wardrobe without a Tassie-proof contingency plan. Add to this, a mix of adventure and 5-star experiences, and you've got the ultimate packing conundrum. After spending two weeks in Tassie and experiencing everything from campervan cook-ups to waterfront dining, I narrowed down the key pieces for tackling any Tasmanian travel experience.

Waterfront Accommodation Hobart

02 Mar Visual Tour of Somerset on the Pier Hobart

Hobart is a location synonymous with the coastal lifestyle. Even if you've never visited you've most likely heard of Constitution Dock, the spot where Sydney to Hobart winners celebrate their race finish. It made sense then, for our first trip to Hobart, to seek out accommodation close to the waterfront. Somerset on the Pier goes one better by putting you right on the water. The set of serviced apartments occupies a 1930's building along Elizabeth Street Pier. It's proximity to the waterfront precincts and unique view of Sullivan's Cove stood out to me as a great spot to base our activities from. Location aside, there are other benefits to staying in a serviced apartment too, which I'll discuss below. Throw in some fresh seafood sold straight from the boat and you've got every ocean-lovers perfect location...

Four Seasons Lisbon Review

27 Feb Video Tour of the Breathtaking Four Seasons in Lisbon

I've been really excited about sharing this post with you since our visit to Portugal last year. Aside from the usual thrill I get from capturing a new destination, our visit to Lisbon had the added excitement of a video project at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz. This is a hotel that epitomises luxury and for us videographers, offers up beautiful shots around every corner. Having explored the lower part of town in the days prior, a visit to Four Seasons allowed us to enjoy the spoils of 5-star accommodation in the cosmopolitan part of town. In fact, we barely left the hotel at all in our two nights there. Instead, choosing to take in the sunset from the rooftop running track (yes, you read that right) and living the fluffy robe life. That said, it's time to experience the most opulent hotel in Lisbon for yourself…

Salt Living Beach Decor

31 Jan A Look Inside the Serene Salt Living Store

Coolangatta is the kind of place that takes you back to more carefree times. Those days when your only concern was what flavour ice cream to buy after a bike ride with your bestie. I used to holiday there as a kid and after returning recently was please to find the same relaxed attitude and active lifestyle. In Coolangatta you’ll find many stores centered around beach living, but none compare to this gem in The Strand. Salt Living by Jacinta Bishop is a carefully curated boutique that embodies the very essence of a coastal escape. It is a must-visit in Coolangatta for getting your fix of coastal decor and taking a little bit of the salty life home with you. After moving into a bigger location I was lucky enough to photograph the space to share with you...

Plaka Athens blogger guide

21 Jan Why Plaka is the Best Neighbourhood in Athens

When visiting the Greek Islands via mainland Athens you can't pass up the opportunity to explore the country's ancient history. Being one of the world's oldest cities, its landmarks like the Acropolis and Parthenon are some of the most recognisable in the world. We decided to spend 3 nights there before heading out to Santorini and did a lot of research into what neighbourhood was best for seeing all of the historic sites. We realised early on that we needed proximity to the Acropolis balanced with an authentic Greek experience...not easy when you're talking about a city that attracts over 3 million tourists a year! Enter, Plaka. This pretty neighbourhood, with its colourful cafes and gritty alleyways, is just a stone's throw from the center of Greek history. And as you'll see below, not the tourist trap you'd expect...
