July In Greece And The Islands
July In Greece And The Islands
We just spent a little over two weeks in Greece and a couple of islands (Santorini and Folegandros). We and had a great time, got ripped off on a couple of occasions, learnt a few travel lessons ( we always seem to!) and found the people really friendly. We can’t speak Greek and found that most people we dealt with spoke fluent English…spoilt but so much easier! Finally, just a plug for Beat My Path. We booked all our accommodation and daytrips through the site, and it was seamless.
Value Eats & Drinks in Fortitude Valley & New Farm
Value Eats & Drinks in Fortitude Valley & New Farm
I’ve lived in New Farm for a couple of years, and we love going out, but don’t love high prices. So, if the high-priced magnificent restaurants are your thing, this blog won’t help you much! If you are staying close to the city, you’re likely to go to the River Bar, and then head up to the bars and restaurants at Howard’s Wharf. These places are great and are often crowded and expensive.
Brisbane: Things To Do For Little Kids
Brisbane: Things To Do For Little Kids
If you visit Brisbane with little kids there are some great things to do that, I think you’ll find great fun, and they are really cheap. While I’ve lived in Brisbane for nearly 30 years, in the last year I’ve been babysitting young grandkids (one and two years old) and have looked out for interesting and cheap things to do. Their attention span is not long so there has to variety!
Mooloolaba: A Great Family Holiday Destination For Kids
Mooloolaba: A Great Family Holiday Destination For Kids
We’ve been going to Mooloolaba for decades, but as cyclone Oma approached in late February 2019 we nearly cancelled our trip. I’m so happy that we decided to ahead and visit. No matter what your budget, and no matter what the weather, you're bound to have a great time. Sometimes just the two of us go, but this time there were nine of us and there was something for everyone, for the full five days that we stayed.
