Hiking to Barrenjoey Lighthouse, Palm Beach

Hiking to Barrenjoey Lighthouse, Palm Beach

Having lived in Sydney for over a year, and since aunty Kerry was visiting us from Perth, we decided that it was high time to hike up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse at Palm Beach. After a leisurely 30 minute drive, I strapped Katie onto my back, and we began our slow walk on soft beach sand …

Shredding the Slopes at Heavenly

During a recent trip to Silicon Valley a colleague and I decided to sneak away for the weekend, and headed for the ski slopes surrounding Lake Tahoe.

Since I was sadly going to be in Seattle for Katie’s 2nd birthday, we decided to celebrate it early, together with Sharon’s birthday, by having a family snow adventure in the mountains.

Looking for something to do on that odd raining day in Durban? I’d highly recommend the Wet Rock Indoor Water Park, complete with a lazy river ride, kiddies and adult slides, and a fantastic cafe. Check out some of the fun I had there with my family.

India! A Sensory Extravaganza!

India! A Sensory Extravaganza!

India is a sensory extravaganza! There’s no other reasonable way to describe it. The only caveat to that statement is that during my stay I only managed to spend time in two cities, Pune and New Delhi, and sadly never got to experience rural India. Would a change in my itinerary have changed my views? Probably …

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2016

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2016

Despite living just minutes from Kloof Gorge (Krantzkloof Nature Reserve) it’s an area I haven’t explored (let alone run through) since I was a child. So when I saw this year’s 3 Falls Trail Run in the race calendar I knew it was an event I could not miss. Sadly however, by the time I got …
