Honeymoon Across the Globe: Melbourne Food Heaven

My blogs are currently being posted on a 2-month delay. Please remember that Australia is still experiencing a devastating bush fire season as a direct result of climate change. Re-posting this article with links for local relief organizations to donate to, if you can! We woke up to the faint sound of birds. I was … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Melbourne Food Heaven

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Shipwreck Coast, Port Fairy & Australian Country

Before I share this post, I want to clarify that I am blogging at a nearly 2-month delay. Since our departure from Australia, they have experienced a devastating wildfire season. 14 million acres of land has been burned (7x the acres burned in the 2018 California wildfires) and almost half a billion animals have been … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Shipwreck Coast, Port Fairy & Australian Country

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Wallabies, Snakes & 12 Apostles Sunsets

The next morning, we decided to brave another beautiful lookout in town that sat at the top of a *ahem* hill equally as steep as yesterday’s. We were better prepared this time and the groans of the car were less of a shock. Once again, it was worth the sweeping views from high above tiny … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Wallabies, Snakes & 12 Apostles Sunsets

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Great Ocean Road Koalas and “The Top Pub”

The next day we started off at the infamous breakfast buffet that our hotel dude had raved about. It did, in fact, have the exact styles of milk and brands of cereal that he rattled off like a computer. The woman at the front desk during checkout gave us some tips for our drive ahead, … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Great Ocean Road Koalas and “The Top Pub”

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Bellarine Wine Tour & Great Ocean Road

Honeymooning with Sara and Katie is never as simple as relaxing on a beach. After four days of lackadaisical living in Fiji and sipping sunlight through our pores it was time to hop onto another airplane. The rest of our trip would be centered on driving the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Port Fairy … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Bellarine Wine Tour & Great Ocean Road

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Sunsets & a Kava Ceremony

We woke up by 7am with little effort. Jetlag or island time? The resort goes quiet so early at night and you just roll with it. We dug into a buffet breakfast and then went to grab a 2-person kayak before the rest of the crowd descended upon them. There was a small island not … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Sunsets & a Kava Ceremony

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Waters & Island Hopping

There are no words that can adequately describe the feeling after your wedding when you are no longer “planning” anything. Your brain hangs in list-making limbo while you polish off the reception wine that you bought a case too much of. I felt so content in those days afterward but also desperately needed to hibernate. … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Waters & Island Hopping

North Wales: Portmeirion to Shrewsbury

We woke up in Tremadog to a crisp, rainy morning. The air smelled a little like being by a boat dock, which was strange since we were nowhere close to anything like that. It had that strangely comforting salty, seaside freshness. We hit the road again with a destination of Shrewsbury, just back over the … Continue reading North Wales: Portmeirion to Shrewsbury

North Wales: Tremadog, Snowdonia & Welsh Highland Railway

The next day, it was time to hit the road again. We bid goodbye to beautiful Llandudno on a sunny morning and before we knew it, we were back in the quiet countryside with little roads and lots of sheep. Before landing in Tremadog for the night (a "suburb" of the village of Portmadog, two … Continue reading North Wales: Tremadog, Snowdonia & Welsh Highland Railway

North Wales: Conwy Castle & Afternoon Tea

We were less ambitious at breakfast the next morning. I knew I couldn't face another plate of food that spanned the width of my stomach, so I stuck to porridge and fresh fruit. The addition of 3 slices of fruit convinced me that every pint of beer consumed thus far was suddenly justifiable. Balanced diets … Continue reading North Wales: Conwy Castle & Afternoon Tea
