Gold Drops Coffee and Tea

I am always on the lookout for my next cafe destination. I am falling hard for the Melbourne coffee and cafe culture and I mean to take it seriously. Some days I will just pop in at a neighborhood place and will be prepared to be surprised by it. Other days, I will do my…

Melbourne Cafe Culture :: Manchester Press

“The Australian cafe is a thing, and Melbourne has the best in the world.” To say that the coffee culture in Melbourne is huge would be an understatement. Here, coffee simply is the king. And I am on a personal journey to check out as many of these beautiful spots as possible. Melbourne cafes have…

Ballarat with Friends !

Hello friends! So the school just started again this week and isn’t that a glorious thing! πŸ˜‰ About time as well, i was running out of energy to plan some activity for the kids everyday.  As we didn’t go away for the winter break, we decided to do a couple of weekend trips during the…

Day trip to Daylesford

Sharing some photos from our daytrip to Daylesford last weekend. On our drive up there, we stopped among thick, sky-high redwood forests for a while and i couldnt imagine the great Australian outdoors to be any better than that. But ofcourse, i am madly mistaken as each new place in this country invokes this feeling of…

Charmed by Olinda and Sassafras in the Dandenong Ranges

The best plans in life are always the unplanned ones. Those with the minimal expectations and preparations.

Bondi Beach and more .. (Sydney Part II)

So I am back with another post from our weekend trip to Sydney, with some traveling (with kids) tips at the end as promised. We started our days each morning with a big, lavish breakfast each morning at the hotel. Since we have recently started renting places on Airbnb whenever we travel rather than staying…

A weekend in Sydney ..

Last weekend, we packed the car with a few clothes, lots of snacks, a couple of children books, our beach things, good music, plenty of patience, and took off on an 9 hour long journey to Sydney. It was a beautiful drive and it was definitely a highlight for me to be driving alongside uphill…

Beaching at the Brighton

I was craving for a trip to the ocean this weekend. To walk along the coast, feel the coarse sand between my toes, hear the waves roar and crash, watch the kids make sand castles and dip their toes (and head in Hamza’s case) in the water. Salt air was calling. So, on Saturday, after…

Life in the city :: Arcades edition

Funny story: today on my way back to the apartment from one of our strolls around the city, I was stopped by a middle aged local woman, who was apparently lost and asked me for directions to the Flinders Station. ME. Who is always pushing the stroller with one hand and catching up on google…
