Travel is just another excuse to try different food – yum! Plus I’ll tell you a bit about my destination highlights.  Note – due to having toddler twins we don’t travel nearly as much as we did.  Having said that, whenever we do travel you can rest assured I’ll be eating up a storm!

Byron Bay

A one night parents getaway to Byron Bay in Septemer 2013, great food, an awesome hotel and a relaxing break.


We took a short trip to Yamba in July 2012 and enjoyed a couple of great local places.
