I’ve always had an interest in space and astronomy, there is something I find quite interesting in seeing and understanding something that is bigger and older than us all.

This year I was unsure what to do for Ash’s birthday, I was searching and searching for an experience to do. Finally, I found it! A cooking class, but this was no ordinary cooking class; it was one run by refugees. The company was Free to Feed and is a non-for-profit run here in Melbourne to help set up refugees and asylum seekers with jobs.
There were choices about what type of cuisine you preferred, so as we eat a lot of curries I picked Sri Lankan.
The evening was run by a refugee named Niro who travelled for 3 weeks on a boat, ended up in detention centres on Christmas Island & in Melbourne to finally be here taking this class. His story was incredible but his happiness and positivity was something amazing.
He taught us to cook a few meals from Sri Lanka (his own recipes), the best part was at the end of the night we all sat down and shared the meal.
is coming has come! Normally we’ll head to Mt Donna Buang, but this time we want to take Poppy (our Pug). So after a bit of googling, I discovered Mount Maraget (half way between Marysville & Buxton (maps link), this hidden gem is amazing.
We found an amazing new place to take Poppy for a walk today. I was looking for somewhere closeby (it’s been a weekend full of driving). Fortunately I found Warrandyte River reserve and it’s only 10 minutes from home!
For the last 8 months or so I’ve been studying Astronomy at Swinburne. As luck would have it there is a volunteer run observatory here in Melbourne at Mount Burnett.
Yes! Finally, a cafe which is for you and your puppy! It only opened in August. Located in Collingwood, this cute place is perfect.
There is food for your dog – Ice Creams, Dogcino’s, raw treats, dog popcorn – the list goes on! Continue reading “Dog House Cafe Collingwood”
Today we had another cool little adventure, after going into school to sort some things for Term 4. We went for a road trip to Sylvan and Olinda Forest.
It’s a beautiful drive there and only around 1hour from the CBD, making it perfect for a day trip.
