La La Falls

At the moment I’ve been sick with a bug I picked up, so on days like these I like to rug up and head into nature.

Today I went to La La falls in Yarra State forest. Checkout my short video and pictures below about it!

90-Mile Stars

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. I recently finished a Post Grad certificate in astronomy for the purpose of just extending my own knowledge. Continue reading “90-Mile Stars”

Free to Feed

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.

The pictures below speak for themselves. If you interested checked out their website and facebook page.

Snow Day out Mount Margaret, Buxton

Winter 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.

Road Trip to Adelaide

What better thing to do on a long weekend than a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. It was nice to be able to get away for a small break and see some new scenery.

We left Melbourne after work and proceeded towards Horsham, which was to be our destination for the night. The following morning we left bright and early in the fog (that reminded me of silent hill) with our destination as Hahndorf for lunch.
