Food tips for air travel – what to eat on the plane

I’m a bit of an oddball when I travel, and that’s OK with me. I’m the one who carries five notepads in her handbag, preferring to write than watch the in-flight entertainment; who Instagrams every meal, even a handful of activated nuts; and who takes her own food on board the aircraft, asking only for cutlery and a cup of hot water for her organic green tea bag.

Fresh, simple pop-up espresso bar and art exhibition

A visit to a pop-up art exhibition and espresso bar this morning really brightened my day. After hearing whispers earlier in the week of the entrepreneurial spirit of two friends who listened to their hearts and saw an opportunity to step closer to their dreams, I had to pop round for a sticky beak (and to taste the coffee)!

Eating out at Wollongong’s Lower East Cafe

Do fish and chips bore you – even when you’re by the sea? Well Sunday lunch at a beach city doesn’t have to be boring, not at Wollongong on the NSW south coast that’s for sure. Read more
