The other weekend, Mr M had convinced me to go on an overnight bush walk. However, inclement weather meant that our chosen spot was a little flooded and our walking plans were downgraded to a single day of hiking. I will admit this here I’m not a big hiker. I don’t really enjoy it, I […]

Early last year, after hearing positive reports, Provenance in Beechworth was placed on our mutual wish list of ‘must visit’ restaurants. At that time, Saskia was in the final stages of PhD hell, and we decided that we would visit when the thesis was all said and done. Our trip to Beechworth was to be […]

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary, Mr M and I decided to head to the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld. Being the slightly anally retentive person that I am, I booked our get away 6 months in advance. This ended up being quite fortuitous, as the Royal Mail later won The Age’s Restaurant of the Year and […]

My brother L lives overseas and recently came back to Melbourne for a mate’s wedding. I took a day off work to hang out with him (yep, ‘quality time’) and for some reason he decided he wanted to head out to ‘the country’ and see some scenery. This was a boon to me as a […]

On the way to Taggerty we stopped in at Innocent Bystanderin Healesville for dinner. Innocent Bystander is a restaurant/winery/cellar door for Innocent Bystander and Giant Steps.

I spent a fair chunk of my childhood in the little coastal town of Wye River, on the Great Ocean Road about 30 minutes past Lorne. Back in the day it was a sleepy hollow, with a run-down little store, the Rookery Nook hotel (replete with sticky carpet and arcade games) and the pinball parlour […]

Over the Australia day long weekend we headed down to Lorne for a few days. We decided to go on a little detour on our drive to Lorne and head to Loam, Drysdale which recently had a rave review from Larissa Dubecki in The Age. Now, I will admit that I have been less positive […]

For our recent wedding, Mr M and I received a gift voucher to Ten Minutes by Tractor (referred to as 10X) from our lovely friends A & C. In between the madness of December catch ups we managed to find a free Sunday and headed out to Red Hill on an absolutely glorious day for […]

I remember the first time I went berry picking. I was about 7 years old at the time and some family friends owned a blueberry farm (well, it wasn’t a farm, probably more accurately it was an acre or so of blueberry bushes at the bottom of their land). I was terribly excited to go […]
