It’s funny how things work out. Ctizenship was never my goal. I moved to Australia temporarily with my Australian partner. The plan was to spend a year travelling around Australia, supporting ourselves with a bit of casual work as we went. When my partner took a permanent position that required relocating to the other end of the country fast, our plan had to change. Here’s how I became an Australian citizen.
I feel really lucky to have been able to spend some time exploring Provence. I think it to be one of the most beautiful areas of France, if not the world. From tiny villages filled with mystery, to sophisticated settlements offering incredible backdrops while you sample the local produce, there is definitely a village for every taste. Here are my five favourite villages in Provence.
Food and drink is at the very heart of eastern Mediterranean culture, and nowhere is this more in evidence than in Cyprus. While you may think Greek food and Greek Cypriot food are pretty much one and the same, Cypriots will always point out that it’s the subtle changes that make all the difference in their dishes.
So what’s on the menu?
Experience the Paris Christmas markets and no other market will ever match up. Parisians take markets very seriously, and the city’s Christmas markets are no different. No matter what you’re looking for, be it fresh food, regional produce, Christmas food, mulled wine, cheese, crafts, jewellery, clothing, Christmas decorations or gifts, you will be spoilt for choice at the Paris Christmas markets.
If you are passionate about waterfalls, a visit to the Atherton Tablelands, in the Cairns hinterland, will leave you spoilt for choice. There are several waterfalls, some are wide rivers flowing over low falls, while others cascade from vast heights surrounded by rainforest foliage. Many are tucked away and feel like well kept secrets, while others are in bright open locations and even have facilities. You could say there’s a waterfall for everyone!
