Athens – Travel Diary – Pente

 Whilst I sit here working from home on a Saturday, I feel extremely nostalgic looking at these photos. nos·tal·gia [no-stal-juh] noun 1. a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home or homeland, or to one’s family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time: a nostalgia for his college days. 2. something that elicits or displays nostalgia. I was in Athens just five months ago, but it feels like an age ago. It has been a whirlwind beginning to 2014, but I can’t complain, life in the fast lane is a […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Tessera

 This here is my favourite blog post from the Athens collection. Each of the photos depict the things I love about the city. Although grimy and dirty in areas (especially since the economic crisis), the capital city still has its own personality and uniqueness. We spent a lot of our days walking around Monistiraki, Thiseio , Plaka, […]

Rustic Pearl – Surry Hills

Monday .. you have come and gone. Thank goodness! I always have a bout of the monday blues, reminiscing and desperately wishing for the weekend to come back again. I had an extremely pleasant food filled two days, with some of the highlights being dinner at the Victoria Room in Darlinghurst, and a night of […]

Sardelles – Gazi, Athens

 Good morning on this chilly Saturday. Wow winter surely feels to be with us today, 16 degrees! Summer please come back. To get everyone excited about their weekend eating, I thought I should share some Greek food love with Sardelles (Greek word for Sardine), a restaurant/take away bar in the Gazi district of Athens. Greek […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Tria

Kalispera! It’s time to roll out these remaining European posts. This is my third photo diary from Athens and explores two of the main tourist attractions in the city; Lycabettus Hill and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. The majority of sites in Athens are within walking distance, which makes it easy to get around during […]

Thirty Eight Chairs – South Yarra | Melbourne

Apologies for my absence in postings over the past two weeks. I was lucky enough to have the three days off between Easter and ANZAC day and have been spoiled with a ten day holiday from work. As a last minute decision we booked tickets to Melbourne, arriving early on Monday morning and returning late […]

Jamie’s Italian – Sydney CBD

Tonight I have a quick little foodie post to tantalise your tastebuds and get you excited for the Easter Feaster this weekend. A few Sunday’s back, the boy and I visited Jamie’s for Sunday lunch, Italian style. This is my third time eating here and fortunately I had my camera on me to finally capture […]

Tzitzikas kai Mermigas – Athens

Where to eat in Athens? The city is full of restaurants offering all of the best dishes in Greek cuisine. Me being the planning freak that I am, tried reading every possible article and blog post that reviewed some of the current favourites. Tzitzikas and Mermigas was one of those places. Located just near Syntagma […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Duo

Following on from a post that I did a few weeks ago now (which you can have a look at here), today I share a collection of photos from our second stint in Athens over the New Year. Athens city is a walkable city for many of the main attractions, but if you want to explore […]

Patra – Travel Diary – Duo

Kalispera & happy Wednesday/hump day. The winter memories of Christmas in Europe really shine through in this post as we were in Patra for the days leading up to and after Christmas day. The centre of the city comes to life with Plateia Vasileos Georgiou (central square) lit up with christmas lights and larger then […]

Bloodwood – Newtown

To bring the weekend in with style, our night took us to Bloodwood in Newtown, a restaurant that I have wanted to visit for quite some time (it’s on the Bucket List). After seeing that they were appearing at the Taste Food Festival this weekend, I thought it was better to get in and taste […]

Da Orazio Pizza + Porchetta – Bondi Beach

Ciao ciao. I always sleep so peacefully on a Thursday night knowing that the weekend is just around the corner. It’s so close I can almost taste it….literally! This weekends plans are primarily food related, as per usual. Tomorrow night Newtown is on the agenda, as I’ve been meaning to visit Bloodwood after hearing too […]
