The roads we travel…

by Kate on September 8, 2014

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to disconnect from life for a while and reconnect with myself. A couple of months ago a post on my instagram feed popped up about a weekend yoga retreat being held by Emily, the founder of Travel Light Yoga. I clicked over to the website, had a brief […]


The week that was…

by Kate on May 26, 2013

On Thursday I arrived home after ten very full on days in Manhattan. That place never ceases to amaze me. It is so full of energy and from the moment you arrive, you get swept up in the frenetic pace of it all. I walked, ate, shopped, walked, ate, went to a few favourite places, […]

We have just come back from an idyllic holiday up on the NSW north coast. It was so great to hang with the family and we quickly settled into the routine of beach and pool swimming. For us, a holiday at the end of January is the perfect way to regroup, recover from Christmas and […]


The 2012 Big Apple Wrap Up

by Kate on May 20, 2012

We got home from New York last Sunday and I have hit the ground running, two kids will do that. New York never disappoints and as I have done most of the ‘touristy’ things on previous visits, I spent most of my time there, walking, shopping and eating – pure bliss. Anyway, we had a […]

We have escaped to the beach for a week.  My Mum and Dad have joined us. Victoria has a stunning coastline, rugged, lush and full of hidden surprises. Our daily visitor.

The Big Apple – Day 5

by Kate on July 30, 2010

I had no plans this morning so decided to catch a film and go for a stroll. Five minutes into my walk, I felt as if I had entered another world…the world of the Upper East Side. Things I noticed whilst on my walk. Some really bad face lifts Enough nannies to hold a nanny […]


The Big Apple – Day 4

by Kate on July 29, 2010

MoMA – utterly breathtaking. If you find yourself in New York, it’s a must visit. Pablo Picasso And without a doubt, my absolute favourite…‘The Starry Night’ by Vincent van Gogh. The ‘Wishing Tree’ by Yoko Ono, invites visitors to write a wish and hang it on the tree. These two made me smile.


The Big Apple – Day 3

by Kate on July 28, 2010

Dinner at Tamarind (recommend by Victoria) and it was probably the best Indian I have had outside London. I’ve been flying solo today and have covered some serious ground, my first stop was Purl Soho. The yarn section did not disappoint, a large variety and there were so many different colours. There wasn’t a huge […]


The Big Apple – Day 2

by Kate on July 27, 2010

Last night, we had a fantastic dinner at a British style gastropub called The Spotted Pig. The food was seasonal, fresh and I highly recommend the ‘Salty Dog’ cocktail. We have had another day of wandering, caught the train down to the World Trade Centre sight and walked up to Soho for lunch. Sarah said […]
