In my opinion, the humble diner is an iconic part of US culture. So, I think that on any trip to the country you should try to visit at least one – and in New York there are some real gems. The lowdown on diners First of all, I’d like to just talk about how diners are different from other eateries. Over the years, the classic US diner has become ingrained in the nation’s culture, known primarily for extensive menus, [...]
About Sam (Food Travel Bliss)
Tonight at 9.57pm Australia will have a population of 23 million people. Fact. This has been calculated by the Australian Beurau of Statistics. The number crunchers have come to this conclusion by looking at the average number of expected births, deaths and people migrating (incoming residents minus outgoing) each year. What’s even cooler is that based on current population growth hot spots, birth statistics and name trends it can be generally predicted that the 23 millionth person born will be a boy [...]
We loved the rainbow crossing that Sydney put up in the heart of Oxford Street for the Mardi Gras, and we were glad we got to check it out in person before the council decided to rip it up in the dead of the night.
I always thought that Venice was only a city for the old, rich and in love. But I have come to think I was wrong. Or perhaps it is just because I am in love. Either way, the city that refuses to sink has slowly made it’s way to the top of my travel list and I am itching to get there. So why do I want to go? The easy answer in one word? Gondolas. The long answer in more [...]
Welcome! Couch Talk is where we sit down to have a friendly chit chat with some cool people from the world of travel blogging. This week we are talking to Katie from Katie Going Global who has a huge obsession with the former soviet states which makes her blog one of our all time favs! 1. What floats your boat – solo, couple, a mate or group travel? If I was coupled up, I would say couples travel…but since I’m not, [...]
I have always wanted to try abalone. I mean why not? It is supposed to be a delicacy and highly sought after, so it has got to be good right? Wrong. Recently when we were in Korea (where we ate quite a number of strange things) we sat down to lunch and heard that abalone was on the cards and I thought you beauty, I am finally going to get to try them! After the table is laid with all the [...]
One of the most appealing reasons to go on holiday for me is being able to sample lots of exciting, delicious dishes while I’m away. And Antigua is a great destination to visit for foodies like me, with all the scents and flavours of Caribbean food being almost as much of a reason to visit as its turquoise seas and white sandy beaches! • Favourite recipes If you’re not sure what Caribbean food is, think jerk chicken and rice and peas. [...]
Getting the goss on Couch Talk Welcome to Couch Talk, where we sit down to have a friendly chit chat with some cool people from the world of travel blogging. This week we are talking to Skott and Shawna from Get up & Globe. Recently married, they left Saskatchewan in June 2011 on what can only be described as the ultimate honeymoon to explore this incredible globe! 1. What floats your boat – solo, couple, a mate or group travel? We have [...]
Hello and welcome back (why thank you). It has been a little while since we have been active in the bloggersphere (I got a bit of altitude sickness and whip lash trying to keep up with everything I wanted to do). But we are now happy to be back, we have been working hard on some side projects and have managed to take our income earnt from our blog and other online work from, well, zero to a few hundred [...]
At the moment I am thinking about New Zealand. It is so close to Australia. I really should have been there more. I like to get all jealous that in Europe you can be in a new country within a few hours on a train or for 15 euros on a cheap airline. And while I might not be able to get to New Zealand for 15 euros, it is still relatively close and not that expensive. [...]
It has been a little while since out last update. There has been a lot going on, but maybe that is a story for another day. So, what is new? Well, even though we have not been writing, it does not mean that we have not been reading. Over the last month we have read some great stories about what people are up to around the world and we want to share some of our favourites: Charlie and Pamela are two (crazy?) [...]
