Then life got in the way and I never really had enough money or I created other responsibilities that would affect my ability to travel. But really, what it came down to was me making […]

5 Places To Cool Off In Cairns, Tropical North Queensland!

About 2 years ago I got back from living in Tropical North Queensland. I spent the better part of five years living in Cairns and I absolutely loved it. I loved the lifestyle, the social life, diving on the reef, exploring the rainforests, and hunting for the next swimming hole. I’m even going to go as far as saying that I loved the weather! Crazy I know, but you really do acclimatise and end up cold in winter. If you ever get the chance to visit Tropical North Queensland then Cairns is the place to visit.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin So I’ve grown up in a family that loves the Cricket, Rugby Union, AFL & Tennis. Every summer the cricket or tennis is on the TV and every winter would be the footy.

Candied Walnut & Sweet Potato Salad

A delicious salad for any dining table
