June Gloom no more!

Winter may be here but it doesn’t mean we have to stay cooped up on the couch with a cozy blanket and hot chocolate (although I can’t deny that I’m doing this right now and am rather enjoying it!).

I really don’t enjoy Winter, but compared to the freezing temperatures I’ve experienced in Europe, we really don’t have much to complain about in Australia. And considering our scorching summers, I actually think some things are better left to our cooler months – like my weekend adventure on Puffing Billy.

This century-old steam train still runs its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook through the Dandenong Ranges.

I enjoyed a three-course luncheon while enjoying picturesque views of the Ranges and a stop off at Lake Emerald. There’s truly something calming about being by the lake with the sound of rain lightly falling onto your umbrella and autumn leaves crunching beneath your boots. My Equestrians gave me the perfect mix of comfort and style for negotiating puddles and muddy lakeside trails.

June gloom no more!

Hello 2014!

I haven’t had the chance to say it yet – so Happy New Year! Can you believe we are already more than a week into 2014? More importantly, how’s your list of new year’s resolutions going? Don’t worry, I’ve got mine too. But this year I’m pledging not be part of the 88% of people who admit they’ve failed to achieve their resolutions when the new year is rolling in. I’ll keep you updated on my progress. Oh, and don’t forget to tell me what your resolutions are!
