Mokoan Rest Stop Art works (Victoria Australia)

Mokoan Rest Stop is very familiar to me. Its a great place to stop and stretch the legs, toilet stop and walk the dogs. Its roughly 1 hour 15 mins or 120 km from Albury heading to Melbourne or Shepparton. These stops are Northbound and Southbound on the Hume Freeway. The Hume Freeway takes you …

Mooving Art of Shepparton

We have all seen art on building walls, laneways, Silo art (will do a post on this at a later date). Art on cows you say? Mooving Art to boot? Scattered around the Greater Shepparton area are 3D fiberglass bovines - cows . I can remember over 4 years ago when living in Shepparton I …

Glenrowan, Victoria – The Last stand of The Kelly Gang

Last week I watched the movie Ned Kelly with Heath Ledger. It was filmed in 2003. One of several made. Of course being an Australian I think I like this one the best. Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones also played Ned Kelly but to me that was definitely a bad choice. Anyway it got …

Nagambie Victoria – Australia

As there is no overseas travel out of Australia at the moment I thought I would share some wonderful places here in Australia. Perhaps once travel is allowed you may want to visit these spots. I have also neglected the blog lately due to moving, Christmas and New Year. Its been hectic. Life is now …

Where have we been?

This year has certainly thrown everyone huge curve balls. We 3 sisters were supposed to have travelled to Europe this year. Prague, Budapest, Cesky Kromlov....sigh then a cruise on the Baltic. Here in Australia travel was banned, we couldn't even go to another state. In Victoria we had one of the longest lockdowns. Virtually from …

Peninsula Hot Springs

Peninsula Hot Springs I have been living down on the Mornington Peninsula for over 3 years yet I have never visited the Hot Springs. This year has been crazy so as our lockdown started to open up I decided I would go and see what I had been missing out on. I had seen many …

Cologne – Köln Germany

Cologne was our next town to visit  back in 2016. We had a choice to either stay on the ship and cruise from Bonn to Cologne or take a coach to Cologne and do a tour of the Perfume Factory or a self tour. We chose to do the self tour of Cologne. Our coach …

Bonn, Beethoven and burning books!

3/8/16 Our ship docked in Bonn where we would go on a walking tour of the city. Our walk saw us go through the Hofgarten park and into the town square. I love how most European towns and cities all have a Town Square. It was still raining so you still had to be careful …

Cochem Castle Germany

4 years ago on our River Cruise our ship docked in Cochem. We were split into two groups and ours went to a wine tasting. Wine at nine does me fine! Castle at twelfths lol no rhyme sorry. It had been pouring with rain all morning. Our bus was allowed to park a bit closer …

Heidelberg Castle – Does Lightning really strike twice?

Four years ago the 3 sisters were on a Rhine cruise with APT and one of our tours was a visit to the Heidelberg Castle in Germany. Our ship was moored at Mainz and we took a bus to this magnificent place. Heidelberg Castle is one of Germany's most visited tourist spots. The castle is …
