Stay at Australia’s Most Haunted Hotel

I’m a total scaredy cat when it comes to anything even slightly haunted. I won’t watch scary movies, I have to sleep with the light on if I feel spooked by anything and I’m basically a big baby when it comes to any kind of ghostly goings on…so you can imagine how I felt when […]

Best and worst luggage for travel

Best and worst luggage for travel

Luggage is something that, in our opinion, can make or break a trip. We’ve both travelled the world extensively and have definitely done our fair share of lugging a huge backpack around.
