Its coming up 1.5 years since Martin & Loraine from Pandemonium Estate opened their cellar door in the Swan Valley. They’re still going strong, and are just as lovely & welcoming as the first time I met them, along with still making fantastic wines! Read about my initial Pandemonium experience […]

Vintage in the Valley – Shiraz Launch at Pandemonium Estate


France. It invokes thoughts of food, wine, the beautiful countryside & vineyards, the busy, elegant city of Paris, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and so much more. I’ve wanted to go to France for as long as I can remember, and during our 3 month trip we spent a quarter […]

Paris, City of Light



For our second day in Cairo, we had to see the pyramids. We had booked a private tour for two prior to leaving Australia with Egypt Day Tours for $120USD. We were contacted us the night before to confirm our accommodation and pick up, and Mimmo, our tour guide, was waiting […]

And we’re off! First Stop, Cairo, Egypt – Part ...


Great wine, great food & great company… definitely the best way to start a Saturday morning!  I was lucky enough to do exactly that this weekend at Sittella Winery in the Swan Valley. Sittella was started by Simon & Maaike Burns back in 1998, after buying the land in the […]

Harvest at Sittella Winery



When we first started planning the trip of a lifetime, we asked ourselves our ‘must visit’ spots to see. Hungry Husband has always had the Great Pyramids of Giza on his bucket list, so Cairo, Egypt was a logical location. I was not convinced at first, so we umm-ed and […]

And we’re off! First stop, Cairo, Egypt – Part ...


92 days of travel, 14 countries, 97 flight hours & countless bottles of wine… Its been 3 months since our last blog post, and 1 month since we arrived back from our around the world trip.  Its definitely been interesting settling back into every day life.  When we left Perth […]

Travel Around the World



We’ve now been travelling for one month. Its gone so fast, and its incredible what we’ve already seen and experienced. I’m slowly writing up notes on our travel so far, but here is a little taster of what we’ve seen, done & experienced. Cairo, Egypt – Such amazing history in […]

One month of Travel – Our trip so far!


It may have been noticed that we haven’t done all that much blogging recently.  Between 2 jobs, 2 dogs, a horse and a household (and thats just me!) I could say I haven’t found the time, but all of my spare computer time has been spent on research for our […]

Hungry for Wine goes Around the World!



Hungry husband and I are planning a bit of an epic holiday later on this year, so we’ve been on a bit of a budget this year so far. So when we finally headed out for a date night we wanted to make it something special. After having some great […]

Date Night at Duende, Leederville


Northbridge is so cool, filled with all these funky places. As an incredibly indecisive person, I can struggle to find somewhere to eat. Luckily, I know that if deciding gets a little to hard (Fridays can be difficult ok?!) I know I’ll always get a delicious meal at Bivouac Canteen […]
