If you’re anything like me, travel is a true passion – something you do as much of as you can. So when I had kids, I really wanted to pass that love of travel on to them – to take them to places I had visited (and loved) and discover new ones together. But you …

You might have heard some nonsense from my colleague, Zack, who sits on my left, about how people who prefer window seats are “Champions of the Air” (pfft! Yeah, right).

But really it’s time to craft that perfect out-of-office message to make your colleagues, business partners and workmates laugh, and – most importantly – make them jealous of your holiday plans. …

Bali? Why would I go to Bali? Sure, it’s gorgeous, with amazing beaches, markets, and cultural experiences. But with all the partying, binge drinking and spot-you-from-a-mile-away Aussies, I could just go to the Gold Coast, right? These were just a few of the thoughts I had when my partner suggested that he and I go …

Some travel experiences are so quintessentially Australian you’ll only find them here. How many have you had? 1. BYO restaurants BYO is a time-honoured tradition in Australia, but the rest of the world has yet to catch on to our genius. Free BYO remains the holy grail, but we’re okay with ‘corkage’ fees – within …
