Conquering Wank Mountain

The highlight of our stay this year in Garmisch-Partenkirchen came in the form of an unconquered mountain. Unconquered to me that is - Riley had scaled it twice before and I made it halfway up last year. The first time we tried to climb this mountain together, we made it as far as the grassy...

Partnach Gorge: Visitors Guide

Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm in German) is a must-see destination on a visit to Garmisch-Partenkirchen - you could even make it a day trip from Munich!

It exhibits Australia’s exciting goldrush history, and the effect that gold had on the town of Ballarat, where it’s situated. It first opened in 1970 and has since become an iconic attraction for the state of Victoria, attracting around... Continue Reading →

Camel Riding on Eastern Beach

I’m all about trying new things, especially if it involves riding interesting animals. So while staying in Geelong with a friend of mine, Jaime, we discovered a string of camels doing rides along Eastern Beach - and as Jaime and I are are both into horses, we agreed to go and check it out! The... Continue Reading →
