Vegetarian Surfers Paradise Dining – Zambrero

  There are a couple of chains around the Gold Coast that do Mexican style food, of these, my pick is Zambrero.  No only is the food delicious but for every meal you buy, someone in need also gets a meal – its a win-win.  The sign in the store on Wednesday when I went, … Continue reading

Vegetarian Surfers Paradise Dining – Poké California

I was looking forward to sharing about a great little hidden gem in Surfers Paradise called Poké California, which opened in the Circle on Cavill mall a few months ago.  I guess I missed the boat though, when I went on Thursday it was busy! It’s still physically not in the best spot, near the Woolworths … Continue reading

Vegetarian Surfers Paradise Dining – PappaRich

For around the last 18 months I have been working in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.  I thought it might be fun to share a few of the more inexpensive vegetarian dining options that I pick for a quick, casual lunch. First up, one of my favourites and a fairly recent addition to the … Continue reading

Disney Cruise Line vs Royal Caribbean

Usually I’m one to fastidiously plan a trip months ahead of travel but with needing to use up the last of my leave before starting a new job on Monday (yikes!), an immediate plan was put in place.  Researched on Thursday, booked on Friday and travelled the following Wednesday. I initially looked at tours but … Continue reading

10 things I love about living on the Gold Coast

As I get to know my new home here on the Gold Coast, Australia, lets start with a few things I love about it. Winter – OMG, if this is winter, I’ll take it.  While we haven’t lived through a summer yet, which I understand is vile, these warm, sunny, 20C winter days are amazing! Bike … Continue reading

An atheist Christmas feast

Although we don’t celebrate Christmas, we did celebrate being on a work expense account.  Dear work, thank you for paying for this most of this delicious food while we are on call in Queenstown for the week 😉 From left to right, top to bottom – Fresh homegrown cherries which are one of the quintessential Christmas … Continue reading

Chocolate displays at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival Center

I’m not a huge fan of Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, which is practically unheard of, but as a non-drinking, vegetarian, there isn’t a lot on the menus that appeal.  Also with the drop in the NZ$, the cost is insane per dish. However that didn’t stop us enjoying the Ghirardelli chocolate displays in the Food … Continue reading

Pretentious food … or who gobbed on my meal?

I don’t get this whole “foam” food thing.  I’m not a fussy eater.  Heck, I’ll try anything that doesn’t have a deceased animal in it.  But when this dish showed up in front of me on our trip to San Francisco last month, it did take me back a second. On the menu, this was listed … Continue reading

Angel Island State Park – San Francisco, USA

On a previous trip to San Francisco I took a trip to Alcatraz.  This time, as part of our organised Adventures by Disney trip we got the opportunity to go to Angel Island.  The entire island is part of the California State Park system and access is via boat or ferry. I confess I didn’t know … Continue reading

M.Y.China – San Francisco, USA

One of our first group meals on our Adventures by Disney trip in San Francisco was at M.Y. China.  When they told us this restaurant was in the Westfield Mall, I instantly thought foodcourt.  I couldn’t have been more wrong! This is a fairly elegant restaurant on one of the upper floors of the Westfield … Continue reading

Wordless Wednesday – that sounds yummy…

Wordless Wednesday – Do these glasses make me look smarter?

Frankton dining – Queenstown, New Zealand

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been staying at a workmate’s place at Lake Hayes Estate for the two weeks I was based in Queenstown. If you are familiar with area, Lake Hayes is out of town past the airport, towards the turn off to Arrowtown and near Lake Hayes … who would … Continue reading

Floating Markets Gardens of Inle Lake, Myanmar

This is the final set of photos from Inle Lake.   The locals are mostly involved in fishing activities or agriculture as their means of living.  They create floating islands out of a weeds and water hyacinths which they then build up in layers.   On these they grow various produce. They stop these floating away by staking … Continue reading
