    My day at Sydney Zoo

    Just over a week ago my partner and I headed down to Sydney to visit family over the Easter holiday. We packed up the car with the dog and bird and drove down. I was thinking of things to do and decided we should check out the new zoo. It’s not exactly new, it was opened in 2019, but it’s new to me. Sydney Zoo is only around 15 minutes away from my parent’s place so seemed the perfect place. First up, parking, whilst free, was horrible. That being said, we did go on the Saturday of the Easter long weekend. We pre-booked our tickets but spent nearly 30 minutes…

    Fun at Australia Zoo #xlinQLD

    My choice of things to do when in Queensland was, of course, Australia Zoo. If there is a place I can go and see animals, I’ll be there. When I was young I was a HUGE fan of Steve Irwin and I think that is partially why I just love and adore all animals.  My Mum surprised me with a Private Guided Tour, which was amazing! Firstly, my Dad is unwell, so having a golf cart thingy really helped. The Zoo is situated over 100 acres! Secondly, our guide Sandi was amazing and knew all the places to be! The Cheetahs aren’t on display but are available for an animal…

    My day at Sea World Australia #xlinqld

    If you follow me on social media you’d know that I recently took a trip to Surfers Paradise (Queensland) for a week away with family. There has been a lot going on in my life at the moment especially when it comes to my family. My Mum organised for herself, my Dad, my sister and I, to have a week away, spend some time bonding and creating memories. We all got to pick a ‘thing’ we wanted to do and my sister Larnies choice was Sea World. Larnie had never actually seen a dolphin before! Mind blown! She was lucky and got to have her photo taken with a dolphin!…

    Event – 2018 Anatolian Easter Festival

    I’m a little all over the shop with updating, I know, sorry!¬† I had decided to wait to do a post on the Anatolian show until I had finished the video, but that was delayed. Firstly a few of the files were somehow corrupt, then my video editor kept crashing. I ended up purchasing a new video editor and then had to learn it all! I probably spent 20+ hours on the video and tbh, it’s pretty crappy, but oh well. You can view it at the end of the post. If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know i’m a dog person. Well, a dog person who owns cats.…

    Event – Sydney Royal Easter Show

    One of the reasons why I headed to Sydney last month was to go to the Sydney Royal Easter Show. I adore it, I’ve been going for as long as I remember. I love looking at all the animals and displays. I went with my Mum and we spent the day exploring. We walked nearly 12km and didn’t see everything, we didn’t even venture anywhere near rides! The Easter Show is held by the Royal Agriculture¬†Society and started in 1823!¬†Revenue generated by the show allows the RAS to invest in agricultural programs, competitions, education, youth and rural NSW. It’s so fascinating walking around and seeing all the animals and food…
