Italian-Inspired Tuna & Bean Salad
The other day we were in a little grocery store here in New Zealand, looking for some quick supplies to make lunch in our campervan. Michael scanned their modest cheese section hoping to find something beyond the standard Cheddar and Edam options, to add a bit of interest to our sandwiches. He found Gruyere, an ...

Bell Tents
I snuck off to a music festival in the UK last weekend, leaving my two little lovelies behind. It was great -- good music, great company and one of my top favourite things to do: camping!

Camping: The good, the bad and the ugly
We’ve just completed our 30-day drive up the eastern coast of Australia in a campervan, driving more than 4,000 km from Sydney to Cairns with a few detours in between. We did and saw some amazing things, but I think it’s safe to say that we’re happy our camping days are behind us! I’m still ...
