There were about 20 baby carriages lined up outside my gym this morning. Mondays is mothers’ day so I have become accustomed to seeing babies gurgling in bassinets while their yummy mummies exercise beside them.
Danes possibly do child rearing better than most and it is probably just nit picking to add that a government that needs to increase the birth rate enables this. Generous government benefits for new mothers include one year’s paid leave with...Read Full Post »

Actually, I lost more than my balance; I lost the ability to walk.
But I had better start at the beginning; in April; in Copenhagen.
Check-in when you arrive my husband emailed and make yourself comfortable until I get home from the office.
Don’t be upset by the size of our hotel apartment, he warned— but I was upset. Our apartment was one small room.
Excuse my bluntness, I said to the hotel manager, but you surely can...Read Full Post »

Spent a leisurely week in Bangkok enroute from home in Australia to home in Copenhagen. Would recommend the Siri Sathorn hotel because of its downtown location and spacious layout with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, efficient Internet and personal chef service for breakfast each morning. It was surprisingly difficult to find tailors specializing in women's clothing but found by chance a good dressmaker hidden behind some shop fronts just minutes from my hotel.
Best day was spent riding...

Spent a few days in Latvia to celebrate my birthday. Started with a drive in the countryside outside Riga to Malpils Manor for dinner. Jamie Oliver recommended it and we were not disappointed. Fillet of venison, followed by milk fed lamb and a couple of gorgeous de...Read Full Post »

Spending August in Volvic ( yes the same as the water which is produced where we are staying) plus 5 days in Paris then 5 days driving via the Alsace back to Paris for our flight to Boston.
Volvic is a village outside Clermont Ferrand and I chose it because I am hoping it will be cooler than the rest of France in August. It is an area popular for hiking and hang gliding so we are expecting to leave fitter. It is accessible to several wine areas and we will also spend a couple of days in...Read Full Post »

Perhaps not for everybody, but it rained mainly at night and sometimes late afternoon. Managed everything on the sightseeing list
Off season so great deals on hotels, food and no waiting or queues for sightseeing. We did Port Douglas, Atherton Tableland, Cairns, Dunk Island and coast. Recommend.
