Hi! I'm Miriam - the mum/partner/writer/photographer/social media posting person/editor/cook/destination planner/website designer and builder ... I think you get the idea! I love so many things ... I love adventuring, traveling, exploring ... I love the feeling of the sun on my skin; lying in crystal clear tropical waters surrounded by palm trees. I love reading, writing, cooking, dancing, doing puzzles (strange, I know!). I love taking our jet ski out and pulling up on secluded beaches. I love training at the gym and teaching fitness classes. I love all things healthy! I love being alone and I love being with friends ... and I really, really love my family! 🙂

We loved our stay at Fressingfield! We knew it was going to be great from the minute the host, Wayne, phoned us to make sure we would be arriving at a time when he would be there to show us to our campsite. We arrived right on 1:00 and Wayne met us at the front...

‘Yes mum. I’ve rinsed my feet in the bucket. YES! I’ve wiped them on the towel too.’ I shook my head, laughing a little as I walked inside.
