059 - COVID life in Chicago | Heather Reed

May 20, 2020

COVID-19 has shut down the travel industry. For a while the thought of travel made me sad and I wasn't able to talk about it. I wanted to know how people around the world were handling the shut down. I invited a very dear friend of mine, Heather Reed who lives in Chicago in the United States to join me. 

We talk about the differences between how Australia and United States have dealt with the virus. The rules and regulations each Country has and how personally Heather is dealing with the isolation. We discuss the health care system in both Countries in detail. I also ask Heather for a recipe of something she has been cooking during her time in isolation.

055 - Hunter Valley Wine Region

055 - Hunter Valley Wine Region

February 26, 2020

This episode I visit the Hunter Valley Wine region. If you are a wine lover like I am, then this episode is for you. 

The Hunter Valley wine region is about 120km (75mi) North of Sydney, NSW, Australia. It is the oldest wine region in Australia with around 150 Cellar doors to visit. Knowing this I had no idea where to start or which ones to visit. We had one day in the area and we wanted to visit as many as possible without the stress of driving.

I found the iHop Hunter Valley hop on and hop off bus tour. WOW, what a fabulous way to visit the Hunter. I go into detail about how the booking process works, what the tour entails and which cellar doors we visited. I rate every Cellar door and talk about some of the amazing information I received from some very knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful part of Australia.
