You know what it’s like, holidays and weekends are too short and when the weather is perfect there are so many ideas to pack into a short amount of time. I find that taking photos can challenge you to practice mindfulness and being in the moment, by noticing all the simple things in life that bring you joy and add a sense of calm.
Why have just one day of celebration when you can have a long weekend? Sounds like a great idea right? More and more we are finding that enjoying the simple things in life like time with family and friends and slowing down to enjoy the good times is high on our list of priorities. Not surprisingly then a way to combine all of this is by planning an event holiday.
The Lets Go Caravan and Camping Show has finished it’s run in Adelaide and now it ups and moves off to other states around Australia. I’d recommend going for a visit especially if you haven’t been to one for a while, the number of new vans and camper trailers is quite mind blowing. To be able to take a look inside so many new vans and campers on offer these days will leave you wowed. Whether you are in the market to buy or not it gives you a huge amount of information on prices, value for money and finishes you might like when the day comes that you are ready to invest. It really does all come down to where you are planning to go, what sort of road conditions you want your van to handle and personal preferences for interior layouts.
The ‘Let’s Go Caravan & Camping’ show is on now in Adelaide and you still have today and over the weekend to attend. It’s on at the Wayville Showgrounds just out of the city and is open from 10am – 5pm every day until Sunday 17th of February. The entry price of $17 for adults seems a bit steep but you will get your money’s worth in not having to traipse all over town to see everything caravan and camping. What I love about these shows is that you can see everything in one convenient location and do your comparisons when it comes to different makes and models of vans especially.
Take a drive through the Adelaide Hills region in South Australia, and you will soon notice sculptures of all shapes, sizes and styles popping up in public places. These eye catching works of art in chiselled stone have been crafted by master sculptors over the past few years during International Sculpture Symposiums held at The Cedars (once the home of Sir Hans Heysen, Australian landscape artist) near Hahndorf in the hills. The pieces were all created by the artists over the few weeks of the symposiums held in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
Sunset is one of my favourite times to take photos especially if there is a west facing beach involved. I love having people or objects silhouetted against fiery skies but sometimes the colours themselves are all you need.
