Pivot has been the word and action for many businesses during the Covid pandemic, including for freelancers who have had to adapt and look for opportunities outside of their usual fields. The lack of opportunity to travel within Australia, has been challenging but being open to any opportunity to use your skills is key.

Food Tourism – Yes Please

A favourite aspect of being on holidays for me is the eating out at cafes, restaurants and clubs, trying the food that someone else has prepared and cooked.

Windy with a Chance of Huge Swell.

surfing AustraliaThe wet, windy and wild weather we have been experiencing lately in South Australia has been whipping up some huge waves along the coastline and for as far as the eye can see. The white peaks and troughs of waves are visible to the horizon in fact. The conditions have reminded me of a trip we did to the east coast a while ago during winter where I saw the biggest surf I’ve ever seen in this country.
