      We are working here and glad we are not paying for a room here.

      Karin is German and has been running the B & B for too long. She has just accepted an offer on the property which is a good thing.

      She is trying to run the place on her own using backpackers for cheap labour. We feel sorry for her as her partner is back home ill, so she's got a lot going on.

      Everything about the place is dated. The beds, mattresses, pillows, bedding, towels. It's a beautiful property....but its unloved.

      Breakfast consists of cereal, bread, juice (measured) and tea/coffee.

      95% of the guests we have spoken to her feel that the price is way too much and that Karin can be rude.

      Might be best to stay elsewhere.

At Coolum Beach at the moment on the way up to Noosa so if there is any surf I will be going in to splash about on the new board I bought yesterday.... ...

      5 am wake up, 545 departure. One of the differences with staying in an apartment is there is no-one to 'look after' you so I was slightly worried that the private taxi transfer that I had booked wouldn't arrive and /or would be late. You can't hail a taxi in Italy, it's illegal and when you ring to request one you pay from the time of the phone call - which would be ok if you knew at 5 am with a checkin deadline what time they would get there etc etc so a private taxi was the only ...

      ... My ute is in airport parking so I offered him a lift to the hotel, he said thanks I`ll take it. We walked out of the airport to the airport parking and I said to the guy working there I was the owner of the red Patrol wagon, he gave me the keys and told me where it was parked. Me and Leigh found the Patrol and I opened the back doors and put the luggage in the back then shut the doors. I ...

      After the Northland we set off on the long journey south. First stop of significance was Matamata, where Rob launched into Lord of the Rings geekery by dragging Emma on a tour of the Hobbiton set. Even Emma, who had never seen the films, thought this was brilliant. The set was built from permanent materials when they made The Hobbit and the farm who own the site now run it as a full time attraction, employing a ...
