    THE 10 MOST LIVEABLE CITIES IN THE WORLD IN 2021

    After skipping the 2020 edition because of the pandemic, The Economist global liveability index survey returned in 2021, ranking the best cities in the world to live in. Due to the restrictions imposed following the numerous Covid-19 waves, Vienna in Austria lost the 1st place obtained in 2019 and exited the top 10. For the same reason many European and Canadian cities that were part of the ranking over the years didn’t make the list, having to shut schools, restaurants and crowded events. NEW ZEALAND LEADS THE RANKING The survey proclaimed Auckland, in New Zealand, most liveable city in the world in 2021.In second position Osaka, in Japan, while Adelaide,…

    HIKE TO WINDIN FALLS, FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND’S TABLELANDS

    Windin Falls is a spectacular waterfall located within Wooroonooran National Park in Tropical North Queensland.It takes about two hours from Cairns, plus a 5-km-hike before uncovering it.Being not easy to reach makes it even more rewarding to get to. The feeling when you lean onto the edge of the waterfall overlooking the Wet Tropics Rainforest is unbeatable.An important aspect to keep in mind is the different flow of the water whether you are going during dry or wet season, i.e. a calm stream vs a powerful waterfall. UPDATE, MAY 2021 WINDIN FALLS ACCIDENT: unfortunately a hiker lost her life at Windin Falls yesterday. As she was reportedly visiting after heavy…

    WHAT TO SEE IN HOBART, THE CAPITAL OF TASMANIA

    Hobart is the capital of the insular state of Tasmania, in the southeast of Australia.It’s a young city like the rest of Australia, with little more than 200 years of history. Nevertheless its past as penal settlement and present as quiet harbour town make of Hobart a characteristic destination, different from Australian metropolis like Sydney and Melbourne.Thanks to its small dimension – Hobart counts some 200,000 inhabitants – it’s easy to move quickly from one place to the next to visit the surroundings in few days.We spent 4 days in Hobart during our recent 2-week roadtrip in Tasmania, which you can read about here. Here’s what to see in Hobart, both…

    TASMANIA 2-WEEK ITINERARY GUIDE

    Tasmania, nicknamed Tassie, is an island south of Australia, separated from the mainland by the 240 km of the Bass strait. Despite being the 26th biggest island in the world, Tasmania is Australia’s smallest state (since the ACT is technically a territory), counting a little over 500,000 inhabitants. It takes roughly 3 hours to drive coast to coast, both in a north to south or west to east direction. The capital Hobart is well connected to mainland Australia with daily flights to and from the biggest cities. Although the most adventurous way to reach Tassie is definitely by ship. We couldn’t miss the sailing aboard the Spirit of Tasmania ferry,…
