If your dream of escaping to the outback included a big tree, with a guy playing a tune and a refreshing ale, then you must visit Matsos This is my second time and everything is splendid!

The Duke Hobart

Cooking Class Ubud, Bali

Any opportunity to learn new cooking styles (and get to eat the produce) is a big green light for me so I was keen to get involved at Ketut’s Bali Cooking School.  I actually chose this cooking school off the internet but was not disappointed. We were collected from our hotel then taken around the…
