Every winter my Grandpa takes of in his caravan and travels up to Queensland for a couple of months. What he gets up to i’m not to sure, i do know that he hides his keys and offers his humble home( in Kiama) to his favourite Grandchildren.Roadtrips are always exciting and i’ll use any excuse to surround myself with the things i love… the smell of the ocean, watching the sunset over the harbour, op shops and antiques, heritage buildings and terrace houses, beachside apartments. I’m in heaven walking down the main strip spotting at least 3 Ice creamerys. On Monday we visited Berry, a town overflowing with unspoiled green hillsides,laidback cafes, art & giftware stores.Not a starbucks in sight! I wore myself out pottering around ensuring that i covered every inch of the town.We stopped only for a coffee break & i had a slice of organic fruit & nut loaf with ricotta and honey from Jetz Cafe. My day came to an end at a modern vietnamese restauraunt where prawn pancakes, spring rolls and stif fried noodles were enjoyed by all. My favourite thing about Berry would definately be the decorative detail to their stores, the time it must take and the effort put into them- i was impressed. On Tuesday hours were spent raiding the past hoping to uncover hidden treasures. I was stoked to find two pairs of cute second hand shoes in my size! I collected an assortment of goodies in which i’ll will be posting very soon:) We drove out to Jamberoo in the afternoon. I was unaware of Jamberoos existence until today, for years I’ve thought that Jamberoo was just an odd name for an amusement park. With a population of 942 people Jamberoo is a quaint but cosy little village with an awesome old fashioned pub. The appeal of country towns is one quite hard to describe. i guess i just love escaping the everyday rat race and embracing different threads of life.
