Madame Wu’s – Brisbane.

Madame Wu’s is a fabulous contemporary Asian fusion restaurant at the Eagle St Pier along Brisbane’s waterfront.

The Maharaja Mac at McDonalds India.

I had been living in Nepal for some months and there is no McDonalds there. Boohoo. Poor me. I had this craving for a Big Mac, or a Cheeseburger, or a sausage McMuffin (red meat anyone?) and the fries, oh I was missing Macca’s fries. When I flew to India for a few days I…

Introduction I was quite…

Nourish by Avata – Vegetarian Restaurant – Kathmandu, Nepal.

Full disclosure here – I am a carnivore. While I have tried many times to go vegetarian, or even pescatarian but I have found some restaurants to be very lacking in their herbivore offerings. And what is the point of only having one choice of a vegetarian meal? Of course countries like India and Nepal…

Plane Spotters Package at the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel.

I had an early flight from Sydney to Singapore and onto Kathmandu. As I live around 75 minutes from the airport (and not wanting to rely on Sydney’s public transport…) I decided to have a pre-departure night near the airport. I checked out many hotels, and while this is a little on the higher cost…
