Festive Gift Ideas for the Foodie in your life!

So, it's that time of year again! It comes round fast doesn't it? Behold… my annual Gingey christmas gift guide.

I love writing this blog post because it's a chance for me to peruse all the things I'm secretly hoping will be bought for me! I've split it into sections; things to eat & drink, experiences, gadgets & stocking fillers. So, without further ado…

Travel Bites: Eating & Drinking in Fremantle, Western Australia

The city of Fremantle in Western Australia is a pretty place full of Victorian architecture and with the feel of a frontier outpost turned hippy. Although it's technically called a 'city', Freo (as it's known by the locals) is really just a town with around 35,000 inhabitants. If you compare this to Bristol (430,000) or Leicester (330,000) it's tiny!

My November Discoveries

How has another month gone by? It feels like I only just posted my October Discoveries and now, here we are staring December in the face. We've been in Melbourne for over a month now and I've discovered so many amazing things and places. Far too many to list here so I've some how managed to cut it down to just five!

Day Tripping: Rottnest Island, Western Australia

Last month we spent three weeks in Western Australia. One of my favourite things we did was visit the beautiful island of Rottnest, around 30 minutes ferry ride away from Perth. A peaceful place full of happy holiday makers, quokkas and breathtaking scenery.

Pork & Tofu Kimchi Jjigae (뒤지김치찌개)

It's well documented that I love Korean food, I even talked about it in my last blog post about the best  Asian food around Melbourne. One of the dishes I raved about was Kimchi Jjigae – a Korean stew often made with pork or seafood. It's a little bit spicy, nice and filling – the perfect winter warmer!
