I love the early morning sound of the bush and the silence that descends on you when you arrive.
I love road trips and watching scenery roll past the window. All types of books, magazines, blogs, cookbooks; anything I can get my hands on.
I love novels and fiction for when you are relaxing in the bush or on the beach or during a long plane ride. There are few things in life more relaxing and entertaining than reading.
