We will have only just returned home, but with another Conference on the cards the chance to indulge in plunge pools, spa treatments and flavoursome cuisine in beautiful Bali just can't be missed.

Truffle Hunting Oz Style in Manjimup, WA

The Western Australian June long weekend seemed a perfect opportunity to finally head south for some ... truffle hunting!!!  That's right, Manjimup in the WA South West is the home of Australian truffles, and they are seriously good (we have eaten Manjimup truffles all around the world including in at Per Se in New York City).  So wish us luck ...

Wedding Bells Kiwi Style (New Zealand)

D's long time Team Member, Melanie, is finally tying the knot with her beau, Fraser, and the nuptials will be taking place in Mel's home town of Hamilton, New Zealand. So of course we will be there "with bells on" to help them celebrate.  And who knows, we may even sneak in a visit to one of those breathtaking luxury spots on the North Island we have coveted for so long.

Baby Lemurs (Madagascar)

Deposits are paid and flights booked - it doesn't appear to be the easiest place to travel, but Madagascar here we come.  Highlights will be of course the lemurs (with hopefully some newborns at that time of year), the tsingy and the island resort of Tsarabanjina.

Blue Mountains Indulgence (Australia)

The September long weekend should be a great opportunity to continue to see more of the beauty our own country has to offer.  So we hope to find an indulgent destination with a warming fireplace within this beautiful area of New South Wales and enjoy a fine red and good company with A's sister Jenna and hubby James.

Sun and Plunge Pools (Indonesia)

Our day jobs mean a lot of conferences and so whenever possible, we tag on some luxury travel and adventures.  August sees us heading to Bali (an obvious conference location, but still very pleasant these days all the same) so we will be taking this opportunity to visit another Alila Hotel!

A New Safari Adventure (Zambia)

We love Africa, and we love being on safari.  It's been two years since our last trip to photograph the amazing wildlife on offer so we are really looking forward to this one.  And best of all we get to travel with our great friend Tania, who also shared our last safari with us in Namibia.

North west WA coast (Broome)

Finally, D's beautiful Niece, Bells, gets to experience her first plane trip, and she is super excited!  

In fact the trip (or at least to be honest, her invitation ;) ) was yet to be locked in until she stood up at 'Show and Tell' at school and announced she would be "Going on a plane with her Uncle D and Aunty A".

(Oh but don't let A hear me call her that ;P )

From that day forward, Bell's participation was no longer in doubtand accordingly we have enrolled her in the Qantas Joey Club, the Frequent Flyer Program for the young 'uns.

Update ... its no longer a Secret, we are in Tuscany, Italy!!! ... PLUS A Desert Oasis (Oman)

Our first destination on our next trip is, unfortunately for you guys, a temporary secret, though there is good reason for that and all will be revealed soon ;)

Then, we head to Oman.  Angela's youngest sister, Jenna, and her dashing (now) husband James finally tied the knot in December, so as our wedding gift to them both, we offered to take them to Oman.  Angela designed and printed a rather impressive "Travel Brochure" on our destination of choice and it was this Jenna and James received from us on the day.  The card read "If you can get yourself to Muscat, the rest of the trip is on us!".
