The winter sun was shining when we woke up on Sunday, so we jumped in the car and drove south. A former colleague of Oliver’s was opening a cafe in Berrima and it seemed like the perfect excuse to visit the Southern Highland town.

We passed our Mini’s grandfather along the way – that’s him in the wing mirror.


No road trip would be complete without his and hers almond flat whites from our favourite Zetland coffee shop.


Full English for the Aussie and a typical Aussie breakfast of of avo on sourdough for the Brit. It’s not just our accents that are getting mixed up.



We explored the village and found a beautiful homeware store in which we mentally kitted out our whole home. I would have loved to bring this cute Birdy B&B home with us but I’m not sure it would be a relaxing stay for any birds with our furry monsters around!


Always attracted to succulents; possibly due to the fact that they are the only thing I can keep alive!



So many bees buzzing around these beautiful flowers outside the leather goods workshop and store.


On our way home, we pulled in to investigate a sign for the Berkelouw Book Barn and stumbled upon the beautiful Bendooley Estate. A restaurant nestled amongst the vineyards and doubling as a bookstore – such a great find for a wine-loving nerd like me.


I found another nerd amongst the shelves!


The smell of the wood fire only added to the feeling that we could have spent hours enjoying this place. We’ll definitely be bringing our visitors here when they arrive in February, although I can’t imagine we will be able to wait that long to come back.


My date.


Such a perfect end to a wonderful weekend.
