“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” St Augustine.

    I am a freelance writer, virgin blogger, diehard foodie and obsessed style hack.

    Australian born and bred, my first overseas trip was to the United Kingdom via glorious Vienna. It was December 1974. The girl from ‘the colonies’ was boggle-eyed and filled with the wonder of it all. Australia was so different back then. No quick phone calls to the relatives in London. No internet for immediate access to the world. No mobile phones. No Google Earth to navigate the globe from the comfort of your lounge chair.

    University studies, work, three children…you know the story… Overseas travel was placed in a holding pattern until 2002 with a visit to Stockholm to catch up with old friends. To this day, my husband Monty and I continue to travel overseas when time and budget permit.

    One of my great passions is researching for future adventures. Monty’s passion is photography.

    Monty and Me is for likeminded travellers who are patiently saving and planning their next adventure.
