    Amazing Things to do in Byron Bay

    Ohhhh Byron!!! How good is to travel and enjoy its warm weather and surf vibes during all year round? It was my second time in Byron Bay since I’m living in Australia – 2015, but this time now in a road trip as the pandemic situation is not allowing us to travel outside NSW yet (the borders should open for Xmas time!). Check my first trip to Byron Bay by clicking here. It was absolutely amazing to know this place for the first time and it has extra information. But on this post I will show you more things to do as I spent 10 days in this paradise! Explore…

    Loving my new Google Pixel Buds

    Last month was full of nice surprises! I received a lovely email from my #teampixel saying that I was going to receive a parcel with one of their latest launch to try it! I got so sooooo excited because it is always something really amazing from Google of course! If you follow me on Instagram @heycassitravel, you probably saw me unboxing a parcel from Google with my new Pixel Buds, but if you didn’t see it in real time there, here is somo photos and my reviews! First, I’m luck enough to have the opportunity to try Google products since they’ve started developing phones, but they’re just getting better and…

    A guide to Mudgee

    Our first time in Mudgee was absolutely amazing! What a beautiful town, located in the west of Sydney, New South Wales. It’s around 3.5 hours driving from Sydney and the road views are fantastic! It’s gorgeous to see the nature all the way to Mudgee. Unfortunately some parts are still recovering from the bushfires but it’s a lot to see during this road trip. Lithgow, Blue Mountains We planned to stop at Lithgow town for a quick coffee break and to know another place on our way to Mudgee. Lithgow is located around 2 hours from Sydney in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales. We had a beautiful coffee…

    My Experience with Holiday Inn Potts Point in Sydney, NSW

    I know this may sound cliche, but I love Sydney! I’ve been living here for 5 years, I’ve visited so many amazing places but I feel that there are still so many others to explore. But even the places I’ve already visited, I still love enjoying the same views such as Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge as if it was my first time there. Last weekend, I had an amazing time celebrating these incredible 5 years living here at the Holiday Inn Potts Point, Sydney, NSW. I stayed at Harbour View Room, which was absolutely fantastic! The location is excellent, in the heart of historic Potts Point, next to Kings…

    Awesome Things To Do | Berry, South Coast NSW

    The charm and stylish Berry is located in the Shoalhaven region of the NSW South Coast and it’s a beautiful quick country escape. I loved my weekend gateaway walking around the gorgeous town of Berry. How to get there Berry is around two hours driving from Sydney and you can take the spectacular Grand Pacific Drive to get there. You can also take a train from Sydney to Berry, a scenic journey of around three hours, but I really recommend to hire a car to enjoy the region with more freedom. Where to Stay Accommodation options include country cottages, B&Bs, boutique inns and farmstays. I stayed at The Pines Bed and Breakfast as it’s very busy at the…

    We painted a new Mural in Sydney

    Last month, my beloved husband and Sydney artist @BrunoMota created a new amazing mural for a lovely Yoga Studio in Rosebery, NSW. Of course I was there supporting him again in his duties painting, photographing and filming everything in this project! The new artwork is part of a yoga studio rebranding. Bruno’s idea is to bring positivity, balance and energy through his colours to when the studio opens its doors after quarantine, due covid19. It was a great time of a healing process for us and hopefully it helps in some way the members of this studio. Namaste 🙏 Do you love art? Follow us on Instagram: @BrunoMota & @HeyCassiTravel…

    My artistic side

    If you follow me on Instagram @Heycassitravel you know that sometimes I’m an artist! 🙂 But if it’s your first time here, I will share with you how it all began… Bruno Mota, my husband is a professional painter around 10 years and back in that time, we started painting together in Brazil, but I didn’t find motivation to keep going professionally and Bruno did. So I watched him grow painting since his first canva, developing so many skills with talent and passion. Still in Brazil, I started to be very interested in street art, graffiti and in big public projects. Since the beginning Bruno found his own style and…

    My Quarantine Routine

    This is a very difficult time for everyone around the world. It’s so sad to watch what’s happening with all the people affected by the Covid-19. There is a lot of negativity out there and it’s being hard to live in these conditions of quarantine right now. But also, there are opportunities during this situation and I believe we need to keep going, staying positive and following the guides as well as the recommendations of World Health Organization – WHO and the government (health.gov.au) – Australia in my case. I’m already 40 days in quarantine where I live in Sydney, Australia. The numbers of Covid-19 cases here are falling as…

    Weekend Guide to Canberra

    I’ve had very busy but wonderful months, travelling through beautiful places. If you follow me on Instagram (@heycassitravel) for a little you could see all the places I’ve been visiting in real time and Canberra was one of them (check my Highlight Stories Saved). The trip was much better than I expected…Canberra is an amazing city, very modern and organized and, believe me, there are so many things to do there, that one weekend wasn’t enough for us. We’re definitely planning to come back asap. Canberra has been ranked third in Lonely Planet’s Best Cities to Visit in 2018 – that’s higher than any Australian city has ever been ranked…

    Kims Beachside Retreat Review

    Everyone knows how I love amazing hotels and to share beautiful places during my travels, but Kims Beachside Retreat definitely had my heart! What a fantastic luxury treehouse surrounded by a beautiful bush and right in front of the gorgeous Toowoon Bay, in Central Coast, New South Wales. If you’re looking for a place to relax, staying close to nature, pampering yourself with luxury products, awesome service and disconnect from the noise of our busy routine, read until the end… When the Hotel is the Destination Sometimes the hotel is the reason for the trip, which was this case. I arrived at 3:00 pm at Kims, the day was beautiful,…
