    Spirit of Queensland Brisbane to Proserpine by Tilt Train

    You may have seen my most recent thread, Whitsunday Escape where I had booked a bareboat trip with some friends and had planned to fly between Brisbane and Proserpine by plane until I got sick. I thought this part of the trip needed its own thread as it is an experience in itself. The Spirit...

    Whitsunday Escape

    A few friends had organized a bareboat charter in the Whitsundays for 2020. What is a Bareboat Charter? You rent a boat only and allowed to sail or motor it with you and a few of your friends. What does it cost, you pay a fee around $6,000 to hire the boat for a week, so around $850 each for 8...

    Some of the new tablets are now working more like a laptop, but if you are using a laptop for travel then would you stick with a laptop or consider a tablet with keyboard attachment. Anyone using a tablet and not a laptop; or people still using a small laptop; and I am not talking about...
