Lets face it, at any one time, we are all dreaming of a holiday. I get back from one trip and I’m already planning and getting excited about the next one. So when Sunshine Coast Tourism invited me on a road trip up to the Glasshouse Mountains and beaches, of course I jumped at the chance.
In today’s modern world we are all busy. It seems we never have time for our friends anymore. We are connecting more online and via social media than actually getting out there face to face.

We are so busy keeping on top of everything, that we are not making time for looking after our own emotional wellbeing.
O’ahu, Hawaii – my first trip to this amazing island. It’s somewhere that has been on the bucket list for quite some time.

Since I was 17, I have lived in this crazy world as WAG to race-car driver, Russell Ingall. It’s a fast paced lifestyle, full of fast cars, glitzy parties and glamorous people.

Sure there have been downsides as well, but when I look back over the last 25 years, I wouldn’t change a thing.
