Easter is heading our way fast, and it’s at this time that I start thinking – holiday! Of course, so does the rest of Australia, but there is something exciting about a 4 day weekend to get your mind clicking over. A jaunt to the winery region? Perhaps a beachside retreat if the weather is good? Do you think I could make it all the way to Paris? What are you planning for the Easter break?
