Genova. I've never been before, so when a day trip with the family was suggested, I was without hesitation. The drive was so scenic with snow capped mountain looming on one side, and sparkling mediterranean on the other side. The city is set on mountainous terrain that sweeps into a large port, but its the old buildings wrapped in modern highways that is the bizarre sight to my eyes. I have done my fair share of exploring the globe, and new sites are always going to be fascinating, but when you have no pictures in your memory bank to compare new places, the feeling is aliveness.
The aquarium, the point of the trip, is the largest in Europe - I have to highlight that it is barely half the size of the modest Melbourne aquarium. 2 bored dolphins, a few small sharks and seals, and a range of tropical fish made up the inhabitants. Its nice to see the emphasis on the environment, because elsewhere in Italy it barely exists - but the largest in Europe was hard to believe.
Docked port side of the Aquarium was The restored ship of Christopher Columbus. It is a spectacular sight to behold - almost comical surrounded by million dollar yachts, and the giant glass sphere containing fauna and birdlife. With daylight savings over, the day was not nearly enough. I look forward to another visit

My girls at Splendour in the Grass. The Mini Splendour area was crazy fun. GLOTATTS sponsored the event so that all the little celebrity kidless got their sparkle with tattoos and glitter. Overall what a perfect last day to a hugely successful festival!

Satvik Foods nourishment

  I want to share with you my gratitude and joy for the past five years of working alongside my sister, Kat and her husband Moi, at Satvik Foods. As a family-owned business, Satvik Foods has been a creative outlet for me within this mature company of 13 years. I've had the opportunity to be a part of something special, and to reconnect with my roots and heritage through the rituals of preparing and eating food. I have worked plenty with my family, but each is a unique experience. We've had our fair share of disagreements, but we always come together with a shared vision of creating nourishing, Ayurvedic-inspired dishes that are accessible to everyone. I've learned so much from them, not just about food but about business, marketing, and communication. The learning curve has been steep, but it's been worth it. I've learned the importance of patience and perseverance, and how to adapt to changing market trends and consumer preferences. Most importantly, I've red

RADA CAMPBELL - MOTHER & ENTREPRENEUR,  SATVIK FOODS.  TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF- WHO YOU ARE, AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am a mother, creative and entrepreneur. I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself. I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki.
