My wanderlust has been
around since day one. Born
in beautiful Bandung (West
Java), I have always felt a
strong pull towards other cultures and
landscapes. Ever since I've been old enough
to hop on a plane alone, I've been saving for
the next ticket to adventure.
Choosing my favourite travel
destinations is difficult. However, a few
memories remain etched on my mind
forever and I would recommend everyone
to try these at least once in their lifetime.
Spending time in Paris is one, and longer
the better. You must linger over a coffee at
a sidewalk cafe in Paris. It is simply the best
way to soak up the atmosphere and feel a
part of it.
I also reminisce about the open-air
Italian arias in Heidelberg, where I spent
time during university years, and fun times
spent dancing ballroom in Brighton, tango
in Buenos Aires and salsa in the Atacama
Desert. My love of the outdoors has seen me
climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, exploring the vast
steppes of Mongolia, and the wilds of Alaska
in small ships.
Memories are often tied up with the
senses, so it should come as no surprise
that my fondest travel memory is of cooking
with the Bedouins under the Egyptian
stars. The exotic aromas, tastes and great
company were simply amazing.
The world is one giant playground, and
I love that I've been able to make travel my
play and my work.

The travel bug caught on early and never quite left for
World Journeys' Judith Wesley.
Tasmania's boutique yet
burgeoning wine sector boasts
four distinct wine touring
routes located en route to
some of Tasmania's iconic attractions or
within easy reach of major centres. The
cellar-door experience here is as diverse
as the wine styles this Australian island
has to offer, ranging from converted
heritage stables to ultra-modern
operations. Each vineyard has its own
charm and producers are usually on
hand to share their passion for wines,
making the story more interesting.
Tamar Valley Wine Route
Take your time to explore the varied
wines of the Tamar Valley in northern
Tasmania. The oldest wine region in
Tasmania, it is beautifully crowded
with more than 30 cellar doors. This
is truly a voyage of discovery as every
vineyard has a unique story to tell. In
this region, make sure you visit expat
Kiwi couple, Peter and Sue, at Brook
Eden Vineyard. A small, family-owned
and organically-managed vineyard, it
produces a great drop.
Southern Wine Route
This route covers the Derwent, Coal
River and Huon valleys and is very
easily accessed from Hobart. The region
is rich with a variety of landscapes and
experiences. You can get up close with
Tasmanian Devils or cruise the pristine
southern waters at Peppermint Bay.
East Coast Wine Route
On Tasmania's sunny east coast, superb
seafood and cool-climate wines make
an unforgettable combination. Leaving
footprints on white sandy beaches,
swimming in crystal-clear waters and
soaring with sea eagles are among the
coastal adventures you can experience
along this trail.
North West Wine Route
This route is home to the breathtaking
Cradle Mountain, spectacular Bass
Strait and the rich red soils and lush
green pastures that create a landscape
of rural charm around lesser-known
towns and secret seaside villages. It also
boasts the very best of local produce
making it a gourmet's delight.
Among Tasmania's many delights are cool-climate wines that
linger in your mouth long after the trip is over.
