Travelling Gypsy : Hamilton Island

I love love love travelling!

Most recently for a holiday, our destination was Hamilton Island – Aaaahhhhmaaaaazing! We tagged our little adventure on to the end of our time in Townsville for the V8’s.  Firstly, we ventured down with our friends Jamie and Vince (whom we met in Japan!) and took the drive from Townsville to Airlie Beach.  On our way, we found the lookout at Mount Inkerman. And what a view we found!

And then we found a giant watermelon.. and some cows. Fabian decided they needed to eat some tomatoes – the cow was very gentle, but Fab was terrified of it nipping off his fingers! Vince and Jamie bought some local potatoes and we continued on to Airlie.

Airlie Beach is just devine. There is such a great vibe here – everyone is relaxed and here for a good time. And why wouldn’t they be – when there is a lagoon like this in the city central! Hellooooo sun baking!

And then I found the bar. Hello Sour Apple Vodka goodness!

We then fought the ferry over to Hamilton Island. It only took 30 minutes and we arrived to this: Pure Bliss! We booked our own private bungalow, complete with hammock. Selfie central. Fab proving that he can only concentrate on one thing at a time!

We like to get up and go when we are on holidays! We barely stop, as we know we don’t get much time off, or alone together. So we just HAD to do us much as possible! Our activities included riding the ATV’s (check out the view from the top of the mountain!), playing Mini-Golf (Fab won.. as usual), Go-Karting – where Fabian broke the record for the celebrity go-kart challenge and loved the early morning catamaran lessons. Not to mention the snorkelling, sun baking, jet skiing and enjoying the absolutely stunning views. It was simply amazing!

Hamilton Island even congratulated Fabian on his P1 title with a bottle to celebrate. Winner winner chicken dinner! And I was Go Kart 3. Not bad!

So we took it to enjoy ourselves when watching the sunset together. Ahh romance!

We ate (and drank) our way around the island with joy.

After three days, we were wanting more! We were not at all happy to leave. And who would be? Especially with a view like this!

  • Thank you all so much for your thoughtful, kind and generous well-wishes for my birthday today. It has been such a welcome inundation of love in a true time in need. 
We were admitted to hospital again with Mackenzie today. Honestly, it’s been incredibly testing on multiple levels and really pushed @fabiancoulthard & I to the limit. It seems like for when it rains, it pours. Pneumonia is so so horrendous 😔 Seeing your perfect little person in such a painful and helpless way shatters you into a billion pieces. It’s just so HARD. The way they look at you in pure panic when they trust you so much to help them and fix them and you just can’t. It’s unbearable. It has been an absolute breaker of a time and my birthday has included the highs and the lows, that’s for sure. Nothing makes you realise what is most important in life until it can be taken right from underneath you without warning. She will be fine, we will be fine and I’ll live for another birthday, but please, do me a favour and cuddle your perfect little people extra tight tonight. I just wish I could have my little family all together under the one roof for next years birthday but for now, I’ll be doing what ever I can for my sweet little princess ❤️❤️❤️ #CoulthardAndCo

  • It’s always fun to try something new, right? I love the @esmiskinminerals cleanser and use their tinted moisturiser daily so naturally I’ve had to try their Skin Treats! This one is their limited edition DUO (half hydrating and half nourishing). I’ll be posting on my stories tonight how I use them so make sure you take a look! So happy with the results already. Have you used the skin treats before? Which one is your favourite? #esmiskinminerals #BeckyLamb
