#reviews ‘We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Lillypilly's Cottages & Day Spa after our car breaking down only 15 Klms from Maleny and waiting 90 minutes for RACQ to attend and tow our vehicle away. We were so stressed out when we arrived at Lillypillys but that did not last long. Adele the owner was so wonderful making us tea and scones while our bags were taken to the cottage for us. .
With no transport Adele took us into Montville the following morning so we could spend time looking around the shops then the day we left drove us to the train station. This was so thoughtful and helped us so much. .
We would highly recommend you go and stay at this beautiful place. We will certainly be going back: great spa, views and food 'Ten out of Ten'. Phil T - Tripadvisor Reviewer .

Hory, vodopády a divoká zvířata kam se podíváš, to byl Milford. ❤@veruna_k Cesta sem byl pro nás naplněný sen, na Novém Zélandu jsme měli dvě místa, bez kterých jsme Nový Zéland nechtěli opustit.
Prvním místem je Hora osudu - Tongariro a Ruapehu na Severním ostrově, sice jsme tam byli, ale světoznámý Tongariro Alpine Crossing jsme bohužel nešli. Alespoň máme důvod k tomu, abychom v budoucnu navštívili Zéland znovu!
Last month, our family achieved one of the hardest things we’ve ever done. We hiked up an active volcano in Guatemala and spent an unforgettable night sleeping to the pompous eruptions of Volcano Pacaya.
Hiking to the summit of the volcano took every ounce of endurance in me. The incline was vigorously steep, the terrain was slippery, and the wind was fearfully strong. It was pitch black, except for the dim light tunnel from my headlamp. As the altitude and exhaustion began taking a toll on my body, I started praying intensely for God to give me strength to persevere. What I heard God whispering repeatedly to me was, “It’s going to be okay. Just focus on the next step, nothing further. One step at a time.” So, for the final hour of climbing up that summit, that’s what I did. I no longer strained my eyes to assess the distance and difficulty the path ahead appeared to be. I simply kept my head down and focused on making sure my next step would be sturdy and safe. Every time fear overcame me again and I felt the urge to give up, I held onto God’s words. One step at a time. Just focus on the next step.
When we finally made it to the summit, where we stood just 80 feet away from the crater, the mesmerizing scene of the volcano’s fierce eruptions in front of us was a deeply profound moment that made every painful step to arrive there well worth it.
I share this experience because we are all collectively going through unprecedented challenges together, and the future of the unknown can feel so overwhelmingly scary. But as God so wisely repeated to me on that night in Guatemala, all we can do is to take it one step at a time, and focus on what we do TODAY. Don’t try to predict how life will change after this and don’t drown in sorrow for cancelled plans. Instead, focus on today and what we can do with the gift of time that we are given right this moment. Let the current challenges help us to grow, to reflect, to reprioritize, and to shape us into stronger, kinder, more resilient people. Then, when we see the light at the end of the tunnel as a changed humanity, we can also collectively say, “it was worth it.”
I cant stress this enough! Take this time to heal, renew, and explore yourself. Get out there and go for a work out, breathe fresh air, and meditate. Of course remember just to take your mask for when you see that you will be a bit too close to someone and try to stay on empty trails. Keep safe y’all! 😘 🏃♀️💪🏻 #timetoheal#cardio#workout#safetyfirst#meditate#nature#hikes#miami 🌴
Happy Monday everyone! I know some of us may have our spirits down after it was announced that this quarantine is being extended until the end of April.. but we must stay strong!
A little mood booster: “ When you can’t control what is happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what is happening. That’s where your power is!” 💙
Can we just rewind back to 2019? Especially fall? Missing the gourd-geous outdoor hikes, yummy cider doughnuts, food, and treats at @penningsfarm
