In The Taratory is a blog run by two 20-somethings who share the same name (can you guess what it might be?), bringing reviews of all things to experience in and around the ACT. Having just celebrated our six month anniversary and with 40 posts under our belt, it felt timely to, well, review our reviews!
Despite huffing and puffing being a major theme, T1 has been determined to trek up the hills and mountains in the ACT and surrounds.
Camel’s Hump (that pointy mountain on the ranges) was conquered – but sadly on a terribly cloudy September day.
T1 managed to complain the entire time going up and down Mt Tennent, but is still stoked to have completed it – twice! She also headed south of the border to Mt Kosciuszko, doing the 22km Lakes Walk (with – yes – lots of complaining).
T1 highly recommended taking visitors to do the Square Rock walking trail, not least because it’s relatively flat the whole way, with some great views at the end.
T1 and T2’s dining experiences have been mixed, with lots of hits, but just as many misses.
T2’s experience at Belconnen’s Bella Vista was a positive one, with great food and service. T1 was disappointed with the breakfast service Bella Vista’s neighbour Ha Ha Bar in Belconnen, but will still be back because of the quality of the food.
T2 provided some handy tips for those of us who are caught up with the awesome (and not so awesome) deals from the group buying websites.
T1 and T2 both headed along to Foreshore, having enjoyed it in previous years. We were just a touch underwhelmed – can’t work out if it’s because we’re getting older, or because got caught in the huge downpour that day!
