Saving money is good for the environment.
Moving to Cairns has been growing experience. Mostly enlightening, exciting and an adventure and at other times frustrating, hot, and well... frustrating.
Obviously the biggest change is nature gone wild being at your doorstep (also on your veranda and in your roof), however it's made me ponder "In who's backyard are we living in?"
While living in Sydney or any other major city around the world it's easy to feel distant from nature. Maybe it's why the National Geographic and Discovery Channel have become so popular i.e. in our DNA we are wired for a connection with nature, however until we urbanise Mars, we are still all here together living on earth.
The best things about Cairns is it's proximity to nature, and it's unspoilt, under developed beauty. I'd like to keep it that way so when you come up here we can share the beauty together.
The following are some of my personal favourite tips to save money and the environment; for your hip pocket and your children and their children's future.
