Sayonara, Hokkaido!

9 May

An enjoyable trip in all, Piggletino hops into his little “onsen bath tub” along with his wine, Japanese mochi dessert and a cup of green-tea latte!

Goodbye Hokkaido, we’ll be back!

Dreaming in Yarra

17 Dec

Piggletino visits the Yarra Valley!

He was dreaming of having his own vineyard… rolling hills in the background, a beautiful blue sky framing his land…

…Ploughing the fields with a little tractor…
(PS: Spot the pig! He’s driving!)

And maybe some day have his own wine-brand like this…
(PS: Can you spot the pig again?)

Exploring the areas of Mornington Peninsula

4 Dec

Ah, what a wonderful world…

Piggletino is up early and out in the wild at Mornington Peninsula, about an hour and a half’s drive out of Melbourne.

There is so much to see and do at Mornington Peninsula’s coastal towns – to shop at Mount Martha, or a leisurely drive to the top of Arthur’s Seat? Relax by the beaches of Rosebud, or live luxuriously in one of Portsea’s clifftop mansions?

Since Piggletino couldn’t decide, he chose to stop by a winery to get some sun!
