I visited Where Pigs Fly, just outside of Sydney, to meet Bubbles the piglet and the other beautiful creatures that live there. Where Pigs Fly is an animal sanctuary dedicated to the shelter and care of farmed animals. The most abused types of animals on this planet.

After feeling mugged off (geddit?!) from the lack of tea here in Oz, I had a tea-rrific Sunday afternoon brewing up my own concoctions at the T Totaler Tea in Newtown.

There was even a kitten cuddle tent and a dingo cuddle tent with money going to the respective animal charities!Read More
