Meet Australian Travel Bloggers Kerri and Stirling of Beer and Croissants
Who Are We
We are Kerri and Stirling, and Beer and Croissants is our way of expressing all that we love about travel, food and drinking experiences. For us, travel equals food. Find out more about Beer and Croissants here.
Kerri is a former corporate executive and Stirling is an engineer / property developer whose combined passion for travel started with our first trip in 1995.
We are proud Queenslanders, born in regional country towns, with Brisbane now our home.
We travel for the experiences, learning and for the personal enrichment it creates.
Travel is about freedom and for us, this is best expressed by eating local foods and spending time in unknown local communities having a drink and a chat.
We hang out in food markets, stay on farms, do cooking classes and even re-create the international foods we have eaten when we get home.
Travelling by motorhome is also a great love, and is a significant part of our travel expertise. Having driven motorhomes over much of Europe, New Zealand, UK and Australia, we are well versed in all aspects of travelling in this way.
What Do We Do
Kerri is the writer for Beer and Croissants. She is the details person, writing professional, comprehensive articles. These are usually destination related, hotel and product reviews or provide insight into an experience such as a food tour or cooking class.
Kerri is also a co-photographer and the main social media creator, whilst Stirling also shares the photography duties and is the drone pilot.
