Australia: New Years Eve Sydney

Australia: New Years Eve Sydney

| January 1, 2012 | 2 Comments

                    Am I still dreaming or did we really just spend  Sydney New Years Eve together watching the fireworks from what has to be the best free NYE vantage point in Sydney?  No I’m not, we have the pictures and videos to prove it (you do stop taking […]

Australia: Gold Coast to Sydney

Australia: Gold Coast to Sydney

Gold Coast Gadgets Weather and Driving  Apologies for the delay in the blog update, we have suffered a slight technical hitch.   The laptop had a bit of a fit and the screen decided that it did not want to behave as a screen but instead as a kaleidoscope of multi coloured pixels. This set me […]

Fraser Island, Noosa & National Parks

Fraser Island, Noosa & National Parks

| December 24, 2011

Just like the Radio Times Christmas TV guide, this is a bumper edition.  So sit back get a glass of your favourite tipple and read on. The weather has been a bit mean to us over the last few days, gradually getting worse (the worst Australia has seen in 65 years.) Did this little bit […]

Australia: Gold Coast Relaxation

Australia: Gold Coast Relaxation

Melbourne to Adelaide Gold Coast As I write this we have now spent the last three days on the Gold Coast in Broadbeach, just south of Surfers Paradise.   If we had stuck to Plan A we would have spent these days in Adelaide (in torrential rain as it turned out) and be on our way […]

Australia: Melbourne Travel Thoughts

Australia: Melbourne Travel Thoughts

| December 19, 2011 | 1 Comments

G’day!  We’ve had a fab time in good ‘old’ Melbourne. I say old, as although this place is on a massive expansion plan for 2020, the city retains an ‘old-fashioned’ charm.  Melbourne is pretty big already, as far as global players go, you’ll see apartment blocks being erected at a phenomenal rate and  many historic and characterful buildings, […]

Australia: The Great Ocean Road

Australia: The Great Ocean Road

| December 18, 2011 | 3 Comments

Having got over our jet lag, our last day in Victoria was given over to mother nature and a trip to view what millions of years of evolution and erosion can do to a coastline. The Great Ocean Road runs through the south of Victoria, Australia, along the Bass Strait hugging the coastline from Torquay to Warrnambool […]

Australia: Mwah Mwha Melbourne

Melbourne by Night, or is it Day ? It has been three days since we arrived in Melbourne (it is now the evening of Wednesday 14th as I write this).   I am afraid we are having a right old battle with Jetlag.  I have yet to manage to keep awake beyond 8pm in the evening local […]

Arriving in Melbourne this morning Sunday, 11th December 2011 at 09:30hrs we disembarked our second leg Air Asia X flight from KL a little bewildered. There were plenty of empty seats on the plane; one nice guy even offered us a bank of three seats for a sleep, not that we did, too excited to […]

Flying to Australia: Time Travel

Flying to Australia: Time Travel

| December 11, 2011 | 0 Comments

Flying to Australia has provided us with two very very very very long days, with lots of waiting around. We managed on the whole to entertain ourselves and get through it, but it is not something you would want to do every week. I am glad we are taking our time getting back home and not […]

Emotions, excitement and a mysterious travel companion

Emotions, excitement and a mysterious travel companion

| December 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

Emotions are a funny old thing aren’t they. You can try and keep them all packaged up in a nice little box on a shelf but eventually they prise open the lid and jump out and begin to scratch away at your calm controlled exterior until the wounds are visible for all to see. The […]
