My Top 5 Travel Destinations to Revisit

By | September 26th, 2014|Travel|

Despite the title of this post, the idea of revisiting a favourite travel destination isn't something I am entirely comfortable to be honest.  Being the pessimist I am, I wonder (worry) that a return visit to a favourite spot wouldn't be as good the second time around, and whether that second visit and subsequent experiences would [...]

Coogee to Bondi coastal walk

By | November 7th, 2012|Australia, Photographic Inspiration|

The Coogee to Bondi coastal walk was one of my favourite things to do during my time in Sydney.  Considering its absolutely free, its value is un-quantifiable   Not a particularly difficult walk, but at 6km and allowing for stop offs it could take around 3 hours.  Be prepared for a few steps and hilly parts, but he [...]

Sydney in a day

By | September 13th, 2011|Australia, Travel, Travel tips|

I lived/dossed in Sydney for the best part of 3 months between 2006 and 2007. In that time I think I got to know the place pretty well and would quite often just wander around the city, taking in the atmosphere whilst slowley cooking in my embarrassingly pale English skin.  There's so many awesome things to see [...]

Australia 2009

By | January 9th, 2010|Australia, Travel, Travel Diary|

Ah, back in Sydney, my most favourite city in the world!  24 hours on a plane had actually gone quite quickly and wasn’t half as leg crushingly painful as I expected it to be.  BA were excellent!  A quick stop where Dan could have a fag was a welcome back straightener, but all in all [...]

Got a couple of messages from home over the past couple of days telling me how miserable it is back home (and how i almost lost my bedroom to a tree) so i thought it was about time i put up another entry and remind you all of what an awesome time i'm having, arent [...]

Australia pt1 – Arriving in Sydney

By | December 17th, 2006|Australia, Travel|

G'day mate (God, I’m SO original sometimes it hurts!) ... or maybe that pain is due to the vast consumption of alcohol last night ... yep that'll probably be it. Oh the pain, lots of gaps from last night, don’t remember leaving and a little unsure of how I made it to my bed, but [...]
