Exciting Fraser Island

Tuesday, 23 Sep 2008 | Views [769]

If some days before we were in the epitomy of relax roasting in the sun while laying in the deck of the Habibi around the Whitsundays, the experience of Fraser Island is the absolute opposite.   The thing goes as such, if you ... Read more >

Beautiful Whitsundays

Thursday, 18 Sep 2008 | Views [892]

Millennia ago I was telling you that some friends were coming all the way from Spain (sorry, from Catalonia) to visit us. So finally they came. And of course, to be a proper cicerone, I had to prepare a nice and eventful route for them. ... Read more >

The ignored article (parenthesis)

Thursday, 18 Sep 2008 | Views [616]

When we were going to pick up the van in Darwin, we flew from Brisbane with Jetstar. Reading the inflight magazine we saw that they were doing a competition for a travel story, and the winner was going to get two free return tickets to the Jetstar ... Read more >

Rubies and sapphires

Wednesday, 6 Aug 2008 | Views [1006]

They say that the area west of Emerald, and compressed by the small townships of Sapphire, Rubyvale, Anakie and Willows are the largest gemfields in the world. And the world is a pretty big place, so I guess this must be quite a special feature. ... Read more >

Gorgeous Carnarvon

Wednesday, 6 Aug 2008 | Views [2352] | Comments [1]

Many people had told me already how magnificient the Carnarvon Gorge is. But you know that a big amount of words doesn’t feel quite like a real experience. Well then, after my real experience, I will join those who tell how magnificient the Carnarvon ... Read more >

Love song

Wednesday, 6 Aug 2008 | Views [653]

You don’t know it yet, but a few days ago, I started a new trip. A couple of friends of mine from Spain are coming all the way down to visit us, so considering the effort in time, will and money, we have to happily pamper them a little bit.... Read more >

Some impressions about Australia

Wednesday, 18 Jun 2008 | Views [932]

For a long time, Tiffany has been insisting me to write what are the things that, under my foreigner point of view, have called my attention in our Australian experience so far.   I have been delaying the writing of this post for ... Read more >


Tip of our hat and warm smile

Friday, 13 Jun 2008 | Views [811]

Being poor of purse, but rich in eloquence, let us look back over our   two months with The Van with but a drop of nostalgia. Blue skies  have taken over as the propelling force, just as we once took over from the Hussy Hicks ... Read more >

Thank you and farewell to our Ambassador Van

Wednesday, 4 Jun 2008 | Views [784] | Comments [2]

And we have handed over the Ambassador Van to a new crew. As World Nomad Ambassadors we have traveled this wide brown land, tapping our fingers on the keyboard along the way. We’ve watched the kilometer thingy flicking over with hypnotic repetition.... Read more >

Conversations on the road V

Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [544]

(I haven’t uploaded conversations on the road for some time because, as we all know, familiarity breeds contempt, and in this case, enclosure in a little van erased what little sense of humour I had left after our India trip. However, with ... Read more >

Rockhampton - cattle capital and rather pretty for all that.

Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [1273]

The old sandstone buildings are being restored, the botanical gardens are pretty (I loved the Japanese garden and huge golden bamboo), and we now sit in the Rockhampton Art Gallery sipping coffee and indulging our lap top caprice. ... Read more >
