Mansfield: population 2550

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 28 Sep 2007 | Views [3195] | Comments [1]

I've entered the twilight zone; a one street surreal wonder of a place that's a far cry from the Mansfield i grew up in. The plan was to go horse riding and experience the true essence of the Snowy River man.  I should have learnt by now - this isn't ... Read more >

Melbourne Madness

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 26 Sep 2007 | Views [2143]

I can see why there's a perceived competition between Sydney and Melbourne, they're both great cities so it's a tough call as to who is better.  After three separate visits, and one week of staying here my vote goes to Melbourne.  I just found the city ... Read more >

I've got a 3 bed room to myself, a half drunk of surprisingly bad Peter Lehman Shiraz, a huge bag of Cadbury chocolate and a little pair of speakers pumping out nothing but pure emotions. My friendly host for the last 2 weeks has got on with her life ... Read more >

The Snowy Mountains

I read in a guide book that you'd be mad to come to Australia for the skiing...erm yeah.  I didn't go completely out of my way and to a lot more expense by flying into Sydney so that I'd catch the season...nooo, that would be stupid. A night of no sleep ... Read more >

A new town like Milton Keynes, full of offices, no vibe like Sydney, created as the capitol to stop Melbourne and Sydney arguing - yup all true and i really like the place.  Wide streets, plenty of greenery, a fantastic lake, cycle lanes, a laid back ... Read more >

I take an overnight flight where they actually leave you alone to sleep - there's something to be said for the no frills, budget flight.  My body feels like it's still in Asia but my mind is most definitely here, and it's hyper.  I am incredibly excited ... Read more >

Australia - an itinerary!

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | Views [968] | Comments [1]

Wow i have an itinerary for once. I also have aching feet and a cracking hangover as i write this. It seems Sydney has quite a good selection of pubs and people wanting to have a drink with you :-) I seem to have to have a plan, as i have so little ... Read more >

Adios Asia

INDONESIA | Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | Views [1121] | Comments [1]

I've been nearly 8 months in Asia, and yet I've barely scratched the surface.  This tiger has left deep impressions on my mind and soul.  Dragged over many a culture shock inducing bump, I think I've gradually learnt to tame the animal (editor: OK enough!)  ... Read more >

Bali is a small island with a large appetite.  If you're not careful it can swallow you whole before spitting out a financially poorer, but experience richer you.  This place seems to have everything: isolated bays to built up towns, hawkers to whores, ... Read more >

I'm a millionaire!  Alas my million rupiah don't go that far and my 2006 copy of the lousy planet is well out of date.  I feel I paid a lot for one mosquito infested room in a seedy area of sleaze town - the rat in the room was thrown in for free.  Hawkers, ... Read more >
