I volunteered for the wolf’s den

INDIA | Thursday, 26 Jun 2008 | Views [2012]

The two men jumped out of thin air, smiling, gesturing, waving an exotic smell under my nose, and I was hooked. I had a list of ‘musts’ to experience in India. Some call this being a tourist. I’m going to see something I’ve heard about, ... Read more >

Tip of our hat and warm smile

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 13 Jun 2008 | Views [1575]

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 >

Conversations on the road V

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [1125]

(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.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [2178]

Curvy Coastlines

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [1434]

The greatest thing about leaving Cairns for the less populated areas was the re-emergence of the stars.   Its one of the great healing sights for me and getting away from the electric lights of a town is a big positive. ... Read more >

Port Douglas and the Daintree

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 May 2008 | Views [2850] | Comments [2]

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 9 May 2008 | Views [2414] | Comments [1]

Croydon, a little town with a beating heart of gold (We entered Croydon with a recent 4000 kilometres under our belt) I’m flicking through the brochures, finding more information, and nothing comes close to explaining the reality of entering ... Read more >
