Signing Out of Australia

Monday, 15 Jul 2013 | Views [710]

Comfort zone. That place where we feel most at ease - familiar, understanding our surroundings and our expectations, daring to believe we have a degree of control in our daily lives. Travel to different cultures challenges us to step outside of all ... Read more >

Chasing Rainbows & Magnetic Attraction

Sunday, 7 Jul 2013 | Views [1189]

I imagine Magnetic Island to be fairly small and so am quite surprised to find that there are around 3,000 inhabitants, numerous bays to explore with a vast range of accommodation on offer. Booking.com once again steps in and we have found a guest house ... Read more >

Stepping Into Postcard Paradise

Wednesday, 3 Jul 2013 | Views [1553]

Arriving in Airlie Beach after a 14 hour bus trip, I am more than a little grateful to be met by the minibus from Backpackers By the Bay. It’s only a short ride to the hostel, but as anyone travelling with heavy luggage will know, the less it needs ... Read more >

The Sunshine Coast, Queensland

Sunday, 23 Jun 2013 | Views [706]

My first sighting of Brisbane coincides with the most magnificent sunset I have seen in a long time. Typically it would be the first time I have not had a window seat, but this was too good to miss and so making my apologies, I leaned over to get a couple ... Read more >

The Travel Bug

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 | Views [1239] | Comments [1]

I gaze down at the opal ring I felt so drawn to buy in Adelaide. As the sunlight catches upon each of the 8 small stones, the light refracts colours which change from greens, to blues, milky whites and fiery reds. I realise this closely reflects this ... Read more >

Sydney - the grand finale

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 | Views [901]

I suspect that there could be a no more fitting finale for a fabulous stay in Sydney than taking a helicopter tour of the city. Helitours were incredibly helpful arranging a last minute addition to their afternoon flight. From the moment of pickup ... Read more >

Sydney Escapades

Sunday, 12 May 2013 | Views [766]

Note to self: single trip tickets offer greater flexibility! I slept most of the night time journey from Adelaide but arrived in Melbourne at 6am with 7 hours to kill until the Sydney flight – not easy when you have a cumbersome backpack, too large ... Read more >

Drawn towards the approaching city lights at last we arrive in Adelaide. After 12 hours on the Firefly coach, it was with relief all round that we were finally at our destination. I had chosen to do the daytime journey and even though we travelled mostly ... Read more >

Dolphin Temptation

Tuesday, 7 May 2013 | Views [1017]

Some things stand out large enough to warrant their own individual entry and today did just that for me. By 7.20am I was on the marina ready to board Temptation. About 20 of us filed through the boarding procedure – swimmers or spectators. Swimmers ... Read more >

Sydney heading to Melbourne

Tuesday, 30 Apr 2013 | Views [1232]

There is something about Sydney that makes me want to draw a parallel to a show home. Picture perfect, squeaky clean, enviably functional and clearly successful. With any number of books and leaflets detailing the ‘must see’ guide to Sydney, ... Read more >

The First 48 Hours in Sydney

Sunday, 28 Apr 2013 | Views [1177]

No wonder there were no price tags on anything! Did I just stumble across the most expensive convenience store in Australia or am I going to need to take out a mortgage for the next 3 weeks? Grateful my room has a microwave, kettle and fridge. Arriving ... Read more >
