Hyding in the Park

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 1 Jan 2008 | Views [852]

First day of the year and recovery is the order of the day. Luckily, the magnificent Hyde Park is no more than a few blocks away from us, and provides everything you'd need to do nothing. Grassy lawns. Bright sun. Utter quiet. Perfect. Captain Cook ... Read more >

Happy New Year!

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 31 Dec 2007 | Views [858]

We got to experience the earliest New Year of our lives, a full 11 hours before you folks back home in Ireland. Food, drink, friends and fireworks. What else could you ask for? Earlier, we'd part-taken in the rehearsal for Kathrina and Barry's wedding.... Read more >

Kia Orana! There are fifteen main islands in the country named Cook Islands, and of these fifteen islands which house 14,000 - 19,000 people (depending on who you ask or who's counting), Rarotonga is the largest. Our base on Rarotonga, the Muri Beach ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 6 Aug 2007 | Views [374]

Wrecked. Just wrecked. Today was occupied by clothes washing, reading, grocery shopping, cooking and watching some New Zealand TV - the highlights from which were the farewell to the All Blacks who left from Christchurch today for the World Cup in France ... Read more >

Koala Day

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 22 Jul 2007 | Views [379]

Inspired by our furry friends from yesterday, we took to testing how exactly one (well two, I suppose) could spend a day that consisted of only four waking hours, half of which are spent eating. Not too difficult, let us assure you, in fact we mastered ... Read more >

Four Mile Beach

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 20 Jul 2007 | Views [390] | Comments [1]

Apparently Four Mile Beach is one of the best reasons to visit Port Douglas, and it is quite an impressive beach, though fairly windy and home to a few too many jellyfish, or stingers, to make you comfortable (see Ruth with sign above). We did find another ... Read more >

Port Douglas

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 19 Jul 2007 | Views [387]

5 hours or so after take off from Sydney (where, by the way, not one person checked our ID), we arrived in Port Douglas, 67km north of Cairns and one of the sunnier places to experience the Aussie winter. We're staying here for a week, and sick as we ... Read more >

Sydney Harbour Bridge

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 18 Jul 2007 | Views [403]

Wrecked from last night, we took a bit of a lie in (while our hosts made the effort to go to work), and then a gentle boat ride across Sydney Harbour, under the magnificent and famous bridge and past the equally magnificent and famous Opera House to ... Read more >

Japanese Baths

JAPAN | Saturday, 7 Jul 2007 | Views [2101] | Comments [3]

Japanese baths are amazing.  We decided to take it easy today.  We took the Yurikamome Line (an elevated train line) to one of Tokyo's baths, Ooedo-onsen Monogatari.  The journey was great, we got to see a side of Tokyo we hadn't been to yet and the ... Read more >

Night-time in Ginza

JAPAN | Friday, 6 Jul 2007 | Views [587]

Nothing much to report from today - we traveelled back from Kyoto after being based there for four days, and then just headed out to Ginza for a civilized night on the town - picture Ballsbridge rather than Temple Bar. Anyhow, the nightline of late night ... Read more >
