AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 Jan 2009 | Views [428]

The 4 of us decided to see in the New Year on Magnetic Island.  So we made our way north, and arrived on the island on Monday.  Unfortunatly for us the place we stayed in wasn't really up to much and we had a couple of days to kill before the NYE party.... Read more >

Christmas Downunder

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 Jan 2009 | Views [312]

Well Christmas was certainly different for me this year.  It did feel very stranage to be away from home, but we made sure we had a good one. I spent Christmas with Liz who I met when I was in Sydney, Kirsty and Chris who Liz met in Fiji.  We decided ... Read more >

I found Nemo!

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 20 Dec 2008 | Views [402]

My last day trip and this time I was out in a boat, visiting Upolu Cay Reef on the Great Barrier Reef.  It was certainly an early start, meeting down at the marina at 7.30am, this was good though as we were the only boat in this area.  Only 22 people ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 20 Dec 2008 | Views [3345]

I booked an eco-tour at the start of my time in the land of down under to visit Atherton Tablelands at a place called Yungaburra.  Since then I wasn't too bothered about the trip and just thought it would be a nice day out.  However, this has to be one ... Read more >

What a difference a year makes....

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 12 Dec 2008 | Views [345]

11th December last year I started working at Fred Olsen.  Exactly one year on and I decide to jump out of a plane....AGAIN! I had been advised Mission Beach is a fantastic location to skydive, whereby you actually land on the beach. I was certainly ... Read more >

Woohoo Scooteroo

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 10 Dec 2008 | Views [318]

A brief stop in the Town of 1770 was made to join in the exciting scooter trip around this quirky small town.  Now I have to admit I have never been in control of a vehicle with only 2 wheels before and I was slightly nervous about it as I don't think ... Read more >

Whitsunday Islands - different from the original plan

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 7 Dec 2008 | Views [422] | Comments [1]

I got up 7am the next day to see what my options were and a lovely lady called Wendy at reception called around different companies to see what was available and to see if there were any cancellations. I decided to do a day trip with a company called ... Read more >

3 month hiccup

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 7 Dec 2008 | Views [318]

Friday it was officially 3 months I left home and this day started and ended badly.  Laura, the Dutch girl I have been travelling with for the past week and a half and I took an overnight bus from the Town of 1770 to get to Airlie Beach so that we could ... Read more >

Dingos, lakes and a whole lot of sand!

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 1 Dec 2008 | Views [360]

Last weekend I was on Fraser Island and had such a fab time.  I decided to do a guided tour so no issues over who was going to drive etc.  There was a total of 20 people plus the driver on my trip.  Day one - weather didn't look that good.  It was ... Read more >

Byron Bay Baby!

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 25 Nov 2008 | Views [363]

Love this place, probably the most coolest little town I have stayed in to date.  I spent a few days here, could have spent a lot longer but it was time to move on. The beaches were amazing, so clear.  A group of us hired bikes from the hostel and cycled ... Read more >

To be or not to be a surfer chick?

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 20 Nov 2008 | Views [320]

Day 1 - surfing did not go well.  I couldn't get to grips with all the info we had been told and I kept nose diving into the sea even before having the opportunity to kneel on the board let alone stand!  I thought that at least I gave it a go and this ... Read more >

Bridge, Opera House and heat!

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 13 Nov 2008 | Views [335]

Sydney is amazing.  Staying in a hostel called Wake Up which was a great location for the coach dropping me off the other morning from Melbourne, just a little trek to see the sights, it's a good job I like walking! I decided to forget that I was living ... Read more >

Survived the night bus

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 13 Nov 2008 | Views [328]

I decided that I would save a few pennies and sleep whilst travelling on the night bus from Melbourne to Sydney.  In theory I thought that 1) I would sleep and 2) I wouldn't have to pay for accommodation.  Well I didn't pay for accommodation but I so ... Read more >

Lots of layers and crampons, Franz Josef

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 31 Oct 2008 | Views [321]

The best way to see the glacier would have been to take a helicopter ride and explore it from great heights.  However, backpackers budget doesn't really stretch that far so we did a half day glacier walk. Describing it as a walk makes it sound quite ... Read more >

Snap Happy at Lake Matheson

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 31 Oct 2008 | Views [312] | Comments [1]

This has to be one of my favourite places in New Zealand.  Lake Matheson is featured in calandars of New Zealand as the reflection of Mount Cook and Mount Tasmen show in the lake, very pretty setting.  We arrived at sunset time, after spending the day ... Read more >
