Living life like a re-run.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 12 Jan 2015 | Views [852]

December 31 st 2014 8:36pm. Such an unusual time to remember that I have an avid audience starved of my wordy goodness, (citation needed). And while the actual goodness of my ramblings is very much open to debate, there is no doubting that I have a ... Read more >

Around the country in 80 beers.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 15 Oct 2013 | Views [1191]

Often times life is just so routine that writing a journal is like trying to describe honey to a bee. Then there is a whirlwind of action and you feel like you should be writing a movie script rather than a travel blog. So, the last few months haven't ... Read more >

Caught up in the pass-through

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 29 Apr 2012 | Views [1539]

Broome has never looked so appealing. When viewed from 3,000kms away, it seems very much like the quintessential oasis in the desert. The constant sunshine, palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze, time slowing down like ... Read more >

I'm still alive.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 Jul 2011 | Views [1113] | Comments [1]

After another 8 month sabbatical, sitting down to write is like sex with a girlfriend you haven't seen in a long time. You know its good, and you really enjoy it but you just can't seem to do it properly. You then stammer out ... Read more >

Frangelico nights

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 21 Aug 2010 | Views [1487]

As another utopian dry season twilight silences the usual fun and frivolity of communal life in the staff crap shack, I use the rare moments of peace to finally bring this journal up to date. I take another long slurp of my frangelico and ... Read more >

Same same but different.

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010 | Views [2094] | Comments [1]

I'm working up a sweat just thinking about what to write. That's not because I'm whipping my brain like a pack horse, it's just a constant by-product of life in Broome. Compared to Hobart, it's like living inside an active volcano. Given that ... Read more >

Alcohol and antiques.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 18 May 2010 | Views [1026]

Time has come for the winter migration. The chill slid into Hobart like the stranger who steals your seat at the bar, all bright eyes and cheesey smile. The trees decided not to fight the cold and burnt their leaves off in a fiery display of natures' ... Read more >

The cold winds of change.

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 21 Apr 2010 | Views [1227]

I was checking in for my flight from Port Macquarie to Melbourne. The kind lady tagging my luggage assumed that I would happily declare anything illegal or dangerous I was smuggling. I was two hours early for the flight and panting like being ... Read more >

Television is the next stage for my dribble.

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 5 Feb 2010 | Views [1187] | Comments [1]

One minute a nobody; a TV star the next. After my brush with fame is televised this Sunday morning, (Insiders ABC 9am) I'll be a nobody again. Unless some careful editing manages to portray me as perhaps, weatherman potential. I fear it may portray ... Read more >

Sunshine, suds and snot in Salamanca Square.

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 27 Jan 2010 | Views [1333]

Isn't life amazing? Such a claim may seem like a great self-help book title, or that I've been watching too many nature documentaries again, but its the only way I can summarise my last week. I've gone from clueless and uncommitted to stable ... Read more >

The Apple Isle tempts me away from paradise.

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 13 Dec 2009 | Views [993] | Comments [1]

An old biblical saying goes 'He who bores of paradise, is indeed an idiot, or loves apples!' Old is a relative term seeing as I made up that saying, just like someone else probably made up the Bible, but it is most appropriate to my decision to leave ... Read more >

A lot can change in three weeks.

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 5 Nov 2009 | Views [921]

I'm back in Broome. My house is full of strangers. The weather is a hot liquid overcoat. I am no longer a underwater porcelain technician. All of these facts painted a rather scary picture on my return home. Particularly with the financial freedom ... Read more >

I feel like butter! Why? Because I am on a roll!

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 4 May 2009 | Views [1407]

I'm worried that I'll appear boastful if I continue to write about just how good life is in Broome. Not that the place is exclusively my domain, as the rapid increase in tourist numbers can attest to. This party has an open invitation and I gladly ... Read more >

Finding all the good things I hadn't started searching for yet.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 14 Apr 2009 | Views [1130]

So I got myself a job as a 'dishy'. Not exactly evolving in the vocational scheme of things. Particularly when it's in a brewery, a place that offers the chance of rapid intellectual devolving. Aside from the universe again providing exactly what I ... Read more >

I should have thrown some dry, smoked and dirty grapes over my left shoulder.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 30 Mar 2009 | Views [2154]

Farmers should quake whenever they see me approach their fields. I have the cursed touch of Midas' evil twin. All harvesting work I do carves through profits like a one man economic wrecking ball. I am the best thing to happen to any farms ... Read more >

Four days in the fields, to face plants, to fortuitous free time

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 21 Feb 2009 | Views [1303]

Four days of work is a good enough reason to have the whole following week off. It's not by choice, but it fits in so nicely with my plans that I cannot believe my subconscious desires did not play a part in it becoming a ... Read more >

The hazy daze of my last days.

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 10 Dec 2008 | Views [2459]

The last few weeks of my Spring time adventure in Bowen have passed in a blur of activity and hijinx. Sometimes it's better to just experience life as it happens rather than seeing it unfold from behind a camera lens or writers pen. Sometimes I'm ... Read more >

The perils of beer in glass bottles.

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 12 Nov 2008 | Views [1506] | Comments [1]

6 night shifts in a row. A sudden and significant increase in temperature. Gauge measures 28.5 degrees in our dorm at 6am. Sleeping in daylight is 3 to 5 hours of fitful napping, punctuated by tossing, a constant sheen of sweat and loud room mates ... Read more >

Manning the fire hose.

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 1 Nov 2008 | Views [2063]

Isn't it funny how your opinion of a place improves when your workload changes from boot camp to boy scouts. One minute I am legging it to and fro like I've just discovered the ability to walk, and the next, I am lounging around working on my tan.... Read more >

Black & Gold budget envy.

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 19 Oct 2008 | Views [1689] | Comments [1]

Literary productivity has dipped recently as hard work and hedonistic pleasures have superseded creative output and coherent thought. Some cosmic governing body decreed that frivolity and fortune seeking was my new karmic currency after over ... Read more >
