NY, New York!

Wednesday, 13 Feb 2013 | Views [2683]

Where on earth do I start when trying to describe and recount a two week getaway to New York, New York?! Typically I start my journal entries by going over the photos I have of what I want to write about. Upon going through my vast collection of happy ... Read more >

Farewell Portland

Wednesday, 2 May 2012 | Views [629]

6:45am - Wake up. Ahhh, I got time.  Blink once. 7:30am - Second wake up. Shit!! Oh well, I still got time. Ha ha ha! ------------ I am sure everybody has experienced this. My breakfast entailed a huge bowl of oats, a banana and a truck load ... Read more >

First timers.

Monday, 30 Apr 2012 | Views [1968] | Comments [1]

    I've begun my Sunday morning in Starbucks. I love coming here to write in my journal! Their carefully chosen jazzy songs keep us patrons here long enough to purchase a beverage, and possibly a bite to eat. Yet not too long to overcrowd ... Read more >

Thursday, 26 Apr 2012 | Views [1075] | Comments [1]

My ithchy, peeling, blistered feet and toes have been diagnosed. The lady at Walgreens instructed me this morning that I have "Athlete's Foot". I was rather proud at first, but quickly reaslised she wasn't paying me a compliment. Since spending ... Read more >

Wild wild West.... Hollywood!

Sunday, 22 Apr 2012 | Views [1831] | Comments [1]

The Gayborhood. If I had known that prior to making the hostel reservation I probably would still have gone ahead and made the booking. This place is... different? I am staying at a groovy hostel called Banana Bungalow on Fairfax and Melrose Ave. Yep, ... Read more >

When the 3 Toronto girls asked me this morning where I was from, I barely mumbled a hardly audible "Australia".  I've found myself back in Venice Beach, staying at this pretty hip hostel on the beach. I am not at all ashamed to be an Australian, ... Read more >

Young, wild and free

Tuesday, 17 Apr 2012 | Views [959]

That is pretty much how I feel at the moment. I'm not wild in the sense that all I do is party and get drunk, but I am constantly reminded of how "different" I am.  I don't actually feel young anymore... In my previous job at Vision I did, ... Read more >

Stolen goods

Wednesday, 11 Apr 2012 | Views [1049]

Wednesday 11/04/2012: Today, I was supposed to be checking out of the hostel with Simon and Victoria. In that ideal world that we all live in, we would be picking up our hippie camper van and be en route to the Yosemite. BUT, and here comes the ... Read more >

Return to San Francisco

Saturday, 7 Apr 2012 | Views [917]

When I came down this morning for the free breakfast, provided by the hostel, I was greeted with an abundance of white. No it wasn't snowing, but the four white devils appear to be core ingredients in a healthy American breakfast. White sugar, white ... Read more >

All or nothing

Thursday, 5 Apr 2012 | Views [902]

Dear Diary, How are you? It's sure feels like it's been a while, eh? I miss how close you and I used to be. You know how I'd share everything with you every day, you would just absorb it all, not judging or commenting.  It feels as if we are growing ... Read more >

Sleepy in Seattle

Monday, 2 Apr 2012 | Views [1085]

Friday nights shenanigans left me with about 3 hours of sleep. I hit the sack at around 3am, by far my latest night so far. I was leaving the "party hostel" though, and my roomies and I had some wine, which was a nice change of alcoholic ... Read more >

So after another very lengthy bus ride back yesterday (this  time  returning to the city of Angels - why is it called that? Can anyone tell me? Personally I don't see much angelic about the place). Anyways, I got up yesterday and went to Johns gym ... Read more >

Just breathe... and relax!

Sunday, 4 Mar 2012 | Views [949] | Comments [2]

That is what I did today, sort of. I got my butt out of bed at 7:30am (I woke up at 7am, but rolled around for half hour). John asked me if I would like to take part in a run group with him, who were meeting at 8:30am. The chance to show off my quick ... Read more >

That's all I can say after an amazing day in a beautiful city. San Francisco is beyond words. Sure I can tell you how great it is, but you have got to check it out for yourself. Anyhow, I need to backtrack a bit before I reminisce over The City by the ... Read more >

The wheels on the bus go round and round

Friday, 2 Mar 2012 | Views [506]

I think I've spent over half my American $$ on bus fares! Well I would have if I didn't pull the "oh-I'm-lost-and-foreign" card.  I awoke yesterday hungry for adventure. I packed my bag with a few shitty peanut butter and jam sambos and ... Read more >

Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [522] | Comments [2]

It feels like it has been a while since I wrote anything down. So I'm going to work my way backwards... Last night I decided to go on an organised pub crawl with the hostel. It started off a bit lame, though I met some great people from the hostel ... Read more >

The journey begins... Slowly

Tuesday, 28 Feb 2012 | Views [648] | Comments [2]

The tedious 13.5 hour journey over some deep blue sea was more comforting than I originally anticipated. I was bumped up to premium economy and gee wiz, the extra leg space does count for something (thank you Gordon). I was surrounded by gay flight ... Read more >
