Round The World

Cairns, Melbourne and Sydney

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 29 Jun 2008 | Views [485]

We reluctantly packed our bags and said goodbye to Vikki and Alison, our flatmates, then jumped in a taxi for the airport.   I think the flight to Melbourne took about 3 hours but can’t remember exactly.   We’ve taken so many flights now that I get ... Read more >

Around Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 25 May 2008 | Views [846] | Comments [1]

We checked into the Koala in Cairns mid-afternoon, which was to be our home for the next four days.   It was a horrible feeling to have to pack our bags again and go back to living in a hostel. We were sorry to see the van go as it had begun to feel ... Read more >

Airlie Beach to Cairns and Beyond

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 10 May 2008 | Views [5273]

 After returning from our Whitsunday sailing trip we spent another night in Airlie Beach then in the morning we set off for Townsville, about a 3 hour drive. Townsville is really just another city. We arrived early afternoon and spent the rest of the ... Read more >

We made our way down to the marina for 8.30 in the morning. We were shown to our boat, the Anaconda 2. Prior to becoming a tourist charter it had been a racing yacht made in the late 70s. Our skipper had been with the boat since the start and had even ... Read more >

Fraser Island

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 12 Apr 2008 | Views [2345]

We arrived in Hervey bay and checked into the YHA where you can camp.  A nice hostel that seemed quite luxary compared to what we'd become accustomed to.  We went for a walk into town and got completely drenched as it decided it to piss it down when ... Read more >

Noosa to Hervey Bay

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 12 Apr 2008 | Views [479] | Comments [1]

So when I last wrote we were in Noosa.  In the morning we took a surfing lesson which was cool.  Not as hard as I expected it to be.  Jenn and I both managed to stand up straight away although the waves were pretty gentle.  I'm sure if there'd been a ... Read more >

Sydney to Noosa (about 90minutes North of Brisbane)

We picked up the van on Thursday and eventually found our way onto the highway out of Sydney.  We covered a fair few kilometres the first day, spending the night in a place called Port Macquarie.  In the morning we visited the town's Koala hospital.  ... Read more >

We flew from San Francisco to LA on the smallest commercial plane I've ever been on.  The 14 and 1/2 hour flight from LA to Sydney went pretty quick so was not the mind numbing affair I'd been preparing myself for.  We're staying in a hostel fairly close ... Read more >

We flew in to SF from Toronto on Tuesday morning.  We're staying at the Travelodge near the city centre. It's not in the best part of town and calling a glass of OJ and a pastry a continental breakfast is a bit of a joke but I'm sure it's nicer than ... Read more >

The First Leg to Toronto

CANADA | Saturday, 8 Mar 2008 | Views [506] | Comments [1]

I'm currently sat in Jenn's parents' Condo in Pickering which is about 30min from the centre of Toronto.  The journey from Poole all went relatively smoothly. Jenn's parents collected us from the airport on Tuesday evening. There was a big storm that ... Read more >
