We just returned from a three day three night sailing cruise on the Solway Lass, a 100 year old ship with a crazy history including participating in both world wars. Our expectations were high going in: this was THE part of the trip we were most looking ... Read more >

Twas the eve of our departure from the city we have called home for the past 5 months. Bittersweet sentiments flow through our hearts: excitement for the next leg of our journey coupled with the sadness of leaving this amazing city. Such great memories ... Read more >

Attack of the Cockroaches!

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 18 Jan 2006 | Views [1395] | Comments [3]

When conjuring up images of Australia, one might think of warm weather, beautiful beaches, laid back people, rugby, or kangaroos. Pessimists might talk of sharks and spiders and snakes. But what about the lowly cockroach? These badboys are ubiquitous ... Read more >

Justin the Shaky Lobster

Christmas in shorts and bathing suits is certainly an experience we wont soon forget. Forgotten were the toques, the mittens, the heavy winter coats. Although we did feel a bit of a yearning for the fluffy white stuff, sand and ocean are “suitable” ... Read more >

Aussie's not Australians!

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 22 Dec 2005 | Views [544] | Comments [2]

Over the past few months we have come to realize that people here love to "cuten" and shorten a lot of words. I say "cuten" b/c if you were to try to have a full conversation with all the shortened words you would sound like you were ... Read more >

Notwithstanding the tension and drama currently in the city, we are still having a fantastic time and really feel as though we are truly getting a feel for Sydney (much more so anyway than if we had only stayed in a hostel). That being said, the routine ... Read more >

On Aussie Culture

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 25 Nov 2005 | Views [751]

With nearly 3 months under our belts in the land down under, I think it's about time we reported back on the culture of these Aussies. Let us be your eyes and ears (and noses!) because as much as this is an anglo-saxon country, we can assure you that ... Read more >

Bushwalking in the Blue Mountains

Although Sydney is an awesome city, sometimes it's nice to just get out of the concrete jungle and head to a real jungle. Two hours out of Sydney by train are the Blue Mountains, so named because of the plethora of Eucalyptus trees who's leaves, when ... Read more >
