The adventures of the Mel

Hanging out in Česko

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tuesday, 26 Aug 2008 | Views [621] | Comments [5]

I know, I know – I’m getting slack in posting. But judging by the lack of comments, I am beginning to assume that I’m either no longer interesting or that you’ve given up on me, and consequently there is less pressure on me to post as often as I can.... Read more >


Czech it out...

CZECH REPUBLIC | Thursday, 21 Aug 2008 | Views [549] | Comments [1]

The Czech Republic is nothing and everything I expected it to be. A mish-mash of Western and European cultures, the people are friendly and the language surprisingly soft. English is more widely spoken than I expected, and if not people are patient ... Read more >


Footnote...

AUSTRIA | Monday, 18 Aug 2008 | Views [672] | Comments [4]

Holy crap! I nearly forgot my summary! Here it is folks, sorry to keep you waiting. Bottom Five: 5. The cities kinda blending in together - pretty but not much variation. 4. Walking back from Cristalwelten - four hours of pain, thirst and hot!! (yeah, ... Read more >


Wien, Wien, come again....

AUSTRIA | Sunday, 17 Aug 2008 | Views [997]

I’m sitting in a fantastic little place called the Travelshack in Vienna, typing out a post whilst I wait for my toasted vegemite and cheese sandwich. Yep, I’m in Austria and I’m getting vegemite. It rocks. They also offer FREE wireless internet (cannot ... Read more >


Medieval Austria

AUSTRIA | Friday, 15 Aug 2008 | Views [1367]

It feels like it’s been ages since my last post, but in reality it has only been a week. Whether this reflects my impatience at the 30 th of August rolling around or the fact that I feel like I have so much to write, I’m not sure. Meh; column A, column ... Read more >


It's all about the maß...

AUSTRIA | Friday, 8 Aug 2008 | Views [738] | Comments [1]

Munich has been…..an adventure. Not a completely crazy one, but an adventure nonetheless. Our first full day in Munich we wandered around the central area for a short period of time, looking at the buildings and a beautiful gothic church (?) which we ... Read more >


A few days in Innsbruck

AUSTRIA | Tuesday, 5 Aug 2008 | Views [1898] | Comments [2]

I can’t believe it’s only been three days since I’ve updated. Seems like much longer. We are currently slumped in our room, rubbing our aching feet and wondering why we thought it was a good idea to cover around 35km in two days. Sure, it’s not the ... Read more >


About as exciting as Swiss banking

SWITZERLAND | Saturday, 2 Aug 2008 | Views [688] | Comments [2]

Yet again, I have squat to report. Um….we’ve been lazy and sat on our butts for a couple of days. Clearly, this has been bloody fantastic! Spent one day walking around Zurich looking at the overwhelming number of sights and interesting things, ……to ... Read more >


Bern baby, Bern

SWITZERLAND | Wednesday, 30 Jul 2008 | Views [858] | Comments [1]

Honestly don’t have too much to report – spent the past three days in Bern, and whilst it’s a nice city, having come straight from Interlaken I am ashamed to admit we’re a little bored! It’s a pretty enough city (it IS the capital, after all), ... Read more >


Hiking in the Jungfrau region

SWITZERLAND | Sunday, 27 Jul 2008 | Views [3172] | Comments [4]

What an amazing couple of days. We’ve been hiking all around the Jungfrau region near Interlaken and seen some unbelievable views. It is such a beautiful area, I feel like four days is just not enough. Yesterday we went on a completely excessive ... Read more >


Swisstopia!

SWITZERLAND | Thursday, 24 Jul 2008 | Views [859] | Comments [1]

We arrived in Geneva reasonably late at night, to discover that they don’t eat out as late as Spaniards do, so we had to contend ourselves with a gallete. This obviously means a souva. Mind you, it was tasty and a lot bigger than the ones I’m used ... Read more >


A day in Roma

ITALY | Wednesday, 23 Jul 2008 | Views [694]

Where do I begin? I have lots to tell, so I might split this into two sections. We arrived in Rome only for a couple of days so that Snuffy could put in his passport application so that we will be able to get visa applications and what not. We ... Read more >


Hasta luego, España

SPAIN | Sunday, 20 Jul 2008 | Views [837] | Comments [1]

Well, it’s time to finally farewell my time in Spanish speaking countries. After 3 months of being able to understand what people have been saying, I’ll be heading into the unknown (minus a stint here and there in Italy) and will become yet again the ... Read more >


Seviya!

SPAIN | Thursday, 17 Jul 2008 | Views [584] | Comments [1]

We’re on our way, to Madrid and happiness today. Dammit, I’m one syllable too short. We’ve just left Seville and I’m a little sad. Not only was it a fantastic city, but it also means our Spanish adventure is almost at its end. It means the end of a ... Read more >


Au revoir, Morocco

MOROCCO | Tuesday, 15 Jul 2008 | Views [1269] | Comments [1]

Well, my Moroccan adventure is over – we are back in money-consuming Spain. And it’s still damn hot. After getting ourselves a ticket to Tangier, the port town linking Morocco to Spain, Portugal and France, we essentially just retired. It was ... Read more >


Fes-tastic

MOROCCO | Saturday, 12 Jul 2008 | Views [604]

We’ve just arrived in Fes but haven’t had a chance to really explore yet. I’m also pleased to report that we have a hand-held shower for the first time. At low to mid 30s, it’s a good 10 degrees cooler here than in Marrakech which we are quite grateful.... Read more >


Amazing Marrakesh

MOROCCO | Tuesday, 8 Jul 2008 | Views [791] | Comments [1]

The different culture here just smacks you in the face, not for a moment can you fool yourself into thinking that you might be at home; even our rooms have a Moroccan feel to them. However, there are a surprising number of Australian tourists here ... Read more >


Casablanca

MOROCCO | Friday, 4 Jul 2008 | Views [879] | Comments [2]

Wow. I’ve only been in Morocco for four hours and I’m in love already. What an amazing place. Everything is such a wonderful assault on the senses and I’m only in Casablanca! Before arriving into Casablanca we did nearly lose our baggage, along ... Read more >


Valencia and its damn humidity!

SPAIN | Thursday, 3 Jul 2008 | Views [2254] | Comments [1]

Hello my pretties. I’ve just realised that I’ve officially passed the half way mark. Whilst this may be a glorious thing for you plebs, I’m torn between anticipating getting home and realising that my amazing trip is only on the downhill slide in terms ... Read more >


Barcelona baby!

SPAIN | Monday, 30 Jun 2008 | Views [791] | Comments [2]

I can’t believe four days has gone so quickly. Already we are due to leave Barcelona tomorrow. It has been a strange mix of very lazy and walking far, far too much. Every day we’ve lain in bed till at least midday, fitting in a few video calls here ... Read more >
