Leaving Melbourne

Wednesday, 21 Jul 2010 | Views [556]

The Australian visas expires tomorrow and we have to go back to the UK. Not because we're moving back, but for a wedding! Rich's older bro is tying the knot and we're heading back to the UK on 19th August. But, that gives us four weeks in between, ... Read more >

Spa Country

After all our hard work, Christmas and New Years celebrations…we decide to treat ourselves to a few days in the spa country. The Daylesford/Hepburn area is about an hours drive away and its renowned for its number of spas and hot springs. It’s the ... Read more >

Great Ocean Road

Friday, 8 Jan 2010 | Views [522]

This is supposed to be the most scenic drive in the world or so the locals will have you believe. We set out to the Great Ocean Road, early in the morning. It takes us about 1.5 hrs to get to Torquay, the start of the drive. Torquay is renowned ... Read more >

Summer Holiday

Wednesday, 6 Jan 2010 | Views [573]

We've been working at a place together for the past few months - a salary packaging place in town. Our role is to try and convince people to lease a car through their package and get tax benefits. As we’re calling people at their work, our company ... Read more >

NYE 2009

Thursday, 31 Dec 2009 | Views [495]

New Years Eve 2009: the end of the Noughties. I'm glad actually - I hate that name. Alicia was very keen to go to Sydney but it's ridiculously expensive and I'm not the biggest fan of NYE anyway. We opt instead for a night in Melbourne with a few ... Read more >

Cricket & Movies

Wednesday, 30 Dec 2009 | Views [509]

A big tradition here for Boxing Day is the Boxing Day cricket test match between Australia and whoever is touring at the MCG. Every four years it's England competing for the famous Ashes. This year it's Pakistan. Frankly, it's a hard-sell on Alicia ... Read more >

Christmas Downunder

Friday, 25 Dec 2009 | Views [500]

So...no snow, no turkey, no glass of port. What we do have is a warm sunny day, an overflowing barbecue, and an ice bucket full of beer. And after lunch, instead of a game of Trivial Pursuit, we'll be playing a game of street cricket. It's an Australian ... Read more >

Sydney CBD, Manly & The Rocks

Saturday, 28 Nov 2009 | Views [331]

We start the day a bit earlier than we managed to yesterday and this gives us time to jump on a bus into Sydney’s CBD (city business district) before we've even had lunch! It's immediately obvious how different this city is from Melbourne - there's ... Read more >

In & Around Bondi

Friday, 27 Nov 2009 | Views [446]

We've got a lot of Sydney to see and we're only here for a couple of days so we need to get moving. Unfortunately, the night before is still taking its toll and it's not until after lunch that we actually leave the house. As we're staying in Bondi, ... Read more >

Rich's Birthday in Sydney

With our mates Ben and Ern coming over from London, and my birthday on the horizon, it seems to be the perfect time to plan a trip to Sydney. Plus, through his extensive contacts in the TV business, Ally says he can get us tickets to the after party ... Read more >

Life in Melbourne

Wednesday, 30 Sep 2009 | Views [449]

We've been in Melbs for a couple of months now and we're ecstatic to see that the weather is (slowly) starting to heat up. By now we've learned what it means to be true Melbournians. We've explored the bars and cafes of the back streets of the ... Read more >

Getting started in Australia

Monday, 31 Aug 2009 | Views [359]

We get into the swing of things pretty quickly in Oz. Within 4 weeks of arriving, we've explored the city, found a flat, started working, AND learned the lingo. For the last one, there's a simple tip: add an 'o' to the end of pretty much any word. ... Read more >

Chilly Down Unda

Wednesday, 22 Jul 2009 | Views [424]

We've finally made it to the last country on the first leg of our world tour! We're in Oz!! Our plane lands in Melbourne around 11pm and as we're exiting the plane, we are slapped in the face with unbelievably cold winds. What's going on? This is ... Read more >
