The Final Leg

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 May 2008 | Views [458] | Comments [2]

Our final entry (or not) but one dominated by family jokes and quirkiness. Slightly tanned from our Tongan adventures (although turning pale rapidly following a week of pacific rain) we travelled to Sydney for a quick Aussie encounter before ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 16 Apr 2008 | Views [592] | Comments [1]

Having given NG at least a weeks to bask in his self pride I thought it time I told about everything else we have been up to in the last few days.  I think he left you in Queenstown, one of the most awesome towns we have been to in New Zealand.  It has ... Read more >

The JUMP!!!

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 10 Apr 2008 | Views [621] | Comments [3]

For those of you who don't know the desire to jump out of an aeroplane has been one of mine for at least 20 years. My grandfather was shot down during the war and said that parachuting was an amazing experience and that got me hooked. 'The day' arrived ... Read more >

For those of you thinking that I had sold out and become a sad git, chasing photos with celebs, I would like to point out that it was Suze who stole Collingwood's beer and was grabbing the players for photos. Anyway after the excitement of the Test ... Read more >

So you will notice our new photo gallery.  These are a few photos from the small happy snapper camera we brought with us for those, 'don't want to stand out in a crowd with our big camera' moments.  Bridget, for Christmas, also provides us with a 'Quick ... Read more >

More Fortune!!!

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 28 Mar 2008 | Views [610] | Comments [2]

So post match, given the timing, we headed back to our campsite for a little snooze and interneting (hence the last posting).  A quick BBQ and change of clothes later, we headed to THE bar where the Barmy Army were located.  The atmosphere was electric.... Read more >

Fame and Fortune

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 26 Mar 2008 | Views [479] | Comments [2]

The last 5 days have been fantastic. The cricket aside, it has been crazy receiving all of your messages highlighting the sightings of us on the TV. At times it has felt sightly 'Big Brother' esk with for example being asked 'what I was taking photos ... Read more >

CHILE | Friday, 14 Mar 2008 | Views [595] | Comments [7]

So from San Juan we had the most awesome drive ever.  We journeyed North, then West and finally South (deliberately so that we could drive through this incredible Valley).  The mountains were enormous, some of them snow capped and very dry, shades of ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 9 Mar 2008 | Views [789] | Comments [1]

Following our hectic time in Buenos Aires we headed, on a horrible bus, out of the city for 2 hours to a place called 'San Antonio de Arieco'.  This had been recommended to us by a couple of Dutch guys we met in Bolivia.  This is Gaucho country; the ... Read more >

Buenos Aires

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 24 Feb 2008 | Views [627] | Comments [3]

Hola from Buenos Aires.  This city is gorgeous.  It reminds me of Paris, meandering down the Champs Elysees and through narrow streets with beautiful tall buildings on either side adorned with elaborate balconies and stonework.  Today we spent the afternoon ... Read more >

Whoop Whoop,  Big it up for us winning tonight.  Brilliant, even if I had to contend with sporadic text messages from T, it sounds like a good game.  Loved hearing the French were in the Sin Bin!  As usual Nigel still finds a smug comeback and now ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Wednesday, 20 Feb 2008 | Views [1739] | Comments [3]

We set out on our first serious bus journeyheading for the Iguazu Falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina, 15 hours. The journey was relatively comfortable as all seats recline and have more leg room than most planes. However the whole journey was ... Read more >
