How lucky am I to have landed up going to Australia Zoo on Steve Irwin Day.  When I found out it was Steve Irwin day I did think it was going to be jam packed & not so enjoyable as it turned out it was the best possible day that I could have gone ... Read more >

Reconnecting in Hervey Bay

Sunday, 9 Nov 2008 | Views [402]

Hervey Bay had little to do with seeing the place & much more to do with meeting up with family that I have not seen for an age which turned out to be absolutely stunning.  As my aunt & uncle had a student/teacher from China staying with them ... Read more >

Sunday, 2 Nov 2008 | Views [268]

First stop was Townsville - the gateway to Magnetic Island which gave me my first taste of carrying my backpack as I had about a 15 minute walk (turned into a 30 minute walk because I went the wrong way & got a little confused) to get to my yucky ... Read more >

The Amazing City that is Sydney

Tuesday, 14 Oct 2008 | Views [257]

Well I got to Sydney and had the pleasure of staying at a friends flat (they were unfortunately in Perth & New Zealand so I never got to see either of them which was a crying shame) but it meant that I got my own space for 3 nights.  At this point ... Read more >
