Away from travel for a short while and moving forward from 2008 to 2015.  These posts truly are all over the place. I'd been wanting for several months to try my hand at portrait photography.  In particular, I'd wanted to learn more about working in a studio.  For some reason though I was scared. I … Continue reading Rosa Brighid

Singapore

I finally made it. This is the last of the travel installments from 2007/2008. 10 damn years it's taken to get around to writing these blog posts.  I can't help but wonder if half of what I've noted really happened or if my mind is playing tricks on me.  What about the things that I … Continue reading Singapore

The Breakaways at dawn.

The Groovy Grape

As I saw out my time in St Kilda I frequently found myself counting pennies.  Without a job I was living on my credit card.  The question I found myself asking was pretty simple.  Did I have enough for one last blow out adventure?  The big trip I wanted to do before leaving the country … Continue reading The Groovy Grape

St Kilda Breakwater

Melbourne & St Kilda

After The Whitsundays I flew back home to Brisbane.  Most of the crew had packed and left for Melbourne themselves with the relocation of the company.  I quickly made plans that I too would head to Melbourne. In part, to meet up with those friends but also, to start exploring again.  I would be flying … Continue reading Melbourne & St Kilda

The Whitsunday Islands

Sailing around The Whitsunday Islands in early September 2008 ...

Lake Wabby

Fraser Island

It had reached early September and the Queensland days were becoming warmer.  It had been a tough few months at work and I was becoming increasingly concerned that I wasn't actually travelling any more.  Aside from a few weekend trips to Surfers or Australia Zoo it had been months since I'd explored a new place. … Continue reading Fraser Island

Brisbane

Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas

This next installment has taken a little while.  In the now, I've had to find a new place to live and let's not even talk about my working life.  Let's just say I've had plenty of other things on my mind! This next post was always going to be a tricky one to put together … Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas

Little Wategos

A Magical Mystery Tour

Following on from my last post; I would stay in Byron for a few days before heading onward to Brisbane in the search for work. After the first nights antics on the town, most of us packed our bags and headed onward in different directions.  This left me, another James and Lisa, on our own. … Continue reading A Magical Mystery Tour

Exploring around Hat Head

Waves of the East Coast

The time had finally come to leave Manly.  The past 3 months had taken their toll on my bank account (read empty!) and now I needed to find some work, otherwise I'd be heading home much earlier than originally planned. I realised Manly, especially as Summer was drawing to a close, wasn't the place I … Continue reading Waves of the East Coast

The Three Sisters

The Blue Mountains

Aside from seeing the New Year in at Sydney Harbour I only really had one other touristy desire whilst I was in the Sydney area.  That one thing was to visit The Blue Mountains. In typical fashion though, it turned out to be a bit of a last minute rush ... I delayed it right … Continue reading The Blue Mountains
