The Fountain of Wealth

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 Red Centre

Although this was a part of The Groovy Grape trip, I felt due to the subject it was worth a post all of its own.  I just didn't want to overload the previous post with too many photos! The Red Centre pretty much included the reasons why I booked this trip -  Uluru (Ayers Rock), … Continue reading The Red Centre

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

12 Apostles

The Great Ocean Road

If I could boil it down, there was just one thing (well two if you count the Neighbours tour!) that I refused to miss out on whilst in Melbourne; that was The Great Ocean Road. I'd spent a lot of the previous 9 months or so enjoying fellow traveller's photos via Facebook of it and … Continue reading The Great Ocean Road

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

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
