Recent Dining

"Have you ever been to Nomad?", a colleague asked me the other day. What followed was a passionate conversation, as we extolled the benefits of the restaurant in Surry Hills, which I've been to a few times, though not recently. This review, takes you back to when my friends Sandra and Robert were visiting, and... Continue Reading →

Sydney Photowalk

You remember how "in the olden days" you were limited by the number of photographs you could take on a roll of film? It was generally 12, 24 or 36. I remember when a roll of 36 film was expensive to buy, and even more expensive to process. As a child, I would generally only... Continue Reading →

Swedish Travel Tips

In one months time, I'll be on a plane, headed to Stockholm. "What, again?", I hear you ask. Since 2008, I have visited Sweden (in particular, Stockholm) on several occasions. By my reckoning, I’ve “lived there” for almost six months. I really like the country, have made some friends there, and whenever there's a few... Continue Reading →

Bundeena Day Trip

If you've never been to Bundeena in Sydney's South, I'd highly recommend it. You can catch a train to Cronulla, and then take the ferry across. Or, like us, you could always drive, taking in the terrific Audley Weir. I'm home now, after a lovely day walking along the beach with a friend. As you'll... Continue Reading →

Light Rail Construction

For most people photographs of the construction of a light-rail (tram) aren't that interesting. For me, they are, especially as it's happening in my neighbourhood, and will continue to do so for the next 12-18 months. For the most part, it's still lots of photographs of holes in the ground, but eventually it will get... Continue Reading →

War Bride

My latest family history project is trying to connect with the story of my cousin, Lyla Brown/Curtis, who married an American soldier in the 1940s, and who went to live in the US. I remember briefly speaking on the phone with her after she arrived back from living in the United States. Presumably long dead... Continue Reading →

Nepal in Sydney

"Have you ever been to Nepal", a man asked me this afternoon. "No", I told him, adding, "I think I'd like to, though."  I hadn't realised there was such a large community of people from Nepal, living in Sydney. I also hadn't realised there was a festival until a friend sent me a text yesterday,... Continue Reading →

Lismore Floods

I don't really know what to say about the floods in Lismore, except they've had a deep impact on me, even though I'm many hundreds of kilometres away, and even though for the most part, I'm reasonably relaxed about floods at home, as I have written previously. "Yeah the river's up, but it's nothing to... Continue Reading →

Camera Roll

Caught up in the dailies, so a little busy for a "proper blog", though I hope to find time on the weekend. In the meantime, here's a few recent photographs with some brief comments. Also... Start spreading the news, I'm leaving in May. I'm gonna be a part of it, Stockholm, Stockholm. Just as things... Continue Reading →

Classic Radio Drama

Though there's a temptation to think the days of radio drama are long dead, that's not the case. As a child growing up in the 70s/80s, comedy programs like Chuck Chunder, How Green Was My Cactus etc, continued to be a daily ritual for me. Later in the morning, mum would listen to The Castlereagh... Continue Reading →

Weekend in Katoomba

I reached the conclusion about half way through last week I needed some "country air". Though I could have booked a flight home to Lismore, I concluded the answer to my dilemma was closer than I thought. Only two hours away by train, I booked a single room (upgraded to a double) in a hostel... Continue Reading →
