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 →

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 →

Visiting Nimbin

Almost everyone who has ever visited Nimbin as a tourist will regale you with a story of how they were walking down the main street of Nimbin and were approached, and were asked if they wanted to buy some marijuana. It's almost a badge of honour for some. But looking back on my forty-something years... Continue Reading →

Sydney Harbour Cruise

Though I've been on many ferries over the 20+ years I've lived in Sydney, for the first time EVER I went on a cruise of Sydney Harbour today.  For $39, a group of friends and I (including visitors from the US), enjoyed two hours cruising the harbour. The cruise included a complimentary glass of sparkling... Continue Reading →

Back in Brisbane

The sunrise over Brisbane on Monday was really beautiful. Even the city's ugly buildings looked good against the backdrop. I wouldn't normally have been up and about so early, but I'd woken at 4.00am Brisbane time. Most days I wake at about 5.00am, but because of the change between daylight saving time and regular time... Continue Reading →

Hobart Friday

Late this afternoon I was faced with a choice: would I go for a swim, or would I go for a beer? The Hobart Aquatic Centre is right across the road from the ABC. Pubs are a little further away. It was a case of convenience vs temptation. Two seconds later, I'd made my choice.... Continue Reading →

Flying in to Sydney

When I fly in to Sydney, most of the time it's over the oil refineries of Kernel. It's always such a pleasure to fly in a different way, taking in views of Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. This was the view on Thursday afternoon/evening on a Virgin flight. Bliss.

Canberra

When you talk to people about Canberra there are often a lot of negative stereotypes. There's the political thing, of course. But there's also a perception that it's dull, suburban etc. In contrast, I have really positive views of Canberra. I lived and worked in Canberra for a while, and usually visit once or twice...

Red Chilli

Having previously written a few times about Sydney's Red Chilli restaurant, I was super excited to discover one in Canberra too. Over a bottle of wine and great conversation, a colleague/friend and I enjoyed a most excellent dinner there. Ham, eggplant, fish. All brilliant. Highly recommended (AGAIN).
