Beautiful Winter Day

Despite the crap weather we've had over the last few weeks, Sydney really turned it on today. It was a beautiful day - warm, but not too warm; cool, but not too cool - and so Sue and I spent the afternoon wandering around the Royal Botanic Gardens. In between, we took in a tour...

Sydney Summer

For the last few days I've been needing an "excuse" to try out my new camera. For the first couple of days the sky has been a little grey. But even then, as the weather improved, and with good intentions, I was waylaid on another by colleagues to have a drink at a funky inner... Continue Reading →

Clovelly Beach

As I made my way down to the beach, I suddenly realised (through the unfamiliarity of the landscape) I'd never visited Clovelly Beach before. Sure, I've been for quite a few (mostly birthday) lunches at the Clovelly Hotel before, but never the beach. I was at the pub again today for a terrific birthday lunch... Continue Reading →

45 Minutes in Ballina

After the glorious weather of the last few days, I've arrived back in Sydney to a thunderstorm. I like thunderstorms, by the way. I went in to the Lismore office for work today and got a remarkable amount done. I guess that's always the way when you're out of your regular workspace. Mid afternoon, I... Continue Reading →

Extreme Iceland

There was a point half way through the day when I couldn't stop giggling. Along with the rest of the tour group, I was standing on a beach on the south east coast of Iceland. We were all very cold and it was snowing. The on-line brochure and accompanying research I'd done before-hand suggested clear... Continue Reading →

Temperamental Sydney

I left the house reasonably early today, and didn't get home until about ten-thirty tonight. When I left the house, it was fine and sunny and I was wearing shorts, thongs and a polo-shirt; and when I arrived home, I was still wearing shorts, thongs and a polo-shirt, but Sydney was in the midst of...

Stir Crazy in Sydney

It's been a really busy week. Well, a really busy several weeks, which explains my lack of posting lately. I'm finding that I'm coming home most nights mentally and physically exhausted and collapsing on the couch. I've also been working on the weekends, and so my Saturday has been pretty much collapse on the couch... Continue Reading →

Stockholm Weather

After a couple of months of travel planning, the reality of my forthcoming trip to Sweden ramped up a few notches today. Sometime last week I installed a number of "Swedish Apps" on my mobile phone, includng one which lists the 4-day weather forecast for Sweden. And today, for the first time, it actually meant...

Stormy Weather

In an otherwise busy, busy day at work - one where I barely spent five minutes looking away from my computer - I looked briefly out my window. And there, to my surprise, was a rather spectacular Sydney skyline. Within minutes, I had a group of colleagues in my office taking advantage of the view,... Continue Reading →
