Eat in the street! Let’s make it pozible.

One of my favourite things about Asia is the food. And anyone who has spent any time there will know the best place to eat – is on the street. The pozibility of bringing this phenomena to Australia is pretty exciting. When I first heard of the Street Food Australia (SFA) campaign, I immediately loved Read More

Becoming a yes man – Driving in Saigon

If you talk to anyone who’s visited Vietnam, one of the first things they will mention is the traffic (just type ‘Saigon traffic’ ¬†into YouTube and you’ll find countless videos). To say that traffic is mental would be a bit of an understatement. There are motorbikes everywhere, on the sidewalk, inside houses and on the Read More

Who ya gonna call? – TOADBUSTERS!

Becoming a yes man/woman is part of a series of posts that will take a look at some of the things that we have said ‘YES’ to that we would normally have said ‘NO’. There aren’t many ghosts floating around Kununurra but you can be guaranteed to see a few cane toads knocking about that’s Read More

Becoming a yes man…teaching English

Becoming a yes man is part of a series of posts that will take a look at some of the things that we have said ‘YES’ to that we would normally have said ‘NO’. I’ve always been the adventurous type and usually pride myself on trying new things. This is especially true when it comes Read More

Hokitika Haunted House – The Seaview Asylum and Gaol

We have stayed in quite a few dodgy accommodations during our trip, some dirty, some noisy, some too hot, but there was one place in the sleepy seaside town of Hokitika in South Island New Zealand that was particularly memorable. Not because it was dirty, or even dodgy, but it was just plain spooky. It Read More

Photo of the Week: Outback Sunset

During my time working in regional Western Australia I was lucky enough to be treated to this sunset on a daily basis. I never got bored of leaving work each evening and being treated to the above sunset. The perfect way to end the working day.

New Zealand – Fun, friendly, epic

After the devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake that hit Christchurch on 22 February 2011, I had been meaning to blog about the amazing month we had spent in New Zealand in January, prior to the earthquake. Now 6 months on from the earthquake and the upcoming Rugby World Cup in NZ, I think it’s about time Read More

Great Barrier Reef Photo Blog

Diving the Great Barrier Reef is high on many lists of must do things before you die. It was also high on my own personal list of must do things. Upon arriving in Cairns, I was quick to scout around all the dive shops to suss out the best trips. There were plenty of trips Read More

An attack of the reverse culture shock

When we first set out on our trip, I was looking forward to having my first real culture shock.  To a certain extent, our first stop Hong Kong was our first experience, mainly with the food. We had somewhat naively expected the food to be like our local Chinese takeaway at home. This was not Read More

Taking the road well travelled

Travelling gives you the luxury of meeting new people. Before embarking on a trip, hope and pray you like the people you do meet because it’s not going to be the last you see of them. I don’t know if it is because we cling to our photocopied or otherwise ligit copies of Lonely Planet Read More
