Oh dear. I don’t think Byron is the place for me. After getting off the train at the end of the line in a place called casino I waited for my coach connection to Byron. There were some interesting characters around (a guy on the train was in real distress going up and down the [...]

Well I’m on the train headed for byron bay, having left the peaceful climbs of the surfaris retreat and said my goodbyes to the gang. I have well and truly rejoined the real world! 6 hour journey on train then bus. As I got on so did a single mum and her two most badly [...]

So it’s been a couple of days since I wrote anything. It was only a matter of time before I dropped off the ball with this blogging malarky and to be honest I lasted a lot longer than I thought I would! But after Sydney where I found time to write when I sat on [...]

Manly was absolutely heaving with people yesterday so after meeting Simone we quickly made our way round the Coastal path to shelly beach. Much quieter and more chilled it was a lovely place to sit in the afternoon sun chilling out and watching the world go by. After a little while basking in the cooling [...]

I’m sat in the uber busy ferry to manly, quite a different experience to the quiet small boat to karruba point. Off for another stroll along the coast, a perfect destination for the afternoon having yet more incredible weather  
This morning was the much recommended Sydney harbour bridge climb. And yes, I can now [...]

Well another hectic day yesterday and sadly this is my last day in Sydney (only for now anyway, I hope) So drinks on Friday night were good, a little bar called ’small bar’ was the destination and with a group of not so small personalitied peeps from simone’s work. Including Tanya, who introduced me to [...]

Phew what a day! My ears finally unpopped, but have popped again as I write this on my train home. I have well and truly broken in my walking shoes – lots and lots of walking today, not particularly off the beaten track, but very enjoyable nonetheless. If I’d had more time and a walking [...]

Blue mountains wow. Uk black mountains it ain’t. My ears have been muffled for the last hour of the train journey and the views are spectacular. I’m afraid I’m only going to have the time for the most touristy of things here, and can’t exactly embark on a demanding bush walk as I’m on my [...]

Jet lag 2: Eleanor 1
Well so much for my early start this morning. Combo of a late night due to the show at the opera house then chatting to Simone about Australian football over a glass of NSW Shiraz (very nice I have to say – the wine not the football talk!). She also informed [...]

Well the zoo certainly cured any phobia of birds that may have been developing due to the flooding I experienced! (I.e. There were lots of them!) Funnily enough none of them tried to attack me though! It was an amazing location, built into a hill on the coast, with fantastic views of the harbour. Was [...]
