Hippie capital of Australia, Byron Bay was a good few days of relaxing on my final days travelling this country. Continue reading
Cities built on rivers always have a certain charm and Brisbane is no exception, althought it felt a little crowded the waterside and parks offered some breathing space. Continue reading
After a long 12 hour bus journey down the coast I arrived at Airlie Beach for a couple of days, a small resort town and gateway to the Whitsunday Islands. Continue reading
Arriving in Cairns was like returning to South East Asia in terms of the weather; very hot and humid all day and night. The city itself was also somewhat smaller and quieter than I expected and not very built up at all. Continue reading
So it’s been a while since I’ve updated, as I’ve mostly been taking things easy in Sydney, but it’s now time to get back to some blog writing. Being well looked after at my auntie and uncle’s place did allow me to get a bit lazy, but still I saw a lot over my time there. I originally attempted to find work and did spend some time applying for jobs and even interviewing for one; a company building an app for locating ‘gentleman’s services’… but that didn’t work out. After a while I settled on continuing my travels so took the time to plan ahead, more on that later. Continue reading
A somewhat delayed update from my time in Adelaide, I have in fact been in Sydney for nearly a week now but a mix of sight seeing and job hunting has kept me busy – more on that another time. Continue reading
A 1000km drive, over a 24 hour period and sleeping in the car… tiring by well worth it! The scenery on this road between Melbourne and Adelaide is simply stunning and I felt like I could stop around almost every corner to see a different view or take more photos. Continue reading
Seems like a while since my last update. I am now of course in Australia, having spent the last week or so in Melbourne. Heard a lot of good things about the city and it does indeed feel quite relaxed for it’s size but still with plenty going on. For me too my time now will be more relaxed, with no fixed plans and a lot of time ahead of me I no longer feel the need to fit lots into every day of the week. The first thing that was a shock upon arriving was I actually felt cold for the first time! Even had to get my hoody out of the bottom of my backpack as the weather here seems very changeable, going from as low as 16c from one day but up to the 30s just a day or two later. Coming from Thailand and Malaysia the other shock to the system is the cost of everything, as an example a pint in most places is around £6, not that anyone seems to drink pints…always halfs for some reason.
