Ecco the Dolphin(s)

The Farseers over at the Australian Weather News had warned us that our weekend in Jervis Bay would be a wash out. Typical Easter Weekend weather we were told. With that in mind we planned our Saturday accordingly. Huskisson was the largest town in the area and had a motley collection of cafes, shops, museums […]

Bay of Jervis

So it’s the Spring Break weekend, or as Kevin Bridges (and rest of the world for that matter) calls it – the Easter Holidays, and we decided to do a road trip instead of flying somewhere. Our Destination would be Jervis Bay a mere 200 km to our south, the equivalent of Glasgow to Penrith or […]

Year of the Kangaroo

8th August 2015 So there it is. 12 Months of travelling around and living in Australia. So much done but so so much more still to do. It only feels like yesterday that we arrived off the plane in Perth in search of adventure and (after 7 months in Asia), wine and cheese! What started […]
