    Australia: Sydney, New South Wales

    Sydney…..where to start with Sydney? Some people love Sydney, some people hate Sydney. The Marmite of Australia if you will. I myself aired on the side of loving it! Our apartment block (The Meriton Serviced Apartments Campbell Street) was right in the middle of Thai Town, bordering China Town and right opposite the Capitol Theatre (which is currently showing Wicked – saw it on Broadway…

    Australia: The Southport Spit, Gold Coast

    I feel like I’m letting you into a secret so I feel very guilty about writing this post. When I used to think about the Gold Coast I’d think about Surfers Paradise Beach, probably because it’s the one everyone goes to when they visit the Gold Coast. Without doubt it is clean with soft sand and have lots of facilities BUT it is busy and full…

    Australia: 24 Hours in Byron Bay, New South Wales

    Byron Bay oh Byron Bay……how I dream of Byron Bay. We arrived late afternoon into Byron Bay and the second we did I instantly became ‘chilled out’. Following a 3 hour drive in our immaculate Kombi Ronnie we were ready for a leg stretch and a beer. I had tried to pre-book a campsite from the UK but it seemed that all the campsites within…

    Australia: Australia Zoo!

    Just a quick post about a great day you can have whether you are staying on the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane…….. I’ve always been a fan of animals, preferably in the wild where possible. I used to think all zoos were there to look after and care for animals that weren’t able to look after themselves in the wild and also to facilitate breeding programmes…

    Australia: Bustling Brisbane

    I’ll be honest, I didn’t like Brisbane…..to start with. Having spent time in Melbourne and touring the Great Ocean Road I found Brisbane completely different and it took me a day or so to get to grips with this city but once I had I loved every minute. We arrived in Brisbane mid-afternoon and checked into our accommodation – the Meriton Serviced Apartments on Herschel…

    USA: New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas, Nevada

    Ah, Las Vegas….Disneyworld for adults! And in my opinion one of the craziest and most awesome places in the world.  I’d never been to Vegas before my trip in December 2011 but had high expectations for my time there. The pictures of Vegas on the internet and in the guidebooks certainly do not do the manmade wonderland in the middle of a desert justice. We…

    2015 Itinerary

    ‘ Working 9 to 5 what a way to make a livin’…………….it’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it’ – good old Dolly got that right but unfortunately some of us have to I’m afraid to be able to travel and do fun stuff. I work full-time and only get 32 days holiday a year (plus weekends and English Bank Holidays of course).…

    Australia: The Grampians National Park (Halls Gap), Victoria

    With the Great Ocean Road and Warrnambool in our rearview mirror of our trusty Kombi Gracie, Mr ESLT and I hit the road again this time our destination was Halls Gap in the Grampians National Park. The distance between Warrnambool and Halls Gap is 159km and google maps reliably informed me that the journey should take 2 hours and 13 minutes. Unfortunately, I did not factor…

    Australia: DAY 3/3, Great Ocean Road, Victoria (Port Campbell – Warrnambool)

    Previously: Day 2/3 – Great Ocean Road, Victoria (Lorne – Port Campbell DAY 3 Our final day on the Great Ocean Road and what a day it was. The sun was shining, the road was empty and the views were magnificent. We had to be in Warrnambool by lunch time so we got up early, packed our backpacks and hit the road. The first stop we…

    Australia: DAY 2/3, Great Ocean Road, Victoria (Lorne – Port Campbell)

    Previously: DAY 1/3 – Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia (Torquay – Lorne) DAY 2 The first port of call today was Erskine Falls. Erskine Falls is at the end of Erskine Falls Road 10km north-west of Lorne. There is a viewing point above the falls and a walking track, steep in places which leads to the base of the falls. The falls cascade over one of the…

    Australia: DAY 1/3 – Great Ocean Road, Victoria (Torquay – Lorne)

    Driving the Great Ocean Road, Australia in a 1970’s VW campervan had always been on my bucket list. Well …..in September 2014 I was lucky enough to be able to cross it off my list! As soon as we had booked the international flights from the UK to Australia I started researching VW campervans (kombis) in and around Melbourne so we could take our trip. We, therefore,…

    Australia: St. Kilda

    Before our trip to Australia, a number of friends had recommended taking a day to visit St Kilda and I’m sure glad we did. St Kilda is a suburb of Melbourne approximately 6km from the City Centre. We took a tram from the Southbank down to St Kilda which only took about 20 minutes. Getting a tram was easy – just remember to buy your Myki…

    Australia: Little Penguin Parade Evening Tour, Phillip Island

    I love animals and I  love animals in the wild even more so when I saw that going to see wild penguins in their natural habitat was an option whilst visiting Melbourne I jumped at the chance. I booked 2 tickets for this attraction through Viator for £95.18 (which included a 50% discount). The little penguins are the smallest species of penguin in the world growing…

    Australia: Eureka Skydeck 88, Melbourne

    The Eureka Skydeck 88 is located on the Southbank of Melbourne one block back from the Yarra River. It is located on Riverside Quay next to the Travelodge hotel and a 2-minute walk from the Langham. It is the tallest building in Melbourne (2.97.3 metres) therefore one of the first you will see jutting from the impressive skyline as you enter the city by road. The observation…

    Australia: Magnificent Melbourne!

    Melbourne, Melbourne, Melbourne – where to start? After travelling for 30 odd hours from Beverley, East Yorkshire to the other side of the world I wanted…… I needed to be greeted by something amazing, bordering on magical and Melbourne did not disappoint. We went mid-September and knew we were taking a gamble with the weather we may encounter. Unfortunately, the weather gods were not on our…
