To Oz & Back Again

January 12, 2011


This post has sat midst memories and worn luggage receipts for overweight bags. The trip was busy and hectic as we were living out of hotels the entire time. Even though we’ve been back for several months, there are some nagging impressions that I can’t get out of my mind. I don’t know that my […]

G’day… a few days later.

September 17, 2010


It’s already Saturday morning and time is literally flying by. I knew this trip would feel short but seriously…. the good news is that we have been a very busy couple of nomads. (the other half is happy that he is officially “homeless”) Living from a hotel room is fun! We never have to make […]

March 31, 2009


Today I ventured into the Old Melbourne Gaol (yes you say it like “jail”).  The historical significance is th fact that Ned Kelly was jailed and hung there.  They even had a replica of his armor to try on.  Ya, he and his gang wore armor fashioned from plows.  Pretty medieval huh? I also learned […]

March 30, 2009


I had to visit this place as I’ve been staring at a photo of Cook’s Cottage on my computer wallpaper since December 2008.  To see it in person was very exciting and I now have a new wallpaper from the inside.  It was interesting to see how they used every square inch of the tiny […]
