World Travel 2013-2014, Sunset in Sydney

We were off to China! Well almost. First stop was a night in Sydney as our tour group would fly out from Sydney to Beijing, so we decided to head there a day earlier to do a little bit of sight seeing. Takeshi and I have both been to Sydney before so we didn’t do …

World Travel 2013-2014, A Day in Canberra

Ah the excitement. After a two month break back home, we were off again… to Canberra. Not exactly my first choice of destination but it is where the Chinese visa centre was located and if I wanted to leave the country before mid October we would have to head there in person. Fortunately it was …

Road Trip to Uluru 2010, In the Outback

So it’s been a long time this trip, but seeing as we’re on break in Australia at the moment from our World Travels I thought I’d dig out some old photos. In 2010, Takeshi and I did a bit of a road trip from Adelaide up to Alice Springs to visit Uluru. It was certainly …

World Travel 2013-2014, Passing Myponga Reservoir

On the way back to Adelaide from Kangaroo Island, Dad and I stopped off at Myponga Reservoir along the way. It’s funny how I have travelled the main road from Adelaide to Cape Jervis so many times over the years, but I haven’t seen much of the towns or sights along the way. So this …

World Travel 2013-2014, A Week on Kangaroo Island

The past week was rather relaxing as I spent a week on Kangaroo Island. It was nice to visit home again, especially after a long break away. We were very lucky. Although the weather wasn’t brilliant the whole week, we did manage to see at least two Southern Right Whales and a seal go cruising …

Brisbane 2013, Crickey! It’s Australia Zoo

For one of the days we spent in Brisbane, Takeshi was very keen to head out to Australia Zoo and so out we drove for a good hour and a half one way (!). It’s a very nicely laid out zoo, with lots of space in each of the enclosures for the animals. There were …

Brisbane 2013, City Centre

We were in Brisbane in early October this year for the annual Taekwondo Festival, and as we were travelling to Brisbane we decided to extend our stay a bit and see some of the sights. While I had travelled to Brisbane for work before, Takeshi and I hadn’t visited there before for a non work …

Hiking Morialta Falls

Yesterday we were out hiking in Morialta Conservation Park, which is a beautiful park only 10km north east of Adelaide. We spent 2 hours walking roughly 4 or so kilometers along the First and Second Fall walks, which was great fun but maybe not such a great idea after 3 1/2 hours of martial arts …
