AUSTRALIA | Fri, 9 Jan 2015 | By a_and_a | Views [111] | Comments [1]

Well, I know you are all suffering through cold and snow so it seems silly to complain about rain, but let me tell you- we have seen more rain than sun in the past week or so and it is getting pretty boring. The weather that is. Australia is not boring.... Read more >

Great Barrier Reef

USA | Wed, 24 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [77]

4 dives in 24 hours is a lot, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I saw corals, nemos, dories, rays, and a sea turtle. I spent Friday in two areas of the reef diving and hanging out with all the backpackers. The group I hung out with consisted of ... Read more >

USA | Wed, 24 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [72]

The morning after the siege was gloomy, literally and figuratively. There were police everywhere and a part of the city shut off from cars and foot traffic. So I walked over to Darling Harbor and then up to Circular Quay and grabbed a ferry to Toranga ... Read more >

Sightseeing in Sydney

USA | Mon, 15 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [88]

If I lived in Australia, I would move to Melbourne, but if I were to visit again, I would come back to Sydney. There's so much to see and do here that it's sometimes overwhelming. I ended up getting into the kayaking group. I had to wake up at 6 and ... Read more >

Initial thoughts on Sydney

USA | Mon, 15 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [84]

The drive from Sydney was interesting. I got lost. A lot. What should have been a 3 hour drive turned into about. 4.75 hour drive to drop my car off. I was hoping to go to a market before giving my car back, but alas the market gods were not in my favor.... Read more >

Canberra is very boring.

USA | Mon, 15 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [60]

9 hours driving up the coast of Australia is exhausting. The good news is that I didn't crash, or fall asleep, although a cop did follow me for 10 minutes....Probably because every time I tried to changed lanes, my wipers went off not my blinker...yea ... Read more >

Roundabouts are Satan's mistress

USA | Thu, 11 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [110]

I love Melbourne, but they have to make a more efficient way to and from their airport. I had to walk 10 minutes, catch a tram, get off and walk 5 minutes, get on the sky bus for 18$ and sit on that for 30 minutes. All in all it took 65 minutes to get ... Read more >

What Did Different Cities Teach Me

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 4 Nov 2014 | By margaretsw | Views [183]

I just love my childhood. I was born in Perth, Australia, but because of the nature of my father's job we didn't stick there much. To be honest, I don't even remember the place. Some might think that moving around a lot is not good for you, and while ... Read more >
