The Great Ocean Walk

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 20 Jan 2015 | By a_and_a | Views [18]

Apollo Bay-Elliot Ridge Day 1 is full of nerves, excitement and an anxious need to start. We arrived around 1pm and, after collecting a map, bus schedule, and a quick phone recharge sat down to eat our first hiker/camper meal- tuna & beans. Not ... Read more >

Live Where Your Heart Belongs To

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 15 Jan 2015 | By mark1st | Views [40]

  In life there comes a time when you need to fly away from your nest and start building your life in a different direction. Sometimes, the road to a better life takes you a block away from your mum and dad, and sometimes, it's a whole different ... Read more >

rain rain go away...

AUSTRALIA | Fri, 9 Jan 2015 | By a_and_a | Views [81] | 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 [59]

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 >

Sunbathing in Brisbane

USA | Wed, 24 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [52]

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 [74]

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 [63]

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 [48]

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 [102]

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 >

Airport Adventures

USA | Sun, 30 Nov 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [84] | Comments [1]

I'm in my third airport in 24 hours and will shortly begin my journey to number four. I've been on vacation a little over a day now and all I've seen are airports; although the Sydney airport is quite nice and has free wifi, score! It hasn't been the ... Read more >

2 week notice

USA | Fri, 14 Nov 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [96]

Since roughly day 35, I've been keeping a countdown of days until the big trip. Today, I hit a big number and then straight up panicked while at work. 14 days. That's two weeks. That's 336 hours until I'll be on a plane heading towards the west coast ... Read more >

What Did Different Cities Teach Me

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 4 Nov 2014 | By margaretsw | Views [148]

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 >

Australia - Day 10

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 30 Oct 2014 | By changstein | Views [20]

Ever heard of Ned Kelly? He's like the Australian Robin Hood, and this is a creepy plaster cast made of his head immediately after he was hanged.

Australia - Day 7-3

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 27 Oct 2014 | By changstein | Views [17]

Ciders here are pretty delicious.  They taste just like juice until you try and stand up. We happen to be enjoying these at Melbourne's oldest brothel, now converted to provide slightly different services.

Australia - Day 7-2

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 27 Oct 2014 | By changstein | Views [17]

Not the typical kind of food you would expect to find in an alley in Edmonton, but this is pretty much the usual in Melbourne.
