Exploring & studying

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 3 Apr 2017 | By misslynee | Views [600]

Before anyone gets snappy, I know it’s been 3 weeks since my last update and I apologize… but despite the 'drop bears' I’m still living so no worries.  Last weekend I took a trip up to the blue mountains with my roommates. ... Read more >

Sightseeing in Sydney

USA | Mon, 15 Dec 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [606]

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 >

Sydney Escapades

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 12 May 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [783]

Note to self: single trip tickets offer greater flexibility! I slept most of the night time journey from Adelaide but arrived in Melbourne at 6am with 7 hours to kill until the Sydney flight – not easy when you have a cumbersome backpack, too large ... Read more >

Beautiful South Whales

AUSTRALIA | Fri, 22 Feb 2013 | By ttmcote35 | Views [287]

Well, they drive on the wrong side of the road and have flower eating kangaroos instead of deer in the backyard, but besides that, Australia sure feels like Canada! I've really had a great time up to now, and frankly, if it weren't so far, or excruciatingly ... Read more >

Finding My Center in the Blue Mountains of Australia

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 25 Nov 2010 | By lauren_watson | Views [2146]

“Whinging” is an expression used in Australia for complaining.   It’s my understanding that the expression is used mostly if you complain a lot.   I guess in “Jersey-speak” we would call it “bitching and moaning”.   I’m sorry to say I’ve been doing ... Read more >

Sydney Australia

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 4 Mar 2010 | By missy_carrie_gee | Views [1706]

If Melbourne is Australia's version of San Francisco, then Sydney is Australia's version of New York. Bigger, more urban, and not as many free and artsy stuff to do. We walked around Darling Harbour, the Opera House, the Botanical Garden (there's a ... Read more >

Har precis ätit en god söndagsmiddag vid five-ways. Terry vann på publotteriet förra veckan, och delade givmildt med sig genom att bjuda ut oss på en bit mat. Jag har haft en ganska hektiskt men mycket trevlig vecka. Min kurs i strategiskt HR-arbete ... Read more >

The Mystic Blue Mountains

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 22 Mar 2009 | By liam_omalley | Views [1197]

Today we took to the road again and headed inland to the imposing Blue Mountains, so called because the blue gum evaporating from the Eucalyptus forests creates a blue mist giving the mountains a blue tint. When the colonies first started in Sydney, ... Read more >
