The Olgas

OK, the love affair with shorts is over! Yesterday my sister and brother-in-law jumped on a plane headed back to Old Blighty and they took the rain with them, just as they had bought it here in the first place. Or had they? I'll come to that in a minute and also explain my heading [...]

grub

Well, how can I put this? There's not much about. Today I want to wrap up my adventures in the middle of Australia with this final report. I have already quite comprehensively covered Uluru so now, here's the other stuff. Pretty much slap bang in the middle is the one large town, Alice Springs. And, [...]

Okay, I really don't want to turn this into a thing. I have been guilty of that kind of behaviour before, particularly with the weather. We had a bout of weather not too long ago which led to me writing several articles, including...... Tropical Cyclone Ului Predictably Unpredictable Queensland’s Cyclone Season Ending Soon. Global Warming? [...]
