Australia

If you have ever visited my homepage, and hopefully you have, you will have seen that it has links to a selection of videos. The very  first video on it, Our First Full Year Living In Australia, went live on January 1, 2009 just after midnight and launched this website. The video contained some of [...]

magazine

Time for another Australia and New Zealand magazine reprint. You may have noticed I’ve done a few of these lately, but every now and then I realise I’m getting a little behind with them.

It was the one thing we knew we would miss by moving to Australia because, well, Australia is rather remote and detached from the rest of the world. So [...]

Perth

I still haven’t been to Perth, that’s something I definitely intend to fix in January of next year. I’m sure I’ll come back with lots of photographs, but for now I’ve had to scrounge this one from Wikimedia… From my page on the city though, I do know that it is quite an expensive place [...]
