Road Trip

Australia

As those of you who read Monday’s article will know, I am now on holiday. But I still did want to put a post online today provided I could get an Internet connection here in Adelaide. Well, I can. But hold on! I’m supposed to be on holiday, shouldn’t I take a rest? No worries, [...]

Great Ocean Road

Not so fast! In Monday’s post when I was talking about our meal in the West End and deciding whether it was expensive or not, I said “But there is another way of comparing the cost of living between Australia and England. I think it’s better and I’ll explain it in full on Wednesday.” And [...]

The Dish

Update: Sami’s blog is no longer online, so you can’t visit her website to read my guest post. No worries though, you can still click on this link to read about Our Australian Roadtrip: The Highlights. So no need to read this then…. You may recall a couple of weeks ago we had our first [...]

traffic

One of the things that drove me nuts in the UK was the traffic. The  M25 has been a joke since about 1990. I have watched the sunset from my car on that road many times! Thankfully I have no idea what it is like now, but I suspect it’s not good. Traffic around all [...]

When we left Melbourne it was 35°c. We drove for six hours and when we got out at the end of our journey, it was 17°c. In old English, that’s a drop from about 95°f down to 62°f. We were heading for Warrnambool, which is pretty much at the end of the Great Ocean Road. [...]
