As regular readers will know, on Fridays I like to showcase a video from somewhere in Australia. I have to say, these are my favourite posts of the week, because I often get to see something or somewhere that I otherwise would not have seen. For example, my last video post was called Fernvale and [...]

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. I like to publish them on this website a month after they’ve appeared in the magazine, and as this one appeared [...]

For the last two weeks I’ve been telling you about our brief travels around Perth and Western Australia. If you read them all, you’ll know that we really enjoyed our 10 day stay over there.

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 [...]

For some reason I thought the “Jaws” franchise spawned many sequels, but I’ve just checked, there were only three. None of them were as successful as the first film, so I don’t think we can really expect a ‘Jaws 5’ to be coming out anytime soon, so this very short story will have to do [...]

Nullarbor

Well, I’ve still not yet been to Perth yet and it still is on my list of things to do. I have my mind set on a trip west within the next seven or eight months, but how will I get there? Almost certainly I will take a plane and be there within five or [...]
