People watching in Manly

A few days after the girls arrived I took them to Manly. Partly for selfish reasons as I’ve been wanting to go for a while but never got round to it but also because everybody always says I should go. We got up early, got on a ferry from Circular Quay and started our journey. […]

Homeground Festival in Pictures

Working during the week doesn’t leave much time for exploring, but most weekends I try to make the most of my free time by exploring different FREE things in and around Sydney.

My first reaction was “what on earth?” Initially I thought someone in our hostel […]

A Reflection Post

Now into the first week of 2015 I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and write a reflective blog of the past year of my life. It’s safe to say that 2014 did not start well for me. I was in the height of a messy break up from my 6 year relationship, whilst […]
