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.

Hello Sydney, Hello Winter
