The Cheapest Way To Travel Oz On Wheels…

Rally banger

Before I arrived in Oz I had heard from various travellers that there was a way in which you could see all the luxurious coastlines that Australia has to offer for a more than desirable price. The entire perimeter of Australia is speckled with a variety of long white sandy beaches and more reclusive coves and hideaways and it is up to you to track them down. So the obvious way to find these hidden …

Lissos Gorge Walk, Crete, Greece

This interesting and attractive gorge has so much to offer. It’s almost secretive entrance gives you the feeling that you have stumbled upon a newly discovered treasure and in so many ways it matches these expectations. Unlike the more famous Samaria Gorge trek, this walk is less intensive but still very rewarding, with the bonus of historic, ancient ruins and a charming unspoiled cove to be discovered at the end of your trek. There are numerous …

Agia Farago (Agiofarago) Gorge – Crete – Greece

What are Greek girls like?

For the first time visitor to Greece you may want to know what Greek women are like. They differ in almost every way to the standard British girl (or at least in my eyes). Greek women are very attractive, more often than not religious and very close with their family – it does not bode well for the horny single traveller looking to get laid. Greek women take pride in their appearance and dress up …

Music Music Everywhere!

  Maybe it’s time for another few tunes I / we have been listening to while travelling…..or maybe not…either way I am putting them on. In my true style they don’t really follow on from one another so you can choose to listen to them in order or perhaps skip about a bit if you recognise any of them. Hope you enjoy and as ever feel free to criticise and suggest tunes.   1/ Nouvelle …

Things To See And Do In Sydney

I’ve just realised that Ian and I have now been in Sydney for around 3 months and now only have around 5 weeks left before we need to be moving on to do our seasonal work to extend our visas. This takes around 3 months to complete and can sometimes be quite tricky to find, so we have allowed ourselves 2 months of leeway in case anything should go wrong. In our 3 months we …

Joining A Gym In Sydney And Other Major Cities In Oz

Joining a gym in Sydney has been very easy to sort out and is for me a great way to unwind after working in a job which is at times quite mundane. But on the plus side the pay is pretty good in comparison to a similar job role back in England. If you are a traveller and fitness is on the top of your priority list then joining a gym is very easy in …

Finding Cheap Clothes In Australia

I’m not going to pretend to be some sort of fashion expert, as is evident from photos, I look like a partially sighted chimp has had a go at dressing me, but from the months I have spent in Australia so far I have found a few places to get some cheap clothes. This isn’t to say they are anywhere near as cheap as you will find them in South East Asia but clothing can …

You can’t be arsed to do anything and you are perfectly happy with your home country’s bank account which you’ve probably had set up since birth by your parents, but you know as you cross into the country down under you can of course use your current bank account …

Driving In Sydney…..Badly

I feel it best to open this entry by saying within my first 3 weeks of driving in Sydney I received around $500 of parking fines. Why? Because the signs in this city are mental, not to mention some things that are perfectly legal to do in the UK are traffic offences over here. The sign you see in the photo attached to this post is actually quite tame in comparison to some of the ones …
