Mooching around Melbourne

After a taxing university semester and a sweaty Summer in Brisbane stretching ahead of us, we decided to take a city break in Melbourne. The idea being to escape the Brisbane humidity, catch a comedy show, mooch around the street-art filled suburbs and treat ourselves to some decadent meals. For anyone who appreciates street art you’ll need […]

Photodump: Shades of Melbourne Winter

Somehow I have only ever visited Melbourne in the Winter, this visit culminating in a particularly cold and moody climate.

It also tells me a lot about the people that live there. As Australia’s […]

I realise how long it’s been since I’ve posted. The past couple of months have been a blur of university study and casual jobs, all part of the bigger picture – to eventually work overseas as a Social Worker. But the more I learn the facts about the issues that have always riled me up, […]

The Great Ocean Road

One of the most spectacular drives in Australia would have to be the stretch of heritage listed tarmac that winds some 243 kilometres along the bottom of Australia’s coastline. Aptly named the Great Ocean Road, the drive takes you through forest, past lush rolling hills and wild seaside cliffs. Neither Andres or I had explored […]

Photo dump: Poking around the streets of St Kilda

On our recent trip to Melbourne we chose to stay a short ride from the city, close to the ocean at Port Phillip Bay. St Kilda gave as a great insight in to the urban cool of the city suburbs – bulging with food choices, coffee shops, second hand furniture and creative clothes; as well […]
