Mar 22, 2007 - MANLY - Australia

Und nun bin ich seit ueber einer Woche wieder in Manly, habs endlich geschafft meine Homepage upzudaten und mach mich in einigen Tagen auf den Weg die Ostkueste abzuklappern. Ich wohne hier bei Scott und hab den lieben langen Tag das Haus fuer mich allein. Ich schlafe viel, kuemmere mich um das Haus und verbringe ettliche Stunden am Internet. Wie ihr sieht, ein ganz normales, langweiliges Leben! Das Wetter ist halb gut, aber immer noch besser als in Neuseeland. Nichts worueber ich mich hier beschweren koennte, leider aber auch keine wahren...

G'day Mates! Hello from down under!! It has been sweltering these last two days. High temps 24 C and lots of humidity. We arrived in Sydney after a 2-1/2 hour flight.

Our room is gorgeous .. marble everything! and so comfy! Off to supper with Max and Mary from Sacremento last night. We went to Nick's seafood on Darling Harbour. Beautiful skyscape....

Mar 19, 2007 - The adventures of lil Kim in the big bad city of Sydney, from the lows to the highest of the highs!

Saturday (17th) - Headed out this morning to the Sydney Olympic Park just to see where the 2000 Olympics were held. Not exactly the same as what I had thought, it was very busy lots of activity happening as all the grounds and facilities were being used. A good thing but a bit weird when you're expecting it to be the same as it was on tv! The most shocking was the Olympic Pool, which is basically the same as any old swimming pool. Lotsof kids running around, big floating devices to slid off of and the only different sign was a couple of...

Mouzer's World Tour

Mar 12, 2007 - Sydney wk 15 (last week!)

On Monday I arrived back in Sydney from Canberra and then went to bed to catch up on my sleep. I was still hung over from the Saturday night and was only feeling back to normal by the evening. On Tuesday me and Layla went out to the cinema to watch the "Illusionist", which turned out to be rather good. I was spending the day times updating my blog and sorting out my stuff as I was due to leave Sydney for Melbourne on Monday. Layla was also packing up her stuff as she was moving house on Saturday, so most of the mid week evenings were quite...

Mar 10, 2007 - Sydney

Sydney is a really lovely city. It seems these aussies are a little more well to do then my Canadian compodres but perhaps thats just first impressions. People tell me this place is like Vancouver but in all honestly I have to say its much nicer looking. Dunno about the people, I didn't meet many but I did like the ones I chatted with. I stayed with my good friends Lauren and Riannon on the beach in Corella? Its was blast. We drank lots, ate well, toured lots, and even spent a day going up the coast. I saw the ocean, the city, hand gliding,...

Mar 8, 2007 - Sydney and Canberra

How nice it was to be back in Oz..It's quite corny but I was honestly filled with a sense of pride and belonging watching the Sydney skyline as we landed. I spent the next week catching up with my gorgeous gal Amy, who has recently moved to Maroubra in Sydney's eastern suburbs and didn't we have a ball.. The aussie way of life is still as fun as ever, spending a lot of time soaking up the sun and drinking (aims favourite drink - sangrea) and as for the aussie accent, well, I really noticed what those 'bloody' americans were talking about!...

Feb 28, 2007 - Sydney!

Back into a part of the world that works just as we'd expect it to :) Of course Australia is a totally different kettle of fish, with lots of differences from Canada and the UK, but right now all we notice are the similarities. Julie likens it to putting on a nice old pair of slip-ons after wearing heels for ages - the heels look good and are fun to wear, but the good ole slip ons fit just right and you can't beat that. We've got our own car and are really enjoying that autonomy even though like in most big cities driving in the city...

Begbies on Tour

Feb 27, 2007 - Sydney, Australia

"I think we should pick-up a camper in Brisbane, then work our way clockwise back through Sydney, Melbourne, Tasmania, Alice Springs, and then end up in Cairns" suggested Dad. "It will mean some back-tracking, but given the circumstances, it's probably our best plan." The "circumstances" were that we had flown into Sydney, were to spend a week at a time-share near Brisbane, arrive at Cairns as late in the season as possible to avoid the hot, humid, rainy weather, and visit Tasmania as soon as possible to avoid the chilly winter weather. The...

Feb 27, 2007 - Sydney...............again!

You may all wonder why i felt the need to go back to Sydney, it is something i wonder myself. But hey, i booked the flight on a whim and I wanted to see and appreciate some of things that i failed to last time. On arriving in the city i headed straight to the Opera House to take a proper look around. Its an amazing structure, it really is, but i'm not getting it. I thought I should take a second look as Sazy had assured me that it was inspiring and special. Its a building! It must be an age thing (Sazy's words, not mine). Although, I want...

Emily's Adventures

Feb 27, 2007 - Cairns, and back to Sydney

This was another travel day, our return to Sydney. I got up early and went for a nice long walk along the beach in Cairns just as the sun was coming up. Took some great photos, including one of a group of pelicans looking for food, and of a cranky old man throwing a net out into the water. He didn't want to talk about what he was up to, but I found out later he was fishing for shrimp. The plant life in this area is quite something. I took more photos of flowers for which I'll likely never know their names. The beach along much of Cairns...

Goin' Down, Under

Feb 26, 2007 - Sydney wk13 & Mardi Gras

My fourth and, as it would turn out my last, full week of work was the most intense yet. On Monday and Tuesday I worked from 3pm to 1am. Then On Wednesday to 2am. On Thursday the markets crashed and it was monthend as well and I ended up working from 6pm (we were told to come in later when the systems would be ready) to 6am. It was completely insane. I was pushing myself to a limit I have not normally had to go to and this was for a temp job I didn't care about. On Friday it got to 2am and I just walked out, telling them that I had other...
