31 October – 3 November, 2014 – Sydney I was excited to wake up and explore Sydney on my first day in the city. Sad too, though, because it was my last stop on this whirlwind tour. I spent the first morning getting lost exploring the area near the ANZAC Bridge and made my way […]
While I was in New Zealand and Australia, in addition to just enjoying myself and seeing as much as possible, I gave myself some ‘assignments’ and projects to work on. Some were successful, some I need to work on, though nothing turned out horrible. All were fun. Night Photography During the Australian portion of my […]
28 – 30 October, 2013 – Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road I left Alice Springs on the morning of the 28th and arrived at my hotel in Melbourne around supper time. It wasn’t the greatest hotel in the world (not very clean and very old, although they have started renovating the place) but I […]
25 – 27 October, 2013 – The Outback On the morning of the 25th I was up early to meet my two night tour at 5:45 am. We had a five hour drive ahead of us to our camping spot on night one at the Ayer’s Rock Resort. We were barely out of town before […]
24 October, 2013 – Alice Springs, Australia I ‘checked out’ of the hotel before reception even opened and headed to the airport. It was time to visit the outback! After a layover in Ayers Rock, I arrived in Alice Springs around 1pm. Honestly, if I’d known how the next few days would go, I would […]
23 October, 2013 – Great Barrier Reef, Australia Despite being gone all day, it was very relaxing. I took a full day tour of the Great Barrier Reef complete with snorkeling and even scuba diving! After doing a lot of research on the many tours/tour companies (hundreds?) I settled on Passions of Paradise. It was a […]
22 October, 2013 – Leaving New Zealand (to the tune of “Leaving Las Vegas”) It’s my last day in New Zealand. :’( x infinity I got up early-ish (I would have an early morning the next day, so wanted to relax) and checked out of my hotel. I took one last wander around town and […]
21 October, 2013 – Middle Earth Queenstown, New Zealand This morning, I planned to walk to the top of Queenstown Hill. I thought about trying to get up there in time for sunrise, but as I’d never been there before (obviously) I didn’t want to try the walk in the dark. Probably a good plan. […]
20 October, 2013 – Queenstown, New Zealand Mixed emotions about arriving in Queenstown: It was at the top of my list of things I wanted to see in New Zealand… and it was also my last stop before leaving the country. I only had two and a half days here. I spent quite a bit […]
18 & 19 October, 2013 – South Island Scenery Travel to Queenstown via Christchurch and Mt. Cook Up next we have another couple of relaxing travelling… during which I did nothing. Granted, there was scenery to enjoy, but not a word read or written. I didn’t even start writing up entries about the trip so […]
