My Trip Down Under – The End

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 […]

My Trip Down Under – “Assignments”

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 […]

My Trip Down Under – Day 15

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 […]

My Trip Down Under – Day 14

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!

My Trip Down Under – Day 12

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. […]

My Trip Down Under – Day 11

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 […]
