• Went to the opening of the new Nepean river walk at Camden today. It was a really gorgeous day for it, and a really nice walk.

    Got to watch the gliders come in to land at Camden airport as well.

  • At some point in the not so distant past, somebody vomited on the plane I just boarded.

    I can’t see it, but I can smell it.

    It lingers on the air, seemingly longing to repeatedly venture into my nostrils.

  • Australia’s snowy mountains may not compare globally, but they still looked nice flying over them this morning.

  • I’m commuting to the city on public transport for the first time since March 2020. I’m unsurprised, yet still hugely disappointed, that my mobile data still drops out between Glenfield and Holsworthy.

  • …and home after a long drive. The number of idiots on the road today tailgating and swerving between lanes in the rain was mind-boggling.

  • Doing the last day of holidays packing.

    I hate this bit.

  • Holy shit. I was at Sea World yesterday and looked at the helicopter rides. I feel for the families - this is horrible.

  • I spent the first day of 2023 with the family, pounding the pavement of Sea World. Still a great day out, but for some reason it felt like there was less there in the way of marine activities now compared to when we last visited 10 years ago.

  • I don’t think I could ever live here, but I do love the walking track that runs up and down the beaches of the Gold Coast. Such a gorgeous view in every direction.

  • After an epic 12 hour drive, we are finally on holidays up on the Gold Coast. Nice apartment, walking distance to the beach. Pretty tired, but looking forward to tomorrow!!

  • I just spent 45 minutes ransacking the house looking for the key to the car’s roof racks. I searched every nook; scoured every cranny… only to find them attached to my wife’s key ring.


  • Awesome trip out to Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo.

  • Flashback to this stunning sunset at the Three Sisters.

  • Can’t believe this is all about to be over. What a place. #tasmania

  • 1st Wedding Anniversary, Kangaroo Valley

    Last weekend saw Lauren and I celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. I know - how quickly did that year go by?

    We tossed around a few ideas of where to go to celebrate our first 12 months as a married couple, but with Lauren’s pregnancy and budgets, we decided that we would return to …

  • Airline Security Has Gone Beyond Stupid

    On my way home from Hong Kong this week (I was there for an HP conference), Lauren asked me to pick up some duty free makeup. No worries - I do it every time I go on a business trip. Except that this time, at Hong kong airport, as I went to purchase a series of make-up removers and lotions, I was … read more

  • My favourite Wedding photos

    I’ve been going through the wedding photos, and trying to narrow down my favourite shots. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just too hard. So instead of actually choosing a few of my favourites, I’ve selected a few random pics for the blog. I’m also planning on … read more

  • The death of Fiji Time...

    I’ve been back at work for two days now, and am longing for Fiji Time. It’s hard to believe that only 5 days ago, I was lazing away in a hammock, enjoying the pristine (but humid) Fijian tropical weather. I miss it. I miss everything about Fiji. Although I probably miss the fact that I … read more

  • Flying High - tomorrow at least!

    So we leave tomorrow. It’s a funny feeling really. We’ve been counting down the number of days until we go on this trip for at least 12 weeks. It’s been our mantra to get us through each day – 10 weeks, two days… nine weeks 5 days. To think that we’re hopping on that plane tomorrow is kind of … read more
