Seeing in 2016 in Sydney Australia.

As the boats fill Sydney’s harbour and people line the waterfront the New Year festivities are set to begin. Back in New Zealand being 3 hours ahead much the same is happening.

Heading to the Blue Mountians.

The road trip was officially underway.  Our first stop would be somewhere in the Blue Mountains for some adventure training with our final destination being the small town of Parks.  Why are we heading there? You might ask.  Well they have a dish. I’ll tell you more of that story later so stay tuned.  For […]

The Sydney Harbour Bridge.

I was excited to be in Sydney again to catch up with mates I haven’t seen in years. Sydney, while not my final destination, was still going to be my home for the next few days before my road trip started so I wanted to make the most of it.  Kim and Corey had offered […]
