I made the most last minute journey to Australia that I have ever made. I booked my ticket at 7pm on the Sunday and left at 10am Monday morning. It was completely worth it as I got to see my girlfriend, Daisy. The reason why I was making a trip at such short notice is […]Read more "Sydney – By the Skin of my Teeth"
It was a little over 2 years ago when I made my way up to Northern Queensland to embark upon an adventure that I would never forget. Actually, It would be very hard for me to forget Bodalla Station and the Jackson family, just outside Charters Towers, due to the scars I have on my […]Read more "Back at Bodalla"

I have swam in it, driven over it, been ferried across it, taken water taxis from one side of it to the other, walked around it, walked over it, SCUBA […]Read more "Kayaking on Sydney Harbour"

Recently my group of friends was shocked to hear the news that one of our most beautiful among us had been diagnosed with Cancer. The pesky thing, not content with making home in her breast, had decided you get up, wander around and settle in her lungs as well. Despite being confirmed as ‘triple positive’, […]Read more "The Jackie O Show with Victor & Penny"
This weekend my Dad and I headed to the South Coast to catch our team, West Ham United play away against Portsmouth. What an awesome day. My mate Haydn had stayed over the night before (no funny business!) so we dropped him home on the way. Other than that it was a great run down. I […]Read more "A Trip to Pompey with my Dad"
After spending over a week doing practically nothing, other than sit on the couch and seeing Harry Potter (which was brilliant btw!), a trip down the coast with my cousin, Kevin and my partner in crime, Ed. Kevin picked us up on Saturday morning and off we went in the direction of Woolongong. Here are […]Read more "Down the Coast: Wallabies, Wine, Fudge and Breakfast"
