Unusual Foods

A non-destination specific post for today’s A-Z Challenge letter. Mostly because I used up my only “U” location for last years post when I wrote about Uluru. So instead I’m discussing the one thing all of us can relate to, whether we travel internationally or domestically or no further than our own multicultural home towns, …. unusual foods. Every country has them. Some little oddity, a dietary quirk if you will, that is a signature of our culture or geographic region. Some are more unusual than others, some are just a unique combination of globally available food products. So, here’s some of the different foods I’ve tried to date: Continue reading “Unusual Foods”

Snapshot – Sydney

G’day readers! Well, I’ve finally got around to it. Time for a post on my home town – the beautiful harbourside city of Sydney!! I know. I can’t believe in among all the travel posts that I’ve never written about the city I was born and raised in. The place that, no matter where in the world I may live or travel, will always be called home. So … lets get into it! Continue reading “Snapshot – Sydney”

CB&W: Letters O or P

Well, I haven’t done one of these for a while but I’ve been dying to get back into it. So here goes! This week’s photo challenge for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is the letters O or P. I’m going with O … for Opera House. My home town of Sydney has a pretty iconic and certainly unique looking opera house. Continue reading “CB&W: Letters O or P”

Snapshot – Nitmiluk National Park

So, here we are, already up to the letter “N” in the A-Z Challenge for 2017 and once again I have left it to late to write a post about my homeland, Australia. There’s no real reason why I typically don’t write much about home, it’s certainly not from a lack of things to talk about … this is an enormous country, with so much to offer it would take you months if not years to make a dent in all it offers. I make no apologies for saying that I’m fiercely proud to be an Australian and am fully prepared to acknowledge my total and utter biased in thinking it’s the most magnificent & beautiful country. I do love it. Continue reading “Snapshot – Nitmiluk National Park”

Snapshot … Uluru

Following my first Australian post a couple of weeks ago on Kakadu, I’ve decided what better time to do another on my homeland. Today’s travel destination is Uluru/Ayers Rock which is a large rock formation located in the centre of Australia in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Personally, I love the idea of this massive red rock, sitting in the middle of nowhere like the heart of my country (reminds me of my favourite poem, which I’ll share with you shortly). I’ve visited Uluru/Ayers Rock a couple of times – the first being back in 1986 and then again in 2000. And I’d love to return again!  Continue reading “Snapshot … Uluru”

Snapshot … Kakadu

So here I am in the fourth month of my blogging experience and I realise something. Despite all the travel posts I’ve done, none of them have been about travel at home! What a huge injustice to my beautiful homeland. I’m going to rectify that today by giving you a glimpse into Kakadu National Park. I’ve visited Kakadu a couple of times but my first trip was in 1986, when I was just 9 years old. My parents thought it was important that I experience my own country before venturing Continue reading “Snapshot … Kakadu”
