Travelling Back to Sunny Newcastle

Tuesday 19th April 2011 – Newcastle, Australia
I was excited about the prospect of going back to Newcastle, a place I was very fond of first time around. The trip to Newcastle involved many stages, and it wasn’t going to go without hitch, but it was another journey I will not forget in a while.

LA Rumba on the streets of Melbourne

Saturday 16th to Monday 18th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
I awoke this morning with the familiar feeling of being slightly low on funds. Travelling around Australia up until now has not exactly been cheap, although I have seen and experienced many wonderful things. The recent boost to my wallet came from selling my car back home, but even this money was rapidly escaping me. Once again I needed a plan, and I hoped Melbourne would give me all the answers.

Sunday 10th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
From north to south, from Cairns to Melbourne, and from sunshine to rain, I was in Melbourne now and the change in temperature was a shock to the system. I was here in this beautiful city and wanted to get out and about and take it all in. Today’s agenda was all about the sightseeing.

The Good, the Bad and the Outrageous – My Trip from North to South

Saturday 9th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
I had spoken to a lot of people these past couple of weeks about the availability of work, and where I might find it. A number of these people spoke of Melbourne in a fond way, explaining there is ample work in the city for those that want it. I wanted, so I made a decision – however rash – to fly south to the city and prey for work to be available.

Getting to Know Airlie Beach

Thursday 7th to Friday 8th April 2011 – Airlie Beach, Australia
The next couple of days in Airlie Beach were all about exploring and coming to like this place, for all its flaws. Airlie Beach is a very beautiful place, surrounded by picturesque backdrops and sea views, and I wanted to take it all in.
