Sydney Sightseeing

We’ve spent almost as much time visiting large cities as we have hitting the islands and campgrounds around South East Queensland recently. A long weekend and some cheap flights prompted a quick trip to Sydney earlier this year. City accommodation is actually quite cheap – for <$200/night we nabbed a beaut only a block or […]

Mount Maroon

There are so many bush-walks and small mountains that can easily be climbed in less than a day close to Brisbane; Mount Maroon is one of my favourites. Part of the McPherson Range and Mt Barney National Park south-west of Brisbane, Mount Maroon offers fantastic views of neighbouring mountains, dams and rivers and the beautiful […]

Professional Tastebud Development

How has it taken me almost 30 years to visit Adelaide? That’s what I kept asking myself during a long weekend spent interstate. After missing the registration to a burns management course in Brisbane, Alyce and I decided to travel again and tie some holidaying in with professional development. We had a choice of Adelaide […]

Mount Beerwah

Autumn is the best time of year to get out and about in SEQ. It’s cooler, there’s plenty of daylight and the skies are starting to get that deep blue look to them. Alyce and I had a day off recently and decided to tackle one of the Glasshouse Mountains – Mount Beerwah. We’ve climbed […]

Graduation!

He wasn’t mentally stimulated. He agonised about changing his career and eventually decided that he should go to university. At […]

Turning 29!

Hey guys! It’s that time of year again – birthday week! I love birthdays. They are a damn good excuse to take some time out of your busy schedule for the things you love. This year, I was surprised with a relaxing and romantic weekend away before sharing a fun-filled afternoon with a riverside BBQ […]

Yandilla Camping Weekend

It isn’t often that Alyce and I find that our rosters match and we get an entire weekend off. We often get a day during the week, or one day on the weekend, but we hit the jackpot over the recent long weekends and scored 4 days off. Together. We decided early to make the […]

2015 Photo Dump #1

We love living in Brisbane. There is always something on. And lots of awesome friends and family to hang out with. Alyce and I spend a lot of time exploring and I often just take a few photos that sit on an SD card for months and months. Here’s a dump of some photos from […]
