A little bit of England

I have had the most lovely first weekend on The North Island although it felt more like I was in England than New Zealand. Saturday was spent at the races and Sunday drinking pimms and playing croquet on the lawn!

A Day on the Farm

After weeks of hostelling I am now in the lap of luxury staying with some friends on their beautiful farm up in the hills near Hawkes Bay.

Kiwi Land

Well after a fantastic 6 months in Australia, I finally made it over the water to New Zealand. First stop Napier. This is the view from Te Mata Peak, you might just be able to make out the sleeping giant in the distance.

A few shots from beautiful WA

Well Western Australia was every bit as beautiful as I had imagined but sadly my time there has been and gone. Now its time for the next part of the adventure, a road trip along the south coast from Adelaide to Melbourne...

Post boxes

Whilst travelling the vast open roads of Western Australia I noticed the characterful post boxes of residents who live in the outback. Each post box seemed to have its own identity, created from a random object such as old ice cream tub, a biscuit tin or even a disused diving canister! I thought they were pretty cool anyway.
