So as you know I don’t currently have a job I’ve had the realisation that I can apply for jobs from any computer anywhere I am. So I started thinking… I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride my bike I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride it where I like The idea I have had is to ride from Brisbane to Adelaide over a […]
Graeme took some amazing photos with his handy cam. In he future he will be producing a DVD with his special ABC voice-overs, but for the moment here are his best five photos.
So last week I spent the week in Alice Spring and did a trip out to Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon. I did a tour with Emu Run and I have to admit it was pretty awesome so I would recommend it if you are heading out there. I might write up a full description later, but here are some photographic highlights.
It was a wet and windy weekend and all through the house chilly drafts filled every corner. The alarm stirred two sleepy figures who opened their eyes, mumbled a few words about how terrible it was and rolled over to go back to sleep.

On Tuesday I set out for what I thought was going to be an easy three day ride through the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, down to the Sunshine Coast Proper, and then back to complete the loop. Based on our ride in the Glasshouse MountainsI mistakenly thought that it would be a fairly easy ride with one day of hills and then a two days of relatively flat terrain. Little did […]
