Pain, Pleasure and Purpose

Having failed to set out on my planned 8 cycle tour through the Victorian Alps last week I ispent three days over New Years in the Namadgi National Park, which is just south of Canberra.

Kimberleys Day One

Last week I spent the week in the Kimberleys for work. For those of you who don’t know the Kimberleys are the far north western corner of Australia right up where the crocodiles are. I didn’t see any salt water crocs, but I have seen a few freshwater crocodiles this week. Unfortunately photos are hard to get out of a car travelling at 110km/h so the I don’t have proof. […]
