    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.

    ... for all to enjoy - nary a coin changes hands..

    A hop-on-hop-off bus gives us a broader sampling of the city. This one was a skim for us, but we liked what we saw. The one common theme we have seen in most Australian cities and towns is that there is a great deal of space dedicated for public use….parks, playgrounds etc., with a heavy emphasis on sports and cultural ...

We spent the rest of the day totally mellowed on the green by the beach soaking up the rays. Our nights stay was a bit further down the coast in Ballina, we had a mooch down at the local beach before sunset. That evening we ...

    ... waterways opened up and is now very wealthy and full of rich retirees from what we could see - gorgeous sea frontage with lots of beautiful little interconnecting waterways and lagoons so lots of people have swish modern houses with sea or river at the bottom of their gardens. Very very pretty. People seem so active and healthy here - canoeing/boating/fishing/swimming/runni ng - nauseating really. The lifestyle here looks pretty good. Posh bars,shops and ...

    With Merin and Cia off on their day tour, I only had one objective which was to find Plan Toys. I did a bit of research of places of interest, that might be in the vicinity of Plan Toys, before I left the hotel and away I went. I've never been so unprepared for an adventure (even though my adventures rarely go to plan), I usually have a vague idea how I'm going to spend my time, and what I want to experience. This time I've got nothing!!! I mastered the train system pretty ...
