Voordat we met de bus naar Canberra gingen, zijn we nog even Sydney Centre in geweest....leuk sfeertje en parken (ja, dames, parken)! We kijken er al naar uit om eind …

Pancake Parlour- is this Paleo? ; p

A travel blog entry by travel.bug.

I awoke from a very broken night of sweaty sleeping on the couch with a women sitting opposite me for most the morning doing her studies.
It was somewhere between 7:30 & 8am that I decided it was safe again to enter the bedroom.

The room reaked of alcohol & sweat. It was so disgusting. We all sat around laughing about the …

Early start and a hangover don't mix well

A travel blog entry by travel.bug.

Ahhhhhhhh my head!!!! Wasn't feeling well after waking up around 8am to head to Jimbahs cross fit comp. With water in hand and our lovely Laya as a sober chauffeur we got to the box in one piece and ready for some action!
I really got into it, more than I expected.
So much so that the group have now convinced me to join cross fit. Once that …

On the road again...

A travel blog entry by travel.bug.


As soon as 6pm clicked over at work I was a blurr racing out the door. First stop was the swim school to pick up Dee and Em then with a quick stop off at woollies for driving snacks we were on the road and headed south to Canberra. We arrived, as planned, at 10:30 which gave us plenty of time to get ready and head out to the much beloved Canberra …

Meeting Place

A travel blog entry by jameshardy88

    Centrally located, friendly people. The place is very crowded when we stayed, lots of noise and not too clean. There is also no parking, so if you have a car, you have to park 200m away in the long term public parking $$ across the street. Okay for a YHA, but not the best.
