It’s a long weekend, so of course it’s the perfect opportunity for a trip to the farm, with all the boys. Even though they’ve done this thousands of times, planning the trip required phone calls back and forth. First Juzza would call Doc. Then Ado would. Then Juzza would call Ado, then Ado would call Doc again. Then of course Doc would have to call Juzza, and so on and so forth. Back and forth it went. Plans were made, timetables set. It took on all the precision of the search for MH370, with exactly the same outcome.

The obvious place is visitors’/tourist centres, or on line. A number of places even have their own apps giving out information on what’s happening and what to see. Google “Sydney tourist information” and you get 30,200,000 hits.
How helpful is this really?

Sunsets in Australia truly are the most beautiful in the world. With our beautiful trees, wide open spaces and endless skies sunsets of all hues are possible. This was taken on our farm in rural NSW, proving that you don’t have to go far out of the city for magnificent scenery.
This is an exclusive offer to buy one of only 300 prints of this photo – framed, signed and with a certificate of authenticity – for only $375.00
Measuring 90cm x 60cm (photo 72 x 42) it is a truly beautiful artwork for anybody’s wall.

Or is it?
Well, it is on Adelaide’s doorstep, but whether it’s Australia’s premier winemaking region depends on what type of wine you like.

I think it’s a sister thing, the sort of thing you only get with someone you grew up with and know well. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been, when you do see each other you pick up again from where you left off last time.
And for me and my sister, that’s with champagne, or sparkling wine at least.
So it’s just as well we were in Adelaide.

Like any relationship I probably hung in there too long. Long after it was all over on their side. Qantas have been showing unmistakeable signs that they just didn’t want me any more, but like a lot of people in a relationship past its use-by date I chose to ignore them. After all, I’m an Aussie through and through, how could they not want me? Qantas is the Australian airline – we’re made for each other.
But now I’ve booked a ticket to Adelaide on Virgin Australia.

Of course there are all the usual reasons – sand, sea, surf and sun, which, paradoxically, are the very things some people hate about it.
But it’s more than that. The beach makes me feel good.

This is from our trip to Cape York along the Old Telegraph Track. Palm Creek is the first crossing and probably the most difficult, at least it was when we were there in 2011. It’s only a couple of kilometres onto the track, but that was as far as some people got.

There’s only one thing to do – get out the micro lens.
Stupidly, even though I was taking photos in my own garden – or perhaps because I was taking photos in my own garden – I didn’t cover my legs to stop insect bites.
