A Travellerspoint blog

Odds and sods

A mish-mash update...

semi-overcast 19 °C

Yes we realise blog posts have been lacking of late, but other than Jane's recent visits (see two previous posts and one still to come) we're been spending most of our time working whilst keeping our heads down trying to save as much as we can for the next batch of travels starting early Jan.

We did have a great time catching up with fellow travelers Clare and Alex as they landed in Sydney for a few weeks as part of their Australian leg:


Was quite surreal seeing familiar faces from back in Southampton all the way out here and did tug on the homesickness strings a little... that said our discussions about our past and forthcoming adventures soon got us geared up for the next leg...

An hour or so north of Sydney is the Kuringai National Park, on a drizzly Sunday Kate and I took Betsy out for a run and headed up to the park.

As well as some Aboriginal hand paintings we also caught a glimpse of this fella scurrying around in the leaves:

Haven't been able to identify what it is, but my damn did it put the fear of god into us...the things was big...size of my hand big!

And whilst we're at it, here are a couple of shots of Manly
