Welcome to my Australian blog   Leave a comment

You may have noticed that I’ve changed a couple of things on the blog, like this ‘home‘ page, where you’ll come too if you’re just entered my blog address into your browser. On this page, I hope to keep you informed of any new developments on the blog and point you in the right direction on your journey through it.

To read the latest posts, simply just click one of the links under the Recent Posts heading on the left hand side of the page.

To view older entries, you can either use the Calendar to select posts from specific dates or select a month from the dropdown list just below the heading Archives. There’s also a handy listing of the categories I’ve post each of the entries under so that you can zoom directly into areas you fancy taking a look at.

Wow, five years in!

I celebrated my 5th anniversary in Australia on the 1 August, where has all that time gone!

This year I decided to take a holiday within Oz and after visiting most of the major cities in the various states, I decided it was time I took in some of the big country that Australia is famous for. So after some investigating I opted to fly over to Broome and take a tour of the Kimberley region of WA. Therefore, the next big update of the blog will be a journal of my adventures travelling the Gibb River Road and surrounding areas.

In addition I’ve taken a look back at all the unpublished drafts that I have on here and was shocked to see that there are 70 odd posts waiting to be finalised and published. So I think I need to make some sort of effort to knock off some of those in the lead up to Christmas!

Happy New Year to all my readers and welcome to my Australian Blog.

It’s just under a week into the new year and already I’ve posted a couple posts and I’m working on catching up on some others which should be ready in a day or two.

Well, here we are! four years in and I’m still writing entries to this blog.

I must admit it’s been a bit of a struggle at times and to be honest I’m still working a on a number of ‘posts’, some from as long ago as 2012. One day, I’ll get to catch up on everything, but for now I can only promise to keep posting the latest events in my life here in Australia.

Hello everybody and welcome to my Australian Blog!

I know I said that would start writing a blog as soon as I arrived down under but it’s been a mad five or six weeks since I arrived (more of which later!) and I’ve only just got round to sitting down and working out how to write and configure post on this blog.

Firstly, I would like to thank everybody who turned up at my leaving party in early July (So much has happened since then I can’t even remember the date!) and for all the cards and presents I received on the night. Brought most of the prizzies and cards with me but couldn’t get the hat into the suitcase. The cards were a great source of comfort in the first few days after I arrived and I’ve only just took them down. thanks again for all the messages of encouragement and support.

Gail has just arrived back in the UK after spending nearly five weeks down here with me. Glad she was here with me when we moved into our new apartment as I don’t think I would have got anything near ready this quickly without her. Still lots to do but at least I’ve got something like a home to live in.

I’m going to sign off for now but please watch this space for more news and pictures in the coming months.
