I finally experienced it, after years of watching it on TV – New Years Eve in Sydney!

The Blue Mountains is a magical place any time of the year apparently – they certainly weren’t when I went there!

I’ve landed in Sydney, big city of light, and seen the Opera House and Harbour Bridge – woo hoo!

I took a mini trip down the West Coast of Australia and unfortunately ended up in prison. But on the plus side I also saw some lovely little quokkas!

Hello Perth, blue skies, heat, a laidback lifestyle, kangaroos, just a shock to the system pricewise after South-East Asia!

Back to Singapore for a couple of nights, and I went to the Changi Prisoner of War Museum – a must visit.

Our few days in Gili T were pretty much perfect for a number of reasons, including we snagged the best budget accommodation EVER!

I am sad to say there are minimal cultural references in this blog but a lot of having fun! We did visit the Monkey Sanctuary in Ubud, which was great!

A brief stop in Singapore and a very enjoyable visit to Singapore Zoo!

I ticked something off of my traveling bucket list – go to a Full Moon Party on Ko Pha Ngan!
