Perth from above

To continue the theme of photos, I have created a short video on my home city of Perth, and considered as the most remote city in the world. A little history of Perth, founded in 1829 as a penal colony, by Captain James Stirling. (My primary school teacher would be proud I remembered) Many of…

Some of my favourite photos

I love taking photos, I just don’t make time to go out with my camera. What I enjoy most is taking photos of landscapes; there are so many fascinating features to flowers, trees, the ocean, the forest, the geography of the land. I particular like to take photos of waves crashing against the cliffs or…

Change is good… though stressful

Well, we’ve just moved house. I can tell you from experience, Winter is not the best time to move. It rained while we were packing our cars and when the removalists came. Thankfully, the rain stopped for a while, and held off when we arrived at our new house. It is only a temporary stay…

The joys of reading

I grew up in a small country town and we didn’t have a lot of money, so I used to borrow books from our very tiny public library. I started my reading journey with Enid Blyton books, The Famous Five and The Secret Seven, then I moved onto Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. Rather…

So, where have I been?

It has been a long time since my last my post, and while it was quite the hiatus, it was not my intention to be away for over two months. Yes, over two months. I have missed our blogging community as I haven’t been able to catch up on any of the blog posts that…

A little unique part of South-West Australia

This blog post strays from my usual articles on ancient history and mythology. I had promised to showcase images of jarrah and karri trees that are only grown in my home country and state of Western Australia. Both species are amongst the tallest trees in the world, the jarrah growing as tall as 50 metres…

Knock, knock… I’m still here

It has been a long time between drinks since my last blog post. My absence wasn’t intentional but life happens. I had written that I would explore the origins of Easter, and I will. First, I need to get my headspace in the right zone. At the moment, my mind is all over the place,…

The year that was 2017

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. John Steinbeck Brainyquote Hard to believe another year has gone. It seems each year flashes by like…
