6am bright and early I am up and ready to go, and head to Aguaventura to get myself ready. I am wearing long trousers as recommended, a T-shirt and fleece and a waterproof jacket. Its pretty chilly this morning so the layers are good. I was expecting us to have to put on the other … More Pucón – Villerica Volcano
So the first day we got up early and headed to the Aguaventura office in order to get information about tomorrows big event, the volcano climb. They run through the different options, and roughly what it will be like and we all commit and pay the deposit of 30,000 CLP. The total cost is 95,000 … More Pucón
So, up at 4.45am and down for breakfast just after 5. Its a simple breakfast and again, just have to get used to the changes like hot milk (ooops maybe not on cornflakes!), I eventually work out the cold milk… it seems like I should have got down earlier as everyone else has had all … More Long Road to Pucón
So it is with a heavy heart I leave Sydney again, bidding farewell to all my friends over there and not really knowing this time when my next trip will be, although in the back of my mind S2H 75th Anniversary in 2019 seems like an option!! I leave my little airbnb in Manly loaded … More A very long Monday…..
So, despite feeling a little jaded from the night before I get up early at 6.30am and go for a run with Pete, Dan, Kim (he’s a boy!) again heading to Clovelly. Sadly today I don’t quite make it there although the boys do, I get as far as the cemetery (now a pretty tough … More S2H Crew Party
First morning in the crew house. The house is amazing, can’t miss the green fascia. Luckily I managed to bag the double room with en-suite to myself!! Always helps if you are the organiser! I had the first cockroach experience (and I am not talking about anyone in the crew .. !) hopefully the little … More Bondi, Rock Star Crew House
So its a reasonably early start in order to get from Perth to Sydney. Packing is becoming a bit of an art form, especially packing in the few bottles of wine I bought on my lone wine tasting tour! Its all about travelling today, not much else. Perth airport is pretty easy to navigate, although … More Farewell Perth, Hello Sydney….
So, I say farewell to my fabulous host Ali at Manuel Towers, she’s very sweet and puts out a mini Christmas cracker for me!! I will take that with me I think. Another wonderful breakfast and then I hit the road off to Perth… well Fremantle to get the ferry to Rottnest (Rotto as they … More Jump around!
I get up early and its already windy, lovely and sunny, clear skies! Perfect. So I do a little run (not too far!) to warm up the old muscles and use the beach gym as well so that I am nicely warmed up before I head off for kite lessons. I nice hearty breakfast courtesy … More Its Windy, lets go fly a Kite…
So once again its the early morning 4am cockrell wake up call, I do my best to sleep through it as long as I can but 5.30am is my limit. I want to make an early start anyway so that I can drop off the two people I have been travelling with for the last … More Farewell to Farm life, hello again Manuel Towers
