Discovering Blacksmith’s Beach, NSW!

I have driven past the suburb of Blacksmiths numerous times on my visits to Swansea and Newcastle.  I've seen it on the sign as we head towards the bridge which spans the entrance to Lake Macquarie, but for some reason have never taken that turning.

Chaos and Calm in Vietnam!

My friend and I were in Vietnam on the last leg of our South East Asia travels.  We'd been in SE Asia for a couple of months and were feeling a bit jaded and tired. We were travelling the world and Vietnam was our last country before we would fly to Australia to see in… Continue reading Chaos and Calm in Vietnam!
