Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Glorious day for a bit of a walk. The Kamay Botany Bay National Park is only about 40 min drive from the  city. South, down the coast. Put Kurnell into the GPS and off we went. The most important part of that park is the Captain Cook's…

Hunter Valley and Wollombi

Last weekend we decided to go on a little trip to the Hunter region, about 2 hours drive up north from Sydney. We've been there many times before, and winter is really not the best time to go, but we had to do something with our weekend. It's…

Washington DC - a city of politics and monuments

We never booked anything for our trip. No hotels, motels or airbnbs. And I was happy that we didn't because we were free to explore as long as we wanted. The only date we had to keep was the departure, everything else was negotiable. That plan…
