Coming back (alive) from the Outback

We had the occasion to check out a number of thing on our way back from the Outback. Kings Canyon About 300km north from Uluru is Kings Canyon and its 270m-high cliffs and a palm-lined valley floor. It took us 3 hours to hike around the canyon rim, descending down to the Garden of Eden […]

The Outback and Uluru

Our outback journey has been intense. We went from Adelaide to the Red Center, taking a detour through Flinders Range National Park and the mythic Oodnadatta track, before heading back to Sydney by opal mining city Coober Pedy. A lot of driving and hiking was involved, and it was an adventure-full week. Let’s start in […]

From Melbourne to Adelaide: the Great Ocean Road

After a couple of days in Melbourne, we’re back on the road: let’s discover the great Ocean Road! One of the most famous and iconic road-touring routes, the GOR runs 243 km along the the South-West coast of Victoria. The view is mind-blowing, the waves are world-famous, but the weather often cloudy… Welcome to the […]

Melbourne

We found in Melbourne, the 2nd most populous city of Australia with a population of 4.25 million, a more culture oriented and original city than Sydney. We arrived there early Friday morning under a burning 44°C – maybe not the best conditions to visit the city, but we still had a great first day. We […]

Australian Road-Trip part 1: Sydney to Melbourne

So that’s it for Sydney! We started the trip with some bodysurfing in Wollongong, 80km south of Sydney. The “Gong” is a city with a great laid-back beachside lifestyle which reminded us much about Manly, and we enjoyed leaving Bondi to find a nice and not crowded (!) beach to spend the afternoon.   We […]

Our Australian Road-Trip

It was nice having an actual home for a couple of months while planning the rest of the world trip, but we’re happy and excited to be back on the adventure track. François arrived from France on Sunday 12th to join us, and we are leaving on Monday 13th for a month and a half […]

Sydney

We are about to leave Sydney and we only realize now we haven’t talk at all about the city itself… The explanation is that frankly, there is not that much to talk about. Let’s take a quick picture tour:   Sydney’s landmarks, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge   The CBC is small […]

Coogee, Manly and the Blue Mountains

First things first: Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great 2013 and wish you an awesome 2014! We celebrated NYE looking at Sydney’s firework, and surfed on January the 1st: what a perfect way to start the new year! We finished the Bondi-Coogee walk, by exploring Coogee Beach and around. It is actually […]
