Merry go round the world


After my just incredible scenic drive yesterday, I went to the last two great spots at the great ocean road: London Bridge and The Grotto. Afterwards I headed north to the Grampians… It took me a bit longer than expected ๐Ÿ˜ but I arrived save and went finally to some great lookouts (). Even though we hit today 37* I walked down the McKenzie Falls ๐Ÿ˜ Was beautiful! Unfortunately I can not… Read More

Well, there is actually not much to say… I just drove along the great ocean road ๐Ÿ˜ Well to drive on the left side is a bit special, but it did work out after a couple of hours ๐Ÿ™ˆ just keep relaxed ๐Ÿ˜Ž but with those views the easiest task! And well, the scenery is so welcoming, so I watched the sunrise at the 12 Apostels … > no words – just… Read More

A great day with Sonja – and we named the day the 4 K’s … not real reason for it … just for fun ๐Ÿ˜ St Kilda: we went on the tram at the CBD. 30′ later we were at Melbourne’s beach – St. Kilda. Well, it’s not the nicest beach in Australia, but still pretty and a fantastic location to be ๐Ÿ˜ Kitty: Sonja found the little kitten… as a cat… Read More

Beside meeting up for lunch with two friends, which I met in Thailand while I was in the dog project, I would say, today’s highlight was my night photo course. The course was done by Alfonso Calero. Within 3 hours you get a lot of tips and tricks for doing a great shot at night with your camera. Also some inputs about editing he showed at the end. I had a fabulous… Read More

Unfortunately I can not visit a show at the Opera House while staying in Sydney (nothing good going on for me). So I took the chance and made the official tour… An amazing construction – great looking and functional on top. And as a treat we could listen to the Sydney Opera Orchester while having the rehearsal for their La La Land performance in the main concert hall ๐Ÿ˜€ Afterwards I enjoyed… Read More

It supposed to clear up today. So I took the bus to Bondi Beach and started my costal walk to Coogee. As promised, the sky turned blue and the sun was shining! ๐Ÿ˜ It is a easy walk along the coast. But the views you will experience during this 6km are amazing! Beside watching out for surfers at some of the beaches, listening to the sound of braking waves, you also walk… Read More

Welcome to Sydney! I just arrived yesterday evening by train from the Blue Mountains. My Hostel here is fantastic (YHA @ the harbour). The view from the roof top is just unbeatable – opera house and Sydney bridge ๐Ÿ˜ Anyway, to get as much as possible from my Sydney stay (even though it was a cloudy and rainy day again), I joined today a free city tour. I did not know what… Read More

Today the climbing got to reality! Yeah! A bit chilly in the morning but the sun came out soon and made it just a perfect day – not to warm / not to cold. After we got our equipment, we drove around 20′ to our spot of action! Our routes got installed by our guide, while we enjoyed the fabulous Lookout! After getting a refresher on safety and handling etc. it was… Read More

Well, once again … rain! So instead of attending my climbing class I stayed inside… … and spend my time with writing and reading ๐Ÿ˜ but if all comes according the weather forecast my time at the rock comes tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ In german we call this: aufgeschoben ist nicht aufgehoben ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Blue sky and sun – just a big invitation for going to a hike. So we walked up to the Echo Lookout to see the famous rock formation ‘Three Sisters’. From there we walked along the ‘Prince Henry Cliff Walk’ up to ‘Scenic World Top Station’. We went down into The Valley by cable car. Nice views are assured… From down there we walked along the valley (great round walk/federal pass) till… Read More
