Time sure flies when you're having fun. It's also a little tricky to write blog posts when your hotel doesn't actually have the free internet access they promised on their website. Excuses aside, our short trip to Paris in June was amazing. Here are a few photos to sum it up:

Underwater World & Island hopping

We arrived in Langkawi on Monday afternoon, after checking into our hotel, which is located in the main town of Kuah, we had a chance to browse around some of the local shops. A lot of the shops were selling what you'd expect from a tropical island - shirts, towels, swimwear, but Langkawi is also [...]

Melbourne round-up

Our time in Melbourne is coming to an end. With just over 3 weeks to go, we're finding ourselves visiting eating establishments and doing the old "oh, I guess is the last time we'll ever come here" spiel. We then proceed to order twice what we usually do as if it will satisfy any future [...]

Hey All! We had an awesome time in Sydney last weekend, we went to to see the All Blacks smash Australia, and we got what we came for! Woo hoo! It was the first All Blacks game I've seen live, and it was well worth it. It rained a small amount, but the atmosphere was [...]

A few weekends back we went to the Sound Relief concert at the MCG. After sitting in McDonalds for around half an hour trying to build up the courage to brave the rain, we headed to Melbourne Central and bought some gumboots. When we arrived we were stoked to find that a massive crowd had [...]

It’s been warm

We've been in Melbourne just over a month and things are starting to come together. We're in a great place on Degraves Street which is right in the city and walking distance to everything we need. Since arriving we've experienced the hottest temperatures Melbourne has ever seen and have sadly, been walking among many affected [...]
