Oz Wednesday – Sydney

Standard

Each week I’m holding my new feature – Oz Wednesday (some might notice it’s a take on the title of a particular fruit named phone company and their 241 deal at the cinemas!).

Every month will change to a different city in Australia (some of which I haven’t visited, but I’ll work my way round that!), and for 3 weeks of each month I’ll choose my favourite parts of the city, and try my best to sell it to any backpacker/tourist that happens to pass through!

For the whole month of February I’m touching on the subject of Sydney. Last week I highlighted the much cheaper, with no loss on experience, Tower Climb of Sydney Harbour Bridge… This week I’m hitting the coastal fringes of Sydney and taking you to Manly…

Bluesfest – Day Two

Standard

Day 2 began not too well… mainly due to the lack of sleep I was getting. No sleep plus myself turns into a screaming moody mess!! Not a pretty sight for anyone to view I can tell you… but Bluesfest was still to be attended, so once a parking space was found for the van, we headed straight in to catch ALO on stage again.

Bluesfest – Day One

Standard

Day one was your average get-your-bearings-right kind of day. We had a number of acts lined up to check out but the show didn’t kick off till 4pm, so we had a good mingle around the festival arena to see what was what.
