Friday’s Featured Food: Argentinian Steak in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Today’s featured food comes from Argentina. Is the famous Argentinian beef all it cracked up to be? Well when I was in Buenos Aires I just had to try a decent steak meal.

Getting a second Australia working holiday visa

The Day I…Did A Shit In A Broccoli Field!!

With travelling comes strange and amusing stories. This one, though slightly disgusting just highlights the amusement you can look back on, and in this case laugh at myself a couple of years down the line.

Welcome to Sydney

Departure from Malaysia and Arrival in Australia

Without flinching an eyelid and just like any other day of your life, we arrived in Sydney, Australia. Equipped, Natalja and I with simply a passport, a one year visa and our possessions, we slipped casually past border control and into the realms of Australia. That was late October 2009. At the tender age of Read more about Departure from Malaysia and Arrival in Australia[…]
