We are just becoming pros at the whole public transit. We hopped on the train to Town Hall and headed to the Wildlife Sanctuary on Darling Harbour. Again, this is a stop that we get in "free" using our Merlin Passes. If you're coming to Australia for an extended period... Continue reading

We headed into Manly to the Aquarium for the day. We were going to take the ferry but with all of us heading there it turned out better just to drive. I'm happy we did as Emma took the ferry there the next day with a friend and it was... Continue reading

It's funny, everywhere we drove with Claire took "about an hour". That's the line we used fro frain rides and car rides and more often than not, we were pretty close. The Blue Mountains was no exception. We headed to the mountains with the intentions of doing a good hike.... Continue reading

A big day.... sortof! Maybe a long day would be a better title for this one. Without really knowing what I was asking of Claire, she agreed to drive with me to Pambula to pick up Emma from the Gilberts. I thought it would be nice to have her home... Continue reading

A trip to the city. This is "the" trip we do with all our guest. But even though it's something familiar, we still love it! We find new things to look at and explore, and this trip was no exception. We got off at Milson's Point and walked across the... Continue reading

When we were planning our trip to Australia we told them we had to celebrate one of everything before we left. And then in coming to Australia we said we get to experience one of everything while we are here. So today was Cole's "one of everything" (his words). It... Continue reading

I think I've said that the Halloween supplies were few and far between here compared to home. It made me realize I think that we're a little over the top in Canada BUT also that a little more would have made our Halloween prep a little easier:) (or access to... Continue reading
