Wandering Around Paris

Love it or hate it you’d by hard pressed to deny that spending an afternoon wandering around Paris is a bad thing. It’s the kind of city that presents post card views around every corner. The above was snapped right next to the Sacre Coeur Basilica after I’d taken the long way to get there and was lamenting just how many steps can be found in that part of town.


The Aussie Nomad Goes 3.0

Any blogger will tell you that keeping your site updated and overflowing with interesting content for your readers is a LOT of hard work.

My First Visit To America – Space Coast

My visit to America so far has seen me sample the high life in Miami, air boat my way around the Everglades, soak up the sun in some very Beachy destinations and now it was going to Space. America is well-known for many things but NASA and the Kennedy Space Center has to be one every tourist knows about. Located on the aptly named Space Coast, who’s very name suggests […]
