Roaming With Convicts

Time for a roaming day and another little outing. Our destination was the nice little town of Longford and its two World Heritage Sites, the colonial estates, Brickendon and Woolmers. What a magic day, a crisp but mild winter day with an azure sky and not a breath of wind. Roaming perfection.      ... Continue Reading →

Tell ’em Don’ll get ’em

A well established, evidence-based, definitely not fake news fact about myself and Steve is that we are hopeless gardeners. Hopeless in so much as we plant, we water, we watch the growth and…we watch the demise. It just seems that no matter how hard we try, how carefully tended the plant might be, it seems...

The Grand Tour Legacy

Yes, it was three years ago that Steve and I did our Grand Tour cycle through Europe. Yes, life has gone on since then. Yes, we should probably move on and stop talking about something that happened three years ago. Yes, there are plenty of people who’ve cycled further and longer than we did, we... Continue Reading →

It’s just magic. I set off for a 16km run along the country... Continue Reading →

We took it at a leisurely pace, driving the long way around and stopping to have a look at some places that leave us, as local Tasmanians, feeling embarrassed... Continue Reading →

Roaming Around That Big Nut

Yes, the blog is back. It’s been a while. Quite a while. It’s time to resurrect one’s jottings of experiences and give them a place on the blog page once again. Steve and I have decided to toddle off on another run, ride, roam adventure next year, hitting the pedals again to scale hill and... Continue Reading →

Home Life And Bike Life

I’ve had a few people ask me if there were going to be any updates on our life post-grand tour. So, here goes. I think it’s called an adjustment period. That time when your body is in one place but your mind is far, far away. I’m still in that phase. Steve has returned to... Continue Reading →
