At the start of February I was confident I knew what the theme of this post would be as I’d planned to spend the month travelling to New York, Havana, Mexico City and Washington DC. I arrived in New York on 1 February and had five great days exploring Greenpoint in Brooklyn where I was […]

Last year I participated in a monthly blog series called The Changing Seasons.  The series was initiated by fellow blogger Cardinal Guzman from Oslo and involved people from all over the world posting photographs from their home town or city each month.

This is my last post for the current Changing Seasons series. The series was established by blogging friend Cardinal Guzman from Oslo back in January and each month bloggers from all over the world have been posting shots of their home city. The idea of the series was to highlight the seasonal changes that occur in […]

It seems like only yesterday that I wrote my first Changing Seasons post.  That was back in January, now here we are in November with only a month to go before the series is complete. The weather has been warmer this month so I’ve been out a few times wandering the streets of the city […]

I’m writing this post from Savusavu located on the south coast of Vanua Levu, the large island north of mainland Fiji. It took almost three days to sail from Vuda Marina on the west coast of the mainland to Savusavu. The first night we anchored near Malake Island on the north coast of the mainland. […]

Savusavu Bay

This Melbourne Life will be coming to you from Fiji over the next few weeks. I’m over here to participate in the Fiji Sailing Regatta with good friends Robyn and Roger on their boat Phantom Mist and to spend time sailing around the beautiful Fijian islands. This was the 32nd year of the Regatta, a […]
