The Gili Islands & Lombok

The Gili Islands are slightly different from most of Indonesia & the popular holiday destination of Bali. It’s a good two-hour boat ride to get there from Kuta and once you get there the lack of motorised vehicles combined with ‘Island-time’ lifestyle makes it a pretty chilled location. There’s not a lot to do there […]

Far North Queensland and the Daintree Rainforest

Wolf Creek land I think there’s something special about taking time off work while it’s rainy, cold, and bleak (aka – shit) to head to somewhere tropical and warm. It’s kind of like saying – ‘Nah, I’m not having this’. After a drunken night planning to rent the shittiest Shitbox rental car we could find […]


Progressively backwards ‘Backward’ from modern society is a welcome concept, especially if you appreciate a simpler life, where it’s freer, where it’s purer, where life is just, well, better. While I’m not entirely sure I could move there just yet, I do think I’d like to end up somewhere like Tasmania. Parts of it are […]

Travel is the new Black.

Ok, I know – I’ve been a ‘little’ bit lazy over the last, say 10 years. No blogging about the shit that really matters – Travel. But I’ve decided to take action and make a positive change as of now ~ It’s time to find a trolley, pack it with a few random things and […]

Itchy feet..?

Me too! It’s now 2016, and my feet have started to itch again (I’m hoping it’s not fungal ..) I’ve been yearning of an extended break and a change of pace. Work-life is manic, and I find myself dreaming of buying a combi and travelling south from Alaska as far as i can go south. Must be time […]

Berlin – Is it really Germany?

If you like electronic music & graffiti, this is for you… After slowing down to ‘Island time’ for almost a month, I came to Berlin not really knowing what to expect. The thought heading back to a big city after being in chilled out places like the Balearic Islands and Portugal makes you somewhat nervous, […]

Part 7: the reason for being organised..

Things are beginning to become clearer now. Being organised and NOT leaving things up to the last minuet has it’s merit. Back in 2006 i was FRANTICALLY trying to organise intricate flights with local Brazilian travel agents using my 10 words of Portuguese vocabulary and a series of tiring games of charades… By the end of it, […]

Lisbon, Portugal

A beautiful city in so many ways Portugal is high on my list for destinations, it’s hard not to like it. After booking a nice apartment to myself, found moments before boarding the plane to Lisbon I was on my way. An uber from the airport took about 30mins, yet only cost several euros? Good […]

Mallorca, The Balearic Islands – Spain

I want to move here. I can see why so many find Mallorca attractive now.. Previously, I’d somewhat ignored the place when travelling to Spain, but I’m so glad I finally figured it out and got my arse over there. With a combination of ‘Island time’, breath-taking mountain passes, sparkling aqua coves and beaches, combined with a […]

Part 6: charge your damn smart phone..

Ok, It so might seem a bit lame, travelling with a smart phone to you old skoolers, but they are bloody hard to live without now-a-days. Firstly, you get these fandangled GPS-enabled maps that help you find where you are and where you might be going… Secondly, you can listen to your awesome Taylor Swift […]

Ibiza shenanigans

Am I getting old?! A week in Ibiza was almost too much this time around, It nearly broke me 😀 For a change we took an overnight ferry to the Island this time instead of the usual 45min flight from Barcelona, we landed rather early in the day so had quite a lot of time […]


Our opinion of somewhere is very much dependant on our experience. Take Vancouver, Canada for example. The first time I visited, I truly thought it was the best place on earth, mostly because of the company I had and the places I visited. The second time I visited, I thought it had some ‘rough edges’, but was […]

Part 5: beating the long term travel blues..

Party, Drink & Sun. Ibiza Island – Party capital of the world. To explian, a short while ago I found myself feeling board and dismayed with my life on the road. I found myself saying (and you’re going to hate me for saying this) “I need a holiday from my holidays”, and yes, if I […]

Bormio & Livigno

Italy ski trip Bliss Bormio and Livigno are both great ski areas, if you’re into sliding down a mountain, I can highly recommend both areas! Bormio is a beautiful little town at the base of an incredibly large mountain. With over 1800m of vertical, a run from peak to the base for a decent (but by […]

Lake Como

Bliss Travelling briefly through Milan, I stopped at Lake Como before a tidy ski adventure in Bormio and Lovinio, in Italy. I didn’t spend a lot of time in Milan, so I can’t really say I’ve given it a fair chance, but on brief inspection, it wasn’t my favourite city in Italy. – To be […]


Awesomely weird. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on Homlessfuk, and I put that down to a severe lack of holidaying. Well, nothing like a quick break to somewhere strange to fix things. Japan is awesome. Awesomely weird. It’s hard to get around (which I kind of like) due to the language barrier, and […]

Stop Making Sense festival – Croatia

Where? The Garden, Petrčane, Croatia 12th – 14th August Why? Why the bloody hell not?!! What? 3 DAYS & NIGHTS OF MUSICAL ANARCHY BY THE SEA Go on. You know you should StopMakingSense (*sad update: this festival appears to no longer take place 🙁 ) Related stuff: I ♥ Ibiza A quick stop in Ecuador […]

Gordon’s Bay, Sydney

The flotilla of munters A quick trip down to Gordon’s Bay on most days will greet you with a tranquil bay, perfect for snorkelling and sunbathing. Gordon’s bay on Australia day a few years back was awesomely celebrated with the largest flotilla of dirigibles I’ve seen for quite some time. Gordon’s bay, a usually tranquil […]

I ♥ Ibiza

Where? Ibiza Island, Spain. Why? It’s good for the soul with serious partying and a super-relaxed atmosphere. When??  January, through to April is party season! (*update: Mission accomplished! It only took me 10 years to get back there) Check it out here:  Ibiza, Round 2. Related stuff: Part 5: beating the long term travel blues.. Travel […]

The Whitsundays

Crikey, that’s good I’ve been to the Whitsundays many times now.., and I’ll be back there many more. For me, the area is one of my favourite destinations in the world. Admittedly, I may be a little biased in opinion (who isn’t?) – being from Australia originally, it’s a special place that I’d encourage you […]


Just enough time for tea and scones Being Europe’s hub for air travel, London seems to attract stop-overs, whether they like it or not. I don’t mind a stopover (here and there) but to try and spend ten days at 2.6 times your currency (the ‘Pacific Pesso’) is just crazy. So I made a plan […]

Prospecting for work in BC

Mining almost looked viable The grand plan for the year was to not work for as long as possible, get to Canada around October(ish), and search for a suitably cushy job in a ski resort. I had held my end of the bargain up with ten months of gruelling travel, but when it came down […]


A quick drink …or two Ireland was an addition to my travel plans added in at the last minute. I had previously wanted to go and experience Ireland because I know the Irish love a drink (and I do too), and I found out that I have family heritage from the region so I wanted […]

Lisbon to Lagos, Portugal

What can I say? Portugal was a great county. I loved every bit of it. From the relaxed atmosphere to the friendly and helpful locals. The city of Lisbon was wonderful, and the beautiful coastlines and beaches were at times heavenly. The cuisine on offer everywhere was great and the prices seemed so much more […]

Spain in a nutshell

Mullets and Thieves Well, I really loved Spain in 2006. However, the distinct lack of self-respect from the people in the areas through hairstyle sense – particularly the 33-50% of Spaniards that thought a Mullet was cool, dragged my opinion of them down considerably. It was like a bad bad dream – or, more like […]
