Understanding Serendipity

Before WordPress, I used to run my blog on a system called Serendipity. Sometimes, you know what a word means but it isn’t actually real to you. It’s a dictionary definition- a clinical expression of a word’s value. Serendipity was one of those long words that other people use but wasn’t in my vernacular –... Continue Reading →

Home in Sydney

I’ve received a lot of questions on where I was living in Sydney during my stay. I didn’t stay in a hotel as that would have been prohibitively expensive for a three month stay in Sydney. Searching for housing from overseas was a bit chaotic, but wasn’t impossible. I first started with AirBnB, but got... Continue Reading →

I choose Cairns as it was the largest city along the Great Barrier Reef, but other locations would've been Port Douglas as well as Airlie Beach.... Continue Reading →

The motorcycle trip across southeastern Australia was truly awesome. My time is winding down here, so it's important to get off my tail and go see the things I wanted to do in my spare time. Australia is about as big as the United States, and the Great Barrier Reef is in northeastern Australia. I... Continue Reading →
