There are plenty of things in this world that I just won’t try, no matter how thrilling they seem, such as skydiving or bungee jumping or base jumping. So, I’m not going to say the stereotypical comment of, “I went to Queensland and threw myself out of a plane.” Nope, that is not the experience I am talking about.

Yesterday was a day of rainforest adventures, leading me to the lovely little village of Kuranda. Kuranda on its own is a cute little place to visit with shops, cafes, markets, a butterfly sanctuary and other goodies to pass the time, but the real draw, in my opinion, is simply getting there and back.
My disposition towards the weather in Sydney as of late is not something I’ve hidden from you, my readers.

As much as I love Sydney’s mild winters… Read more, I’m really, really, really growing tired of this winter season down under.

It’s been agonizing getting to this point in the camera situation… Read more. At one point, I thought I wanted the compact SLR camera with interchangeable lenses, and at another, I thought I wanted the plain old point and shoot. One day, I refused to give up the option of additional lenses, but the next, I was firm on having the
In the past year, I’ve learned a lot about pitching, more specifically about pitching article topics to various websites. While I still find the process one of the most frustrating when I’m just lacking any new ideas, it has become a whole heck of a lot easier, which is great considering it is part of the way I make some… Read more
