Australia: Where Men Are Men And Women Are Sheilas

September 8th, 2001
Well, what can be said about Australia?  The land of the Flying Doctors, Prisoner Cell Block H, Sons & Daughters, Home & Away and Neighbours, some of the world’s best soaps!  Not only that but it also has a unique ecosystem with unique wildlife,… more »

Day 116: Wipe Your Shoes Or You’re Not Coming In!

September 8th, 2001
Day 116. After only a short four hour flight we landed in Darwin at 4:30am.  It seem funny to arrive in Australia without any real jetlag, although having said that, the method of visiting lots of countries on the way just to avoid jetlag is a little… more »
