Things are starting to get a bit desperate with Sydney’s COVID 5km travel restrictions.

As we are stating to run out of streets names to visit nearby, we resorted to a bit of generic European holiday cheating!

Abbey St Hunter’s Hill backs on to St Joseph’s College sporting fields – eerily quiet during this period, and the ovals never in better shape.

Como is gorgeous!

Last visit we enjoyed a trip on the lake; this time we had to make do with a stroll through the quieter part of town.

So this weekend we revisited beautiful Bath.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t find the gorgeous Royal Crescent, that row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent.

We’ll have to look harder next time we visit.

Easy to see why Romeo found Juliet’s so easily. It’s the only one in the whole street!

Verona Drive, Wentworth Point (Rhodes)

Pooped! Absolutely exhausted. A hell of a walk this weekend!



Jordan, a fascinating country.
Friendly people, great food, Petra, the Dead Sea, red desserts…

One of the great takeaways from our trip to Jordan in 2018 was the stairs.
Everywhere! Some things never change!

A beautiful town near Avignon, famous for its beautiful Roman amphitheater.
Those Romans sure were busy!

So this weekend, we went to Greenwich.

Some things have changed… there wasn’t an IGA last time we were here… but I’m pleased to report the Prime Meridian remains.

They did a good job rebuilding after the war.

Bender Parade

Posted: January 31, 2021 in Sydney Streets

2018 we set out to walk all the streets in our family tree.

A few we didn’t manage to cover as the only instances of that street were geographically difficult.

So, this weekend, while we were up Newcastle way for something else, we walked Bender Parade, Kotara.

Keith and Pat Bender, Robyn’s parents. Great people.
