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!

Ahh the Danube. Some famous cities straddle Europe’s second longest river, including Linz and Vienna in Austria.

A little warmer this time; we’ve never visited in Summer before so the change in the landscape is striking.

Having arrived the night before departure we had the evening at leisure, so we had time for some Sangria. Delicious!

The next morning, we were on our way. The river was just beautiful!

We docked beside a beautiful, huge old fig, which had some of the local area’s dry stone walls running to it. We found a stone that didn’t belong *

Finished the night with, of course, schnitzel. Perhaps not as good as previous, but still, it completed the holiday, back in Vienna.
And an ice cream 🙂

All in all, a lovely weekend away (in Kiama).

Previous visits included Christmas Day where we had lunch at a hotel, and with the kids a couple of years ago.

Went back to Italy for the weekend.
Love Florence.

We decided to stay in France this weekend, and re-visited lovely Avignon.

2021 has begun in the same fashion that 2020 ended… Sydney has entered a new lockdown for some, masks have become compulsory indoors, and travel is, for the time being, off.

Can’t see overseas travel returning this year at all.

So, with that in mind, we’re doing an internal NSW travel experience.

We’ll walk a street that has a connection to a past overseas holiday each week.

This week we revisited Reims. There’s been a few changes since we last visited 😉

Reims Street, Russell Lea.
Same same, but different
Coffee 🙂

Auburn – Duck River

The council has done a pretty good job at creating a walk along the Duck River. Level, wide, good access. Will be better when the river continues to get cleaned up, but until then… really?… people fishing? Glad I’m not going to his place for a BBQ!

Hunters Hill in spring and the Jacarandas are out. Just beautiful.

Meadowbank TAFE

Meadowbank TAFE’s main entrance is on Blaxland Road near Top Ryde Shopping Centre, but the property extends all the way down the hill. Entering from that bottom gate reveals a great place for a walk through the various TAFE areas.

Cowells Lane Reserve at Dundas is an ENORMOUS off leash park, perfect for a walk for you and your dog.

There’s a creek for her to roll in and get muddy, a level (wheelchair friendly) path for walking, a fenced playground… this park has it all.
