House Swapping

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

I’ve placed an ad on Home Around The World to see if I can organise a house swap with someone during my vacation. Ideally I’d like to swap with someone who has a place in a big or interesting city for up to a month during March/April/Mat this year. You can check out my ad here: I really hope I can make it work. It would be great to experience living in another city for a month. And I’m sure it would be fun for someone to come and live in Australia for a month as well. Those are some of the nicest months in Melbourne.

The Big Vacation

Friday, February 11th, 2011

I finally had my request to take 2 months off work approved at the office yesterday. It was kinda tough getting whole team to agree on the leave. And now that it’s done I’m wondering what to do with all that time. I’m thinking I would like to spend half of it working on projects at home, and the other half travelling. Now because I’ll be taking a pay cut to get that much time off, it will need to be a cheap trip. I think a trip will to the US will be best because I can visit friends there. So I will post updates as the time gets closer on the final plan.

Summer Loft Visitors

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

I’ve been busy with visitors and getting out and about the past couple of weeks. I had Greg from Wollongong visiting me. I was really glad he made the trip down. I actually made him help me sort through all my junk and work out what needed to be thrown out. It was funny when he arrived because there wasn’t even any place to sit down. And thanks to Greg I now have lots more space in my bedroom and the place got a good clean out. I’m not sure I can explain these photos though.
