I actually think that keeping busy makes time go faster. So this month I have been packing in loads of small projects to keep my mind occupied until I leave for San Francisco and New York next month. So last weekend I headed up to Newcastle with Chris to check out the place. Okay, so we were there barely 24 hours. But it was enough time to look around the city, checking out the beaches and the harbour, do some shopping, eat and get back on the plane again. I was actually hoping to get a swim in the Chifley Apartments “heated” swimming pool but the water was way too cold! It’s been about 20 years since I was last in Newcastle… the place hasn’t changed a whole lot. I had no idea they had so many nice beaches there!
