Rainbow serpent is a festival located a couple of hours from Melbourne in the Australian bush. For 5 days people trade their suits for playsuits and ties for open thighs... Apologies for the bad play on words here. We gathered, danced, encountered a bunch of beautiful freaks and made the most of our time in Rainbow town. Below find a selected few pictures of those party makers!!! Rainbow stage The baby's hand Goat joe Sparkly Lizzie Russian (Egyptian) Tas Taig Efron Group pic
Oh dear Melbourne I have missed you! I left you in 2011 to go work and explore NZ. Today, you've barely changed... actually quite a bit. The house I once lived in as been demolished and replaced with appartments. The bookshop I once worked at has now been replaced by a bloody Topshop (no offence I do like the retail brand just not as much as I enjoy a good old bookshop). One thing you are still doing well though is brunch and coffee, supposably the most important meal of the
Hello friends sorry I haven't updated little blog much lately we've just lost touch of the real world aka an internet connection. Spent a few days in Mebourne strolling down all the salvos shops and stuffing our mouth with delicious brunches. After that we got a car to a crazy festival called Rainbow Serpent, a place in the middle of the australian bush where people like to get their best sequin oulfit and move dances out. We then chilled out for 8 days in beautiful, sunny, f
Polonnaruwa is the second most ancient's kingdom in Sri Lanka. Whilst we were wandering the temple ruins we couldn't helped to be reminded of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. There are less monuments to be seen but our trip there wasn't less enriching. We saw the remains of an old monk's school and an impressive statue of Buddha . Remember though, never take a picture whilst you are back to him as this isn't allowed in the Buddhist culture and can be seen as disrespectful. Also, remem
If you haven't heard about Sigiriya it's proably because you've never googled Sri Lanka before. This rock is by far the biggest and most well-known monument in the country. We climbed 1200 steps to check out a... hmmm... pretty foggy view with drips of rain. In insight, it looked magical as if you were floating above a cloud. TIP: Be prepared to get your cash out, as the price to climb that celebrity rock is 4500 ruppees. You won't get a bargain but it is a must see if you're
Since we've started our trip in Sri Lanka, every destination we've been, apart from the South Coast, has been 'off season'. This means we have been able to enjoy deserted beaches, empty restaurants & unoccupied guest houses. Consequentely the service and attention we got was great! The more we travel, the more lovely people we meet. Sri Lankans are definitely a country filled with big hearted characters. Despite an on-growing tourism, locals have remained very welcoming! Here
Third day in the new years we decided to check out one of the biggest safaris in Sri Lanka. We hoped on a jeep and encountered some: peacocks, buffalos, elephants, parrots, eagles and crocodiles. There's only one way to describe a safari, by looking at pictures though! TRAVEL TIP: We opted for Udawalawe national park as it's not as busy as Yalla national park. It's up to you what you prefer doing. The advantage being that if you stay in Yalla you are able to sleep inside the
Today, we went on a four hours boat journey to check out some blue whales. It took us a good couple of hours & two bags of sick to spot the first mammal but the experience was totally worth it! Tip: We paid 2000 Sri Lankan rupees for the tour, I know some people paid double so keep an eye out on the beach for the good deals!!!
So it's a new year, it's a new day and I'm feeeeling good! The sun is shining, the water is hot and I've got no worries in the world. Looking forward to 2016 and embarking in New Adventures through Australia, Fiji & South America.
