This was a once in a lifetime trip that I have been planning for years. My husband and I traveled from Minnesota, USA to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and then to the North Island of New Zealand. These were some of the highlights from the trip.
Australia, a federation of six states and two territories, is one of the world's great economic and migration success stories. Australia is a unique, modern and dynamic trading nation with an ancient indigenous history, and a European cultural background. More than 85 per cent of Australians lives within 50 kilometres of the coast, making it an integral part of our laid-back lifestyle.
I've had two fleeting visits to Singapore, squeezed in on business trips to Asia where I hop from one country to another in the blink of an eye. There's so much to explore in this tiny country and my Cityscape can only pick out a few highlights and even in the short time I've spent there I have vivid memories of the lush, green landscape. Walking through the enchanting, Botanic Gardens, eating Chilli Crab down by the Bay and having Afternoon Tea in Raffles Hotel were my highlights. I also loved exploring Little India and China Town, two contrasting neighbourhoods sitting together side by side. The magnificent Marina Bay Sands is an architectual masterpiece and makes your heart skip a beat when you look up and up at the tropical roof top garden.
Took a week long relaxing family road trip beyond Sydney with my husband and toddler son. We had lots of fun staying over at quirky accommodations and discovering good eats and sights along the way.
The places on the map are where I lived and specifically where I spent the bulk of my time. I was truly a small town girl, even though I was living 14,000 miles away from Texas. Naga is my home. The Filipino people are my family. I never forget them. This was a great way to remember my roots.
This map illustrates some of Perth's most beautiful beaches and some of the activities the local inhabitants get up to! From left to right, we head from the 'clothing optional' beach and army base at Swanbourne, to the beautiful old Art Deco Surf Life Saving Club at Cottesloe, where the tourists and fashionistas frolic in the surf and eat at the local cafes. Finally we pass through scenic Mosman Beach and end up chilling with the dog walkers and kite surfers at Leighton and Port Beach.
I was asked to create this map for Newcastle City Council's tourism website http://www.visitnewcastle.com.au
I've added a few bits since then and turned it into an On-Foot travel guide with lots of things to find on your way.
This map is inspired by my travels around Australia 2011-2013 in a Volvo Commodore. This particular part of the drive took us from Norseman in Western Australia and across the Nullabor, which basically means 'No Trees'. It was flat, open and pretty deserted for more than 2000km. Coming from the tiny island of the UK this introduction to driving around Australia totally blew my mind!
