Ekka

Every year the city of Brisbane has the EKKA. It’s a 10 day country fair right in the heart of the city. This year we went along to see all the animals and crafts. Sadly the crafts were taken over by the numerous rides and greasy food shops. There are some amazingly gifted crafters in Queensland. Below are some photos, sadly the Continue reading Ekka

Sydney Vacation

IMG_3846I’ve just come back from a long weekend away in Sydney. Naturally I took my crochet project with me! We covered a lot of the NSW wales area with trips to The Blue Mountain, The Entrance, Bondi Beach, and Brighton-Le-Sands.

The project I am working on is a simple corner to corner but with random colour changes. So I didn’t have to bring scissors on the plane I precut lengths of the yarn and took them with me. This was a great idea! I found crocheting in the car very relaxing and the flight took no time!

In Australia you can bring crochet hooks on planes but I didn’t want to risk my hook I purchased in America so brought a cheap plastic hook instead.

New York, New York

It’s been a dream of mine to travel to New York City for years now. Recently I traveled to the USA for a month of exploring which included an amazing 10 nights in New York City. After a delayed flight we finally got to our hotel at midnight. I should mention we had come from Las Vegas, so obviously was exhausted.

The next day we woke to rainy and cold! Well, cold for an Australian! We set out exploring the city. We walked an average of 20 km a day! We saw all the touristy stuff like Times Square, Central Park, 30 Rock, Empire State, Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial, and heaps more. We also took in a concert at Webster Hall which was hipster and awesome! I loved the fastness of the city and learnt to negotiate the streets. The food was slightly disappointing, but maybe we ate at the wrong places.

I would love to return for about a month to explore the non-tourist side of the city.
