The Mystical Monkeys of Batu Caves Malaysia

The Mystical Monkeys of Batu Caves Malaysia

On a trip not long ago to Malaysia I had the pleasure of visiting Batu Caves (which is also a sacred Hindu Temple) a limestone cave with shrines and of course – monkeys. I didn’t want to write much else on this post – just share some cool monkey...
Thinking of Bangkok and Thailand

Thinking of Bangkok and Thailand

With the current political problems and declaration of martial law I wanted to write a little about Bangkok and why I would still spend time living there. I was fortunate enough years ago to wander around Bangkok with no set plans and no idiotic travel companions....
Touring the Art Museums of Paris

Touring the Art Museums of Paris

I have working a lot on my art lately and so I thought covering some of the best art museums in Paris would make for interesting research. Paris already has a reputation for art, culture and history and most tourists visiting the city make at least one trip to an art...
Cities I Would Live in: Prague

Cities I Would Live in: Prague

Prague is just one of those places that any artist or writer would really appreciate living in. It also helps being part Czech but having no real knowledge of what that means. I am sitting in Australia right now with some cold winds blowing outside wishing I was in...

Thanks for the Positive Feedback on the New Escape Sydney

Hey everyone! As I mentioned in my previous post I have been mega busy with new art projects, work, business and everything else I have going on. Life is very exciting at the moment with a lot of projects coming together at last including a much needed makeover for...
Photos from Hanoi in Vietnam

Photos from Hanoi in Vietnam

To follow up on a previous post about Ho Chi Min City, I wanted to post some of our photos from our our stop in Hanoi. Personally I love Hanoi much more than Ho Chi Min due to it having so many more historic buildings and a slightly slower pace than the bigger...
Braving the Motorcycles of Ho Chi Min, Vietnam

Braving the Motorcycles of Ho Chi Min, Vietnam

Hi everyone! Sorry it has been a while since I have been able to blog on Escape Sydney. This has been partly due to laziness, but more because I have been away on holidays in Vietnam and Malaysia. I will be doing some separate posts on each because it may have been a...
So What About Space Travel?

So What About Space Travel?

I am feeling a little futuristic today so I wanted to discuss the opportunities for space travel. While we have a ‘longer trips’ section, I would have to class a trip into space as a REALLY long trip. If you have grown up with sci-fi like I did then you...
Jealous of My Dad’s Garden

Jealous of My Dad’s Garden

Even though I now finally have my own garden (albeit small) I am still jealous of my Dad’s garden. This is probably because I have seen it grow and change and develop over the years until I think he has almost got it the way he wants it. The vegetable patch in...
Simple Home Renovations Before Selling

Simple Home Renovations Before Selling

We all want the best price we can get before selling, and the best way to do this is through simple home renovations. This will help your home look great to potential buyers, increase bids at auction, and add real value to your home price. The only aspect of...
My Dream Green Home

My Dream Green Home

While I have a home that I love it would be great to be able to build an environmentally friendly home from scratch. A lot of ‘tree changers’ (those that move from the city to the country) also share this dream so I thought I would post on some of the...
Delving into the Historic Jenolan Caves

Delving into the Historic Jenolan Caves

I have just gotten back from an amazing trip to the Jenolan caves deep in the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney, Australia. It is a place that I have wanted to go to for a long time and my wife treated me to a trip there complete with a stay in the historic hotel that...
