Bath, Berlin and Prague

Calling passengers for Bath!

With frequent trains from London Paddington, getting to Bath is pretty easy.  Apart from trains, coach tours stopping via Stonehenge are quite popular as well. Continue reading Bath, Berlin and Prague

Arthur’s Seat

I’ve been to Edinburgh four times now and I have yet to walk up Arthur’s Seat.

Day trip to the Grampians

Nearing the end of Autumn, I decided to make a day trip to the Grampians for some walking.  So many people I know have raved about the Grampians for its trail walking, 4wdriving and rock climbing, so I had to go and check it out.

As I only had a day, I decided to gear up for some hiking.  Searching the net, I found this excellent guide to the many walking tracks in the Grampians, hosted on some home server for the Dandenong Valley Bushwalking Club.  If you’re heading to the Grampians, definitely give it a look.
