Chania, Crete (Day 3)

  I started the morning socialising with other tourists over breakfast then headed off in search of the public park, my camera slung around my neck.  I had trouble finding it actually, I asked a shop attendant, still got lost, then looked left down a side street as I was walking and there it was.  I had thought it was… Read more →

Chania, Crete (Day 2)

  Breakfast here in Chania does not start until 8am so there is plenty of time to do yoga beforehand (luckily I have a DVD player in my room).  Downstairs I got to meet the two lovely women who would be serving breakfast every day, and they made me feel very welcome.

Wave Rock, Western Australia

After first coming to live in Perth in 1998, I only just discovered Wave Rock last weekend.  What started out as a mystery drive, venturing out near Armadale through to Brookton, turned into driving to Corrigin and then I begged to see Wave Rock which was just another hour or two away in Hyden.  We arrived half an hour before dusk thankfully (don’t worry we didn’t leave Perth until almost lunchtime) and it was certainly impressive.  The question remains… how was it formed? and why there and not anywhere else?  I guess you could say the same about Ayers Rock which is even more impressive.  But that will be for another day…

It was surprising to find a great caravan park, shops and cafe on site after driving for hours looking at the vast dry landscape around us.  Below is a map of a circuit trail you can do, but you would need to allow a full day for this.
