Bali 2011

Seven days on the glorious island of Bali. An immediately calming but strengthening environment.

This time I saw more of the beaches and ventured inland to Ubud – a cruise-y, spiritual town.

Fun times were had on surf board, bike, yoga mat and dance floor. And there was plenty of fuel from the nation’s superb Bintang and anything-with-peanut-sauce dishes :)

I hope I make it back again some day…

Enough walking to warm up.. Enough recovery. Enough wondering if they look odd. Let’s get these bad boys on the road

Batemans Bay

Long weekend down in Batemans Bay south of Sydney, a gorgeous bit of the country with some beautiful and secluded beaches.

Scruffing it up with Laz, hostel, bbqs.

Piling in to a whole heap of running, surfing, paddling.

Getting centred with a splash of reading, yoga and red wine.

Happy :)

Sydney City2Surf

The City2Surf is a legendary Sydney race. In its 40th year and welcoming 80,000 participants, it is the biggest race in the world, and a massive Sydney event. I’ve not had the chance to participate before, injury threatened to keep me out this year, but all good and I’m so glad to have been part of this.

A crisp (cold), beautiful Sydney day and proceedings kicked off in proper Aussie style; good camaraderie on the free public transport between more serious competitors and those intending to stroll the distance. The organisation was excellent, well – it had to be. And I mean, really, the size of the event impressed you from the start, just the volume of people spilling from every street towards Hyde Park.
