BugPacking

Quite some time back I happened upon an ad on Gumtree (a buy, swap and sell site) – a local man wanted to get rid of a large military style metal case, and at the $0 price tag, I was onto it like a shot – free ammo can? Yes please! – what I ended…

Darling Delights

Earlier this week I found myself running a 2 day training in Glebe Point near the Sydney CBD, so I booked some last minute overnight accommodation in Darling Harbour to make life easier.  As it turned out, conveniently for me, the training group was small, which meant we got through the content a lot quicker…

While some people do,…
