Indoor Skydiving – Wind Tunnel Madness Now on TripAdvisor!

It’s thrill seeking time again! This time, it’s thanks to TripAdvisor – they asked me if I was interested in their TripMaximizer campaign to show off the ‘Things To Do’ part of their enormous website. Yes, another perk of being a Z grade internet celebrity! The TripMaximizer campaign is about highlighting that trips, accommodation and experiences […]

In Case of Fire – Break Glass Here For…

In  a place like Australia where you will see fire danger signs everywhere, here’s something that is a bit more light hearted when it comes to fire safety. In pretty much every country that requires every building to meet a fire code, you’re going to probably find a fire hose or fire extinguisher located somewhere […]

Godfather Movie Parodies – The Codfather!

The Godfather series of movies were one of the most successful movie series of all time. It’s an iconic movie starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and many others which popularised the gangster movie, and gave the rather unfortunate impression that all Italians of Sicilian origin belong to, or are at least related to someone in […]

Cool Things to do in Adelaide and South Australia on a Road Trip!

I’d like to thank Thrifty Car Rental who loaned me a Mitsubishi ASX for a short road trip around South Australia, where I was able to visit all of these places below! Believe me, you need a car to get to all of these locations in a reasonable amount of time. Have a look! I love a […]

The Horse Drawn Tram – A Nice Life in The Slow Lane..

First of all, I’d like to thank Thrifty Car Rental who loaned me a Mitsubishi ASX for a short trip around South Australia, where I was able to visit the rather offbeat horse drawn tram at Victor Harbor! See more below! Back in analogue times (that is, before 1994…), things used to be a lot simpler […]

Makybe Diva – Visit The Statue of this Fairytale Racehorse!

First of all, I’d like to thank Thrifty Car Rental who loaned me a Mitsubishi ASX for a short trip around South Australia, where I was able to visit the Makybe Diva statue in Port Lincoln! See more below! Everyone loves a winner. Especially a horse that has been pretty reliable in terms of bringing […]

Swimming with Seals in Australia – Not Near The Sharks…(!)

After having a great time going Shark Cage Diving with the Great White Sharks (and surviving with all limbs intact), I went on another wildlife experience with Calypso Star Charters near Port Lincoln in South Australia – Swimming with the Australian Sea Lions. Don’t freak out, Swimming with the Sea Lions isn’t in the same location where […]

Midnight Oil – Visiting The Diesel and Dust Album Cover

First of all, I’d like to thank Thrifty Car Rental who loaned me a Mitsubishi ASX for a short trip around South Australia, where I was able to visit the Burra Homestead.. See more below! Anyway, there’s nothing like visiting the place that has been burnt into you imagination as a kid! Especially when it […]

Great White Shark Cage Diving in South Australia. Wear the Brown Underpants!

One thing I’ve always wanted to tick off my silly travel bucket list was to go Shark Cage Diving with Great White Sharks. However, I’ve been thwarted to offer myself up as shark bait for the last couple of decades because I’ve had opportunities to do this in South Africa, only for rough weather to […]

Horseback Riding in Australia – Campdrafting

One thing that many people do when travelling overseas is go horseback riding in some spectacular location like a beach, national park, or some other picturesque location in the world. Personally, I’d rather throw myself off a cliff on a bungee swing as I’m scared s*&tless of riding horses. They know it too and they’ll […]
