I find that I have a compelling urge to do things that remind me of my past life in Sydney when I’m there. This trip one of the (many) things I was compelled to do was Wildlife World.
I have a lot of fun running around inside this small zoo in the centre of Darling Harbour, and this trip I was lucky enough to be able to share it with my brother and his kids. Would you like to know more?
I have come to realise that I am now one of those people who talks about the weather incessantly. I’m sorry. However when the good days seem few and far between, you tend to celebrate when it’s good! And the weather has been just spectacular! So we did like Netherlanders and got on our bikes and headed out to the local woods.
There we found a likely patch of grass next to a canal (of course!), and watched the passing traffic. Would you like to know more?
Summer had a bit of a reprise last week, and so, after a series of events which had left us with a single bicycle for a while, and then suddenly being a two bicycle home again, we decided to head out on what might well be a final picnic of the season.
We made out way down to Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam Woods), because when you live as close to Vondel Park as we (and the rest of Amsterdam) does, sometimes you want somewhere a bit quieter. Would you like to know more?
After throwing my back out and being rather useless all of last week (and under orders from my new and lovely physio, who we don’t want to upset) I took it easy on Saturday. Pulled out my paints, and floundered for a while making a great mess. But it was relaxing.

The local 125 year old Concert Hall sits resplendently at the opposite end of Museum Square from the Rijksmuseum.
Known for being the home of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, they allow the public in to watch rehearsals each Wednesday at lunch time! It is of course, remarkably popular, and you have to get there early to get a good seat inside! Would you like to know more?
