Beer Diary: Day 4 – Still Toronto

Decided to wander westward to the Kensington Markets this morning. It’s work the trek, but there’s a few things the weary traveller should be aware of: 1. These aren’t ‘markets’ as you may know them, with stalls set up in a large building like the St Lawrence markets. It’s just a few blocks of random…

Beer Diary: Day 3 – More Toronto

Note: I skipped mentioning the dinner I had last night, because it was nothing special at all. But I’ve thought about it, and I feel that if I’m going to tell everyone about the good parts of this trip, I should also mention the spots to miss. W Burger Bar on College St was the…

Beer Diary: Day 2 – Toronto

Two interesting things this morning. 1. Woke up at 8am fresh as a daisy…NO JET LAG!! 2. It was snowing in Toronto. Yep, wasn’t expecting that one. I’ve only ever been snowed on twice in my life, and both of those times were in Toronto. Anyway, I did my first workout in days this morning…

Beer Diary: Day 1 – BNE to LAX to Toronto

North America: Round Two

The above photo is a picture of a US twenty-dollar bill. I picked it up during my North America trip last year, and it was still in my wallet when I returned home. It was such an awesome trip, I just couldn’t bring myself to covert my last twenty-dollar bill back into Aussie dollars. Instead I decided that I was going…

How to survive Papua New Guinea

You may have noticed that I’ve been a quiet blogger over the past few weeks. The main reason for this is because I’ve been adventuring around the wild and dangerous country, Papua New Guinea. Actually, replace the word ‘adventuring’ with ‘working’, and the word ‘dangerous’ with ‘kinda cool’. The word ‘wild’ is still appropriate. When…

Chicago Debrief – All the good beers

Chicago was, hands down, the best city I visited on the trip. Most people look at me funny when I say that. After all, I went to NYC as well – surely THAT was the best city?! In my case, it wasn’t; I was horrifically jet lagged in NYC, and it’s a pretty daunting city…
