Dear followers, I'm already back in Belgium for two weeks now and got rid of the jetlag! I got used to the traffic lanes again, food and the hours of sleep. Through this platform I would like to thank all the persons who supported and motivated me during this awesome experience in Australia. I'm already planning catch-up's and sportive events to get rid of some unhealthy food I've eaten in my times Down Under. Currently I'm hunting for a nice job, I hope Australia brought me the opportunity to capture one ! Regards, Maxim... read more

Dear Followers, It's been a long time with no updates, but now I'm back with a hell of update! I only had 2 more weeks left in Australia and therefore planned a trip to the other outback of Australia, Alice spring in the Northern Territory. This place contains the well known icon Uluru ( the big red rock ). Luckily I already had some experience with the outback of Australia and prepared myself by buying some winter clothes and goodies. The follow-up trip would be to Melbourne, where I could drive along the "Great Ocean Road" and visit the rainforest. Are you ready guys, to hear my experiences? I arranged my trips, figured out some roads and quickly booked the tickets. On Thursday 12 June I headed off to the airport of Sydney to head off ... read more

Hello followers, During this week a colleague from work took me out for an awesome game of squash, we played for approximately 2 hours. I obviously lost every-time because I've never played squash before ^^. Same for being on a bike, the ride on the bike was really relaxing after a busy day at work ;).

Dear followers, I'm very tired, but I still want to post a new update about this thrilling road-trip to the outback of Australia !

Dear followers, I'm back with an update about my trip to the Blue Mountains. I got up very early and went with a friend from the same hostel, to the pick-up point. At 7AM we were already on our way for a big adventure ! We almost had 2 accidents due to stupidity of other drivers, luckily the bus driver kept his head cool and avoided them. The day started with a visit to the Featherdale Wildlife Park, we were able to pet the kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, koala's, emus, ... all the typical Australian animals you can think off ! We got 1 hour to walk through the Park on our own and do whatever we want. It was an absolute unique experience to get this close to the animals in a save environment, therefore I'm ... read more

Dear followers, It's been a long time before, I placed an update. But these on going weeks are currently one of my busiest. The previous week started off with a birthday of one off my colleagues, the spirit in the company, "alpha dot net Australia", is very nice. We brought out a toast on all the good updates inside the company with some champagne and had a delicious cheese cake for the birthday. But life is not only roses and sunshine. I requested 2 days off at work, to be fresh for executing a big step in a project at work. These days also gave me the opportunity, to arrange my stuff. My room began to look a little messy and my shirts needed another cleaning. I started off my cleaning marathon, bought some food, drinks. ... read more

Dear followers, The past weekend, I went out for a good taste in a whiskey bar, called the Baxter Inn. They have a wide range of whiskey's presented in a big bookshelf rack. They literately offer the best types of whiskey you can get and an unlimited offer of pretzels to combine with your drinks. This bar is a hidden gem, because it is reachable through a dark alley and it is situated at the back of a building. Then you have to proceed downstairs to a single door. And you are in for this delicious new experience! For pictures refer to the following page: url= Sunday , I had a relaxing day at Bondi beach. It was a sunny day with a nice breeze ;).
