Welcome to my Travel blog!

There's not much here, really. One day, I might finish my NYC blog (from a few years ago). Right now, I'm just about to start a 5,000 km self-supported bicycle ride for FightMND - an Aussie charity at the forefront of fundraising research into the hope of finding a cure for the dreaded Beast of a disease called MND (Motor Neurone Disease). It is also known as ALS (Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig's Disease. It's terminal and there is no cure and no real effective treatments. Life expectancy, on average, is 27 months from diagnosis.

By the time I got out there, it was time to head back to Newark. Still, the drive was nice, and I did manage to take a photograph of one of the many covered bridges that are scattered all over that part of the country. ... read more

North America » United States » Pennsylvania » Philadelphia September 29th 2009

Today, I decided to rent a car, for a couple of days, and just do a little bit of driving about. I decided to ultimately head for Philadelphia. Due to being drained by the flu, I didn't really feel in the mood for the taking of any photographs. However, it was a nice drive about! ... read more
