We got up this morning after a glorious sleep. We got to sleep in late. We had breakfast and finished our packing. I went for a nice 2 mile walk and we caught our shuttle to the airport. Ok here is the flight list. 3:30 PM, we left Queenstown and headed northwest to Sydney, Australia. Flight length 3 hours. Then we boarded a flight south to Melbourne. Flight length 2 hours.

Last month when I was on my business travel, I had to stop over at Sacramento on some work. It was done earlier than expected and so I had an entire day to relax and enjoy. I thought of taking a day trip and visit some of the important places. Here is an account of how I spent my day at Sacramento: I am not really a morning person and so I took a while to get up and get dressed. My day started with a leisurely brunch at Magpie. This is one of those farm-to-fork spots that serve food made of seasonal ingredients, most of them produced locally. I had an Avocado toast and a local mushroom omelet, while sipping on some orange juice. With a stomach full of delicious food, I decided to walk ... read more

It's 10.10 on 5th August. We've now arrived at our final destination - Los Angeles, and in this blog I will write about how we got from San Francisco. We got up at the usual time on Friday morning, as we needed to be checked out by 10. I went down for breakfast, showered and packed up my last few things. From there we made the long walk from the hostel, down 5th, to the bus station. Normally this would have been a pleasant 20 minute walk through the city, but laden with bulging backpacks, redundant coats and, of course, Rosie's suitcase, the walk was a little more of a challenge. We made it, however, and at length found our Megabus heading for Sacramento. This particular bus company only does shorter trips so is without some ... read more

We took a ten day road trip to Sacramento, California this month to help a good friend celebrate his graduation from law school. We drove over Stevens Pass Thursday morning, through the small town of Thorpe to visit and old mill (We have the excellent A Road History of Washington to lead us to interesting side trips...). Once in Oregon, we stumbled on the near ghost town of Chaniko, and also made a stop at the spectacular Ogden Scenic Wayside near Redmond. (We also have A Roadside History of Oregon....) We then over-nighted in Bend, Oregon, right on the Deshutes River, and continued south on Friday to Sacramento. The graduation was Saturday afternoon, and it was followed by a tour of the McGeorge School of Law campus (part of University of the Pacific) and then a ... read more

Sacramento Nein, das ist kein steirisches Schimpfwort, sondern die Hauptstadt von Californien. Obwohl als steirische Referenz kann unser Governator Arnie herhalten, der da ein paar Jährchen regiert hat. Sacramento ist ein hübsches Städtchen, mit prächtigen Kolonialvillen und sehr relaxed. Die Strassen sind im Schachbrett-Muster angelegt und durchnummeriert: in eine Richtung geht es wie in den meisten ähnlichen amerikanischen Städten von 1st Street, 2nd Street, 3rd Street usw... aber die Strassen die im rechten Winkel darauf stehen heißen: A Street, B Street, C Street,... H Street, K Street, ... und sind in alphabetischer Reihenfolge angeordnet Während meinem Aufenthalt konnte ich auch die Radler des AMGEN-Radrennens beim Start anfeuern - Hop Hop Hop :-D... read more
