When someone in Australia finds out you’re gay, they immediately tell you that Sydney has the largest gay population in Australia.  Almost like “you should go there and be with your own kind”.  Always said with the best intentions, I was amused by how often this happened – I’m not lying, it was like a [...]

You’ll have to forgive me for not updating the trip blog in a few days – getting enough time to actually sit and write has been a challenge – Disney is keeping us very busy!

A tale of two IPhones

A tale of two IPhones

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”  – so goes the opening of one of Charles Dickens classic novels – A Tale of Two Cities.  Although, when Dickens wrote that famous phrase, I seriously doubt he meant ‘best of times’ (I’m on vacation in Australia) and ‘worst of times’ (I [...]
