John's Around the World Adventure 2005/2006

Travel time: December 2005 - June 2006  |  by John Davies

Australia: Canberra and ACT

From Sydney, our next move was down to Australia's political centre, Canberra. Although many people critisised Canberra for its lack of things to see and do, I still wanted to take a glimpse at the Australian parliament buildings. We also paid a visit to the Australian National Museum and still had time for some beers in the Moose Heads Pub!

The trip
 
Description:
Following masses of preperation my trip of a lifetime was finally a reality. Beginning in the adventurous New Zealand, before taking in delights of Australia over Christmas. Bali was next on the agenda, trading in the comfort of the West for drastic cultural differences of East Asia. The modern city of Singapore next acted as a stepping stone for travel over-land through Malaysia and island-hopping around Thailand. My Adventure finally ended amongst the neon scyscrapers of Hong Kong.
