Holiday over and gallery of pictures now online

Our Holiday is over, infact it was over as of last Friday when we got home. Over the weekend I managed to upload a good selection of photos from the trip, then can be found here.

The trip was good, the Australian Open matches we saw on the last few days of the trip were fantastic.

From last count it looks like the Golf did about 5030km for the entire trip. I’ll tally up the approx litres of diesel, but at this stage it was about 5.5 tanks (each tank about 45-48 litres each) of diesel.

Road Trip

Our trip down to Melbourne wasn’t bad. The fuel economy on our diesel Golf was very good. Very impressed to say the least.

We managed to do 894km on 48 litres of diesel, we certainly could of gone a bit further but when we passed a fuel stop we decided to fill it up, rather then push on the next 10 or more kilometres before we hit Geelong. So all in all that is an excellent result. As I am sure alot of folks would agree.

Weather is certainly nice, not as hot as we’d hope. But still nice enough. I hope it’s raining back in Sydney, as our water tank needs a bit of a top up. Our lawn and plants could do with the rain too.

Below is a picture we took today, will upload more when we get home (or get some faster connectivity).

Captain Sneaky

While I was watching TV the other night I caught a promo for something on ACA and instantly noticed in the footage it was near work. So I recorded ACA and caught the following segment.

I’ve seen this fellow doing his photo magic previously to this being aired.

I Am Legend is awesome

If you find yourself needing to kill some time, I suggest you go to the movies and see Will Smith in “I Am Legend“.

This movie is certainly very good and I would certainly recommend it is worth a watch. If you enjoy this movie, then I suggest you also go check out “28 Days Later” which is very similar, and based in London, rather then New York (as I Am Legend is).

Would love to hear from anyone who see’s either or both films (especially if you haven’t seen either).

Happy New Year
