Space Shuttles

Atlantis In May, Sarah and I found ourselves in Florida at the Kennedy Space Center. Sarah had never been before and it happens to be one of my favorite places on the planet so it was a must go. While there we had the pleasure of seeing the final resting place of Space Shuttle Atlantis…. Read more »

Shady Pines Saloon

On our last night in Sydney, Sarah and I visited the last Sydney bar on my list of the world’s 50 best bars, the Shady Pines Saloon. Hidden down an Alley with a barely marked door we had a bit of trouble finding the place, however it was worth it. Stepping in to the Saloon… Read more »


Koala Park Sanctuary

On Saturday, we moved from the Westin in Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD) over to our AirBnB in Bondi Beach. After a taxi there, then a bus ride and a train back to Sydney’s Central Train Station, we met up with my co-worker Matt and his wife who had kindly offered to take Sarah and… Read more »


Palmer & Co

My 33rd bar from my list and I have to say it was a bit of a disappointment. While the decor was awesome and well done and the drinks were well made, they sadly didn’t suit my taste. Sarah ordered a Bebe lion which has a fantastic presentation, however it tasted very medicinal in a… Read more »


Surfing at Bronte Reef

Morning Walk in Sydney

Due to Jetlag, I have been waking up between 4:30 and 5:30 am this week in Sydney. This morning after tossing and turning I suggested to Sarah that we should go for walk and watch the sunrise around 6:30am. We headed over to the Botanical Gardens and were quite impressed with the beauty of Sydney… Read more »


Bulletin Place

Bar number two in Sydney and a different twist on the speakeasy. Instead of going down to the basement this bar is hidden up the stairs on the second floor. I went with some colleagues from work so I had the opportunity to try two different drinks. First up was the Ruby Tuesday. This tequila… Read more »

Octomore 10

The Baxter Inn

Bar Number 30! This is a big one as I can finally see the finish line of my journey, but just because I will finally reach my 50 bars, it doesn’t mean I am going to stop visiting fine cocktail making establishments. While I was at the Baxter last night and chatting with the amazing… Read more »
