My KTM Duke 390 2014

So, I’m now a biker person. After getting my learners license in Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia, I bought a KTM Duke 390 2014 model from the KTM dealership in town. Here I’ll post about any add-ons or modifications I do to the bike. First thing to sort out was storage bags… ViaTerra Velox Saddlebags I like to ride. I like to take photos. I don’t like to wear a backpack filled with heavy photo gear while riding....

Kayak camping, Wooli, NSW

Since buying my first kayak a couple of years ago, I’ve always wanted to go kayak camping. During the Australia Day long weekend of 2015 I made my way to Wooli NSW. My current kayak is a Barracuda Beachcomber Ultralight. It’s a great kayak for both ocean and rivers. Compared to my old Mantra Palani kayak, the Beachcomber is: 86cm longer; 17cm thinner; 15kg lighter! Arriving at the south-most end of Wooli Rd, I parked the...

Choose Your Australian WordPress Website Hosting for 2015: A Web Designer’s Review

Most WordPress website hosting reviews are written by authors (often with little or no technical knowledge) with one objective: to earn a commission based on referring you to a website host. This article reviews two Australian hosting companies – two companies that I trust and actually use as a web designer and developer. Yes, I’ll receive a tiny commission if you decide to use one of these companies, but this...

30d30m#24: Port Coogee, Western Australia

Visiting family in Fremantle and had to take the opportunity of continuing the 30d30m project with a photo of the sun setting on the ocean – something I don’t get to see on the east coast. The sun seems to set quicker when watching it disappear into the ocean. Last year I spent a few months in Fremantle. It was a very unique situation with a few very good mates. It was my first time in Western Australia and I loved the...

30d30m#11/12/13: Sawtell Beach at sunset and Muttonbird Island, Coffs Harbour

Weekday’s are always hectic: work; yoga; gym; personal projects; special events; and visiting a beach for 30 minutes every day. 30 minutes is only 2.5% of a day, and I’m glad each day that I’ve made the effort to take some time out and visit… Muttonbird Island is accessed via the jetty at Coffs Harbour. Not exactly a beach visit. Just behind where I took this photo is the tiny (150m long) Gallow’s Beach...
