Sky Diving!

In September and November 2002 I went sky diving!!!!!! :) Wow...what an experience!!! :) (especially for someone who can't stand planes and is scared of heights)

I did two static line (solo) 'jumps' with a bunch of friends who were doing their first jumps too. We really had a wonderful time!!! Check out more photos and info on my Forbes page if you're interested. :) I'd totally recommend you do it too if you get the chance... :)

Snow in Australia!?! :)

I have had quite a few emails and comments lately from people not realising that some parts of Australia actually gets snow...so here you go...a photo to prove it. ;)

If you want to see more you can visit my Falls Creek page. :)

Even I was surprised to find snow at Thredbo when I went in December 2004...the middle of our summer and there was still snow!?!? Crazy!

    My girlfriend Shelley and I live in a place called "Barking Town" - I think it would make a fantastic sister city for Wagga Wagga. What do you think ? - Kind Regards M & S.

Share your travels with the world!
