"The Adventures of Supercarys" supercarys's Profile
I am about to set off on a seven week honeymoon holiday adventure and I'm SO EXCITED as it's the first time I will have been anywhere since the beginning of 2007. I can't wait! I'll be heading to England, Wales, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Latvia, Russia, Mongolia, China and Hong Kong! Best honeymoon ever? I think so! If we don't kill each other by the end of it, we'll be set for life!
I am a student in Australia with a BIG TIME travel bug. I am hopeless at geography but since I have started looking at different countries to travel to, I find I can actually answer some Trivial Pursuit questions!
I have just returned from a "Scary By Myself Travel Adventure" including countries where I was unable to understand the language. I had previously only travelled with friends (or parents, a long time ago) to English speaking countries.
I love nature and history. The part of me that wants to never stop travelling is run by them, but I am Australian to the very core, as I discovered on my first long trip away from home. I love the way I feel in Australia - there is something about the smells and the scenery that is so comforting to me that I believe I will always call Australia home.
Some of my favourite photos are on display here
I usually live in the lower Blue Mountains on a property that backs right onto the National Park. There are plenty of great bushwalks in the immediate area ranging from scrambling up the side of a gorge (my favourite) to gentle walks along trails. There are lookouts all around the area and most of them are not fenced off. I grew up in this area and I always feel at home here.
The Blue Mountains are named for the colour that comes from the eucalyptus trees as they let off a bluish haze. If you ever get to Australia, be sure to pluck a leaf from a eucalyptus tree and crush it in your hand and smell the oil, it's a great smell.
Visit my Blue Mountains page here or you can click the link at the top of this page. I've put a lot of tips and information on this page now so if you're interested in the Blue Mountains, check it out! There's a travelogue of extra photos as well.
I was accepted into an exchange programme from my university in Australia to go to the University of Lincoln for one semester. I arrived in Lincoln on the 13th of September and I stayed until the end of February! You can visit my Lincoln page here.
I did a tour of Egypt in December, Ireland in January and headed home on the 14th of February (a rather strange way to spend Valentine's Day!).
I felt much more at home in London when I returned from Europe than I would ever have expected, considering the terrible way my holiday started - I got so sick I had to go to hospital on my second day in London). Cheers to all who actually read my page and I'll update again shortly.
It's quite true. I seem to be cursed! It all started in 2003, my first major trip away from home...
Camera broke at Mt St Helens (on my birthday, I might add...). The manual film winder snapped.
Hospitalised at Tuba City, Arizona (Indian Reservation).
Camera broke in Switzerland. The lens of my SLR camera got stuck and would not budge.
Hospitalised in London.
Camera broke in Abu Simbel, Egypt. Digital camera would freeze when I took a photo, had to remove batteries to turn off.
Well, all right, I wasn't hospitalised, but I had the flu for the entire trip.
Here's a photo of my sister, who was part of the Australian champion dragon boat racing team - NSW won the title in 2006!! I have a national sports champion sister! I am so proud of her! She's just come back from China competing in the championships for Australia this past September! Her team came third! (I think China came first and second)
I am a Harry Potter NUT! I LOVE the book series and I think the movies are pretty cool as well. Ooh, I just read the last book! It is so exciting! I was actually frightened reading one part of it! What a series!
My Harry Potter travelogue is available here.
I had to put in a few of my favourite websites. They'll probably tell you more about me than I could!
Are you obsessed with Harry Potter? (I got 57%. And I'm proud of that fact!) (Now it's a year later and I got 62%)
Engrish (funny - not quite right English lost in translation)
How British Are You? (quiz - I got a Mr Bean rating!)
The World According To Students (Funny bloopers written in actual tests)
Royal Title Generator (eg The Mistress, Her Majestic Illustriousness, Empress supercarys. The Majestic Vanquisher of Virtual Tourist)
Songbird (A big shout out to mapakettle for bringing this into the VT world, it ALWAYS makes me laugh out loud!)
