The Habour City was the perfect way to bookend our trip, thanks for the incredible hospitality Pickles, Morgan, Kat, Zane, Ollie & Angelina!

North Sydney Pool, it's basically Sedgemoor Splash without the slides and with so much salt Hollie felt physically sick after 2 lengths

Everyone hates this guy, i think because he is responsible for the early crufew in place on most of Sydney's bars and event spaces. MAKE SYDNEY LATE!

Ollie and clan welcomed us to Maroubra, about 15 years since I last saw this mofo, what a legend! We were having so much fun with the whole family (and Michael & Utta) in the sea-pool that this is the only photo...

Blue Mountains, quite rightly on everybody's NSW bucket list. We were expecting a totally washout and then boom! Bring on the sunshne, get the binoculars out and get on the wombat and roo hunt. We welcomed Pickles and Morgan to Canastaville and soaked up the stunning scenery with a pair of legends. But first, break out the Bahn Mi's and let the chili take control.

New visitors to Canataville are always quite rightly suspicious

Jenolan Caves were known to the local Aboriginal population for many thousands of years as Binoomea, "Dark places" before their modern "discovery" by European settlers brought these incredible limestone marvels to the world's wider attention. By measuring the radioactive potassium isotopes and argon gas levels we now have a pretty good idea the caves were formed around 340 million years ago, thus making the cave network the most ancient discovered caves in the world.

Back with Kat in Sydney for one final crossword showtown. She took us to the incredible art show "Exit" which grahically brings to life the affects of climate change on the global human population. Any chance you get to check it out DO IT! Here is the actual video but it plays so much better on a 270 degree Imax-style video screen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyMbF2uuSIw

10 years later Hollie takes a trip down memory lane without her partner in crime.
