I’ve been labelled as many things throughout my life. Haven’t we all at one time or another? There’s no way of getting away from this. It’s what we need to be in order to function as a civilised society. However, when we are judged solely on our basic demographics, in my opinion things become unstuck… Continue reading THIS IS MY OPINION, IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, THAT’S YOUR OPINION.
DAY 21 (Thursday 15th February 2018): FLIGHT HOME I popped up to the local café for a last Aussie brunch, very pleasant service. I got a taxi to the airport, checked in and passed through security without any issues. Thought I’m laughing here, plenty of time for Duty Free and a beer or two before… Continue reading JARMIN GOES DOWN UNDER: SYDNEY DIARY, PART 9: ‘BACK TO BLIGHTY’
DAY 19 (Tuesday 13th February 2018): RECOVERY COLLEGE WORKSHOP & OLYMPIC PARK I found this workshop very interesting, in particular seeing how the Australian mental health system works. The people who I met were very friendly and I felt were on the same wavelength as myself. On the train up to the workshop, at the… Continue reading ‘JARMIN GOES DOWN UNDER, SYDNEY DIARY Part 8 – SPORTS & EDUCATION SYDNEY STYLE’

DAY 9 (Saturday 3rd February 2018): SURREY HILLS, KINGS-CROSS & PADDINGTON.
My planned itinerary went to pot, The Jewish Museum was closed, and I couldn't find the entrance to the art school. So, there was nothing for it but to check out a few interesting shops in the area, lots of interesting products at interesting prices, but I didn’t make any interesting purchases!
DAY 10 (Sunday 4th February): FERRY TRIP
I decided to treat myself to some lunch on the Circular Quay - an expensive, but tasty, pizza and a couple of bottles of ‘Whale Ale’.
I took a ferry trip from Circular Quay up to the Olympic Park, but didn’t get off. There was some interesting modern architecture en route.
