USA Trip 2009

In this short post I wanted to share some of the 6000+ images I have taken during a trip to the USA last October. The trip led me (and my wife) to 10 different states including Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Louisiana, Missouri and California.

Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens ’09

Recently we went for another trip to the city. Taking the ferry from our new place really makes even the trip an event. Anyway, we ended up in Sydneys beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens.

Trip to La Perouse & Maroubra, Sydney

Two weeks back we went for a trip to Sydneys southern beaches. First we headed towards the airport where we took a stroll in the Sir Joseph banks park where they have beatiful ducks and then we went on to La Perouse and Maroubra Beach. Apart from the driving there the trip was very nice.

Nelson Bay – Day 1
