U2, Live in Sydney (The Joshua Tree Tour)

U2, Live in Sydney (The Joshua Tree Tour)

On Saturday afternoon we headed to the SCG to watch U2 live, on their Joshua Tree Tour. Friday’s performance had received less than stellar reviews, predominantly due to kilometre long queues (in the rain), sound issues, and the lack of a big screen, so I was a nervous to say the least.

The Sydney 7s

The Sydney 7s

My rugby (union) viewing, since having left South Africa, has been disappointing to say the least. I’ve watched snippets of the Sharks games on YouTube, but that’s where it ends. So when a mate asked us to join him at the Sydney 7s, we jumped at the offer. After roping in my cousin, we caught …

Running in Pune, India

Running in Pune, India

I’m currently in the enjoyable position of frequently travelling to India on business. While I spend 99% of my time in the office (or hotel), and therefore don’t get to see as much of India as I would like to, I do make every effort to get out and about as often as I can. And the best …

Getting A Toddler A Passport At The Scottburgh (Park Rynie) Home Affairs

Getting A Toddler A Passport At The Scottburgh (Park Rynie) Home Affairs

We arrived at the Park Rynie (Scottburgh) Home Affairs at 7am where we joined an already long queue. Starting at 7:30am people were let into the building in batches, which meant that everyone else was left standing outside in the baking sun. Sharon and I took turns at sitting in the shade with Emma, while the …
