sydney adventures…

hi bloggers!  we’ve been having an amazing time here in sydney.  we actually had a few days off to enjoy australia, see the sights, and most definitely enjoy the journey.  our good friend rachel greig and her husband stewart (owners of darkroom door stamps here in oz) were so kind to offer to take us around to see the sights of sydney.  we went to coogee beach, bondi beach, and then headed into sydney to enjoy my first ever meat pie at the famous “harry’s cafe de wheels” complete with potatoes & mushy peas.  we also took a ferry ride through sydney harbor to luna park to check out this iconic amusement park and watch the sunset with the sydney opera house and harbor bridge as a awesome backdrop…

however the highlight was most definitely climbing the sydney harbor bridge…

oh yes, our group of 10 took the 3+ hour bridge climb adventure to climb over 1500 steps to the top of the sydney harbor bridge – what an incredible experience, and spectacular views of sydney!  the group included myself, mario, rachel, stewart, alain from ranger, his 3 wonderful sisters who traveled to sydney to join the fun, and chad and nicole from stamp-it our aussie distributors.  i’m telling you it was something i will never forget!

so for the next couple of days i demo at the craft show here in sydney before teaching this weekend to another 250 students, and i can’t wait.  having a great time in a land down under…t!m

  1. Wow Minecraft is fantastic, although it could be ten years old I’m a minecraft
    addict now. Best thing is I can run it on my mini notebook so
    I can play Minecraft wherever I want. I have a problem though and
    – Gulvafslibning Kurt Gulvmand must be a high quality
    website so hopefully someone can help me. Will there be an official Minecraft modding platform?
    Many thanks. luv Minecraft beta

    So glad you are getting to ‘enjoy the journey’. It was such a full on start to your trip (plane issues etc) in Brissy and i’m glad you have been able to have a look around while you are here. It would have been a shame not to experience some of the awesome possibilities our beautiful country has to offer.

    Hi Tim!
    WHAT an honour and joy to to learn from you in Sydney this week. I am so inspired, going back to work is going to be difficult. Can’t wait to have some crafting time. It was a pleasure to meet you, and get to know you. Thanks for all the inspiration and education.
    Enjoy the rest of your stay in Australia.

    Just dropping back in to enjoy your adventure!!

  10. Sometimes I contemplate if folks truly take time to publish something original, or are they only just dishing out words to fill a site. This certainly doesn’t fit that mold. Thank you for taking the time to write with awareness. From Time To Time I look at a page and question whether they even proofread it.Fantastic work with this article.

    I was so amazed and delighted to be in your class on the 18th in Sydney ( silly girl in second row who burn herself on the heat gun 3Xs…oh DOH and, who has now just told the whole world! LOL) Anyway I just wanted to say Thankyou. Thank you for coming down under… thankyou for being such an awesome, entertaining and delightful teacher !!! As well as your amazing knowledge, your friendly approachable attitude was what made the day. I learnt heaps and am looking at Ranger products of allsorts, as new “must haves” in my crafty tool box. I had to travel over 500 hundred km to attend your class but I certainly “enjoyed the journey” of a lifetime!!! Thanks!

    I know I have to go to Australia someday. I want to see the outback and the Opera House. I do not think I would conquer the bridge! Thanks for all the sharing……

    El nuevo escudo antiara?azos de Nissan se presenta como un soplo de aire fresco para los amantes de iPhone, ya que ahora podr?n mantener su teléfono como nuevo durante m?s tiempo. La marca ya ha producido un lote inicial de prototipos de la innovadora carcasa con escudo antiara?azos para que la prueben algunos periodistas y clientes seleccionados, pero si la demanda es elevada, se plantear? ponerla a la venta a finales de a?o.

    I sure hope you are having a great time.. Since you haven’t posted in a few days I am hoping a kangaroo or crocodile (no not crop-a-dile– although that would hurt too (!) didn’t get you!

  21. These photos brings back so many good memories from my Aussie adventure a year ago!! Thanks for sharing yours with us 🙂

  22. Awesome bridge climb photos. I did that climb a few years ago, not long after they first introduced it. I must admit, it is the best thing I have ever done!Loved it! Can’t wait for you to come to Melbourne – very cold here at the moment!

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this blog. He was entirely right. This put up truly made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time I had spent for this info! Thank you!

  24. Karenajo says:

    wow, that is a lot of steps- but well worth the climb it appears !

    Someday I would love to go to Australia. Out of all the places in the world I have looked at in magazines, books and on line it seems to appeal to me the most. The rocks, the water, the building structures look amazing. It would be about the most spectacular dream vacation on earth. HOPE you enjoy every single bit.

    I climbed the bridge with Oprah. The worst was climbing back down. Loved it.
