After ending our stay in Maitland (near Newcastle/Hunter Valley) with a great family BBQ at our lovely Couchsurfing hosts (unfortunately you can’t read about this in detail as the MobileMe notes synchronization decided to delete my blog post), we headed straight on for Sydney to meet up with a very good friend of ours from […]

Castlepoint Lighthouse

We went to Castlepoint last night and I spent the evening and early morning taking pictures :) Too bad though, that they switch off the light of the lighthouse at 7am!
