I'm afraid I'm not able to post as often as I would like at the moment as my work is taking all of my mental energy - sorry for the scarcity of posts!
We did manage to sneak away recently to the Western Plain Zoo in Dubbo (about 6 hours away from Sydney) with group of Sydney Dykes on Bikes. Talk about a fun-filled weekend of animals and wine-drinking!
You can stay onsite in the fancy Savannah cabins, right near the giraffe enclosure - I would definitely recommend it. You can see them galloping around in the morning mist - it's pretty special.
Yes, our friends are nuts.
Sometimes you just need to get away, and this surely is the place to do it.
