ticky2002 What the most liveable city is not... // Melbourne
This city seems so clean, quiet, empty, ordered, non-chaotic, unalive, non-smelly, cold, dry, under populated, smooth roaded, not-moulded, less stare-y, so familiar, unbroken-down, too urban, unnatural and just doesn't seem as interesting to look at or interact with in comparison to what I experienced in KL and North Sumatra.
At the moment it is making me feel more and more like earning money to travel back again...

ticky2002 Airport Accommodation // Medan, Indonesia
Due to our enjoyment in other areas, our final night in Indonesia involved/involves 16 hours in the airport, of which only four more are remaining before we take-off. Will's now swapped me his hammock for the bench, so I'm trying my best to picture the perfection that once existed on the outside of this awesomeness, oh Iboih...

ticky2002 Pinch of Precipitation // Lhoknga, Indonesia
We have a couple of lovely coconuts, diddly-dee...
So glad we've had a lot more sun than rain this trip, especially considering it is the wet season. Today was beautifully bagus, but the wet is showing itself now!!

ticky2002 Exceptional Experience // Pulau Weh, Indonesia
I am now a certified Open Water Diver!!!! :D ... with one of the best parts of the course being when we saw a shark!!!! :D
Pictured here before my first Certified Dive with the owner and dive masters of Scuba Weh, and also my brother - what a fabulous experience it was to get to dive together. :)
A range of fears and emotions were faced, but I am so glad I gave it a go and learnt what a wonderful world exists under the sea. Pulau Weh is such a beautiful place both above and below the water, sad to be leaving!!

ticky2002 Incredible Indonesia // Pulau Weh
After 24hrs of travel including a car, plane, taxi, shuttle, bus, ute, ferry and then a bajek, with multiple stories to tell; we've just arrived here at Mama Mia's, so please excuse me whilst I take in the view from our AUD$10/night bungalow and deliberate over whether to ever leave or not...
I've not even been in Asia for 72hrs, but oh my, what an absolutely mind-blowing sensory overload of awesomeness it is and has been.

ticky2002 The Malaysia Mix // Kuala Lumpur
Well, what I have noticed the most here so far is the variety and diversity of people, places and things. Whether that is why I feel so mixed up myself I'm not sure, but I think it could well be a contributing factor. I can't actually believe I am here and seeing and experiencing it for myself, it feels like a dream...

ticky2002 Sweet Spot // Melbourne Airport
We haven't even started taxi-ing down the runway yet and this trip is already proving it's worth. Seated in the centre, but have this spare seat between me and the aisle. Woo!! :D Kuala Lumpur, come at me!! :D Oh, and they just started playing Valerie! So good.

ticky2002 Spectacular Sightseeing // Port Phillip Bay
This little groover is seen casually photobombing Paul's picture on his way past at the beach below Point Lonsdale Lighthouse...
** Two weekends ago I had the lovely pleasure of joining a great group of people for Day 2 of the Geelong & Bellarine Instameet. We enjoyed a beautiful morning out on Port Phillip Bay with so many special sights including dolphins, seals, forts, lighthouses, beaches, piers, quarantine buildings, 1800s technology, gannets and more. What a day!! Cheers guys :) #geelong_instameet #visitgeelongbellarine

Point Lonsdale Lighthouse is lit from the North but guides ships to/from the South through treacherous waters where many have met their maker. It is one of the last few manned lighthouses in Australia...

ticky2002 Spectacular Sightseeing // Queenscliff
Queenscliff Observation Tower has quite a commanding presence up above, where I'm sure you would get even more superb views of the scenery. When we were out in the dredged channel that leads to Bass Strait a laser shone in the top circle with green, red or white to let us know our position in the 300m wide channel. This, along with the numerous lighthouses, helps the large ships to accurately plot their course through the channel for a safe passing...

ticky2002 Spectacular Sightseeing // Port Phillip Bay
Out in the middle of Port Phillip Bay is this man-made structure that has been built as a breeding platform for the Australiasian Gannet Breeding Colony, one of the only known places where they breed on an unnatural structure. These large sea birds would circle out and around to come down and land, but if they missed their spot would keep going and try again, to avoid a big ruckus with the rest of the colony. Beautiful to watch and admire whilst out on the bay...

Not too far off the coast from Portsea sits this structure, known as the Chinaman's Hat for obvious reasons, which is home to a number of fur seals. Lazing about in the sun and carrying on with their counterparts seemed to be the way of life for these stinky guys, but with a view like that I don't blame them for wanting to just lay back and take it all in. Apparently the water here is too shallow for sharks to come and attack, but it wouldn't surprise me if they aren't hiding somewhere under the water not too far away...

There is a Dolphin Sanctuary just off the coast from the Point Nepean Quarantine Station at Portsea where around 200 endangered Bottlenose Dolphins live, some of which we were lucky enough to see... just metres from the boat! Watching these beautiful creatures glide through the ocean so close to where I was standing was absolutely spectacular and a sure highlight of my day!!
