    Street Art

    July 30, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    We continued driving into Benalla. We did not really like this town as it was quite dirty, even McDonalds needed a good clean.

    The art work in Benalla is more like street art and is painted on the sides of buildings. However, most of the smaller art is not that good, heaps better in and around Newtown but the larger murals are worth looking at. Also, the map with directions of how to locate the art work is difficult to follow in order to locate the paintings.

    What also made this a shame is that a number of the artworks were behind buildings and had huge dump bins in front of them so you could not see the whole artwork, or they were down weird alleys, again this made it difficult to take photo's and to appreciate the artists work. Benalla council advertises the Art Trail as a tourist atttaction but are not doing it justice. There is so much potential, it's a shame they are not taking advantage of what could be as wonderful drawcard to their weird country town.

    Flying High

    June 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    What a magnificent day to glide and fly. It is quite snug in the cockpit once strapped in however foot pedals are adjustable which was a big relief.
    Going into the 360degree loop was fun and a couple of things I distinctly begins by pushing the nose down so that the glider gains speed which is a buzz in itself :)
    Then the pilot pulls back on the joystick and up, up and over you go, you lose your tummy a little which I expected.
    Overall the flight is very exhilarating as well as being relaxing which is an interesting combination of emotions.
    Oh yeah...the pilot was a guy called Kirk, so Captain Kirk seemed appropriate.
    Benalla is a great place to glide because it is very flat and gets hot in summer which creates lots of thermals.
