Turban t-shirts R us

Sat 19th November 2011

Here’s Matt and Matt enjoying some rays after the race. They were both wilting a touch in the heat, so got creative with their muddy t.shirts.

Matt

Matt says...

Trekking through the mud reminded of my time in ‘nam. Here Matt (the other Matt) is showing off his 1000 yard stare.

You weren’t there man! You weren’t there!

Christmas countdown

Wed 16th November 2011

The Christmas countdown has begun here in Sydney. The shops are decorated with trees, tinsel and some are even playing Christmas carols.

Matt

Matt says...

Christmas in the summer! It’s going to be one weird Christmas day!

 
Claire

Claire says...

Christmas decorations when it’s 30 degrees? I’m sure we’ll get used to it, but look at the sun and blue sky in the background. It doesn’t feel right somehow does it?

 

Sydney’s best view

Tue 15th November 2011

Today we took a long walk through the Botanical Gardens, ending up on a gorgeous advantage point of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Matt

Matt says...

Finally get a photo with both the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. And on a stunning day too. I could get used to this!

 
Claire

Claire says...

I certainly won’t get tired of seeing this view anytime soon!

 

A long way up

Wed 26th October 2011

The climb to the lighthouse was 280 metres above sea level. That’s a lot of steps and a lot of pain!

Matt

Matt says...

One thousand two hundred meters at a constant incline through the jungle in Flip-flops is no fun! Won’t be doing that again any time soon. The view was worth the pain though!

 
Claire

Claire says...

It took us over 40 minutes to climb to the top and that was at a constant incline. In 33 degree heat too, phew!

 

Vettel takes it all

Sun 25th September 2011

Vettel wins the race, finishing 3 seconds ahead of Jenson Button. He dominated the entire 61 laps, making great viewing under the twinkling lights of Singapore.

Matt

Matt says...

So the race was a little predictable, but still great fun. That’s the championship all but wrapped up for this year but there should be some great action for the other places.

 
Claire

Claire says...

Okay, so I’m no F1 expert, but isn’t it a bit boring when one man wins all the time? Thank you Hamilton for spicing up the action!
