Anh and I had the most splendid weekend when we visited my brother in Albany.

It was a 6 hour bus ride to get there but was good fun because Anh kept me company (we did nothing but eat in the bus hehehehe).

Chicko rolls for the bus ride

Now I said 'splendid' because thats the impression I got of this small country town.

Its like a very cosy little english village.  The weather is very cold and houses look the part.

Its a beautiful town and one I'd definitely visit again.


Above is a picture of Albany's peaceful protest against the construction of a new building. Take that you construction company - eat our socks!

I'll visit Albany again because Mark tells me there's fishing to be done!  Hehehe. Speaking of fishing, my brother surprised us all by taking us whale watching!  It was such a cool adventure.  Our captain was funny and charming and he really made us feel like we were in an adventure to catch Moby Dick.

Thankfully we didn't have to wait very long to spot some Humpback whales!

Man these things are massive!! (I'm kicking myself for not brining my telescopic lens!)

We did lots of sightseeing - Denmark was just as beautiful (although the town was so empty!)

Best of all it was nice to spend time with my bro again.  We watched the soccer that night and ate home made leek and potato soup with pan fried snapper.
