Volleyball in Melbourne

Posted by Tim Riley Sat, 02 Dec 2006 12:08:00 GMT

I’m in Melbourne this week coachying volleyball in my eighth Australian Volleyball Schools Cup. It’s shaping up to be another fun and exciting (and no doubt tiring!) week.

You can my team’s results on the web, and also look at the results for all of the Unley High teams.

Photos!

Posted by Tim Riley Sun, 04 Jun 2006 13:06:00 GMT

It has been a couple of weeks since I got back from my trip to China, but I finally have put all the photos online! I have a set for the photos from China and one for the photos from Singapore. Check them out! The trip was an amazing experience. I got to meet some fascinating people and my world perspective was certainly broadened. I am going to start some mandarin classes in a couple of months!

In other photography news, while I was in China I bought a new LG KG328 mobile phone, which is the first such device I have owned that includes a camera! So lately I have been happily snapping and flickr-ing my cameraphone shots as well. It is handy having a compact device that can take photos because it means you don’t have to miss out on capturing anything.

Finally, Archie and Jughead and all the gang have all been jumping on the web2.0 photosharing bandwagon lately. Take a captain: Vidar, Docpi, DD, Syngin and PB. And of course Marco will readily point out he was the first one of us all to get his flickr on.

Gone fishing...

...in the Yellow Sea. Back in 10 days.

Tomorrow morning I go to China! My old man and I will be visiting Baoding, Beijing, Taiyuan and Singapore. I may flickr up some photos and blog a bit depending on what time and connectivity are available. Otherwise, I see you all again in a week and a half! Woo!

On a jetplane

Posted by Tim Riley Tue, 02 May 2006 04:28:00 GMT

I’m going to China in a few days. So far I have:

  • My passport and visa ready
  • Enabled global roaming on my phone
  • Checked that I remember my MasterCard PIN number
  • Bought new shoelaces

Before I leave I plan to:

  • Withdraw cash, which I will convert upon arrival
  • Move some money to my credit account, which I can use abroad

I’m not a seasoned international traveller. Is there anything else I should consider?
