The Safari Experience: Africa Documentary

Back in 2008, five members of the Forbes Flyers jump rope team, including myself, travelled to South Africa for the FISAC World Jump Rope Championships. We placed 3rd in overall double dutch.

I never actually posted this video series on YouTube for whatever reason, until now! Here is the 3 part documentary I made 5 years ago, featuring the competition, the safari, and all of our travels in Africa.

Oh, don’t forget to swoon at the lions.

In the Land of Gandalf: Australia, Part 8

Once the study abroad program ended, a few of us travelled to New Zealand before we went home for good.

Can you spot a Hobbit?

Farewell, Sydney: Australia, Part 7

This penultimate episode of Two Biddies and a Bloke documents every little detail of our final days in Sydney. We have Thanksgiving dinner, see some wild kangaroos, and give the whole city one giant hug goodbye.

Next up, New Zealand!

An Aussie Halloween: Australia, Part 6

Towards the end of October, something happened to us Two Biddies and a Bloke. We saw Christmas decorations. Everywhere.

There’s nothing more shocking than seeing one holiday occur before another, so seeing Christmas trees before Halloween even took place was completely jarring. But since Australia doesn’t celebrate Australia (something which is now changing), we had to make due with what we had.

Which meant celebrating Halloween like us Americans would.

This installment also sees us going to the Opera House to see “Blue Planet” live, in concert. We also woke up at some ungodly hour to watch the sunrise at Bondi Beach. What good travelers we are.

Enjoy.

Greetings from the Great Barrier Reef: Australia, Part 5

Since America’s fall is Australia’s spring, us Two Biddies and a Bloke got to have a second spring break in a year! We took the time to travel around the country, from caving in the Jenolan Caves, to dolphin watching in Port Stephens, to scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, and bungy jumping in Cairns.

I can hardly breathe after saying all that.

Join us as we explore new heights and depths in the world. You won’t be disappointed.

Hangin’ 10 Down Under: Australia, Part 4

The end of September brought on a week of eternal craziness. In a good way. The Two Biddies and a Bloke found themselves taking a field trip to the shopping-centric city of Melbourne in Victoria. We travelled the Great Ocean Road to spot kangaroos in the wild and to view the beauty of the Twelve Apostles. The day following our return to Sydney, we climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. For real. And just the next day, we took off to just south of Sydney for a weekend at Surf Camp to learn how to surf (or just to do it for the photo).

Did I mention that all happened in ONE WEEK? Study abroad hasn’t failed us yet.

Hang ten with us below.

Just Like Mary-Kate & Ashley: Australia, Part 3

Well into our semester in Sydney, Australia, us Two Biddies and a Bloke decided to ramp up the fun in the land down under. This video  blog takes us around Manly, to the Powerhouse Museum, to the famous Toronga Zoo, and to Luna Park, Sydney’s amusement park-turned-famous from the Mary-Kate & Ashley flick, Our Lips are Sealed.

The whole thing is basically a marrying of the night and day.

Antics beginning in five…four…three…

BFFs With Kangaroos: Australia, Part 2

The second installment of Two Biddies and a Bloke continued with an excursion to the Blue Mountains. Along the way, we stopped at a wildlife park to pet some koalas and (omg) play with and feed kangaroos.

We realized that after we hiked to the bottom of the Blue Mountains that we had to get back up somehow…what were we to do? Take the world’s steepest roller coaster of course!

Scream away.

Lost in Oz: Australia, Part 1

The adventures of Two Biddies and a Bloke begin here, with the first installment of our video blog/documentary series as we study abroad in Australia. We kept referring to the entire project as video blogging, but it more or less turned into a documentary of adventuring through the land down under. I approached the entire production as illustrating our assimilation of three Americans into Australian culture. Whether or not that venture succeeded is up to my viewers.

This installment features our meeting the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge along with moving into our apartment in Sydney.

Fly away with us.

Preparing for 4 Months in Oz: Australia Documentary Promo

In light of my impending fall semester in Australia, I realized that I knew I was going to end up making a video blog/documentary about all of my travels there, like I did when I went to South Africa in 2008 (I’ll be posting those videos later).
