[This time, the T-Team with Mr. B scale the heights of the highest mountain in South Australia, Mt. Woodroffe. Even back in 1977, Mt. Woodroffe being on land owned by the indigenous people, we needed permission and a guide. Don’t know what happened to the guide back then, but we had permission. The situation has changed in the 42 years since we climbed…more about that later.
Many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for the opportunity to share the T-Team’s adventures in outback Australia.]
Many thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi who has offered the opportunity to post the T-Team adventures now as a series for all to enjoy travel in Australia.
[The T-Team with Mr B — In 1977, Dad’s friend Mr Banks and his son, Matt (not their real names), joined Dad, my brother (Rick) and me on this journey of adventure. I guess Dad had some reservations how I would cope… But it soon became clear that the question was, how would Mr B who was used to a life of luxury cope?]
I must start by thanking Mohamad for inviting me to write a guest blog. It’s a great honour!
My inspiration for this post is taken from our original interaction back in February this year, when Mohamad was the very first parent to comment on my blog. I started blogging to share information and ideas with mainstream classroom teachers and parents. I wanted to raise awareness and share tips that can make our lives simpler as parents and teachers, but more importantly, I hoped that my blog might support some students who otherwise could get lost in the vast labyrinth of education. Mohamad’s comment on that early post let me know that the task I had set myself was worthwhile.
Philadelphia is a historic city that’s very rich and diverse in culture. It’s also known as the “City of Brotherly Love”. Many flock to Philadelphia to take a stroll down the cobblestone streets in Old City, visit the Liberty Bell at Independence Mall, take a run up the Art Museum steps (while yelling Adrienneeee in your own Rocky Balboa’s voice) or to gobble down our world known Philly Cheesesteaks. I’ve been a resident here for almost 20years and I can’t image growing up in any other city. Philadelphia is a fast paced city during the day and offers an eventful nightlife. If you’re single or have a family there’s always something here for everyone to enjoy. Please click on VISITPHILLY.COM for attractions and events.
Thanks to Mohamad Al Karbi for being a supportive friend in the blogging world. I appreciate the opportunity to share the story of my recent vacation to my home, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada in his Around The World category. I will be writing a different story on my own blog to connect it to this story, and the link will be at the bottom of this submission. Happy reading!
