Sexy Babes Freeway Hotel Sydney was my entertainment before flying to Brazil. The entertainment was so good I missed my plane & had to book for the day after. My old friend Peter Hesky owns the Freeway hotel & like myself is a fanatical AFL Sydney Swans fan. He shuns publicity so I’m sure when one of his whistle blowing friends sees this post they will alert him & I will get an e-mail requesting changes. My message is don’t waste your time, this is my life history & it stays. 🙂

However being a generous man I have included links back to the Freeway Hotel to help his traffic. 🙂

As you will see towards the end of this post we have had some great private functions at Peter’s hotel & the food provided is absolutely the very best as was the service.

Here is the man himself

Long time friend now living in Adelaide Roger Williams.

What a fabulous city

I was born & raised in the beautiful city & still get goose bumps every time I fly back over Sydney.

Another incredibly busy year for travel including Belem at the mouth of the mighty Amazon , Fortaleza on the north coast of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, Buzios, Cabo Frio & another great trip to Tuscany & Portofino.

Two trips to Sydney including a wedding & terrific family Xmas plus one trip to Melbourne for an AFL weekend. Yes, 2006 was another great year.

The food was so good extreme measures were used at the Freeway hotel restaurant to take our mind off eating. 🙂

Oooh! it’s so hot in here.

Author: David Herd

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ???? Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
