In an odd way, Laneway is the first true music festival I've been to. I went to Live 8 in Philly and various concerts, but not a festival in the Woodstock kind of way. And while Laneway wasn't in a...

If you're interested in #travel , especially in APAC, take a read over my travel site. Knowing I have people other than family read it will help motivate me to write. So if you want to hear more, read on!

I'm looking for places to post international travel stories - advice, experiences, all of it. Anyone have any suggestions? Or anyone they could put me in touch with?

Much appreciated!

Wow, I'm just awful at using social media for anything other than self-promotion now, aren't I? Well, anyway, go over to the article and tell me what you think! SEOs, you too. If I'm completely off my rocker, just put me in my place. :)

Good, relatively inexpensive gyoza. It's definitely Japanese - fun, quirky and occasionally loud - everyone who comes in the door is rather loudly greeted by all servers...and if you order sake...ooofh, lots of noise. Good for a cheap dinner, most definitely. All good gyoza, good (though less than traditional) miso soup as well. Try the eggplant too!

Extensive breakfast/brunch menu with some excellent all day options, I went for the breakfast bruschetta which was amazing and generous with the feta. Would definitely go back there. Big enough space that it's usually fine to get a table, or if not, not a long wait.

The place is a bit difficult to find - if you're going by Google Maps directions, you'll get led to 56 Clarence Street; it's actually on York Lane which is between Clarence and Erskine. Once you get there, though, really chill vibe of the place with a great staff and solid food at reasonable prices. Had their veal ragu and was definitely worth it. Will go back for sure. Good buzzing yet outside the norm CBD coffee spot for a quick break from the workday.

$11 lunch special for meat curries is one of my go-tos. I've never had any bad experiences here, nor have any of my co-workers. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a cheeky cheap curry around the Rocks.

Excellent smoked meats - they have their own smoker in the back. If you're looking for a budget-friendly option, the sandwiches are at $14, which gets you 100g of meat of your choice and some coleslaw topping - more than filling for a dinner. You can buy their barbecue sauce as well.

A better than your standard pub. Good food, great beers on tap and above all a really good vibe. Gets a nice buzzy feel (even when you're not buzzed yourself). Great place to check out for Anzac day, they do a good two-up.

Their known for their sticky chai for a reason - very good. Overall, their breakfasts sway a bit more on the savoury than the sweet side, which isn't my usual - the poached eggs were cooked to perfection, though (which I can never do myself) and all my friends were just as satisfied with their meals. Would definitely return.
