Australia is one of those countries, like the US, that was designed to be explored by road. While there are some great train journeys for overseas travelers to experience, most notably the Ghan, which travels from Darwin in the north to Adelaide in the south, due to the distances involved and the sights along the way, hiring a car or mini bus is hands down the best way to explore the Great Southern Land.

From the Vault: On Location in London

With the London Olympics starting tonight with the opening ceremonies, we thought it would be a great time to dig up some never published photos from our archive of Natalie and Britney from our trip to London as part of our 2006 World Tour. We spent a day hanging out with these two beautiful models as we caught many of the sites in this iconic city, and you can see many of the London tourist spots in the background.

The first group of photos have Natalie and Britney hanging out in a classic London phone booth. Naturally these things are obsolete these days but in London they blend in as part of the beautiful architecture and scenery. We spent a lot of time in Soho so many of the photos from the first have of slideshow above are from that trendy part of town.

We made our way down to Parliament and got some nice shots in the park nearby. Later in the evening, the girls changed into heels and dresses and we went out in an area near London Bridge. The photos at dusk with the bridge in the background are great, and you can see one below with others in the slideshow.

We finish it up with the girls having fun posing in a London taxi, otherwise known as a hackney carriage. These classic taxi cabs are another site you'll see all around this classic city.

If you're in London for the Olympic Games we're sure you'll enjoy it. It's one of the great cities of the world and we loved our time there. English food isn't very good, but as a world-class city London has amazing restaurants, particularly excellent Indian food and amazing sushi. That said, the city is incredibly expensive. Don't bother going unless you have a real budget, as everything from hotels, food and taxis are ridiculously expensive.

In any event, enjoy the slideshow and the Olympics!
