Allen promotes Australian Festival November 2007 at Greater Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida, USA.

Loopyplus featured 91 year old Alan Waddell a little while back, here he is again.

A perfect fit as a Wortley Street, Balmain, fence cuddles its tree friend.

Alan is wearing a T-shirt kindly supplied by the wonderful people organising the Australian Festival - Celebrating The Land Down Under - to be held November 2-4 in 2007 at Greater Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida, USA. Their website is well worth a look. Alan is helping them promote both Australia and walking.


In brief

Alan Waddell was encouraged by his doctor to take up walking. After a while, repeating the same route every day became boring. So Alan Waddell decided to walk every street in his own suburb.
In December 2002, this idea of walking every street was expanded to include neighbouring suburbs and so his odyssey began.

Alan's site WalkSydneyStreets is primarily about an unusual collection of 815 photos of Sydney taken whilst walking every street, lane, bush track etc in 244 suburbs (so far) of Sydney. There have been over 1,068,000 pages viewed by over 348,000 visitors from 163 countries (latest new ones are Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Guyana, Iraq, Mali and Montenegro) - see Visitor Countries for full list.

Below are a couple of Sydney Suburbs more colourful Murals from Alan's photos.
