Aug 30, 2013 - Moving forward

Well hello :D it has been a long time! In thought I would update this as the next stage of my adventures start in 4 days! Can you believe I have been in Australia a year?! Time flies so fast... I have had the most incredible year here...Australia is the most amazing country and I am so lucky to be here. I have made some friends for life and I have had the best experiences :) Having just been through Australian winter it is safe to say that the Aussies have it made as far as weather goes!! The winter here was equivalent to a standard...

Jul 27, 2013 - Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder #2

A dopamine blur. Whilst the temptress recalls with scary clarity places and spaces, for me it is vague traces of faces. Let me say at the outset, the remarkable Spike Milligan got it right, when he said the great social, political and ecological issue of our age is overpopulation. The idealist in me thinks we can avoid the historic answer of pandemics and warfare to thin out the mass of humanity. I hope we are able to thin out both the girth and production of the stock- the realist in me is far less certain. We have seen both in abundance...

Jul 6, 2013 - "We're Leaving Home"

The 11 hour flight dragged. Lots of crying babies and just strange how the cabin was dark the whole time as if it was nighttime - I think so people could see their individual screens. Boys all watched heaps. I just chose one really inappropriate film - The Impossible - about a family in the tsunami. Dumb me.

Apr 7, 2013 - Perth, Roadtrip down south west, wwoofing

03.04 Ich lande um ca 09.30 Uhr Ortszeit (musste die Uhr 1,5h zurueckstellen)in Perth. Ich finde den oeffentlichen Bus (fuer 4$, der Schnellbus kostet 16$) und fahre in die Stadt. Ich weiss nicht wo in der City ich aussteigen soll. mein Ziel ist die state library, da es dort Internetzugang gibt und ich mit meinem Gepaeack nicht zuviel laufen will. Ich versuche mit meinem Handy zu orten, wo ich auf der Karte bin. das gelingt mir auch. eine frau sieht meine versuche und nimmt mich einfach mit. sie ist braslianerin und lebt seit ca 4 Jahren in...

Neil & Susan both had to work so I amused myself. Walked into Fremantle & looked around the shops then drove into Perth with Neil who had to call into his IBM office for a few minutes. I figured that dining out was the last thing Susan wanted after a hard day at work so we got some beautiful Chinese take-away.

Had bacon & eggs cooked on the BBQ then had a very pleasant drive to York, Western Australia's oldest inland city. Had lunch at the York Mill although I really wasn’t hungry after the big breakfast. After we got home Neil & I watched the Malaysian Grand Prix then had a beautiful Cassoulet Susan had cooked in the slow-cooker while we were out.

The alarm went off at 6.30am as today we were heading to catch a ferry at Perth terminal around 8.30 to Rottnest Island. Trying to find a safe overnight park near the terminal was easy especially when you get a police escort,they had roads blocked off for an event so a motor bike policeman said he would escort us.lol What a gorgeous day the sun is shining and there's no wind a perfect day to cruise the bays of Perth,we found a great seat at the back of the ferry ordered a coffee and a cookie and sat back and enjoyed the great views. The...

Neil took the day off work & we walked to the fishermen's wharf at Fremantle for lunch of fish & chips at Cicerello's (the first of many, I'm sure). Then we wandered across the road to the Shipwreck Galleries & had another look at the Batavia. Neil & Susan have recently been to Geraldton & flew out to the Abrolhos Islands so he was very interested & up-to-date with the Batavia story.
