Fraser Island, Brisbane and around - last days in Australia

Friday, 21 Nov 2008 | Views [1346] | Comments [1]

Today is my last full day in Australia. It's a beautiful country, and except for a certain few fellow travellers, is filled with really great, hospitable people. But next time, I'm getting a four wheel drive, which you really need to experience Australia ... Read more >

Cairns, Australia - it begins

Thursday, 25 Sep 2008 | Views [944] | Comments [5]
