Andy & Mel Arrive!!!

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 5 March 2008 | Views [969] | Comments [1]

Hi All, just thought we'd put a message to let you know that we've arrived on the other side of the world safe & sound.  The flights were pretty good but unfortunately when we arrived at Brisbane Airport our tour guide 'Ed "Mrs Chalmers" Bird was no where to be seen - so whatelse could we do but sample the local ale - even tho it was 7:30 in the am and we were left for about 3 hours!!! Consequently when "Judith" arrived we were slightly worse for wear!!!  We travelled into Brisbane and our first stop was the XXXX brewery tour which culminated in numerous free samples.  We then grabbed a quick bite to eat before retiring to bed pretty god damn early!!!  Got up this morning and picked up the hire car and proceeded to travel North to 'Rocky' via Rainbow Beach.  Arrived in Rocky about 7:30 tonight and have been in the bar pretty much ever since!!!  Tomorrow we are on a trip with 'Capricorn Dave' - a cross between Steve Irwin & Jackass - so that promises to be interesting!!!  Well that's about all for now - we have another night in Rocky tomorrow before we head out to Longreach.  Will be in touch again soon.  Lots of Love Ed, Andy, Mel & Lepricorn Dave xxxx

Dear Andy Mel, and Judith (Sheila)
Well what better way to start your adventure than to be paralytic in the airport bar before you even get cracking! Boys will be boys! Were you in any fit state to look even slightly intelligent whilst looking around the XXXX brewery? Then I guess the free samples just added to the problem.
Our life back here seems very mundane! Yesterday the electricity went off for 13 hours and it was snowing outside just to cheer us up! We too had an enforced early night trying to read by candle light! The power came on around 1am but by then it didn't really matter any more as we were busy making ZZZZZZssss.
Such is life on Swales Moor with just the odd Kangaroo hopping along behind Rick.
We do hope your trip with Capricorn Dave was interesting and that you have resumed your normal stance by the bar in The Oxford with The Jones'es working overtime and Horse teasing you all as he did with us.
Continue to enjoy yourselves and keep updating the Blog as we really want to follow your travels.
Take good care LOL Mum & Dad XXX
