Part 4. The dingo pack and life outback.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 May 2009 | Views [2396]

Soon after it was time to eat before the 4am dry heaves started 12 hours too early. We stopped at the Halls Creek roadhouse where everyone's name could have been Bates, Bundy or Manson for all I knew. Spratty took affront to Mr. Roadhouse's service ... Read more >

Perth must be the capital of Western Europe.

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 4 Apr 2009 | Views [1277]

I'm out West, and I know it. If I didn't, most signs, businesses, and products have a reference to the 'West' in them. We're not East Coast and we're damn proud of it! I can't see that as a good enough reason to shoot someone, but I offer many thanks ... Read more >

I should have thrown some dry, smoked and dirty grapes over my left shoulder.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 30 Mar 2009 | Views [1954]

Farmers should quake whenever they see me approach their fields. I have the cursed touch of Midas' evil twin. All harvesting work I do carves through profits like a one man economic wrecking ball. I am the best thing to happen to any farms ... Read more >

Crazies chase me away from the cornfields.

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 15 Mar 2009 | Views [6470]

The train to Melbourne rattles soothingly along the tracks that carve through a brown and barren Victorian countryside. The environment is dried to the point of kindling combustibility, but it seems that luck alone saved ... Read more >

Rotten to the core.

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 7 Feb 2009 | Views [1583]

After a fond farewell to our Canadian duo, we high-tailed it out of Hobart leaving a Hansel and Gretel like trail of money behind us. We planned to cover the state in four days and were aware most of that would have to be ... Read more >

Have I spent enough to own part of Tasmania?

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 7 Feb 2009 | Views [2587]

The Apple Isle. A tasty destination if ever I heard one. But as delicious as it sounds, the only people licking their lips were the people catering to / cashing in on the tourists. Towns are so small and devoid of business ... Read more >

Going north on a south bound safari.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 15 Dec 2008 | Views [2095]

Easily earned, easier spent. With no particular goal entertaining my imagination, hoarding my savings seemed counter productive to me personally solving the world economic crisis. Not much was happening in Cairns, except for some hobo picking a fight ... Read more >

Back to the real world.

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 19 Jul 2007 | Views [1701] | Comments [1]

Employment! Who ever thought it was just for the unlucky? After staring down the barrel of work so back breaking that I sweat and cramp up at the thought of it, it seems both Adam and I will spared from such hardship. After a long, arduous and challenging ... Read more >

A few buses too many.

CAMBODIA | Friday, 9 Mar 2007 | Views [5340] | Comments [2]

29 hours. 3 buses. 1 border crossing. 2 missed meals. 11 lady finger bananas eaten. 600 baht saved. 1 sore, sleepless and shitty traveler. Again the open road beguiled me, and rewarded my love of its exciting unpredictability with another ass pounding ... Read more >

Goodbye Laos; hello stomach bug.

LAOS | Thursday, 22 Feb 2007 | Views [3277] | Comments [3]

Who knows how long I spent at Don Det but it was over a lot quicker than I wanted. 5 minutes, 5 days, 5 years, who knows? I have aged a bit, but that has more to do with yet another bout of paleness. Perhaps a large intake of Mekong water infused my ... Read more >

From deck chair detonation to Dantes' dead bum express.

LAOS | Thursday, 22 Feb 2007 | Views [1903] | Comments [1]

Oh beautiful Vang Vieng! How sorry I was to leave your warm hazy embrace. Again you have become the highlight of the holiday and forced me to declare it to be the best place in South East Asia. And to have to leave you after one short week. Can my memory ... Read more >

One boat; one sore bum.

LAOS | Sunday, 28 Jan 2007 | Views [1842] | Comments [1]

Time for movement. We were leaving Chiang Mai, and Thailand, even though all of us were still praying for a different sort of movement. No big changes loomed ahead though, as Laos is very closely related to Thailand. Laos is still quite unique though, ... Read more >
