AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 27 Aug 2008 | Views [1022] | Comments [3]

I didn’t bother going to bed this morning. I just packed my stuff, called a cab and went straight to the airport at 5am to catch my flight to Sydney, which would connect to Vancouver. For those of you who have ever thought about going partying ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 Aug 2008 | Views [717]

Well this is it, the end of my Adventure draws near. I’ve killed a kangarro, shot camels, nearly ran over old ladies (oops did I let that slip?), hung out with cowboys, and absolutely thrashed the rental car. Jason and I packed our things, or rather ... Read more >

Day 3 - The Race is On!

The jetlag must have played a part in keeping me awake this morning because I felt as though I just slept 9 hours. Nice! We loaded up the car and drove to the Hughenden Show grounds to get some shots of the camels getting ready for the race. By ... Read more >

Day 2 - Making a Game Plan

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 21 Aug 2008 | Views [776]

I woke up feeling hungry this morning, which may have been because my last meal was at a gas station in Winton, a small town on the drive between Longreach and Hughenden. Wasting no time, Jason and I got our gear into the freshly ‘roo dented rental ... Read more >

The Adventure Begins!

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 20 Aug 2008 | Views [990] | Comments [2]

As I stepped off the plane is Brisbane yesterday, I was filled with excitement for the adventure that lay ahead of me. This was my first time in Australia, and I didn’t quite know what it had in store for me, but I knew that I would soon find out! ... Read more >
