hey im heading to Australia on the 8th of November for sometime up to a year, im starting off in cairns but only staying there a week with a friend, then were heading to adelaide for a few months, and then im pretty sure we'll be heading to the rainbow serpent festival! which sounds pretty awesome..

i have no idea whats happening after that except perhaps perth in feb, but if anyone fancies meeting up for a spin ill be taking my lovely staff with me (although will probably buy/make a new one) or perhaps some intense intoxicated philosophical conversation, or even just inxtoxification (!) devil thatd be cool... and if anyone knows any totally wicked spots to check out let me know too im always on the lookout!

beerchug peace biggrin

welcomeG'day mate! Come and visit me in Alice Springs. We've also got a big rock, lots of pebbles and a canyon. And from Cairns to Adelaide, well the Alice is practicaly on the way!!!

If you are in Cairns, you have to 1.see the reef, 2. go to Mareeba on the cable car, 3. twirl with the people on the beach. By the way I can highly recommend Tropic days or dreamtime (both nice backpacker hostels).

Anyway, have a great time here in Oz. sunny

hm, pinecones, my favourits!

If you need a staff in Adelaide, Ben-ja-men makes some pretty cool staffs biggrin
Then there is the regular friday night twirl here in Adelaide, so you should be able to get some good spinning time while here weavesmiley

i stupidly told the people i had the staffs in my rucksack, i shouldnt have said anything but i thought if they found them it would be worse right? but next time i reckon we'll either just post them or smuggle and not say a word...keep schtum, definitely!

didnt make it down last night as this guy was taking us the wrong way to everywhere and said that there was no bridge on king william street....but had a good night anyways pretty spontaneous... next week maybe..!

hey hey merry christmas and happy new year! ben we wont make tribea were stuck in mundulla, a little town outside bordertown, the car broke down, again, in fact we got it fixed and then it broke down again straight away with something else...even if we did get everything fixed in time to get to melbourne for new years were too skint to get tickets, im so annoyed about that...but will definitely DEFINITELY be at rainbow, ive heard so much about this festival i think ill sell an organ if im still strapped for cash! (not that many of my organs are in working order.....)

but yeah, all you adelaidians? steer clear of somerton used car lot on brighton road, the guy is a swindler, and totally screwed us over, if your passing by do us a favour and call him a nasty word!

take it easy guys and enjoy the rest of the festive season

Well, we'll see you in Brisbane if you make it up here! I presume you know about the weekly Monday night juggle jam and full-moon night Moonfest.. both have been huge lately!
Good luck with work! THere is usually loads of work up this way, by the way, with hospitality jobs and fruit picking...

eeey! got me an interview tomorrow so hopefully i can work and save and get back on the road again, were ditching the car, and my travel buddy is ditching me for mundulla...! (and her lover...)

heard lots about brisbane, and pretty keen to check out moonfest! there is a possibility i may go up to cairns till the end of march, then down to perth for a quick couple of months tour up the west coast and then back over this way.....but im still undecided... bounce bounce2 bounce
