Hey everyone!

My name is Wouter and live in a little village near Amsterdam. I am spinning poi since february and fire poi since june.

Next week I will depart from Schiphol airport flying to Honkong, Sydney and eventually I will arrive in Auckland at Saturday the 27th of October. I was thinking about buying a car and exploring both Islands.

At the 25th of December I will take a plane back to Sydney where I will stay for seven months, making a giant loop accross the continent, discovering Australia by car.

Are there any firespinners here that would like to meet down under, anytime, anywere?

See you laterz, Wouter

I should be backpacking round NZ at the same time as you, though only in the South Island.. if ye want to meet up?

By the way, you realise you'll be arriving in Aus shortly before [Old link] ? I'd suggest coming to that would be a good way to meet Aussie fire spinners. smile

Have a great trip! I know I have over here!

THE MEEK WILL INHERIT THE EARTH!


If that's okay with you?

Wow! All those replies... Thanks!

I will try to visit you all. But for now, I have a lot of stress, because tomorrow I will leave home for 9 months. My fire poi equipment is packed, so I hope I can get them on the plane without any problems.



Bye bye, Wouter

There is a group that meets under the Sydney Harbour bridge on the Neutral Bay side of the bridge most friday nights, if that's of any help to you smile
My geography of Sydney isn't the best but if that's nearby to you and/or you can get to it I can try and get a sydney'er in touch with ye biggrin

At the moment I'm staying in the Blue Parrot hostel in Kings Cross. Last Friday during Anzac Day I went to North Sydney and checked if I could see any spinners under the Sydney Harbour Bridge near the Olympic pool. I didn't see any people there at 21:00.
So if you can get me in contact with some locals, that would be very nice. smile

Hey Spinnerfreak!

I'm in Perth, and especially sinceyou'll be here in summer, there's quite a scene and plenty of friendly people.

Nov-Feb, Jedly and I will be in Africa, but after that, I'd be happy to show you round and have some spinning fun.

Yeah - SpunOut will be excellent! Not something to miss biggrin
