On the road with Jack Kerouac

Morning all! Much has changed in our 2 weeks in Australia so far....Phil has ditched us for a high flying job in Sydney and Nick and Coops have set off up the coast in a campervan. Many are dubbing them as the modern day Jack Kerouacs, but I don't think they had in-car DVD players or Dolby 5.1 surround sound during beat America! It is travelling nonetheless and we are communicating with the locals, mainly by shouting 'how ya going' which basically means 'what is your name', 'where are you going', 'who are you', 'what are you' in ozzy speak. The trick is to say it loudly especially in awkward early morning bathroom visits amongst the large population of OAP's that have decided to travel up the coast at the same time as us.

Despite this we have seen and done a lot. Notably Fraser Island and flying across the rain forest and landing on the beach, spotting a few dolphin along the way. We are now at Airlie Beach ready to set sail across the Whitsundays and snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. Sweet deal.

Here is a picture.


Good bye!
