Well I hate to say it as it’s such a cliche, and I don’t want to spread it around….but I’m in Alice Springs, and smirking at the ‘real’ Australia…not quite so many immigrants here (Brits!) and full of Aboriginies yelling at each other and coming in to bars trying to crash cigarettes etc. And as […]
I fly to Alice Springs in a few hours, and already say goodbye to the west coast. There’s far less people here (at least for a few years yet!), and you can swim in the sea 🙂 I can’t believe I’ve been in the area for almost a week as it’s flown by, catching up […]
I’ve just updated my couchsurfing.com profile. After a hearty recommendation from a recent chat with a fellow traveller I may try this in NZ, Japan, Korea or China!
I’ve been taking advantage of having laptop internet access and have added a load of Australian photos to the Wanderingscotsman picture gallery. I’ve also added quite a few posts, and added pictures to the Whitsundays and Fraser Island posts. Enjoy!

Only got 10 mins freebie time online, so just a quickie.Arrived at my Perth hostel at 2am this morning, then got up to meet Gill I know from back home for a coffee when I woke up. Left some luggage at theirs then got the bus to Dunsborough this afternoon. Tomorrow I dive at the […]
