Touring Australia

Follow me as I blog my way around Australia.

The motorcycle leg of this journey started in Darwin. I had the bike trucked there and flew to meet it from Sydney. I rode solo through The Kimberley, The Pilbara, Shark Bay, Monkey Mia, Kalbarri, New Norcia, Perth, Fremantle, Margaret River, Esperance, The Nullarbor Plain and back to Sydney via the Adelaide Region and The Great Ocean Road.

As you might imagine the whole trip was an incredible experience .... I'm ready to do it again!

No One Here's from Here!

I'm in Darwin and it's 34C on this cool winters day!

i'm in an an open air - air conditioned cafe located on 'The Esplande' so I'm enjoying an ocean view, 5 Star service and a fair bit less sweat than most.

I just might find myself sleeping rough for a few nights over the coming weeks so I figure I'll take care of myself for the few days I'm here waiting on the local BMW to uncrate the bike. I shipped it up from Sydney last week. Should be ready Tuesday they say.

I really enjoy Darwin everytime I'm here. It is home to a squillion Irish back packers each winter, the US Military and just about every enthic group on the planet. Oh yeah there are some Australians here too.

Before I forget, i'll be patched into HighlandFM with John Sider driving the mic on each Monday at 1.00 PM until I get back to Sydney in October. Tune into 107.1FM if you are near the Southern Highlands or south of sydney (as opposed to the Southern Highlands near Vegas) and have a listen.

John has promised me not to ask any difficult questions... like where are you or what time is it? Once out of Darwin I tend to lose all sence of time and space out here as it is truly a step back into geographic time.
