The roads are full of retired couples driving Caravans. The outskirts of Aboriginal communities are littered with beer cans and drunk individuals. The day begins and ends with waves of birds, kangaroo and bandicoots, and I watch as the moon begins again. The scenery is slowly changing from Savannah to tropical as I make my way east to the coast. My body aches from the hard days of riding and I look forward to a few days off as I get closer to Cairns.
Julian Thanks for these posts. if I ever travel, I think I’ll skip Austrailia and head straight to New Zealand. Trouble is I may never come back if I find Rivendale. PS Forward, never straight.
Hey Carla!! Good to hear from you! I do think you would like it over here although Rivendell is always the most desired. I also hear that Tasmania is quite nice in the right time of year. Alexis tells me that you guys are renting a cabin in Shaver this year? Lets see if we can all get together!! I will be down!! Maybe Jay and Robin can come too!!
Where is your position right now my friend? How are you? I hope that you’re fine!
I am in Atherton, QLD. It is very cold!! I miss the Bakso!!
The Aboriginal people are sad. We found the same situation 30 years ago while traveling that area
It is very sad and to many people it seems like a hopeless struggle against alcoholism.
