    (Not so much) Skydiving Nagambie

    March 16, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Wensday I came late in the afternoon at the dropzone. There was nobody there and I just left to another campground 10 km away. Also I had Internet over there but didn't on the dropzone. I cooked over there and then watched a movie and went to bed.

    In the morning I slept a long time and also watched a movie just after breakfast. Then I went to the dropzone. Again almost dead but I expected that cause of the rain this morning. I talked to an instructor and I could jump tomorrow but most likely not a B-rel. But that's okay, I wanted anyway to do a solo and then maybe a 2way.

    In the evening wen I just finished with dinner there was another guy coming. He was an American backpacker. He was awsome, I tried to give him some left over pasta but unfortunately he was allergic to peanuts. So he had a bit of a reaction. Sorry mate! But he'll survive. He was already traveling for 4 years and been all over the world. Also on a lot of dropzones. He has around 200 jumps so a bit more than me.

    Catching up with Ben

    October 28, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Found a good app, Moovit, that helped me get trains and busses from Essendon to Chadstone Shopping Centre to meet Ben for lunch. Great app!!
    We had lunch in the food court there then caught another bus to his house, I haven't been there yet. Lovely house and street!! One of his 4 flatmates parents own it. Met 3 of his flatmates today -lovely lads, one of them made me a cup of tea ☕
    From Ben's place it's only a short walk to the Mt Waverly train station. The train goes straight into Flinders Street, jump on another that comes straight to Essendon then a short walk to Jimmy's. Easy peasy, didn't need an app for that one!
    Jimmy's back from his Festival

    Time for me to go home

    January 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    This morning I take the hire car back to Hertz at the Perth Airport. In Albany a lady put a ding in our car but it isn't too bad. I didn't own up to it and it wasn't noticed so hopefully we won't get billed for repairs!!
    I get into Melbourne and when I ring Jimmy to get me, we deiced I will get the Sky Bus into Southern Cross station. I only have time for 1/2 a coffee before he, Lauren and Will meet me and then we go to a lovely pub nearby for a few drinks. We end up having tea there too. Then we train home to Maribyrnong.
