    First hair cut in 3 months

    December 21, 2016 in Australia

    George's mens hair salon / barber shop is where the transformation took place from animal to human.

    Not only was it my first time to get a hair and beard cut together, but to top that with a beer in hand was epic.

    All barbers should offer free beer while you get a cut, thats just the way it should be.

  • Day47

    Unser Morgen begann gegen 9.00 Uhr auf dem Skypoint Observation Deck in Surfers Paradise. Denn in unserem Ticket für den Themepark von gestern war dieser Aussichtsturm noch gratis mit drin. Der Aufzug ist in gerade einmal 43 Sekunden auf den 77ten Stock gefahren! Von dort hatte man eine echt schöne Aussicht auf Surfers Paradise.

    Und dann ging es ab nach Brisbane!
    Gegen mittags sind wir in der Innenstadt angekommen, und dann ging natürlich erstmal die Parkplatzsuche los. Allerdings wurden wir nach ein paar Minuten unterhalb des Kangaroo Points fündig. Da es außerdem Sonntag war, durften wir den ganzen Tag dort gratis stehen.
    Zu Fuß ging es dann am Fluss entlang bis zur Southbank vor. Dort haben wir uns erstmal ein Eis zur Erfrischung gekauft und auf die Wiese gelegt. Denn in der Southbank gibt es künstlich angelgte Pools, sogar mit Sandstrand!
    Nachmittags ging es dann über den Fluss rüber ins Stadtzentrum. Dort sind wir noch ins Rathaus, da dort auch das lokale Brisbane Museum ist. Dort gab es eine ganz interessante Ausstellung über die Bewohner von Brisbane und wie unterschiedlich sie sind. Da dieses schon um 17.00 Uhr schließt, ging es dann für uns zurück ans Auto. Denn um 18.15 Uhr treffen wir uns mit Nadine, die hier Au-Pair macht, in der „Eat Street“. Die Eat Street war eine echt schön gemachte Ecke voller unterschiedlichen Fressbuden. War natürlich auch mal wieder schön mit Nadine zu quatschen und ihre Erfahrung von Brisbane und Australien allgemein zu hören.
    Da die Eat Street sonntags leider schon um 20.00 Uhr schließt, ging es kurz später wieder ans Auto für uns zwei und auf Schlafplatzsuche.

    The first day job

    February 20, 2014 in Australia

    I met a lot of other backpackers at Bunk, a lot of fun and friendly people. The more you travel, the more you get to trust other travellers, I’d only been in Australia for a few weeks but I started worrying about the job situation. One or two shifts as a glassie per week at Bunk, I needed to get more funds in order to break even.

    I picked up a couple of manual jobs here and there, a crate unload one day was a nice introduction to Australia's heat (see photo attached, it was hot as hell in there!)

    A few other guys at the hostel were working as removal men so I gave that a go for a couple of days. It’s funny how after managing to move about three houses worth of stuff in one day, it makes moving house seem less stressful than a lot of people make it out to be. It doesn’t take as long as you’d think. Unfortunately though I ended up pulling my back out deadlifting with Ben in the gym and I don’t know what happened to my thumb but I couldn’t put any weight on it and it still bothers me to this day. I got it ultra scanned up in Cairns about 7 months later and I’ve got a ganglionic growth between the bones or something that needs surgery to fix but it’s a really risky op, so 1, it’s expensive and 2, if they fuck up I’ll be a lot worse than I was to start with. You use your thumbs a lot, especially if you only have a phone to type onto when you’re on a 30 hour bus from Vientiane to Hanoi!
    Anyways, back to history.
    At this removal job I spent my first few days working with a crazy Brazilian dude, can’t remember his name but he was fun to work with. We picked up heavy stuff from out of houses and storage locations, it would have been a good job if not for the injuries. I wouldn’t have needed a gym membership at least.
