      January 23 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

      Nächstes Land, nächster Kontinent! Für etwa eine Woche legen wir einen Zwischenstopp in Australien ein und überqueren die Datumsgrenze. Von nun an sind wir nicht mehr hinter der deutschen Zeit, sondern voraus.

      Eine Woche ist definitiv zu wenig Zeit, das war uns vorher natürlich klar - wir müssen ein anderemal wieder kommen.

      Sydney gefällt uns auf Anhieb sehr gut und ist sofort eine unserer Lieblingsstädte geworden. Den britischen Einfluss sieht man nicht nur an Linksverkehr im Land.

      Mit mehr als 5 Millionen Einwohnern ist Sydney die größte Stadt Australiens - aber anders als viele denken, nicht die Hauptstadt.

      Neben dem Opernhaus gilt die Harbour Bridge als größte Sehenswürdigkeit.

    • Day 23

      lot of driving in Sydney.

      October 9, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

      Yesterday I did a lot of driving and walking wat not my best idea ever was. But I got some timber and today I made my floor in the car. I tried to connect the fridge. But unfortunately my inverter isn't strong enough and have to sell my to big fridge. I also got another fridge witch is a bit smaller and works on 12v. So much better. Now only have to figure out a good way to mount the solarpanels on my roof.

      The traffic here is quite weird. Besides driving on the other side of the road they have traffic lights before and after a crossroad. See the picture. Also the speedlimits, that's so NOT handy. They got 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100 and 110. So in the city I drive together with other traffic or else I drive just as hard as I think It should be. I don't know how fast I can go everywhere. But I just drive. The most dangerous things are roundabouts. Everytime I look to the left in stead of the right. Had because of that already almost 3 accidents.

      My friend Ryan was driving with an rental car with some others of his ultimate Oz group. He drove once @ the wrong side of the road and he couldn't go to the other side because the ways were separated from each other. Luckily there was nobody and a driving lane where he could turn around. Else he would definitely had a flat nose. Alswell he and the car.

    • Day 31


      March 2, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      Every year in Canberra is the Enlighten Festival. A number of the major buildings are lit up and one is open to the public. Apart from being quite a spectical it is also a cleaver way to engage the younger generation into all things Australian, Art, Politics, History etc. Once again we arrive with impeccable timing. The Old Parliament Building was open to the public. This was the original seat of government until 1986. When they moved buildings rather than clear everything out they left all the contents behind, offices,chambers,desks even typewriters and fax machines giving a slightly eerie feel. We visited the Prime Ministers office and the main chamber. Then had a walk around the other buildings which were being illuminared. Then back to the flat for some yummy birthday cake.Read more

      2nd jump day

      October 8, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Today I finally could jump for my STAGE 3. Everything went well until 1 JM let's me go and came up front of me I started to turn slowly. After the other JM releases me I started to spin quickly. And he came back to me and pulled my Parachute. So that's not a good thing. With the landing I flared (brake) to quickly and dropped like 3 meters to the ground. The landing was pretty hard and I bruised my heel. I did put some ice on it and It didn't swell as much. I couldn't walk on my heel it was to painful. So I need to rest my feet couple of days or maybe weeks. I'll see. Luckily it's my left heel and I got an automatic car!. So driving is possible.

      After I'm fit again I can do STAGE 3 again.
