    Such a leisurely start to our trip. Packed early, lovely catch up with Connor then Uber to airport. Check In smooth, no queues. And to our new favorite place- ‘the house’ lounge which is a part of our priority pass which comes with our credit card. So peaceful no crowds- champers, great food , table service even southern comfort for Royce. So happy. A great way to spend a couple of hours waiting for a plane.Read more

    car fixed, check!

    November 10, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    This morning at 6:00 I woke up because of loud knocking on my car window. I opened my eyes and saw the police! Oh shit.. I opend the door and asked me if I was Allright. Then they said a neighbor has called because of noise pollution. Probably I was snoring to loud and now I gonna Get an ticket. Wft man, what were these guys thinking. Go fetch some criminals man!. Haha no just kidding, they asked me if I was Allright, and a neighbor called because he was worried. So they Said, go back to sleep. Crazy thing to start the day with. But I slept for a short time.

    Finally they started to fix my powersteering of my car. I was asked by the mohamad (mechanic shop owner) to do some work and sell some stuff and get some money. So I got some work pants.

    I helpt the another mechanic to get my back door fixed, he couldn't get it open. And I could, he looked surprised and thought I was joking. Haha so happy my door and powersteering is working!

    Now refreshing oil, replace oil filter and airfilter. Get my dual battery system working and make the floor for the Matress better.

    I went to Bunnings (kind of gamma) and I had to laugh about the power plugs and switches they use for power.

    This evening I stayed @ the house of mohamad and had dinner over there, it was so nice! He has 5 children and needed a big house.

    Tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday I'll be working.

    work weekend

    November 12, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    Thursday I arrived at the house of mohamad. I waited till they came home. At 22:00 they made some dinner for me. I slept in my car in their garden.

    The next morning I had some decent breakfast and started to work. We had to sort all kind of boxes with michelangelous stuff. The idea was to sell this Sunday at a market. So today helping packing and Sunday selling stuff. The dinner was with thin bread like the bread you use for eating rotti. Together with stoved meat and unions. It was pretty good. Never had it And it's something else! They are so kind to me, I get everything, drinks, food. And as much as I want.

    Saturday I fixed their lawnmower and did some cleaning in the shed and outside the shed. The dinner was raw meat, Some vegetables and some potatoes. With the meat you put some olive oil on it together with some raw onions and with the thin bread you pick some raw meat and eat it. It was pretty good, I didn't expect that. So hopefully I'm not getting sick from the raw meat :-P.

    Sunday we woke up early to pack the ute and trailer for the market. I went together with the dad of mohamad. We put all our stuff on the tables. And a few people where coming. It wasn't that busy. We sold some stuff. But it was not successful enough. So we had to bring a hole lot of stuff back home. It was a fun day and learned a lot about selling products.

    Afterwards mohamad and I cleaned in frons of the shed. I also managed to make my 2nd battery system working in my car! Another thing finished. In the evening I had also a goof conversation with the father of mohamad about religion and moslims.

    Now only new engine oil and filter. And I have to finish the floor properly. Tomorrow I'll also help mohamad with some stuff.

    Drive to Sydney

    February 19, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    This morning I woke up later. And I left around 10 am. First went to 2 waterfalls. They were really nice to see. On the way in the car I could see the mountains where I drove yesterday on the Dirt bike.

    I drove to the bigger city Albury to get some fuel. It was a few cents cheaper over there. And then I took off towards Sydney. When I turned up the main motorway I saw on my navigation I had to drive 500km straight! Damn that's a long road. And I didn't have cruise control, so I made my own cruise control :-P it did work okay but not perfect because you go uphill slower and downhill faster. But it's better than a deaf feet. On the way I saw an rocket car pass me! How cool is that? In Sydney I made my tea in some park, I was there around 6 and at 7 closed the park so I had to hurry a bit. I was just 18:59 outside the gates :-P

    Then I went to my friend mohamad and I stayed there for the night.

    In the end it took me 7 hours to drive to Sydney it was almost 700 km from wandiligong.

    September 15, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    I stayed at my friend in adelaide and we did some slack-lining. That was really cool! It's basically walking on a rope without holding anywhing.

    In Tuesday evening I started driving with my car towards Sydney. I drove about 250km. The next day I drove to gulbourn. I had to stop there because my car started to run really crappy. So I slept there and started the car the next day and everything was fine. On my way to Sydney the car started to run crappy again. But after 10 minutes it was over again.

    I drove all the way to my friend mohamad. And helped him with a job. The next day I met up with another friend and did a hike in the royal national park. That was really nice.

    In the end of the afternoon I drove towards the city centre. Halfway my car started to run really crappy and I could barely get to a side road to get a safe spot.

    There I called road assistance and they came after an hour and told me the pickup sensor from the Ignition was bad and had to replace it. The car still runs fine if it's cold but when it's warm then it gets problems. it was to far back so I got towed away for free because I was an premium member. Then I got an free cab to the the hostel I was staying (normally $140 for the taxi!).
