So after a long stint of not writing anything I check into a hostel down here for a little r&r after working on road trips for the last few months and meet a fellow traveler exploring the east coast on a bike after fucking cycling from Sweden to Istanbul then flying to Brisbane with his bike. I again get inspired to keep writing. He's blogged his trip (it's in Swedish mind you) Google search for Carlmannfors.Blogg.se
His pro tip was to forget about the last things to write about and start afresh from today. I've let myself down a little and not blogged the entirety of my south East Asia trip be will have to get round to it when I finally get down to Adelaide and meet with Jack again! Miss that big guy!
So anyways. Today, I decided to take a trio to byron bay to tick off the legendary hotspot in Australia. Turns out it's schoolies, so all the 18 year olds are out In force booking up all the hostel spots so I may not be able to stay in the same room tomorrow. Cest la vie.
Check in though is at the yha at Cape Byron, easy car parking underground and a typical hostel kitchen, and the vibe is pretty good. There's karaoke I might go and join in on, persuaded Carl to come along, on the condition I sing. I'll get a free drink though so there's a win out of it.
Back to real life... I'll make a promise to myself to keep doing this, it really only takes me 5 minutes if I put my mind to it!Read more
