Well, Fredrica got us to Darwin. Some doubted her but she never let us down. It was a 25 day road trip from Perth to Darwin and it was great. Met alot of cool people along the way. It is a bit strange being back in an urban environment again. There is fuck all to do here in Darwin during the day. I am staying at Chilli's Backpackers and it is pretty good. Have met a few people here that I met along the west coast. The night life is good here and there are couple of good places to go. Was in The Vic, Shananigans (token shite irish bar) and a place called the Lost Arc.

I have put some notices up in 3 hostels here looking for some road buddies down to Melbourne. Have had quite a few replies already. Leon is not sure if he is going to continue down the middle with me. He needs to work to earn money for the rest of his trip around NZ and South America. Susui a german girl that was going to travel with me on the first roadtrip is here and might come with me to Adelaide / Melbourne. It cost a whopping $1200 from Perth - Darwin and will cost about the same again to Melbourne so ideally I would like to have 4 people. The car is massive so it should not be too much of a squeeze.

It's been good just chilling out between roadtrips here, but beginning to get board of Darwin now. I think you need to be working here to spend much time in Darwin. It is very humid as well. No flies though so that's good.

That's all I have to say for now...

Until the next road trip, Adios..

G'day mate!
G'day mate!

You seem to have a great time in OZ. I'm want to go to Darwin too, it's not fair =) haha but I'll be back and do the rest later with Kati I hope.

We haver been in NZ for a month now and Kati went home today. I'll go back to OZ for a couple of weeks on the 6 of march after that Thailand before I have to go back home.

NZ is nice but I like OZ better. Have been driving around in a pink campervan called Barbie and she drinks more than your crapcar. Is the car still working allright?

Have you heard anything from Val or Franzoar?

Have fun! Hugs from My

Cracked cylinder head
My car was going really well until I got to Alice and then there was a huge bang and the engine died. Water was spillig out all over the shop. Mechanic said that it was a cracked cyclinder head and it was too expensive to fix it. The garage gave me $100 so I cut my losses. I am in Melbourne now which reminds me, I must update this blog.

This is a family blog Dan, so I have to leave all the juicy stuff out. hehehe...

Later,

Dave
