We reached Adelaide in two days. I wasn't sure whether we could crash at Steve's 'n' Shelly's place right away. So I sent a text and got a phone call invitation right away.
I guess we are welcome ;o)
So we happened to stay for another little while. We stayed over Easter, which was beautiful.

And we went up to Cleland with heaps of Kangaroos, Emus and other strange animals. I guess I saw 'em all now.

Well apart from that we are still here and now we might start picking beet roots, cause we definitely need a job.
I was hoping that this director they've been talking about would take me in on his movie, but I guess that would have been too much positive coincidences...

Instead they told Jan at the recruitment place that they are not applying backpackers, which is really really strange. His time is running out so he is pretty keen on going, since he's not seen the east coast yet. My goal is a little different, I'm more trying to figure out where I really wanna go, as a general life direction. And this place here right now is just perfect to be able to give it a real try.

I mean I can keep on washing dishes or cleaning tables or planting stuff, but com' on this is not getting me anywhere. I feel like I'm walking in circles and I gotta stop that.
So Jan might take a flight or another ride to somewhere. It's weird..
The beet root picking would give me the chance of another visa, but I also thought about Qantas. I gotta find out if they'd take somebody that's not a permanent resident and has a tattoo.

Well, they don't write anything about tattoos, but permanent residency is required.. hm I'll try it anyway.

I didn't try. Instead I had a lot of problems with Jan. I wanted to check out universities, study possibilities instead I agreed to keep on traveling to Melbourne. Why am I never doing what I think would be the right way for me to go???
I had a wonderful time with the Birrells, I wish I could stay, I wish life would be more simple..

Maybe I just need time on my own, nobody around me to get a direction. Otherwise I keep on following suggestions or simply pressure.

Right now it's pressure and promises that I made, so I'll go to Melbourne, but that won't solve anything..
The night before I left, I couldn't sleep. So I sat outside staring at the stars. And then I cried and I cried until I didn't have any liquid energy within me. Well the stars didn't give me an answer, I just know that I truly miss a home.

PS: I just realized, when you look at the pictures they don't make any sense to my writing, well that's probably because you never take pictures in sad moments and you never have the time to write when something exciting goes on. So the truth lies somewhere in between.
