It's Confirmed

Hooray! My visa for Working Holiday in the U.K has arrived! **And now I've paid for my ticket! **I should be on my way by the 4th of July. In case you do not know, these are my (loose) plans for my voyage:

1. Cycle from Denmark to the U.K via Italian Riviera
2. Work in the U.K to save money.
3. Cycle from the U.K to Brisbane overland.

The third part seems quite mad, but I assure you, people have succeeded before.
Doesn't mean they weren't nutters, though.

Status Update

A lot has happened since the last time folks! I have been a member of a website called couchsurfing for a few weeks now, and through the website, I have met countless other travellers. Some are from Brisbane in between travels, but the majority are people from all over the world!

A fortnight ago there was a picnic/bbq at soutbank, where I met many people, one of which was Gionata Nencini, a man who has travelled all over the planet by motorcycle (he has a fantastic website: Gionata told me that he has just arrived in Brisbane, and is having a housewarming party for his new place.

Next up was Fenja, whom I showed around Brisbane, namely Southbank, West End and the City Gardens.

And today was Dayboro Day, a festival in country town I grew up in.

Good times had. Only a bit over a month and I'm off on my adventure! (visa pending)

Brothers in Arms

I went to Brisbane city today for some training, and whilst lazing around the top of Queen St Mall, I met two other cyclists, one bike touring around Australia. Here's Shuto Takuya.

Trip to Dayboro

Here's a few of pics from touring training this weekend, out in Samsonvale. LOTS of hills!

Not many updates at the moment, I've just been saving money for the trip. Got my passport and quotes for my visa and travel insurance. Hoping to keep my July deadline, but it's gonna be tight!
