It’s not often I wake up on the floor of a boardroom.

I couldn’t say the roads were busy but there wasn’t a time today where there wasn’t another vehicle in sight. Ive arrived at the east coast of Australia which means I’m on the last part of my journey to Sydney. As I headed south I realised how much I enjoyed riding in the outback, the massive open space with hours and hours of monotony, I really enjoyed it, the camping, the people, the vastness…

The east coast of Australia is as I expected, busy and western. I’m not sure I want to be here I thought!

Australian hospitality was on offer again tonight, Mark & Linda offered to put me up for the night at their lovely house at Lake MacDonald which was in the hills about 20km from Noosa, a very tranquil and beautiful house and area. Being keen bikers and travellers themselves we had a good evening eating, drinking and swopping stories.
