Noel offered me a bed for a few nights which was a welcome relief after spending the last week or so in the cold tent.

I needed to buy some stuff so at 11am I went out, shortly after the police pulled me over as I had a UK number plate, after I showed them my documents they breath tested me. I asked them why and then discussed the police with various people and it seems they breath test everyone whenever they pull them over, another example of Australia controlling everything the people do.

A few days at Noel’s was great and prepared me for the next stretch towards Sydney. Noel is a great guy who has helped many RTW bikers with his hospitality, he has a great outlook on life and goes out of his way to help travellers. Thanks Noel.
