Learning to fly Pilbra style
12th April 2004

i'm now in karratha with uncle tim and aunty judy. an amazing couple whom i've never really had the chance to get to know before. inspirational at the least.

16th April 2004

so traveling is about experiences, and i've had the best one yet.
flying a small plane through massive clouds was AMAZING.
i got to fly uncle tim's plane most of the way from karratha to broome (600 km), except for take off and landing! flying through the clouds is something i always imagined would be cool to do, following the contours of a cloud, flying through gaps, slowly swooping and and turning as though you're dodging a 7 story marshmallow at 9500ft.
FUCKING ACE, my mouth was wide open for half the flight !

also to confirm an earlier travel entry there really isn't anything here, plenty of nothing as far as the eye can see.
it's a whole lot nicer from above though.

landing in broome...

20th April 2004

I'm now in broome, again, it's dry season now and 30 - 35 every day, you have to love broome, i'm learning to surf. the surf is maybe 2ft high! so, learning to dodge big arse jelly fish is more accurate. but mostly i've been on the beach in a ute.

see the legendary holden HK in my little video with a jack johnson soundtrack. it's apt.

at the moment i'm looking for a job, but with as little effort as possible. there is so much not to do here, if i have a job it will really get in the way of stuff. - like today for example i made a 44 second video!

About my travel log:
I'm making this for a number of reasons, firstly i'm writing to my family and friends without the inconvenience of mile long group emails. secondly it's my unloseable diary. err... and i guess it's here for the world to read too.

Thats right! Why not have a picture of something you haven't done or somewhere you haven't been as your desktop picture at work !
