Sitting in a cafe…

I’m writing this on my iPod in a cafe in Singapore. I just got back from the Asian cultural museum, which is one of the better museums I’ve been to on my trip. (oddly enough, japan and Korea weren’t mentioned). I finally got a cell phone yesterday. I haven’t had one in over a year. …

Singapore

I made it to Singapore and so far I’m enjoying it. I’m staying at the apartment of my college roommate Dave, who is a professor at the University of Singapore. Singapore is much as I remember it: clean, efficient, modern, and very green. There are some changes which I’ve noticed, in particular, there are more …

See Ya Later Aussie

I’m bound for Singapore in a few hours. I’ll probably get to the airport a bit early just because they have free and fast internet access there. Much better than what I can get in Darwin. I can’t believe I’ve been here for more than five months. I originally intended to be here for about …

Back from the outback

I’m back from my trip to Uluru. We slept under the stars (literally), and froze our asses off. The swing in temperature in the desert is really crazy. It went from -3C (30F) to 21C (70F) in a single day. It is a reoccuring theme with me, but I am not equipped to deal with …

Going Outback

Tomorrow morning I leave for three days in the bush. I’ll be sleeping outside under the stars. This three day trip was cheaper than a two day trip, so I figured “why not?” I get back on Friday and I hope to be in Singapore by Monday. As far as I can tell, flights to …

Alice Springs

I’ve made it to Alice Springs. From Coober Pedy to Alice Springs was about 850km (510 mi). In that distance there were zero towns, cities, villages or communities on the road. None. There were three road houses where you could buy fuel, but that’s it. North of Alice Springs it is pretty much the same. …

Cya Coober Pedy

I’m off to Alice Springs tomorrow at 5:30am. The bus schedules out there are really odd. I took a lot of photos and video the last few days and hope to be editing them over the next few days. Coober Pedy is a very unique place. I’m having a hard time trying to explain everything …

Wells Fargo Still Sucks

Guess who’s favorite bank suspended his debit card again while he was out in the middle of the Australian outback?? Wells Fargo, I hate you with the hate of a thousand suns.

Coober Pedy

I’ve left Adelaide and am now in Coober Pedy, South Australia. This town is……unique. The place i’m stayin is 15 feet underground. Many of the buildings here are underground, built by miners looking for opal. The town sort of looks like Tatooine from Star Wars. My bus arrived at 5am and I slept until 11am. …
