Definitely in.

Could you do us a favor? In addition to the landscape photos and vids, would you mind posting a few of the cities you're in as well? Thanks!

On Wednesday morning Trev came to Bernies place with his Tiger so we could have a test ride for my front wheel. Trev took me into the near by Barossa Valley one of the finest wine-growing regions of South Australia.





Because the Barossa has been a settlement area of German immigrants I could read German names everywhere :)



I couldn't feel any negative disturbance caused by the front wheel.
But my bike had its first fail on this tour – a light bulb.

Because I needed a photo for my Christmas card I went to Middleton with Trev on Thursday.
In a small town on our way Trev asked me if I might need something from one of the best 12-volt stores, located in this small town. In deed I wonted to buy a special cable and they had it in stock :)





The photos at the beach in Middleton came out just perfect. And yes I only carried the surf board to the beach to take a photo









For lunch we were invited by Mr & Mrs "Steelpony" ( www.steelpony.com.au ).
After a lovely lunch Mrs Steelpony fixed the broken buckle on my RokStrap.







Perfect work and a lot better than buying a new one! I was amazed one more time about a the helpful people Trev knows.

Hi Dominik,

Merry Christmas!

I'm loving your stories, thanks heaps.

And I've noticed a distinct improvement in your command of the English language, at least our Aussie version of it - "...ride in pissing down rain....".

Cheers
Brian L

For Friday evening I had an appointment with Rod, whom I meet in Perth at the HU Meeting, at the York Peninsula. So I leaved Gawler in the morning and spend most of the day exploring the peninsula.





Our meeting point was the Jetty in Moonta Bay close to Rods beach house.





We spend most of the evening with a big BBQ.

The next morning we went on a fishing trip and we have been successful.





We caught around 20 Garfish, 6 Tommys and a Squid.





Been so successful at fishing means there will be a lot of work cleaning as well.



But I had to learn it first so it took even longer :)





With so much fish we had a massive Fish & Chips feed in the evening.
