...a few more

Got some good questions, so continuing on....

Does the water in a flushed toilet really spin the other way?

YUP! incredible..i've been trying to get a video of it but its tough. particularly because i usually only remember after using the toilet and that would not make for a very good video.

Whats the food like?

Pretty good, but nothing special. Naturally there's a large asian influence on the restaurants but aside from that there's nothing reall much to brag about. Due to the historical link to Britian who are most assuradly not known for their culinary prowess the only thing that the Australians could really claim as “local” would be their meat pies and sausage rolls.

What is the rough route for your trip, how long is it?

We drove from Melbourne to Cairns. We covered about 6500 Km's over 6 weeks. It sounds like allot, but i never really felt rushed. We saw allot and were even able to continue further north from cairns to port douglas and thr Daintree rainforest since we got to cairns a few days before we needed to be there. Point of interest...The daintree is where paved roads ended and dirt roads continue on. Without a 4wd its not possible to make it any further.

How did you get that much time off?

hmm...how to answer. I'd like to say that i took a leave of absence but the more correct term would be i was unemployed. Who needs work anyway.

Here's a few more pics.
