the 8th of january
This morning wake up at take a bus. another bus ans a train for what??? just to do some fruit picking!!
So ready for 9hours of travel!
I was lucky because when I was arrived The backpacker tell me that I'm gonna work in a shed!! That means I'm gonna work inside! So cool because for the moment the tempereture is around 43 degres!!!

the 13th of january
I start to work since 3 days now. Really boring!!! But it's still better than be outside. And clean grapes is not to complicate.
For the moment I'm gonna work 7 days a week, that means money and nore place to see after that!!!
But ok where i live the the moment? In fact I live in a backpacker who pick us up every morning to go to work. But it's not a real backpacker : we live in many differents house like we were roomates. So for the moment I live with 2 italiens, 1 irish, 1 german, 1 finish, AND 2 french...oh no 2 french!!! I'm gonna speak french all the time..not good!!

the 25th of january
Still in Mildura. I can stand the french guy I live with. When you see him you understand why so many people have a so bad opinion about us!!!
He is always drunk. he want to smoke inside, and the worst one day he said that one of us stole him 70 dollars! So he decide to looking for his money in our bags! You can imagine that everybody in the wasn't really happy!!!
And sorry to say that but like he always drunk, perhaps he only spent his money but he can't remenber!!

the 5th of march
Last days in Mildura. Now I have enought money to travel again so tomorrow I'm gonna take the bus to go to Adelaide and see Knagaroo Island.
Spend 2 months in Mildura was really long but like this I have enought money to travel for more than one month and to discover (at least) the wonderful Australia.
But it's gonna be hard to leave Mildura because I met so many nice people (like in NZ)
Kaapo (finish) So funny...Alessandro and Paolo(italians)fruiti de mare...Anabelle, Marie and Yannick (french people)nothing to say just french but nice (strange isn't it???)...Paul (american)I only met him yesterday but i love is project : he sold all his stuff and now he gonna travel everywhere in the world : at least for 5 years!!!...Katie (canadian)so nice and always happy however she broke her toe, she had an infection in her eye...And so much others...
