The next morning I haven't received anything from the potential buyer of my car. I'm getting a bit grumpy and sort of frustrated here because I really want to sell my car since I am running out of time and it is quite a lot of money as well. Even Jonny seems to notice that I am in a down
mood and suggests to drive to a very nice Gorge to take a swim and cool off. This Gorge is amazing! Little waterfalls, boulders, small pools and a place for cliff jumping. It is nice and quiet, and I start to feel better already. A few of Jonny's friends join us. On of the guys I meet is a Dutch DJ under the name SQL. He's signed on to the label of Secret Cinema, a Dutch Techno hero. We have a nice talk about music and parties. He tells me he's playing a set tonight in Cairns and that I should come. Of course I am on the guestlist he says. This day is getting better an better and seems to have turned around completely compared to this morning! After dinner Jonny and I head to town to Bar 8 for some pre drinks. When we're finished with a few drinks it is time to move on to The Lounge Club, yes it is time to party! And finally some proper
Techno music :D Everybody is having a good time and I finally had a little Techno party again. The next day I receive a message from two German girls who are interested in buying my car. I drive to their hostel, we take a testdrive and they seem to like the car. So let's talk money again! My price was 1200 dollars. These two sweet, little German girls respond in the following way:
'So... We give you 800 dollars for the car because it is old and you need to sell it.'
Me: 'You must be kidding! We agreed on 1200 dollars over the phone, of course I won't sell you the care for 800!'
Girls: 'Ok we give you 1000 dollars, final offer.'
Me: 'No deal, 1200 dollars is the price.'
Girls looking at each other and hesitating.. : 'We only have 1000 dollars..'
Me: 'You can have it for 1100 dollars, and if you don't take my offer I walk away now.'
Girls: '.... Uhmm... Ok deal!'
Yes! I've sold my car !! Ok, so I've lost 600 on the car, that was something I held into account. My plan worked, travel Australia by car for +/- 1000 dollars including gas. And that is exactly what I've accomplished. This has been one hell of a weekend and made me a very happy man :D
