Where I stayed
Our Pikey Van

Flag of Australia  , Queensland,
Saturday, August 2, 2008

Well Cairns was great but time to get the ball rolling, our Bunk Mates in the Hostel, Rickie from New Zealand and Andrea from Italy, advised us that the best way to see Oz was if you had a car, we informed them that we didnt so we decided to invest in one, so we marched our way down to Peter Pans (no not the boy that never grew up) and got ourself the hottest pair of wheels Oz has ever seen, its called "god is love" and its right.
As you can see from the Pictures its a little Hiace Van rented from Wicked Vans and it has everything, kitchen, bedroom, an outside bathroom its the bizz.
So on my merry little way hoped into the front of my mini pikey and off i go... Port Douglas.
Arrived safe and sound you'll all like to know all the camp sites full so, i pulled into the nearest place possible, a public church car park, right up beside the "dunny", no better spot in of the Port.
Got cooking on my little gas fire (well Sein got cooking) and ate our lovely little meal on the side of the car park, on our little camp chairs and table (all included in the wonderful hiace) and then off to the pub to mix with the locals.
Had myself a stubby beer and off to bed, only woke up at about three in the morning to a shoppin trolley coming right at us, three Ozzie little fuckheads decided they would ram my poor little home (for the next 4 weeks that is) so i did what any normal person would do, told them to fuck off and got out of the van to chase them down the road in my knickers. Dont worry they must have been able to see through steel as soon as the door of the hiace opened they were gone like shots. Little fuckheads, but hey if thats the only bad thing i encounter then onwards and upwards. Market then the following morning, car park full of mass goers and shoppers but hey they didnt distrub our breakfast, and then we're on our merry way, Cape Tribulation next.

Well I actually laughed out loud at that entry! Mad things! Sounds like you are having a ball though!

We will have to try meet up when we overlap... cant remember where that is though! We fly to New Zealand tonight (11th) get there on the 13th and Shane gets there Sept 4th and we get to Sydney on Sept 15th... right bit confusing I know! sure let me know..

Keep enjoying yourselves! Put me to shame by travelpod is totally out of date!
