My last night at Woodford i was withoot a tent (Naomi and her tent had to leave) i just had a canopy that Naomi's friends had brought and were still around fortauntely. And i was also fortunate enough for it not too rain when i wanted to sleep or no high winds. There was some rain and a lightning show earlier on during the closing ceremonies that certainly kept me on my toes but it all worked oot without me or my backpack getting wet....for a lovely sleep ootside!

The next morning i packed up camp, and got a random call from John out of the blue. John, is a retiree, from Brisbane that i traveled with for a week in Romania aboot 2 yrs ago. He just backpacks around (but seriously takes his time cuz he has it) constantly and consistently each year and sometimes comes home for a month. He was home! I was headed to the airport though unfortunately (via bus, train) so didn't have much time.

John offered to pick me up from the bus station and he took me on a wee tour for the 4 hrs i had to spare. We went to Bribie Island, not far from Brisbane...relatively wee island that's good for fishing and surfing (if only i had've known). We went to the Lawn Bowls for lunch and then wandered and caught up over beer and coffee. It was lovely! Its really nice to meet up with people again that i traveled with, that i met so randomly, whether it was for a day or's always so easy.
