So, after two and a half months, I have finally left Busselton, just as the weather turned dark and stormy and turned the generally pleasurable pastimes of the area to miserable, cold pastimes. Now, like many backpackers of yore, I am heading north to follow the sunshine up the edge of the Western Australian coast. Road trip! Today we left Busso and drove up to Perth. The road trip is in a car belonging to an Australian girl named Donna who came into Busselton two weeks ago and was working at the grape packing job I was at for the last three weeks; Ian and I, having decided upon a plan of going northwards, determined that she was the most likely car-owner to have the same desire, and we talked her into joining us. It was weird to pack up the caravan and find out that I'd somehow accumulated 19 shirts while in Busselton (mostly cheap from the red cross shop, but still) and had to toss a bunch of clothing out. Also weird to move into a new hostel and a new city after being so long settled.
