I checked the clock at 9.16, cool air was blowing in through the sun roof and we were drunk of each other’s laughter.
when you’ve been living in a city for five months and you’re out of money, food and clothes. thats when I recon it is time for a roadtrip. so we took the car and left, going north from Newcastle. there was no plan but I had a good feeling that we would end up somewhere eventually
ROADTRIP EVENTUAL STOPS:
we went in our new car. or actually it is a very old car. but its our new car. his name is Romeo and he got fake flowers in the backseat we left late at night and arrived in Bellingen which is a city about 2,5 hours up north from Newcastle. its a really small but lovely town surrounded by green hills and cafés only 20 minutes drive from Bellingen, one can find Danger waterfalls. we did that the first morning there is a little path that leads you somewhere uncertain. follow that trackand you will end up here. paradise for sure we drove all the way to Coffs Harbour and made an urgent stop at the Big Banana to take a photo. in our pajama after that we made a quick stop in Woolgoolga to have some picnic lunch and watch this viewwe slept at my auntie outside Brisbane that night, making some Rainbow plans over vego pasta on the way past Brisbane, make sure to stop in Noosa Heads and to do the big ocean walk what it looks like you get to walk through the woods as wellwe also had lunch in town and its all really nice but mostly filled with expensive shops and restaurants. so we went to rainbow beach instead. there we made our first and only hostel stop on the entire trip. Frasers on Rainbow was a pub and a hostel and a kitchen all in one. we had beers and made stir friedthe beach was completely empty the next day when we went for a walkand then we decorated romeo a bit with two spray cans. he got pretty what happened later was that stina decided to book three tickets for us to Fraser island the next day, as a gift. we celebrated it all with sleeping in the car07.30 we were sitting on a bus, on a boat that would take us to the white sand n dingo island the tour took us for morning tea at a camp, after driving among the beach for an hour or so. wo got the best bus driver that was a fraser/rainbow local. he knew everything he took us to this dessert looking placeand forced us to get into this small airplane that showed us the island from above. probably the biggest adrenalin kick I’ve ever experiencedida is afraid of flying in the afternoon we got to swim in the clearest lake of australia. it felt a bit like a swimming pool but it wasn’t as soon as we got back to rainbow that day, we took off towards Byron Bay, which was about to become our final stop. we arrived 12.45 at night. not to recommend if you haven’t pre booked any accommodation. we ended up sleeping in the car. again. Byron Bay was, as expected, the best place to just hang around. I really wanted to just spend all the time I had there on sitting outside having coffees, looking for markets, or sleeping under a tree.there is also a lighthouse there that’s worth a visit. you’re supposed to walk but we took romeo all the way to the top because it was almost 40 degrees outside which was intense saturday afternoon we went to a market in town that had a perfect combination of vintage clothing, asian food and wooden jewelry the morning we left we had the best pancakes and a wifi then we left for Nimbin, which is a hidden little town in the mountains. although the town was filled with tourists the spirit of the people that lived there was very strong. we stayed and had lunch before wandering around for a bit talking to some nimbi souls we spent the last night at a camping spot in Red Rocks, that we didn’t really get to see much of unfortunately. there was a sunset and a river and a milky way that ended our adventure
So much internet to do.
hey. I went on a roadtrip and got my phone smashed by someone so I’ve been bad with the updates. anyway, until yesterday night me ida and stina have crashed at different peoples houses waiting for our room to get ready. the days get pretty intense even though we don’t work at the moment. we’re mostly showing stina around the city, walking the beaches and having pizzas at surf house. could probably live like this forever but I realized yesterday how exhausted I am and how much I’m longing for my own place. today, I will write about our roadtrip and show you the photos that I managed to save from my phone.

Great wine requires a madman to grow the vine, a wise man to watch over it, a lucid poet to make it, and a lover to drink it.
I have become a wine professional two days ago we experienced a little tour in hunter valleyto go for about five hours, including four vineyards, cheese and chocolate tasting, costed us 65 dollar per person. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who visit New South Walesfirst we went to pick some grapes. they were just about to make the winesconnors and stina were eating themwe had a private bus with this awesome driver called Tex who told us everything about life n loversthen. we had wine. about 26 different kindsI had to take the water woman responsibilitysam emptied peoples glasses after having cheese and chocolate and more wine people felt like thiswe got back in newcastle at 4pm, perfect timing for lachlan to go to work, and for us to have falafel in a park nearby. we continued the night until late at the small ballroom
Excuse the mess but we actually live here.
heya. I’m in a brilliant mode for a post now, because I just found out that we have a home from the beginning of february!! A tiny little room really, but at least it’s ours. in the centre of newcastle close to a place where I always go to write, and close to my work which is just too perfect to be true. we’ll probably end up staying there the rest of the time that we have in australia, and it will be the first place that is completely mine. after all of the couch surfing we have experienced in the latest couple of weeks this room already feels like heaven.
and thats all for now

and tell me What are you afraid of
you know we’re all gonna die
she’s walking towards you now
and instead of looking at her
you look at her body.
can’t believe your eyes when you see
so you close them, thinking you might see
but I will tell you what
there will be darkness.
until the day you face
the power of her
the power of the scars
the power of her Stars

Chaos is a friend of mine.
this is the iphone version. better pictures will come. trust methis was us 24 hours ago. since we no longer have a place to stay at we are in huge need of friends with houses. this time it was sam’s farm on the countryside, about one hour from newcastlewe went with a group of nine people. this was what it looked like we arrived about 5 o clock after shopping some dinner on the way. I was having a nap on the veranda with the dog. she loved me. we stayed the night and in the morning it was about 40 degrees so we went to a little lake nearby we were in for an hour or sothen we went back to newcastle to find a new place to stay at. luckily, lachlan called and said we could stay at hiswe made a quick stop at Goldbergs to figure out some economy and to have three flat white on the way to charlestownat night we made vego sate with halloumi cheese and had it with milk and fairy lightswe finished the evening by taking Romeo to the break wall to show stina nobbys lighthouse and the milky way
now lets see where this homelessness (that is hopefully not evan a word) will take us next
