We made it to Bundy!

Well Ben made it back from Fiji in one piece so I got my mate back lol. Now that he is back and I am done with work (work was slow the last week anyway) we have left Brisbane (after 6 great months there!) and hit the road to Bundaberg. I will really miss Brisbane but, we need to make it to Cairns so I can fly to New Zealand so we are making our way up there.

It rained and rained and rained in Brisbane recently, it rained so much that there was some serious flooding. They haven't had this much rain since 1974 and the dam was almost overflowing! The dam here in Brisbane was actually a tourist attraction because of the amount of water spilling over it! I was quite sick of this freaking rain and almost bought myself a boat haha. The rain was so bad and the waters so swollen that they actually canceled all boating service on the Brisbane River.

Now that we have left Brisbane the weather has been much better. We got a ride up to Bundaberg (and as far as Airlie Beach) with a really cool guy from Germany we met. So the 3 of us are gonna split petrol/food costs etc. We made it to Bundaberg in one piece and it has been great! Ben actually has a mate here in Bundaberg and he has been totally cool with us staying here and has opened his house to us and even fed us! He has an amazing place RIGHT on the beach overlooking the ocean and the views are amazing I will have to post some pictures soon for sure. So far our road trip has been great and no complaints :) Life is good! Well thats all I got for now. Yall take care.
