Unfortellable Epicness : 2011

I left South Africa with only one plan - to head towards Spain... 
But as 2010 passed away 2011 brought with it more epicness than I could possibly imagine....

The year Began in Perth with fireworks and street partying and quality people....


Sadly Perth had to many Speedos on offer so I moved on...


I found a job in Tincurrin (Population 7.5) where I spent 6 weeks planting nearly 200 000 trees - I no longer need to worry about my carbon footprint...


With a ticket for Big Day out in Adelaide (4000 km away) I needed to get a move on and head East - sort of towards Spain....


Sadly there were no busses and the train was full so I was forced into a life of hitch hiking which accidentally became addictive...


 I made it to Adelaide alive and decided to keep moving....


So I crossed the great ocean road and Melbourne and everything inbetween ....


I made it to Sydney - but after licking the opera house there wasn't much else to do so I hitched on out...


And found other things to lick....



I accidentally landed a job that I loved as an outdoor instructor with a bunch of brilliant people (who would have thought that possible in Australia??) and ended up staying there for far too long...


I was there for so long I even began brewing my own beer...


I adopted a Kiwi who talked me into going to New Zealand...


Bored of all the sheep I gave sky diving a try...


I survived that so I tried snow boarding...


Back in Australia, I inherited Karla, the campervan of awesomeness and set about exploring the East coast...


And with all this fun to be had I decided that I'd probably want to come back to this side of the world someday so I did the last of my 88 days of rural farm work required for a second visa by farming chickens...


 With my first visa coming to an end I began to look for a boat...
 

But leaving it so last minute I failed and ended up flying to Bali with two gigantic stuffed toys in hand...


I successfully crossed to Java where I did find a boat and landed in Singapore just in time for new years...

And just like that 2011 was gone... It's gonna take a lot to beat such an epic year... 

With so many excellent people and brilliant experiences and so few boughts of food poisoning, it's going to take a lot to beat the year just gone.

It's now 2012 and currently I'm sat here in a beautiful haven on Sentosa island (Singapore), watching the moon flicker across the water, listening to distant boats and a ticking fan; but tomorrow I return to the world of dirt and disorder and squat toilets and the unknown as I venture off to somewhere in Malaysia. Tomorrow I'll be a gypsy again!
