Be Australian
This guy came from Australia with to ride across the U.S., he thought by motorcycle (due to some miscommunication) in 1976. When informed that it was a bicycle trip, he adjusted and went ahead with it! A powerful rider on simple equipment…To this day anytime I’m struggling on a bike ride, I think of him and berate myself with the words “be Australian!”. I recall he had a soup can with a wire handle for making tea at campsite.

[I have corrected this comment as I have learned a bit more about his story in Sept 2015. What I learned, about his mistakenly thinking he had signed up for a motorcycle trip and going anyway, only improves the story!]

So I saw a lot of posts here warning about going to the Club Tortimer Island wearing a crown…

… So I decided to buy a crown and see what the big deal was…

I was legitimately surprised at how horrible it was. Granted it was hilarious, but still.

These aren’t even all of the screen shots I could have gotten. I was doing this for hours. I was trapped by tours, sworn at, told I was horrible, got sob stories, had one girl admit to trying to steal my crown and like, sat herself in time-out. (See 2nd to last photo LOL)

I even had a 10 year old girl threaten suicide if I didn’t give her bells or my crown…

Yeah. O_o

Anywho, after hours of this I finally met the only person who didn’t harass me. Mayor Megumi. (Last Photo)

Of course, I had to play around for a while to make sure since some others waited a bit before harassing me, so I helped her catch snazzy bugs and waited…

…Then I explained the experiment and went to the atm and took out a million bells for her… she was so cute, even when i started dropping the bells she didn’t try to take them or anything. She kept asking if it was okay.≧﹏≦ and she also happens to have a tumblr as well so go follow her» sailormegs

Moral of the story: Don’t be an idiot on the island and maybe someone will give you bells..(⊙o⊙)?

Burgundy 2013
The warm faded pinks and rusts of a closed down Boulangerie brought a touch of colour to a cool grey day.

A wet day in Tunnel Gully Sep 2016
Just a short one of 40km in the sometimes heavy rain today. It was too wet to use my cellphone camera in the rain, so I very cleverly stood inside the tunnel, in the dry to take this photo.
