i don't want to sound like a little girl, or like a poor boy that consider everything going around him self (like i usually do...), but i feel like this storm is chasing us;
we had rain everywhere, including the sunshine coast...! and its summer now. (and i don't want to hear all these talking about tropical weather..monsoons... - summer need to be sunny and clear!).
so, what i had so far(probably not all and not in the right timeline): ...
after the sailing we went north to cairns. saw the Australia movie, dived two times in the great barrier reef. woke up in the flood to our knees, and wanted to go north, but we just couldn't, so we tried south, but it was flooded too. so, after another night in cairns, and another on the highway, we managed some how to escape out from the storm. or at least we thought that we did..
so many strange animals lives here, beside those that we all know, so i wouldn't tell here about each one.
so we continued our way to the big city Brisbane, stopping here and there.
about all the adventures that going on here i will tell later, when i will have more time and upload the relevant photos...
for now, you can see some here:
soon i will be volunteering in a farm that i need to find, for the next three weeks until my flight to NZ.
so keep on touch, because most of you aren't showing much action in this blog, and don't tell me its boring... - you can make it not!!!
new ideas will be happily accepted
that all for now
i wish i could give you some of the rain that falling here... that not fair...

hello my dear friends...
the title of this letter is my main thing here, while you are driving, and believe me, it isn't as simple as it seems...
I got this moto thanks to uncle Phill (just an Aussie old man that we met in one of the hostel)
a lot of beer was drank since the last time I wrote here, so I'll try to do my best.
we are now three Israelis on our wicked van, since we met Udi in the koala's hospital in 'Port sheker kolshehu', and he joined us for the rest of our trip in the van.
I'll try not to use names of places that would say nothing for you,that you'll wonder if I'm still in Australia(that usually happens with letters from hutzla'aretz)
we are just heading north, hitting the gas paddle, while stopping in the best points, for a day or two, or even just for a '4/5$ domino's large pizza'(which is about 13 shekels!!! it's hard not to..)
We had three days in Byron bay, which brings many tourist to its wonderful beaches (and we got a ticket for camping on the street..).
then we went to Nimbin which is a very small Hippies town, and there I realized that hippie means someone that smokes drugs all his life!..and not just a happy and peaceful person..oh, one the way there we had rain that wouldn't be smaller than the Mabul Noah had with the Teiva!
Tweed Heads is a nice city that divided between the two 'states' New South Wales and Queensland, and the important thing is that on is using summer-clock, and the other not, so there is one street with two times zones!!
another two days in Noosa, that we built up Hakot for ourselves, and were fishing us a great dinner.
Fraser island is the biggest sand island in the world.
only with 4X4. we went for three days with four south koreanim, one Irish couple and us - three Israelis. (and that for its self was interesting...) it was great adventure for its difficult driving paths, hot plain sand, 80km/h high-way on the beach sand(only when its low-tide(?)(=shefel), sharks, rays, turtles, dingos, freeze bee, 'burgers in the storm' dinner - big times!
on our way north, we stopped in a city that famous by its Rum distillery - a smell that I just can't forget (maybe only when I eat my Domino's...)
I'm writing to you from Airlie Beach, after two days of sailing in the Whitsundays Islands! group of 74 amazing islands, with white sand, nice corals and colorful fishes!just relaxing on the yacht catching some tan (or rain...) snorkeling and beering(=a new word that i just made up (i think) for drinking beer).
that pretty much all for now..
we are continuing heading north till Cairns and some more.
hope the monsoons wouldn't make too much troubles..
i stil didn't decided what to do with my hairy stuff around my hear, so if you got any opinion - tell me
-shave it all /
-let it grow /
-only beard /
-only hair /
-only safam /
-all of the above...
last album that I've put:
I'll put some more soon(bli neder..)
sorry for not replying for most of you
love you all
