in Singapore...

February 22 2015

From Germany's winter to Singapore's humidity. 
 At least there's no tremors of cyclones unlike home. For now. 
What's the bet everything will be quiet when I finally get home? 
I've been missing all the fun!

snow in Nuremberg...

January 20 2015

The happiness. It's snowing! Woo hoo!

I finally got my xmas present that I used to get as a customer, ginger cookies. They're brilliant. 
Good enough reason by itself to visit.

and the bike journey moves on...

Nathan Bartley comments - looking pretty damn happy...
Triumph Sprint GT

Wednesday 30.7.14 - I bought it.I've taken it for a spin down Pacific Drive. I need a grinectomy. Pig of a thing trying to reverse into a gravel parking spot when only the balls of my feet touching the ground. Otherwise...just wow.
I sure as hell hope I never drop it. I've been riding all afternoon, what a beautiful machine.

And this is where he has been...2013 Suzuki...

Time for Nuremberg...

In the next stage of Scott's exciting journey, he is connecting with a German company ... Keynote SIGOS ...

11.2.14 The interesting bit is I would be looking after Telstra as well, so visits to Melbourne will be semi regular. 

For now, he is in Nuremberg, till the end of March, learning the ropes, and then back to Australia...

7.3.14 Did I mention the good bit is the office has a very nice coffee machine?

Great Ocean Road Adventure

This is a view of the water bomber passing over my home to attend a nearby fire at McCrae, esp Heronswood on my Mornington Peninsula.
It reminded me that there were other fires raging in Victoria.
I was particularly concerned about fires in the Grampians just north of The Great Ocean Road,
the road that Scott would be travelling on the weekend.
Fortunately, the Grampian fires were controlled, but Scott found other problems on the mighty road.

January 20 - Who has been along the Great Ocean Road? Was it during terrorist, I mean tourist season? 
Holy crap what a collection of awful, incompetent, slow, hat and tissue box on the back parcel shelf, 
wandering all over the road wastes of space. 
 Pretty place though.
 To de-stress I went and bought a new helmet.
All is right with the world again.

Yes. I was warned by 3 different people to watch out for tourists driving on the wrong side of the road. 
Even better, driving a motorhome they're still learning to handle. 
 I even met 2 other riders on the way there, and they wanted to go but had heard too much about how dangerous it is because of the tourists. 
 I should invent an automatic head smacker for all hire vehicles when it detects you're trying to kill someone.

Scott visited the Edge of the World in north west Tasmnaia before hitting the Great Ocean Road...
