Alright folks?

Its been a hell of a long time since i checked in. Im in Melbourne now, having a great time.

India was amazing.
Singapore was a change.
Thailand was frickin' hot.
Laos was stunning and...
Vietnam was all of the above.

Australia's been brilliant so far but im only in the working-so-that-i-can-travel-for-a-bit-at-the-end-of-my-year-here stage, iis wee bit cold at the minute too, a bit like an Irish summer. I met Clara aka 'Lil Liz' a couple of weeks back and we had a great time together. Lovely girl.

Anyway, stay happy people.

Hi Joe!

Glad to hear things are workign out so nicely for you. Enjoy Australia - I expect the weather will begin to pick up soon. I'll be in Ireland at the end of October - so I have much less hope for the weather there!

Keep in touch when you can.

Hi Joe,

Any pangs of homesickness yet?

Good to hear your trip is going so well.

Good to see some familiar names still hanging around.

Hope you are all well.

Not really homesick ever. I could do with some clonakilty black pudding, potato bread and a pint of decent Guinness but thats it.

Id love to blink and pop home for a weekend to go drinking and fishing on Achill Island with my pals too. Thatd be excellent.

Wilsons promontory will have to do though, im heading off camping there for the weekend after work this evening. Should be a laugh...i'm heading with a German, a French fella and a Korean lad, they form one half of my multicultural housemates.

Good folks, strong drinkers.
