Location: Innsbruck, Austria

From crusing through England, chilling in Berlin to crashing Microsoft parties, what more could you want???...How bout skiing the Alps!! So skiing we did, much to the bank balances dislike!!!

Two fine sunny days were spent atop the Austrian Alps with our new friend Chino, (real name Francis, nickname Franchino, short nickname, Chino) a Sydney dude who was able to show us the ropes.

Mountains were pristine and just how we had imagined, the powder snow and runs were endless!! Our benchmark has certainly been set for any slopes in the world!

Location: Munich, Germany

MICROSOFT CRASH STORY

We have the BEST story to tell! it happened in Munich and it will go down as one of the biggest nights ever!!!

And so the story begins...
The two of us were staying at this hostel in Munich, Germany in a dorm room with ten other people. The people in our dorm consisted of friendly and fun spirited dudes so we decided to meet up for a home made "beer hall crawl", and recruited people along the way!! Our group consisted of a Melbourne boy Chris, a canadian Jackie, us, a couple from America called Bree and Edgar, some random busker guy we picked up on the street whilst we were on our way to the first beer hall, another American girl called Meghan, and this half aussie half american guy called Bob.

Anyway, we bustled our way through the streets of munich and found ourselves in our first beer hall. Had the best dinner and all enjoyed beer steins. We then left feeling rather full with a litre of beer in us and got to our second destination.

As we got to the second beer hall, we lined up in what we thought was a line to get in as it was a busy night but proved to be something a little different!! In the rush of people, waitresses quickly took our coats and hustled us over to tables set for dinner while gallons of free piss on trays were shoved in our faces!!! The next moment we found ourselves in the most booziest, loudest function!!!!! Turns out it was a Microsoft party which was basically an excuse for a boozy night for their employees, there would've been about 500 people in the room! We continued to then enjoy a gormet three course meal, and as much beer, wine, shots ANYTHING you could think of...and it was all FREEEE!!!!! Hey, Bill can afford it!

We never moved to the next place for obvious reasons! By the end of the night we had all the Germans bowing down to us from the opposite sides of the room as we sang and danced on the table tops to an oompa loompa band. They even brought out a fat fog horn and there were 4 chicks walking around playing the saxamaphone! hahah! we never thought an oompa lumpa german band could be so hilarously fun!! Shit the germans can drink!!! So drink we certainly did!! Cheers Bill!!!

Location: Paris, France

Hi everyone!

we are currently in gay Paris and have seen all the usual sites including the Eiffel Tower (yes! we climbed the stairs!), the arc de triomphe, notre dame, sacrè coeur and the experience of window shopping at the rich Galleries La Fayette. they even had Dior childrens wear!!

crazy hand and arm signals have seen us through paris, including one today at the local markets where we were trying to ask what time they finished...the poor guy had no idea what the hell we were on about. so he screamed out really loud in french "can anyone speak english?" and a lady moved forward and said "oui!" so she translated our english and the guy looked at us strangely as if to say omg is THAT what you were asking!? hehe... we then felt obliged to buy something which ended up being our best dinner yet! traditional quiche and cremè caramel to finish...Bon Apetite!

paris is very behind the times...we keep seeing christmas decorations still up! lazy bums!

in conclusion, the french think they have the right to smoke ABSOLUTELY ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE! and their friggin dogs go everywhere! what the? we even had a dog in front of us (a hefty labrador too!) in the post office line which for all we knew could've been the bank! it was called banque poste!?

omg savage garden is playing in the room next door...if they want aussie music, just ask pete muz! JEBUS! ROOKIES!!!!!!

so back to our in conclusion, the french also are not as rude as first suspected! everyone we have asked has pretty much helped in some way, they are willing to help you! so many advertising posters have people in them giving you the ups! must not mean the same thing here! who knows???

having a ball,

orevior!!

Location: Lakes District, UK

hi everyone!!

omg u will never guess where we are!! we are staying in some friends of friends cottage in country lakelands in england. it is amazing, and so traditional and english!! the house is over 400 years old and is set in the middle of green rolling pastures! the house is apparently built from an old ship which landed here and was chopped up into houses! crazy!!

john and ruth, the owners are incredibly generous and nice to us and are so welcoming, even though they have never met us before!! just had homemade vege soup with homemade wholemeal bread which they made for us on our arrival...absolutely delicious!! there are hedges lining both sides of the street all the way along. john said in this town there is only a small pub, a post office and 2 churches (they are big on the churches here in england!!)

anyway, our recent news is that we visited chester which was another small english town but nothing much there, and then went to york, via liverpool, and YES we saw the cavern and the museum which were both fantastic!! everyone must must go to the museum it was so well set out and we learnt so much about the beatles!

liverpool itself wasnt nice at all- very industrial and dirty. when we were driving in to liverpool our windscreen got covered in crud and we couldnt see out!! and it smelt funny, se we got out fast. spent 2 hours in the museum but could've stayed way longer except our parking ran over time =S

left there and headed for york where we stayed last night. looked around the town today. york was very pretty, similar to bath, and people were very nice and helpful. they had a village festival on this weekend where the locals were given free entry into heaps of things so everyone was out ant about. it was a perfect day, with no clouds in the sky, but still nippy! the farmers markets were on all day so christ was very excited!

after that we came to the lakes district to meet this very kind family. and they generously let us use their computer!

HI GUYS!!!!!!!!!
I am so so so so so jealous of you two! you are having the bestest time ever! Sam called me last night and he gave me the address to check out all your awesome stories and photos! so so so funny! i love it! you guys rock getting into the microsoft party! nick and i thought we were doing well bluffing our way into the Indian Fashion Week in Mumbai as 'buyers', but that takes the cake! Love the Sound of Music! I have to go there one day! Well, Brissie is still Brissie but I'm having my 21st out at the 'Burra' this Easter and I CANT WAIT! I wish you guys could come! The only stress is it may be too wet as we had 10inches of rain in 12hours and that has never happened out at our place for as long as my dad can remember which is over 50 years! But if it doesn't rain again it will be the best season at 'Verastan' I will ever live to see!!!!!! yey! Take Care and keep me updated!
lots of love!

Hey CT! Sounds like you're surviving. I love the Bill Gates story. Random nights is your middle name. The funny thing is I can picture you doing all that stuff - randomly pulling together a string of people, knocking back 1L of beer, crashing parties .... that is CT just warming up. Can't wait to here the rest of the stories. Keep up the good work!
