Hello Followers

I am NOT coming home to clear up speculation. I was going to come back today but as i stood in the airport i thought that i just couldn't do it.

My change of heart has got me alot of pence so i have amended some of the dates i am traveling. I am heading down the coast in a couple of days then i will come back up to fly to Sydney on the 15th Dec.

Just gonna have a couple of quiet nights before i head down.

Peace out. x

Looks like the trip is over as i have just been to the doctors and they have sad that i should return to England due to an infection that will end up costing me loads if it persists. I have booked my flight home for tomorrow and arrive back on the 28th. What a load of shit! x

Hello Campers,

I went to Australia Zoo today, it was quality. Handled a croc and got shown on the big screen in the show arena as one of the workers caught me out with a fake animal. She tempted me in to see the animal and as i did her hand puppet lept out and obviously a shat myself, it was funny to see after.

Had some bad news with regards to Byron Bay as i just received an email from the hostel that they messed up my booking and it has been double booked with a group of people. I am now going to look at flying down to Sydney and then go up from there. Hopefully the travel agents can get me on a flight over the next few days.

A few of my mates have moved on to other cities now for work so i am alone again. boo hoo.

Not sure what i am doing tomorrow. Probably just relax all day.

Bye for now. xx

Hello readers,

It was good to see all those messages on my page today, they really meant alot to me as it is quite strange not having friends and family around.

Unfortunately i missed the zoo today due to me being lazy and not getting up on time. i think i will scrap watching the football in the morning and get my ass in gear to go to the zoo. I must be crazy to want to habdle a croc and snakes rather than sit in the pub at six in the morning.

Been trying to plan a couple more things to do outside Brisbane as it is quite expensive (mum). I am going to book my ticket to Byron tomorrow as it looks amazing and some of the beaches are meant to be some of the best in oz. I may only stay there for two weeks or so and then head down to sydney for the festive period as there is more i would like to see in New South Wales.

I will leave it there as i have to prepare myself for a beach party tonight. Think of me when you are at work in that cold weather as i will be probably suffering and probably barfing.

Love you all,

Its another hot day here in Queensland.

I have today booked up my tickets to Byron Bay but have not booked any accommodation which is always good. Met some really cool people and tonight i am taking part in "mini olympics" which should be a good laugh.

On wednesday i am heading to Australia Zoo (Steve Irwin's Zoo). I will take loads of photos to upload, hopefully i will still have all my limbs left at the end of the day. Quite looking forward to handling a croc (Baby of course) which should be eventful. Had a proper look around Brisbane centre today which brought some memories of the last time i was here.

Well time to say goodbye as i am off to the castlemaine xxxx factory which is just two minutes walk to and 2 hour stagger back from.

Take care.

Location: Brisbane, Australia

Hello People,

It is 10.30am here in sunny Brisbane. Obviously not much has happened so far, but thought i would let you know that i have got here okay.

Couldn't find the hostel i originally booked so i have checked in to another which seems pretty cool. (Bit to much sausage around though!)

I will keep you posted.

Hope you get things sorted and find somewhere else to stay. Glad you had a good time at the zoo. I expect you will soon find some new friends when you get to wherever you go next.
Just do what you want and don't worry about things. Talking of 'things' have you got them sorted.
Be happy,
Love Mum xxx
Response: I haven't been able to get "things" sorted yet as the medical centres are always totally booked. I have booked to stay here for a few more days and check out tuesday morning. I will send you a message later. x

Hey Gay,

Remember it's all about smashing-in international pie.

In Byron Bay go to a place called Cheeky's (I think that's what it's called - I was really drunk) it's quality.

P.S. Your mum.
Response: Stru you f--king cock sucking c--t licker. I am heading down to Byron on friday. I will keep an eye out for it. Been trying to tap into some kiwi bird in Brisbane.

Good to here you're having a good time. Rovers finally won at home beating Millwall 2-1 last minute winner!! Don't get bitten at the zoo!!
Response: Can't believe rovers won, at last. I am still so jet lagged at the moment that i seem to be sleeping more than i am awake. I am gonna try and get up for the England game tomorrow morning but that will be very early for me. What going on with the house? Has it been raining there hard as i seen that the rovers v orient game was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. I didn't go to the zoo in the end today as i got up to late. i might go tomorrow it depends if i can after the football.

Take care

From mum
Nice to speak to you today. Hope you catch up on your sleep and remember to keep valuables with you. It is still raining here. Gave Dylan a small bath with some shampoo I bought at the pet shop. Don't know is it will work. Popped over to Teresas this afternoon for an hour. Rachael was busy wrapping Christmas presents. Told her she could wrap mine if she wanted. Sue bought me an oil burner from Egypt with some expensive oil to burn.
Think thats all for now.
Have a lovely day,
Love Mum xxx
Response: Hello,

It was very hot again here today, i took a walk around Brisbane city centre and went to the botanic gardens which was really nice.
The jetlag has really caught up with me today so i have been sleeping quite alot. There are some cool people here and am having a good time.
I will find out my mates address in Sydney now and let you know.

Love Neil .xxx
