Decisions have been made

 Decisions have been made. I've been working, saving and paying down bills so as I can start a new traveling phase of my life. After being diagnosed with 4 or 5 years ago with Ulcerative colitis it has changed the way I  think about what to do with the time I have left before I get to kick the bucket.

So in order to maintain some kind of a healthy lifestyle and have as much fun as possible I've decided to spend as much time as I can walking/hiking around parts of Australia, NZ and if possible the Ireland and the UK, money and time permitting.

So why the bike. Simple, I need to get from A to B as cheaply as possible and with as much fun as possible.

First place to go is in November when I go with my Sister to Mt Kosciusko, the top of Australia, with lots of stopping, riding and walking on the way down and on the way back.  

Veggie gardening might be a bit light on but I also have plans to try some Wwoofing and I'm hopeful I can bring reports from organic farms from all over the place.

That's it for now, it's been raining here for the last 10 days and today it's fine so I'd better get out and mow the lawn.
