it's been 12 months....

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn´t do than
by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

by Mark Twain

Today over a year ago, I boarded the plane heading to Australia via Tokyo, Japan. Now 365 days later I am still sitting in Melbourne, my homebase since the last 6 months.... I truly became to love this buzzling city over the time. It' s amazing. It' s been thrilling. It' s been crazy. It's been awesome.

12 months down under that has been 55.778 km throughout Australia (incl. the journey down under), visiting every state, spent some longer time in Perth, Adelaide, Ayr, Noosa, Byron Bay, Sydney and the most days in Melbourne.

Met heaps of amazing people from all over the world, travelled on with a few and met up again with a lot after a few months, enjoyed awesome scenery, stunning beaches, visited world heritages, had heaps of fun, endured 7 weeks of fruit picking, crazy Aussie wildlife, city days and big nite out, lots of great parties and not so grand hung over days, heaps of fun, hidden secrets and hideaways, hostel stories, .... and lots more.

Cheers for the memories and hey, 12 more months to go. whoop whoop.
Stay on for the ride.
