Wtf is Wollongong?

I have a tentative plan! It is tentative because I realize when traveling things can change on a whim, you meet someone who says 'hey lets go here and do this' and then you're gone. But nevertheless, my plan is as such.

I am going to head to Wollongong. It is a town about and hour's drive south of Sydney. This is where I plan to go shortly after arriving and get set up there with a place to stay and a job.

Why Wollongong?

I chose it because it met the following criteria.

1. A university town
2. Neer da beach
3. Cheaper living

I am afraid that it might be too expensive to stay in Sydney when I first get there so I looked around and found Wollongong. It has a freaking mountain in the town, for serious. Check out this view of Mt. Keira from the town.

Basically: Guelph + Beaches + Surfing + Mountain + Summertime = Awesome Win

So that's my plan for now. Once I get there, chill in Sydney for a few nights and orient myself. Then take the train to Wollongong and set up shop there for a few months. After that... who knows...

I do. It's called going to Carins and scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef. Or to the Northwest provinces and working on a ranch. I shall make a mighty to do list for while I am there.

Anyways, peace for now.

Wow, that's sexy. I'm quite jealous of you. You are leaving soon... too soon in fact. I was hoping for one last meades - Robots hook up before you leave. But sadly that doesn't look possible. Looks like I'll just have to be see you in my dreams... every night. That's sweet though. I don't blog though. But ya, if you regularly add stuff to this site, i just might have to start. Cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool.
