Hi Friends,

I found Nemo!!!! Well, maybe. While scuba diving, I saw 3 clownfish, hiding inside an anemone, just like in the movie. Unfortunately, I had already took my last shot from my disposable camera before getting a pic. Story of my life! LOL! But as you can tell from my pics, they weren't the greatest. Note to self: buy nicer underwater camera when diving in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). The fish, coral, and creatures in the GBR were full of color and amazing. It was the most incredible diving experience! Since I failed my mission in taking a photo of "Nemo", I had to roll into the drive-thru liquor store to drown in my sorrow. LOL! The Aussies love their alcohol! Forget the drive-thru Starbucks, the Aussies have us beat....genius. Let's hope there's no drinking and driving involved. Anyways, I will seek to get a better picture of Nemo again....stay tuned.

G'day mates! I'm staying in Brisbane now, near Chinatown. The city is similar to San Francisco, very hilly. Little did I know, there was a huge free concert, the Valley Festival, on the weekend of. The place was overwhelmed with party animals and booze was flowing. The Aussies and beer, a crazy combination! To get out of the party scene, I went up to Noosa beach which is a quaint little town with shops and restaurants. The South Bank area is a new trendy district with a great paths to stroll. I finally got my first flat tire! In the morning, a friend and I ventured to get my tires pumped at the gas station, but none to be found. So, we asked some policeman and they said "We'll take you Mate!" So we hopped in their police car, they pumped my tires, and they even dropped us off the train station. They take "To serve and protect the people" to another level! On our way back from Stradbroke Island, a great beach getaway that stretches to infinity, we had a whole bus to ourselves that drove us back, like our own private chauffeur. My next stop is Surfer's Paradise!

I will have to upload photos of Brisbane later

Cheers,
