Yeah! Tell me about it. Some days I spent 150-180 Euros on fuel alone!

Sometimes Life really takes a turn!

Update:

I've finished my big hikes across Tasmania, and as much as I love Australia, I've skipped the pond and am heading for Latin America!

I'm now home for Christmas in Seattle, hanging out with the family. In some sudden turns of events, I've decided to fly to Santiago, Chile, where I'll be buying a tiny motorcycle (125-250cc) to ride around Latin America until I'm ready to go home.

This is the end of the Outback Sherpa adventures, BUT THE FUN DOESN'T END HERE!!

Tasmania was my absolute favorite part of Australia! I'd love to live there someday. Had things worked out with my man, I'd definitely have stayed. What a place!

Well said. I've met SO MANY moto riders, guys mostly, traveling on motorcycles because of life's curve balls. You don't see motorcycles parked in front of the psychologist office for a good reason.

Was looking forward to your arrival up here (Darwin), was hoping to get the Tasmania download over a few drinks..
Assuming you're not going into Asia and beyond now also?

Merry Christmas

Good luck to you Elisa, I hope you have a great time riding South and Central America. I reckon a small bore bike would be ideal there. Best wishes, Marty.
