Montpelier, where there is no McDonalds
An adventure to the summit of a
milkshake made of mushroom
A day spent wandering the shady streets of 
The aftermath of the Toronto ice storm

Amsterdam thoughtforms
A diary I’ve kept of my
busking endeavours
An eye-opening couple of weeks in
Ecuador & Chile
Making a new friend over pizza in Rome
Some cheeky cockatoos hanging out in Sydney gardens
A number of 
dates that have gone a bit wrong
A humongous
filing cabinet
Seventeen days spent in Egypt (the happiest 2 weeks of my life)
Polish translation of one of my songs
A piece of the
Devil in everything you buy
A vote to 
Rodriguez for Prime Minister

journey through years of abuse
A likely encounter with a ghost at Toowong Cemetery


I hope you enjoy your time here.
