Well my mom has made it here safe and sound and we have been at Conrad and Carols for the last couple days. It has been extremely hot 38C. We have been busy harvesting garlic and visiting with Peter and the rest of the family. Everything is going great and I will hopefully get on here and write a longer account when we get to Cairns.

no computer for awhile

Well I have decided that I can't hull my computer around with me for the next two weeks, so I'm giving it up tomorrow and leaving it at a friends place. I'm going to feel naked without it, it has really been my lifeline to everything. Schedules for trains, buses, phoning, travel info, homework and anything and everything else. So I won't be writing on here for a while. I should get the opportunity to do so at either Conrads or the hostel along the way. No guarantees. I have almost everything packed, I don't know how I'm going to fit the rest in my bag but that's okay. I've had to give alot of stuff away, at least to people who will use it. Anyways that's it for a bit.

travel expo

Well classes are finally finished. Hooray!!! I'm just putting some final touches on my last essay and I have one exam. I'm glad I only have a few things left because my roommates and I are not seeing eye to eye and I have to move out the day my mom gets here or pay rent for two more weeks. So out I go. Luckily I have met some really nice people and I can store my excess luggage at their place until I leave to NewZealand. Today I took a break and went down to the travel expo and then down to Bondi Beach. It was nice to get out and go down to the water and find more information on Cairns and NewZealand. I'm getting very excited, my mom leaves to Calgary tomorrow morning and flies out. She will be here in 4 days.... doesn't seem real. Anyways here are a couple pictures of the travel expo.

didn't get there

Well the weather did not want to cooperate with me this weekend. The majority of the weekend was cloudy and rainy. So I did some shopping at the markets and some homework. Then I spent all Sunday morning loading programs back on my computer because it decided to crash over night and all my information was gone. Was not a happy camper. It is the second time that it has happened to me. Needless to say I spent the rest of the day and still continuing to do assignments that were erased and starting new ones that are due. I haven't checked to see if I still have my pictures on my camera or not... I'm too scared to look. Next weekend will have to be my weekend to go to the mountains and to the beach. My classes end on Friday and I only have one exam, so I can sit on the beach and study and study on the train to the mountains. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
