It is really hard to be diligent about updating when there is not a lot new going on. Let me see if i can dig some stuff up...

I heard on the radio yesterday that it was 6 weeks until Christmas. What??? Instead of thinking about presents, snow, family dinners, and decorations I immediately thought about the lack of time we have in Port Douglas. Our lease is up December 22nd which means we are in the process of making plans for Christmas. We are thinking a hotel for a night or two which would make it a little less depressing than being in the van. I cannot believe our time here is going to end so quickly. That is only 6 more weeks of work, 6 more weeks of American football at Marty's and 6 more weeks until we are on the road again. I am very excited to get back in the tourist mode! I want to see, see, see!

Brett and I are both working about 4 days a week however his shifts are basically all days while my shifts are all nights. Opps. That is what happens in the sailing and restaurant biz. Oh well, we will have every single stinking moment together once we are on the road. Plus, we will take money anyway we can get it! I worked last night in the pizza kitchen. My usual job is to answer the phone, take orders, cut pizza, take pizzas out to the restaurant and put the garlic bread into the oven. Haha, that's what I thought. As of last night, I have officially worked in all areas of the restaurant except kitchen. I was delivery girl!!!!!
This little car was so much fun to zip around in and I finally got to drive a stick shift on the left side of the road! Hahahaha, it was hilarious!

Brett and I are busy organizing our travel plans. Our rough idea of to see a ton more of Australia, head to NZ for a couple weeks and than head to Asia for a month or so. We want to go to Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Hong Kong! However, we are unsure of the travel months so far but we are still scoping out places to stay and means of travel! If anyone has any recommendations or places to go or see please let us know!

It rained here all day Thursday, which was actually kind of nice. The wet season is slowly approaching and I think we are going to be happy that we are heading south. We are excited to see some new things!

Thanks for reading, whoever you are! We miss you and love you. Happy (early) Thanksgiving!

Love, BK
