During my travels, my compensation for free accommodation for one night, was for me to write a daily travel diary. Of how I got to my next location, the people who would host me, the food I was offered and everything else. Below you find the archives of the highly extensive reports. Know that English is not my native language and most reports were written at high speed around midnight. Enjoy.

--> Magnetic Island, Australia

After a good night sleep in my own 'flat' down in the concrete Queenslander villa in Arthur Bay on Magnetic Island I had a lazy day on the beach (getting sun tan!) and at the end of the afternoon I went for a walk to the Forts. Enjoy those photos!
In the evening, Norm and Val had returned back to the island as they work at their own engineering company in Townsville. Their other daughter Kelly was staying here for the last night, as she and her little daughter Kylie were going to move to Canada (!) tomorrow. Tonight was their last dinner on the island...

Having a good time on the island! Off to the beach again!
