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.

Kewarra Beach --> Edge Hills, Cairns, Australia

I moved from Kewarra Beach back to the Cairns suburb Edge Hill again, where Anne Falconer had invited me for another stay - as today was her birthday!

I was taken along with her and her partner Jean-Pierre and we had dinner at The Reef Hotel Casino in Cairns (where I also got a few dollars to play around with - of course the one with nothing ends up with nothing) and ended up dancing salsa at the Latin-American tapas and wine bar "Casa de Meze" on the Esplanade.

After this day I stayed another two nights, as I had to work on the repair of my hard-drive for my laptop (tech stuff, bleh) and catch up on some previous reports.

And I had to prepare my next long-distance trip for the coming week: Ramon goes Outback!
