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.

--> Pemberton, South-West, Australia (2nd day)

Minke James invited me not only for one day, but for a few days. And I thought, why bother about it. I can use the rest of staying on one place and also get my act together of previous reports that I still had to write.
In the afternoon Minke took me along with the kids to the neighbouring lady Helena. Helena is the mother of the young Max and also a school teacher.

We decided to bake gingerbread today and thus I got a full course on how to make those biscuits with the sugar icing. It was a fun day, however the kids ask a lot of attention.

In the afternoon I had a nap, just like little Josiene and Jasper, before I got fed by Minke during dinner.

In the evening I was this computer guy again, who got himself settled on the kitchen table with loads of stuff to do next to writing reports and uploading photos.

I think Minke was a bit overwhelmed when I told her what it all was that keeps me busy.

A few days in peaceful Pemberton also should give my mind a bit of a rest. I just enjoyed the sound of the animals in de garden and the next-door rooster that was still trying to rape the chickens every five minutes.

Good night Pemby!
