Destination Dreams

They may speak english but their southern draw is contagious. Playing tour guide this week to the Aussies has helped remind me to appreciate my surroundings. It's always refreshing to see your home through another person's eyes.



Now the Aussies have a saying, well actually they have a lot of sayings but " we ain't lick'n stamps here" pretty much sums it up. They have all graduated from the school of Paul Rowney and they always make sure the ladies remember their accents.



In mountain biker terms, living the dream pretty much boils down to traveling in an RV for the summer and ripping endless singletrack with your mates. Some call all it procrastinating the real world.... we call it living the dream.
