and then…

February 3rd, 2009

Since November I have been, and continue to be, happily employed at a scientific institute in Auckland, New Zealand as one of their software developers. It’s a world away from the daily marathons I walked across Japan, struggling to understand and be understood. No more fascinating local customs or idiosyncrasies pick up on (though our team does cover a nicely varied background), no more hunting around for a place to sleep or comparing foods by their calories to Yen ratio. But I just heard about an oppourtunity I couldn’t let pass me by. Queensland Tourism is looking for an island caretake (read: promotional agent/blogwriter etc) to live on Hamilton Island for six months. Applications are done by way of videos and this is mine. I’d appreciate you taking the time to watch it and vote. It’s only 1min long and it’d really change my life in a crazy and most welcome way.

Distance today: 0 miles. Total distance: 2663.5 miles

    Great journal of your trip. I’m leaving for a thru-hike next month. I like the links to Google Maps per journal entry. Is that a plugin that you use, if so which one, or are you just embedding the link when you make the journal entry?

    Hi, I have few question regarding organizing PCT trip, and I think you are right person to answer:) I’ve tried to find your email on your page and I’ve failed. Can you send me your email? Mine email is in comment header.

    My friend sent me a link to your site. We’re leaving for the PCT in five days. You’re an excellent writer and I loved reading about your adventures. I don’t think I’ll be able to keep up while on the trail but I hope that more of your adventures will be waiting for me in my feed reader when I get back.

    Good luck with the island job. I’d hire you!
