Radelaide is an interesting city its pretty much the same as Melbourne. We flew over for James Dodd's wedding which was tots awesome.

THE EAST COAST JOURNEY

I decided to venture up north to experience the beach life & to investigate alternative Australian history I ended up in Byron Bay in NSW & stayed with my good friend Luci, we hung out at the beach & I went swimming everyday & worked on my tan , the beach life is totally awesome . While up there I cut out some stencils & went on an adventure



I also went to Mike Chavez's for dinner & sprayed this on his van 


I also saw this cool Makatron piece

While in Byron Bay I went to crystal castle & encountered some ancient gods , they told me stories of the Bunyip the Australian version of Bigfoot which I plan to investigate when I,m up here next time 

This is a large crystal , I also did a Buddhist mediation here with singing bowls, the next day I woke up early at 5ish & cruised down to the beach with Luci to see the first Sun rise of the new year , I didnt see any UFO's but there were 3 sightings while I was in Byron 

After that I left Byron & ventured up to GOMA in Brissy to check out the Cai Guo-Qiang exhibition with Luci, which was totally awesome 


Then I ended up in Coolum hanging at my brothers place watching Star Trek Deep Space 9 & playing with my favorite nieces 

The adventure began when I cruised up to Gympie in search of the Gympie pyramid veries clues lay before us thanks to 'god the internet' ,we ended up at the Gympie museum & came across this artifact from the pyramid 


This is the Gympie ape , according to the story this Ape was found in the center of the pyramid & the Australian army also got called at the turn of last century because cows where cruising into the entrance of the pyramid & disappearing so the army ended up blocking off the entrance by bricking it up 


After all the excitement I went down to the local fish shop & scored a dozen oysters a good way to end the adventure, cya you's all later , watch out for aliens this year apparently earth is going to be invaded by aliens, Happy New Year everyone x
