Went on a sunset wine tour of the Swan Valley last night. It was great! We visited 3 wineries, including cheese tasting at one of them and a full gourmet meal at another and finished up at a microbrewery (ya, didn't like that part since I hate beer). I've decided I really like Chenin Blanc. Quite fruity and sweet, but I'm a sucker for bad wine, I guess.

Meeting Jaap for dinner tonight. It'll be SO good to see him again!
Unfortunately, despite any plans we might have had for travelling together here in WA, it looks like it's not going to happen!

Jan and Mike, Natalie and I are picking up our rental car tomorrow morning and heading down the southwest coast. It's really quite cheap for us to get a rental ($70 each for the week, plus fuel). We might be gone for a week or 4 days, depending on how well we all get along.

This could very well be an issue.
Mike is a say-anything typical English guy taking a break from work (engineering). Shameful... but hilarious, especially when him and Jan get going. Jan and him met up on their trip around Uluru. An odd "couple", Jan (on break after high school) is probably the tallest Dutch guy I've ever met (and I know many tall Dutch guys) and the two of them are always taking the piss out of each other. Nat (a nurse from the UK) has been travelling around the world and arrived in Perth after her adventure in South Africa. As of right now we all get along really well, so it should be a good laugh. But just wait until we've all spent 7 day/wk, 24-hrs/day together...

If you don't hear from me, don't worry. I'm safe. As long as Mike hasn't crashed the car yet. Or killed Jan yet.
