Our first full day in Geraldton involved me working until 5pm before settling down to a malaysian curry back at our hostel ($9).
We got chatting to two guys on the opposing balcony to ours about what we were planning for our travels. One of them, Matt gave us some really handy hints and tips and even gave us a map of North West australia with loads of scribbles on where to go and whats worth seeing.
We've heard on the radio and read in the papers that a few cyclones are blowing in up north so we will be checking out the road reports and weather reports before setting off anywhere further although the plan is to try to reach Shark Bay/Monkey Mia/Denham area in the next few days.
We've also just gone and bought some more pieces for the car including a jerry can for additional fuel, and a 20 litre water container and we'll be picking up some blankets too. The last thing we ant is to break down in the outback but at least we'll have a few items to help us through if worst case scenario happens.
Ho hum! Such is the travellers life!
