Perth/Midland – Beverly

The past days I stayed in Perth. At first I couchsurfed in some suburb with a couple of guys in a shared house. The time there was good. I did get my introduction to climbing there. I then moved to Donald’s place, in a suburb called Midland. I stocked up on food and drink for the ride to Adelaide, and on this fine morning I finally left the city behind.

I went due east on the Great Eastern Highway, then in York turned south towards Beverly. The ride was easy and the road pretty flat’ish. I’m a bit scared of the sun, though, and of the distance between here and Adelaide (almost 2800km).

Cycled: 120km

Johannesburg – Perth

The past days went by quickly. I stayed with Lance and Kerry, but this being a work week I spent most of my time on my own, either at their place relaxing or strolling around the neighbourhood.

I also managed to finish building the charging device for my bike. Let’s hope it works reliably.

No cycling these days.

Thankfully, Lance dropped me off at the airport again this morning. These two are really amazing hosts and friends.

I’m on my way to the next major destination, Australia.
