Twist became the white monkey and lives a wild and free pirate's life!
So I broke my camera..
That's like the worst thing that could've happened to me. I'm stuck in this little sh*thole in the middle of b*mf*ck nowhere and can't get myself a new setup. After all I might be moving soon enough again not to be without gear for too long but it still stresses me out. Sorry guys, no new updates for that time.

I will also lose the internet after today so I got no idea what to do about that. This little visitors center and museum was my only possibility to get online access as long as I'm here. It's going to shut down for the winter season as well, so I might have to check for other opportunities.

So hope to be back not too late, have a good time as long as I'm diving down into the remote wilderness of Tiverton *sigh*

Now when the sun come up I'll be there to say what up
In the morning brush my teeth Find that clip I been lookin
For since last night I feel so caught up in a bud
I flow some round in my bedroom turn around see myself in the mirror
I guess I'm cool and those happy thoughts in my head I'm feeling like I'm Peter Pan minus the tights and the fairies happy to see how far I've come to the same place it began my dreams and imagination perfectly at peace so I move along a bit higher

I'll be up up and away Up up and away
Cause they gon' judge me anyway so whatever
I'll be up up and away Up up and away
Cause in the end they'll judge me any so whatever

Hi guys,
hope everybody survived the crash into 2013? Well, I did and even if I don't give a **** about new years eve I still like new beginnings and the feeling of a change. After all it's mainly brainwashing because if anything can change then you have to take care about it by yourself and don't let some mighty number let all the work do. But sure, you know all that and I don't wanna talk about that. I wanna talk about what's going to happen around here.

Well, my stunning girlfriend and I are still heads up high for getting us moved to Canada during the next 6 months and get us some nie work 'n travelling over there Chances are good we get a good start and after all it's what you make out of it. So exicited to start on that big project really soon - What means after all a lot more photography during travelling like I did in Australia. As far as I can tell these were some highly frequented pictures and were faved quite often, so I guess I should keep that up ^^

Other than that I finally got my whole airbrush setting so much set up by now, that I'm able to get some nice work done. The first tries have been a bit rough and didn't work out that good as I hoped but it's a start, so you'll propably ee some more of that working area. Plus I wanna start up a little homepage with some kinda serious business profile what might be handy in future terms. But god knows what means serious in my mind, so don't expect me to wear a suit on my profile. Together with all this growing comes some more drawing and I hope not to loose base to my favourite kind of art expression. It's hard to keep up with all this stuff - Finally I would like to load some videos up on youtube to support self teaching processes like I used myself in the last couple of weeks. I reckon it's so handy to see other people and how they solve their projects. Even if my footage might be mainly about how NOT to do it in the beginning it might still be helpful for some guys. So who's into that might find me again just next door doing something slightly different.

Yea well, I reckon that's it so far, thanks for still watching to everybody who does. I hope everyone of you has a great time in the next 356 days and find's a way to reach some goals, however they might look like.
Keep up the good work!

After more than 15 months of being away we finally made it back to Osnabrück. I already feel so alien in my old hometown and I don't know what's coming next. I reckon we might find a little cave for the winter and dig ourselves in pillows for the long nights.
I really miss Australia a lot but even more I miss to live on the run. It feels kinda stuck to look already for a place to stay and get all the bloody paperwork done. We will see how to get over it and whereto go next..

Fuck me dead!
Manila is damn big and it's so confusing. Here ist everything a bit strange... For example, what I really love most, Marlboro comes in softpacks!! How good is that?! Other than this, there are just any random crossway something like a traffic light but most driver don't give a shit anyway. Same about the security - These guys watch every little shop, that is build out of more than a few logs. But they don't do anything! Usually I would have a close eye on me, when I enter one of these shops. But they barely even have a second look. Feels a bit strange not to be suspicious to these people.
Yea, what else? Takes me about half the day to get down the street where my hostel is. I just wanted a beer and a payphone to ring my mates back in Australia and it took me a whole day just to get around and find some orientation. And I didn't even leave the avenue! Plus, I'm not in central Manila. Just hanging around in one of the massive suburbs, that form the whole sprawl of Manila. Takes a while to get used to all this stuff. I'm still scared everytime one of these motorbikes overtakes me, which are loaded with up to six people sometimes, additional to their load of a big package of newspapers, gas bottles, fruits and veggies or whatever needs to be delivered. These guys are crazy!!

Anyway. I made it so far to figure out some nice bars to hang around and when it's getting too hot I just crawl back into my cell and lay naked in the aircon, drink Bacardi and Sprite, smoke a lot and watch movies, cartoons and listen to music. Can't be bothered to go any further ^^
  • Listening to: Kerry singing..
Alright..
Seems like my first work & travel visa in Australia runs out pretty soon and I'm not really likely to spent any more time on the internet to write eMails, letters or journals about the travelling. I'm pretty sure I will still keep uploading, what's happening. But it'll be in a really unregula bases and be more sporadic. Same about facebook and all that stuff. I might leave for the Phillipines and figure out over there, where to go next or how to move on.
Probably I'll stay with Kerry in Australia for another three months, but it's gonna be on a tourist visa, so work opportunities going down pretty hard. We'll see about his but we're both looking forward to our trip back up to Darwin, where we might work for my last month on a harbour cruises ship and after that we just have to see what's happening.

Anyway!
It feels like I've really cut all my strings to my home and just can't go back right now. There's way to much to see and to do. Can't see myselft in a flight back to germany the next few years..Maybe rather going through Asia or whatever.
Isn't it great when life is surprising you nearly everyday?
After I've finished to do some rework and reviewing of the older pictures, there'll be just new pics coming up now. Gonna upload some stuff about the new old van and the trip up there as soon as I can ^^
Cheers,
Twist

It's a fucking cunt of a job. Never worked so hard, stinky and dirty in my whole life. But it's great, I love it somehow. After a ten hours day you're so smashed, you can't even finish the chapter of the book you#re reading or the movie you're watching *gg*
The heat kills ja directly and if you can handle that the fucking heavy panels and dirty shells gonna drive you crazy. After five days we got in a big storm and were shaking like hell :D It's great, more pictures soon :D

Listening to my sonsg for Australia - Build up the soundtrack for my life!

Rise Against - Savior

It kills me not to know this
But I've all but just forgotten
What the color of her eyes were
And her scars or how she got them
As the telling signs of age rain down
A single tear is dropping
Through the valleys of an aging face
That this world has forgotten

There is no reconciliation
That will put me in my place
And there is no time like the present
To drink these draining seconds
But seldom do these words ring true
When I'm constantly failing you
Like walls that we just can't break through
Until we disappear

So tell me now
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'cause I don't know,
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just wanna save you
While there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer
For the questions that you still have

But the day pressed on like crushing weights
For no man does it ever wait
Like memories of dying days
That deafen us like hurricanes
Bathed in flames we held the brand
Uncurled the fingers in your hand
Pressed into the flesh like sand
Now do you understand?

So tell me now,
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'cause I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just wanna save you
While there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer
For the questions that you still have

1000 miles away
There's nothing left to say
But so much left that I don't know
We never had a choice
This world is too much noise
It takes me under
It takes me under once again

I don't hate you
I don't hate you, no

So tell me now,
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'cause I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just wanna save you
While there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer
For the questions that you still have

I don't hate you
I don't hate you
I don't hate you
I don't hate you, no

Edit:

To be honest, there's another song, that has to be included in my soundtrack:

There was a time, looking through myself
Wanting to pretend
If I escaped, I could fill myself
I don't think you can
Been far and wide
But that hole inside
Never really leaves
I went away, what I really left
Left behind was me

It's telling me
To be on my way home
Million miles away
Million miles away
I can't stay
I can't stay
Million miles away

Each passing day, every passing face
Seems like such a blur
I long to be
Home, silently
Lying next to her
Just to get back, by her side is all
All I need to be
I went away
But what I really left
Left behind was me

I need to be
Getting on my way home
A million miles away
Million miles away
I can't take
I can't take
A million miles away


And who still can't get enough have try on Incubus - Wish You Were Here
..I reckon that'll be it for this time ;) But I keep creating my soundtrack *hehe*

What the f***?!?
How could this happen? Running out of time, nerves and money while I'm awaiting my bike finally to get fixed. Took nearly a whole month now to find all the issues I was carrying around with the fat lady. The cunts in Katherine didn't make a good job on putting in the new magneto, so pieces and splinters of the old one blasted my stator into pieces and after all the whole electrician installations the bike got were just dodgy if not worse.
So after three weeks of try n error the mechanic got another LC4 to switch parts around and find hopefully a solution why that fat ass of a bike won't start. Actually it seemes like a leak of compression but it's all messy. I just hope for him to find a way while I'm already looking for a new job to save me what time and money is still left. All plans and ideas are overthrown now but I don't see any other way than making a rough decision. Anything else wouldn't lead to anything, just stress and hectic driving without the joy I'm seeking. So maybe there's a good opportunity for a nice job, we'll see..
After all it's one more time like always - stay flexible!

I arrived well and alive in Broome, where I stay at a just great camping site direct at the beach. I got good company and enjoy my time after that stressy Gibb River Road. There were a couple of breakdowns and falls along that track but also lots of great experiences I will never forget. The next step leads me down the westcoast to arrive hopefully in Perth by the second half of january. We will go bush for some days now at christmas, so we don't have to stress about all this event shit. After that I'm gonna get another really good service for Kali, my bike, to get her setup to do the long trip down. Until then we do a lot of fishing, beerdrinking and relaxing, just not to stress *hehe* I'm together with an austrian and a german guy, who are both absolutly nice guys and we have a lot of fun.
Well, that's it so far..
Hope everybody got some nice days around this time of the year.

My time at this station is running out and I don't know what's going to happen with me. Propably I'm gonna end between dead-driven Wallebies and mud on the road. My bike is doing alright so far but who knows what might happen as soon as I hit the road and got no chance to turn around. It feels like I gonna have to punch my head through the wall and just quit thinking about people, tomorrow or my doubts. The world I've lived in so far seems to be coming to an end and I'm living between the shadows of what I knew and what I'm afraid to confrontate..Mainly inside myself. I'm loosing myself in this wide and huge country and I'm not sure if I will ever find my way back...

Well well..
It's now around one month, that I've lived at Tipperary. The job i absolutly amazing, even if it's only gardening. This huge place was once really just a big decadent private zoo and you could cages and old walls everywhere. They got much to do, so I'm not worried about being busy for next weeks. If all works out good, I gotta get my motorbike working and being also done with the artwork, in a few days. After that I don't care anymore. As long as I'm able to ride it anywhere, I will arrive well. I was told, that this station is one of the biggest all over Australia. After all I will be able to start anywhere, as long as I say I'd worked here. So I'm a lucky smart ass, to get all the stuff I always wanted, without running after it. We'll see how long they gonna keep me but before I go there will be some chance to earn more money.

Moving out destination: Tuesday the 31/05/2011
So finally I found a reason to move on. Darwin, Northern Territory in Australia, is a beautiful city with lots of spots to head up to. I had definitly some good parties and great experience in this tropical point in a map so fucking huge, I still can't believe it!
Unfortunatly, I'm absolutly not interested in dancin, bitchin and random sex. Too much backpacker flooded the city just a few days before I arrived. So it was not that easy to find a job, orientate downtown or getting used to Australian Lifestyle. A bloody mixture of feelings and emotions struggled me down in the dirt. The great job at the Darwin Turfclub brought me more than just one step further, it gave me a perspective why and whatabout I'm in Australia. So after all trouble I had up to tuesday I'll work as a gardener in Tipperary Station, Adelaine River. Still NT, but away from a mess of a city. But just one hour to drive, there should be way to get a great time there. We'll see, until now I'm experiencing absolutly no worries!

You know this feeling?
Just getting 'round the corner getting something to drinkand when you turn 'round you lost the last 600 days.
Why does it happen this confusing mechanism of getting older and wondering what happened ntil today. After all you remember what you did and where you've been but the question returns inside my skull and keeps shouting: "And where have you been? Shouldn't there be any kind of remembering the feelings you had?" It's a fact meanwhile just to run down the time I get. Just like a big machine working until guarantee's over...

The missing link to me is the time I had just to stop and had a look 'bout everything what was so great but as much as I try there are only rushing hours, days and months lost by a tornado of musts and have tos and necessaries. I don't remember the last moment I was alone with myself and had the posibility to create my own path. The fear into my neck is to lose my deeper anchor while my ghost is to busy rushing on the daily trouble... Sometime this must be over...
