Looking for 42

I’ve decided to give my new life a new theme and branding. I have gone with Looking For 42 as a reference to the ongoing search for the meaning of life. To celebrate this fresh start, I have gone for a whole new social media identity: Blog – http://looking442.wordpress.com Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/lookingfor42 Twitter – @AndrewGills […]

New blog theme and name?

In celebration and anticipation of my fresh start in life, I am considering a change in blog title: Looking For 42. No, I have not yet read Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy but I have a copy because I do quite like the title. What do you all think?

While I was there, I added my name to the volunteer register to help […]

Day 13 – A day in the life of this working traveler

I hear the birds outside my tent. They’ve just started to chat so it must be dawn. I snuggle down into my sleeping bag and just listen to them. If feelings can be delicious, then this is it. The new tent has proved a great success as I am waking feeling more refreshed and human […]

Day 12: Going on a pippi hunt (and cycling on the beach)

Main Beach is on the ocean-side of Minjerribah, some 15km (9.5 miles) from where I am camped. From the Point Lookout Surf Club, the beach stretches out before me as far as my eyes can sea. Stand up paddle boarders are surfing just off the point behind the breakers. I enjoy watching them gently move […]
