The Australia leg of this trip was done with my buddy Paul in tow. We rented a panelvan, and drove up and down the east coast, stopping wherever it looked like there would be good surf. The East Australia backpacker's circuit is pretty cool. Since everybody is either traveling north or south along the same route, and since everybody hits pretty much the same stops, you end up seeing a lot of the same people from place to place. Pretty soon, you end up with this loosely affiliated traveling posse of a dozen folks that always seem to turn up everyplace you go. All sorts of fun! For Leg Two, it was off to Bangkok to meet Jay, and later, Hannah for some rockclimbing on the beaches near Krabi. I put together about two hundred pages of trip reports below, so I won't go into detail. Rest assured, it was amazing!
