 This is kind of cool travelling with my laptop. Don't have to worry about using other people's computers and what not... although I haven't actually TRAVEL travelled with it yet... I know I'll be paranoid about travelling with it later when I'm at hostels.... but plenty of people do it. I've just never travelled with anything even semi-valuable before. Last trip all I had to worry about was my camera, my wallet, my passport and my eurail pass. That was all I cared about. I didn't care if I lost anything else. This time I've got my iTouch and laptop as well so hmm. But I won't be on the road for too long before I get a house (hopefully), so I just hope nothing happens over the next few weeks!

I'm at a restaurant at the moment. Deb works here, she's got a four hour shift and I'm just tagging along and she keeps randomly bringing me out food and drinks. Pretty cool haha. I like typing in cafe's... I've never really done it before. Noorat and Terang have a distinct lack of cafes... well Terang have a couple, but I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it there for a few reasons. 1. They are pretty crummy places, and 2. People I know would keep wanting to now what I'm doing. 

Had a really good night last night. We drove over to Hollywood and had a bit of a walk around, then went to Geisha House, a pretty cool Japanese restaurant. The food was SO YUM! I have to get used to how in your face and friendly American waiters are. Deb laughed at my reaction when the waiter sat down at our table and started chatting to us. I was like *bewildered look* "Hi?" Haha.  
We spent ages there - talking too much, my food was kinda cold by the time I finished it! After we left we went for a walk along where all the stars are - I got excited when I saw a name I actually recognised as I had no idea who most of them were! Had fun looking at all the handprints and footprints in front of the Chinese Theatre. Rita Hayworth had tiny feet and hands!! 

We didn't stay out too late as I was jetlagged and Deb is sick with a cold, but we still had a really good night. 

Today was pretty relaxed. We went out for breakfast, then drove up into the hills and saw some massive mansions and went to the beach and played in the rockpools. We got back in the car and realised we'd been there for an hour heh. Got some cool photos of the waves crashing on the rocks. I need to get an upload chord... Mine is still at Scott's house (he won't send it to me! I think he might have chucked it out...) Since I got home to Noorat I've been uploading my photos through my printer... which I can't exactly do anymore, so I need to figure that out soon.  

Anyway. Deb keeps bringing me out wine, so I might go before this stops making any sense whatsoever. 

I am a lot happier at the start of this trip than any other. I was SO FREAKING MISERABLE when I first got to Japan, and my first week in London last year I was so lonely and really wondered why the hell I was doing it... those thoughts were usually around 3-4am in the morning when I couldn't sleep. Jetlag hasn't been much of a problem this time thankfully! 

Also, I haven't just gotten out of a relationship, and don't have a boyfriend. I had a boyfriend back in Australia when I went to Japan who I missed insanely, and Ivan had just broken up with me when I went to London... so yeah, when you're travelling on your own.... SINGLEDOM RULES!!!

Ciao for now!
