Old saltymick is both a literal and metaphorical surfer who also likes traveling, philosophising, playing and performing music, drinking beer and life in general (don't we all?).

He says: "Most of my early Hubs are an account of my Around Australia Road Trip which begins in Sydney, goes south to Melbourne and Tasmania, thence back to Sydney and north to Cairns, continuing anti-clockwise around the continent. Each section is consecutively numbered (based on the chronology of the trip), but each is also a free-standing story of the particular place and time in which it is set. The journal was written as it happened so the reader, like me, experiences events as they unfold. It's a personal travelogue too, which I hope evokes the sights, sounds, feelings and sensations of a long road trip around a vast continent. 

In 2011-12, my partner and I made our biggest trip to date - an 12 month overland journey from England to Australia. Well, it's not all overland, we did take a couple of short flights in the course of the 25,000 mile excursion, the most important one being from East Timor to Darwin in Australia. I hope to publish a few Hubs relating to this trip but as you may imagine, it's a daunting task - I will keep trying.
