Dear Cyclists,
We are David,Amira & Salome and go Biking on 2 bikes with 3 People,
1 Midwife , 1 Child & 1 Playback Theatre Actor/Musician(Melodic Percussion).

Our Goal is to end in Australia 2 live & work in Queensland.

But first Cycle around Australia , we are still looking for nice campsites where our girl can have some fun.

Hope to meet you all on the Road, we have a pink and purple Santos Rohloff Bike with belt drive so if you see that it's us.

PS1: Tips for Queensland :if you know nice places to go to meet musicians to create a nice trio or quartet for jazz,bossa/world music let me know.

PS@: if you know a nice place to work as an midwife let us know

Happy Vibes Merry X-mas and an Creative 2010

Peace

David,Amira & Salome

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Sounds like a great plan...when are you coming to Qld?

Regarding music; The annual Woodford Folk Festival is a fantastic music festival which is much more than "folk". Heaps of world music and jazz/blues/roots etc.
http://www.woodfordfolkfestival.com/home/

It starts Boxing Day and goes until January 2nd
It has a specific camping section for people who are travelling by bike plus other support for cyclists such as luggage pick up and security etc (see the following link: http://www.woodfordfolkfestival.com/mai ... menuID=117

However you do need to be aware how HOT and humid it can be to ride in Qld at that time of year. It is a serious issue for those who are not aclimatised.

Regarding working as a midwife, Qld Health is depsarately short of nursing staff of all kinds so work will be easy to come, Unfortunately you may find that Qld is very hospital-centric in its approach to birthing compared to Europe!! Home births etc and the role of mid-wifes and hierachy with doctors is an ongoing topic of strong debate across the country.

Anyway sounds like you will have a great time, keep us informed of your plans I am sure the BNA members across Australia will be of help to you.

Thanx for the tips, it will take some time before we are there but already busy with planting some seeds and hope when we arrive there are some beautifull Flowers that we can enjoy.

I know as an musician it takes a lot of time to find musicians to play with and to perform on Festivals.
Here in Holland i play on Jazz Festivals and in Theatre Groups but when we arrive in Australia we have to start from zero.

So i am really thankfull for your tips and advice.

Still looking for an Guitar,Sax or Bass Player to perform with.

But first we gonna Cycle.

My Music Style is on WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/SAMSONART

Thanx for your time

Greetings and warm regards from a snowing Holland.

Here all the traffic is down but i cycled to the shops with no problem at all.

Happy Days

David

Hi David. Looking at your video I think we have similar tastes in music. Please look me up when you get to Brisbane. I'd love to have a jam.

No thanks. Hippies jam. Real muso's work.

I don't fit into hippie culture. I got kicked out of the commune because I got a hair cut and used soap. Sucks to be me.

Anyone willing to judge another should also be willing to judge themselves just as hard if not harder.

Plenty of interest and humour all over the forum...hassling apparently friendly cyclists who are interested in visiting our courntry....hmmmmm not too interesting really, but to be fair that is only my opinion, for those of you who find taking the piss out of fellow cyclists interesting....that is your absolute "right".

Hope you enjoy it.

Merry Christmas

Honestly Miss Pine. If a bit of didge and steel drum upsets your delicate sensibilities, then I challenge you to watch this video. You must watch it all the way through, with the sound up high. :lol:
