  1. Oh ce vieux soirCe…Bon sinon DDz j’aime plutôt pas mal cette page…Enfin on comprend quelque chose à tes kms parcourus…
    1/6 du voyage…Encore 50 jours…

  2. Go on big Dede ! We can tell a lot of things about what you are doing, but I am pretty sure that it is one of the rare things that do make sense !

    Keep on cycling, see you when you come back

    Karim

  3. Mais maintenant on arrive plus à savoir si tu es en avance ou en retard sur le nouveau planning. Essaie de nous faire le reste à parcourir…
    Sinon très kiffant de nous mettre les posts par rapport à l’endroit c’est très chouitte…

    BisouS beau gosse et amuse toi bien! (attention aux crocos, serpents et autre reptiles agressifs…)

    PS : Je veux des photos de joueurs de “Lacrosse” ou de football australien !

  4. Au fait l’artiste… Question de haute importance (peut être un peu prématurée mais de très haute importance néanmoins) :
    Une fois arrivé à Darwin tu vas foutre quoi ?

    béco

    • Je l’ai pas encore dit à mon frère, mais un gars de l’hôtel à Melbourne nous a appelé pour nous dire qu’il avait trouvé le passeport d’André…

      Je t’envoie ce message en privé pour pas perturber le sportif.

      • Ça ne devrait pas poser de problèmes, le retour à Melbourne sera plus facile, il connait le chemin maintenant. En plus dans l’autre sens ça à l’air d’être que de la descente…

  5. En fait ça fait un sacré détour… T’es déjà à 4200 bornes parcourues et seulement au milieu du désert ! ! !

    • “Et seulement au milieu du desert”… en meme temps en Australie ce genre de remarque peut s appliquer a une grande partie du territoire!! Sinon c est plus 2/3 du trajet que la moitie…

  6. j’avais du retard à rattraper mais au fond de nulle part dans un petit village gaulois je n’avais pas d’ordin!
    waou quel périple et surtout merci pour toutes les super photos et le journal!
    attends encore un peu pour proposer à ton petit neveu de t’accompagner… ou alors n’oublie pas les petites roues hihi! ce serait peut-être mieux sur la tôle ondulée…
    A la prochaine! biz de la tantine!
