Filthy Wheels

Greetings, and welcome to the catalogue of my travel blogs. If you didn’t realise, I like to explore and see the world as much as I can, and taking my typewriter, camera and often an iPad lets me tell you all about the experience.

I steer Ruby down to the city of Geelong and Queenscliffe in search of beautiful scenery and nice typewriters. However the weather ends up being only conducive to one.
Miss Jane and I explore the towns of Wangaratta, Beechworth, Glenrowan, Yakendandah and Milawa.
I hit the road on my motorbike and head in to the Wide Open Road cafe to do some typing.

Steve Snow and myself take a drive from Brisbane to Melbourne in order to deliver it to Jane. On the way we hunt typewriters, explore run down pubs, type in parliament and just generally make a nuisance of ourselves.
