St Kilda

Today was an exquisite day exploring St Kilda, a very trendy section of Melbourne. The way the homes are built there is like nothing i've seen b4. The architectural design is exactly my style. Its a european and victorian mix. Old and classical looking mostly. Ill upload pics and vids I have @ some point. I took the mtn bike I have on loan from Johnny and tuned it up @ a local bike shop. I also bought 2 tire tubes a patch kit some lcd blinkers for the front and rear of the bike for night biking, a good lock and I changed the pedals to some quality ones with a foot insert. The reason I am gearing up is I am going on an expedition that will take around a week on my bike. I will be touring aroung the Mornington Peninsula and the surrounding areas. I will need all of these things. I got a waterproof top and bottom because the weather here is extremely unpredictable. Biking is a great way to explore the incrdible areas south of Melbourne. I will go down the Peninsula and all around. It will be a true mission with very few Backpacker Hostels on the way. Adventures lie around the corner and Im stoked as a pig in shit to meet them.
