BikerBeef and I have been to Australia many times for holidays. We started visiting Australia for Gay/Lesbian Mardi Gras in March 1996 (been there, done that -- once was fun but enough), and we have returned to Australia about every two years hence. We have fallen in love with Melbourne, its people, and its great public transportation system. I taught a course in New Zealand in 2000, and BikerBeef came with me for a three-week self-guided tour. Here are some photos of us in these beautiful lands.
