An Aussie Hog Roast

So two new backpackers arrived on the farm; Kieren, 21 from London and Bryan, 23 from Manchester.  They had it easy, one day picking, a day off and then another day picking (all on big juicy beans). However, Bryan couldn’t hack it and quit after two days. So we sent him on his way the…

Broke and Hungry

So Christmas and New Year were over once again, however I didn’t feel that emptiness I usually felt after the magic of the festive period ended. After all, it was summer! The only thing I did feel the bitter sting of was being bloody broke! Back home I was used to holiday pay but when…
