OZ Vlog #6: Contiki Beaches and Reefs- Outback, Australia

It is actually very refreshing to step away from the sandy beaches and venture inland for a bit of Australian culture.

Today we spent the night in a converted airplane hangar at a local family’s farm in the outback. There we took part in a tractor ride, learned about Australian beef, and tried whip cracking.

Tonight I learned two new things about myself:

  1. I suck at whip cracking. I failed to capture it on film but I ended up not being able to make a single whip sound after 5 minutes of trying. I also managed to give myself a whip shaped welt across my lower back for the rest of the evening.
  2. I love karaoke.  Our karaoke night was definitely one of my favorite nights on tour. I ended up singing 4 songs:
  1. A duet to Shania Twain’s– That Don’t Impress Me Much.
  2. A duet to Summer Nights from Grease with my awesome tour manager John.
  3. Solo Bon Jovi- Living On A Prayer.
  4. A duet to Alannah Myles – Black Velvet, in which I realized afterwards that I didn’t know the lyrics as well as I thought I did.

    I too love karaoke, but don’t do it often now as some of my friends that used to love it, have gone off it. Pity you did not film your efforts as you have quite a good voice (as in Puglove) and I think it would have been great.
