Webheads Meet

Times when a webhead from far away comes to Australian shores are few and far between, but it happened last week in Melbourne. Jane Petring from Quebec and I met last week for dinner at a French restaurant with Vanessa, a friend and colleague of Jane's from Canada.

Jane came to Australia after a bicycle trip in South East Asia - mainly in Vietnam. We shared memories of places we'd both visited (Carla and co in Brasilia), Teresa and Joao in Lisbon, and Rita in Argentina, and Jane told me the story of how and why she became drummer....

We had a lovely evening, and as it so often is when meeting a webhead f2f for the first time it very quickly felt like being with an old friend. We all agreed that the food was excellent, but a little on the expensive side.

From here Jane journeys on to Florida, and then Colombia for a special occasion before heading home to Canada.

Jane said she loved Australia :) It was great to meet her. Any other Webheads want to come on down under?

PS I am a bit sunburnt in the pic above because I was at the football all afternoon in the surprisingly warm April sun.

Hi, Michael and Jane!

Keep enjoying, Jane!
