I met Scott and Sophie in Hervey Bay — way back when before Fraser Island. They are the cutest couple. She’s only 18, he’s 23, but they’ve been all over China and Australia already. She’s a laugh, and I think she’s getting to Cairns tonight.
The one thing about poor Sophie I hate to tell everyone is that she is seriously allergic to bed bugs and she’s gotten them twice. Her entire body was covered with red bites the last time I saw her, and it was painful to see. She gets me more scared of bed bugs than any literature or horror stories out there. Knock on wood she won’t get them again. Everyone!
