It offers so many things I love: motorcycles, tattoos, cool music, lovable bad guys, angsty characters and leather jackets. Ron Perlman and Charlie Hunnam are great in their roles and look quite at home in the saddles of their bikes.
So far there is season 1 with 13 episodes. A second season has been ordered.
More information on the show and the characters can be found on the official homepage:

Samstag war ich dort und hatte sehr viel Spass. Es gab viel zu sehen, leckere Dinge zu essen und ich habe mich noch mit netten Freunden getroffen.
Hier nur ein paar wenige Fotos von den Handarbeiten. Wer gerne noch mehr erfahren will sollte hier schauen: http://www.klatschmohn-seligenstadt.de/htm/handwerkermarkt.htm
.... und die Wolle in ihrem Urzustand.

So here he is, Leon!
He was made with leftover sockyarn on the magic loop. I think he turned out quite well.
If anyone is interested in making their own, the free pattern can be found here http://fuzzymitten.com/ or on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fuzzy-mitten-lamb.

So far I've seen the first three episodes and I really enjoyed them. Interesting cases, very likeable characters and easy humor. That the title role is played by good looking Nathan Fillion doesn't hurt either. ;)

To get down the mountain and take a rainforest hike I had to go down by cable car and go up buy the worlds steepest train. But it was worth it.
Now we are back in Sydney for the last 5 days of our Australian adventure.
I've taken hundreds of pictures and when I get back I will upload the best of the best so everyone who is interested can have a look.

We saw the 12 Apostles, London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge and many other gorgeous sites. The weather is great, not so hot and always a nice wind. Tomorrow we are heading back to Melbourne, so we can catch the train for Sydney on Friday morning. They predicted a high of 39 degrees Celsius for that day, so I am glad that I will be sitting in an aircondition train heading for cooler parts of the country.

The main subject that everyone talks about are of course the bushfires near here, which are the worst that Australia ever had. Luckily we have not been anywhere near there.
Besides seeing many of the sights Melbourne has to offer, we've already taken two daytrips into the surrounding areas.
One to the Grampian Mountains. The hiking there was very strenuous and the flies a real pest, but it is a beautiful place.
Another trip was to the Dandenong Ranges. There we travelled through the bush via an old steam train called "Puffing Billy". Lots of fun!!
Today we will be spending in the little town of St Kilda. It is supposed to have a lovely beach. That will give us a chance to relax a bit. Monday we are leaving to travel the Great Ocean Road.
Of course we also met the Melbourne Knitters. They were a nice and welcoming group of people and we had a good time knitting and chatting.
Unfortunately I have not yet been able to upload any of the photos that we took, so there is no shot of me in my 'lovely' sun hat. ;) Maybe next time!!
