A little bit of luck in Litchfield

Litchfield was our next destination and we were super excited to be finally heading there.  We got a fairly late start from Darwin after dropping off my laptop to Humpty Doo for diagnosis after discovering it had stopped working, we knew that we would be pushing it to find a National Park campground for the …

Catching up in Perth

We’ve said a couple of times how meeting people has been one of the best aspects of our trip so far. We’ve been lucky to meet some fabulous people so far, some of which we know we will keep in touch with long after our trip has finished. Bill and Belinda and their family are …

Tranquility in the Southern Forests

There is just something special about canopies that reach for the sky and stand majestic in solidarity, don't you think? I’ve been a big fan of forests for a long time as my million pics from Tassie would attest to. What can I say, there’s just something about trees that I adore. This trip has …

Surprise! We’re home… for a short visit anyway

The idea for making a quick dash home to surprise the in-laws had been fermenting for some time. Given that we still needed to pick up our tent and camping gear at some stage in preparation for our trip to Tasmania (or arrange for a friend to bring it to Melbourne, which was the original …

The one where Osher threw the most EPIC shade

So, I touched on this a few weeks ago, and fessed up that I have a bit of a penchant for the latest season of  The Bachelor.  I was quite happy that Parmigiana (AKA Snezana, which is, by the way her actual real name) won, although I still feel Heather was robbed and I am working on …

It’s time for Marriage Equality Australia

Off the back of an historic referendum result, it was announced this week that gay marriage will be legalised in Ireland.  Yay Ireland! This fabulous result has sparked up the debate again across Australia (finally!) with commentary from all sides of government in the past 24hrs following the Leader of the Opposition's decision to introduce a private members bill …
