Family time at Carnarvon

I’d been looking forward to getting to Carnarvon for a while, not because of a particular tourist attraction or point of interest, but because we were dropping in to see my cousin whom I hadn’t seen in close to 20 years. After we’d spent our time out at Quobba (and the Carnarvon Hospital), we spent …

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 …

Throughout one’s life, you meet people who become fabulous friends and even though they might move away from the vicinity of your day to day life, the friendship remains strong.

Tears, goodbyes & sangas for dinner

Well, we made it to Broken Hill! Yes there were tears, and some very sad goodbyes, but after a later than desired start, we arrived at the BH Racecourse around 6pm to claim our $15 per night unpowered site... mainly because that was all that was left.  A very popular stopover, with very cheap prices, …

The highs and lows

It's so nice to see the end of what has been a massive week! Emotional, exhausting and finally over, I'm looking forward to turning my mind towards our impending departure date and crossing off the items on my growing to do list over the next two weeks! To recap (coz I'm too tired to elaborate): …
