Miles of the Nullarbor

The Nullarbor Plain, the holy grail of the big lap, a pilgrimage of nothingness that people either love or hate. We were never planning to do the Nullarbor slowly. Corey and I tend to subscribe to the ripping the bandaid approach on roadtrips - no mucking about, no extended breaks, just keep moving. But the …

Friendships and random connections

Nearly ten years ago, Corey and I did a Cosmos bus tour of Europe and met some fabulous people on that trip, some of whom we are still in contact with today. So when planning our trip and knowing we would be passing through Penong, west of Ceduna, we knew that we would be stopping to …

Playing tourist in Streaky Bay

We’d been looking forward to spending some time in the Streaky Bay shire as we’d heard so many great things and of course, many of the camping, caravanning and 4wding magazines always write up great reviews. Fortunately for us, we have a friend who has a holiday shack that we could use whilst we were in …

Breathing in the fresh Eyre

Sometimes, when you travel through places that are obviously pretty on the surface, you can completely understand why people stop to spend months exploring a place in depth. The Eyre Peninsula is one of those places. We didn't get the opportunity to explore the Eyre Peninsula as much as we liked to.  Even though we …

Slowing down at Lincoln

And so I'm finally up to date! Three months of blog posts that were abandoned, because let's be honest... I couldn't be bothered.  After our extended stay in Mildura, I lost the momentum and just didn't get around to updating our travels.  I'd write notes on my phone and of course took heaps of pics …

Westward bound

Finally, we're heading west! After a extended stay back home in Mildura and killing time in Melbourne whilst our van was in getting some things repaired, it is finally time to really start our trip and head west, to places that we've not been before! We left rainy Melbourne/Ocean Grove and made our way through …

Riverside at Morgan via Adelaide

So our plans to follow the Murray River were thwarted somewhat thanks to our solar issue. We’d anticipated this might be the case hence the reason for the direct trip to Murray Bridge rather than to Tailem Bend as originally planned. With both the ute and caravan dropped off for a service, we headed to …

The day we got to visit our fur-babies

Today’s the day we got to see our fur-babies. Our awesome breeders have been looking after George and Penny, our British Bulldogs. One of our biggest struggles when making the decision to do this trip, was to figure out what to do with our 2 beloved pooches and feline friend Zuki. Knowing that George and …

Where the river meets the sea

Having grown up a river boy, born and bred on the Murray River, Corey has long wanted to follow the river out to where it meets the sea. So when planning our trip, we factored in the reverse and decided to follow the Murray River from its mouth back home to Mildura where we’d be …

When in Robe…

There wasn't a lot of time to reflect upon our fabulous Tassie adventure, because no sooner had we docked and reached the mainland, were we off again on the next leg of our trip.  Having left our van out at a friend's place just out from Geelong, we arrived at their place late and head off …
