Haul away, you rollin’ king! Heave away, haul away! Haul away, Oh hear me sing! We’re bound for South Aus-tra-lia Yes pop-pickers, as per the beaut of a Cornish sea-shanty suggests, we have indeed been bound for South Australia and have crossed yet another state border (I was ready for it this time) after what … More A long and (not very) winding road
Having ended my last missive with our arrival in Perth, we since traversed the country from the west coast back to the east to spend time with Will, Nicky and Caden in Sydney. What a blessing and a joy it has been too. So this time we’ve been focussing more on people than places – … More Coast to Coast
First off. I did the most wonderful blog for you – took me ages – and, even though I say it myself, it was a stonker. However, as I may have mentioned before, WIFI is a little bit eratic at the best of times and after several hours work, I had not accounted for the … More A tale of 5 cities (or towns)
Luckily for you, I’ve struggled to find internet over recent weeks, so you’ve been spared my musings. Ha ha, not any longer! This is a short one though so bear with me. Last time I mistakenly advised our mileage in old money – miles – so not 3000 miles achieved but 3000 kms. Not that … More The only way is up! (and then across and down a bit)
Last time I posted I was reporting of snow in the Blue Mountains. Now we’re in the high end 30 degrees in the Top End aka Darwin. Yes, 4,000 miles in and we’ve made it to the top spot! Not the highlight though by any means as you will soon discover, but lots of things … More Well, a lot of stuff has happened since last time…
Well, right now actually Will & Nicky down under!! Yes, here we are – we finally made it. What’s more it’s time to say “G’day” to Bondi Bob the campervan who has been carefully cared for by said Will & Nicky whilst we have been unable to get across to world to see them all … More When will I see you again….
Well, here we are on our last day in Scotland and our NC500 adventure – and what an adventure it has been! I know it’s almost the end of the trip for two reasons: 1) We’re definitely travelling downhill as we’re going faster (or is that the most amazing roads – more on that later) … More You take the high road…..
Yes, lovely people, today we reached some interesting milestones. First off: Yes, we hit the top of mainland Britain. It was a shame the weather had returned to a more gloomy affair after the unbridled excitement of yesterday’s wall to wall sunshine, but the roads were still nice and twisty – mostly single track – … More Top that!
That Willie Nelson track that we played over and over in Australia has never been more welcome or apt than now. Have a listen, you’ll get what I mean. A full tank, the open road, the odd rain shower (who cares) and there you are – bliss! To be fair it was a bit wet … More On the road again…
Well, it’s been a while but there’s also been a fairly significant interruption to travels which we will all be familiar with…. Anyway, we’re lucky to be back on the road again doing a trip up to bonnie Scotland to do the North Coast 500. But first, as if the blog address wasn’t confusing enough … More Hello, hello, we’re back again!
