Sadly we have come to the end of our 4-week adventure. What an adventure it has been too. A haven for outdoor nutters like us with wide, expansive vistas that never fail to impress and roads that are just perfect for motorbikes – bliss. Not surprising that the roads are so lovely in a country … More Home again, home again, jiggety-jig
No time for jet lag You’ve already had a bit of an introduction to our exciting 2-wheel adventures in New Zealand (more on that in the next instalment), now for some 4-wheel adventures with the wonderful Will and Nicky. After a knackering but nice flight and stop-over in Singapore where we got to see up … More Don’t stop me now, we’re having such a good time ….
Gd’day from down under (again) Yes folks, the intrepid explorers are at it again on 2 wheels and this time it’s on the other side of the world in New Zealand. Not on Tom and the Colonel, they wouldn’t hack the travel – especially the Colonel, he’d want first class all the way. No, on … More Hello, hello, we’re back again!!
Sounds so much more exciting I think than race circuit don’t you think?!! Bikes, more bikes and a little bit of sightseeing The initial ride down from Cordoba to Jerez was a bit monotonous as we needed to circumnavigate the city and then get some kms under the belt. However, what it did give us … More Circuito de velocidad
Well, it’s about time we got onto 2 wheels again. Aussie Dieter was a blast, but we need to rebalance the blog with motorbike adventures and Tom is really loving this one. Tim is too, but more of that later. This trip is a jaunt down through France and Spain to Jerez and the MotoGP. … More Yes, Tom, Tim and I are at it again!
In the words of Willie Nelson, the final section of our trip has not disappointed: “on the road again, Goin’ places that I’ve never been, Seein’ things that I may never see again, And I can’t wait to get on the road again” Never a truer word but I sincerely hope that we will see … More “On the road again…”
This recent section of the trip has seen us leave the outback proper and get reacquainted with the east coast. Before that we’d spent a few days in our northern-most location Karumba Point on the Gulf of Carpentaria which was hot and humid but gave us the most spectacular sunsets over the bay – best … More Boats, trains and automobiles (and other forms of transport)
Since the last blog we’ve notched up 7,000 Kms and crossed the Tropic of Capricorn – not something you do every day – and we feel like we’ve experienced some of the ‘real Australia’. It has certainly taken us through some fantastic scenery, introduced us to some interesting characters and tested our good old English … More Definitely feeling like we now ‘come from a land down under…’
What a week it has been! So much to talk about I hardly know where to begin. It ends with two once-in-a-lifetime experiences but more on them later…. 2 wheels on my waggon No, don’t panic. Aussie Dieter hasn’t come a cropper and lost a couple, but we’re talking about a great weekend of two-wheel … More Wine, wide open spaces and wonderful new experiences
…Motoring & Magnificent landscapes, Massive Mammals, Missing Marsupials, Motorbikes, Melbourne and Mosquitos Motoring & Magnificent landscapes: The big road trip has begun! After the great Bathurst 1000 experience, it was back to work for the kids (sorry) and on the road for us. We’re already up to 2,500 km in Aussie Dieter (aka the motorhome – … More Lately I have mostly been considering things that begin with the letter M…
