The Truth is Out There Scully!!!

The Truth is Out There Scully!!!

Firstly, I always re-read my previous post before beginning the next in an effort to ensure some form of flow and continuity! Having done this, I felt it came across with an air of negativity toward our time in the US to date – polar opposite from the reality of...
Family business and a few trips

Family business and a few trips

A man and his van! What have we been up to since we returned from Australia? A lot and not so much….. depending on how you look at it. Read on for a general update on some van changes, short trips, family business and more. Taking care of family business meant selling...
Slovakia

Slovakia

8/2014 All though we drove through it all, Slovakia for us was just one overnight  stay in  the capital Bratislava during our overland trip from Europe to Australia in 2014. Overwhelmed from it’s neighbour Czech Republic this small country does not fall back in...
Fiji

Fiji

1-2005 Fiji, just the name makes your mind start travelling. In 2005 I was just a three-hour flight away, so I had to get on that flight. Fiji is a huge group country of tiny islands with some of the smaller ones only kilometre long and 500 metres wide. The two...
Australia

Australia

11/2005 This huge country wasn’t in my travel plans until a friend of mine, Diana Psitos, made me change my mind and tempted me to go there. For me Australia is a paradise made for families. The whole structure of the country is orientated towards that. I spent two...
Uruguay is Just the Place for a Holiday

Uruguay is Just the Place for a Holiday

Pin this for later: Uruguay is just the place to have a nice holiday. Beautiful long sandy beaches, summer when the cold winter hits the northern hemisphere, and good tourist infrastructure for all budgets. The country is safe and the people are friendly. Tired of the...
Hiking in the Blue Mountains of Australia

Hiking in the Blue Mountains of Australia

I have two outdated blog posts that I need to get off my mind. This one is about the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia. It was a final activity in our month long trip, and one that left us with great memories! With just a day left of our month in Australia, we...
Sydney, Australia.  Wow, just wow!

Sydney, Australia. Wow, just wow!

I have two posts that I need to get off my mind. This one is about our days in Sydney. We had such a terrific time exploring different aspects of the city, that it is difficult to combine them all into one post. But in an effort to expedite the process and share...
Easter Island

Easter Island

Moai… everywhere, everywhere! You know those big stone-head things for which the island is famous? They’re called ‘Moai’, and there’s almost 900 of them. Many of them are either nose-planted, face-down in the dirt or buried out of sight, but a famous few are standing...
Building our new Motorhome

Building our new Motorhome

Since we’ve been back in Australia I haven’t been blogging. I have chosen to only blog about overlanding, and not about anything that isn’t relevant to (our) world travel in a motorhome. At the moment, we are working on building our new motorhome....
Be kind, honest and fair- Nimbin, Australia

Be kind, honest and fair- Nimbin, Australia

In 1973 an Aquarius Festival was held in the mountains of Queensland, Australia. This event was a gathering of university students, aboriginals and like-minded folks. They painted, sang and danced. They offered workshops on various farming and aboriginal skills. Many...
A nations capital

A nations capital

As we continue to travel around Australia (without our van or our dogs!) we are finding areas of fantastic beauty and great information. It has been a joy to learn about culture, language, history and current events. From Melbourne (where we flew to Tasmania) we drove...
Australia- interesting vehicles

Australia- interesting vehicles

From the moment we arrived the vehicles have awed us. These folks really “get it” when it comes to overlanding type rigs. We learned a few facts and made a lot of observations on our own.   Then we stopped by the Automobile museum in Launceston, Tasmania for an info...
Driving on our own through Australia!

Driving on our own through Australia!

With the trip well underway, we were given the opportunity to drive on our own along the East coast of Australia.  This took us through many small towns, beaches and sights to see.  We slept at some fun places, saw some interesting animals and ended up in Melbourne...
Sydney to Jervis Bay- the scenic route

Sydney to Jervis Bay- the scenic route

The van is up and running, but we can’t hit the road just yet. So, with some time to waste, and a passport to fill, we had decided Australia was a great destination. Add in the fact that we know people in the country and the US dollar is strong—how could we...
