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I have two outdated blog posts that I need to get off my mind.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...
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...
With some time on our hands….

With some time on our hands….

While waiting for the transmission to get finished we found ourselves with some time on our hands. So we started researching places we could go. We looked specifically at places that we would not be able to ship or drive to. Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the elusive Cuba...
Engine installation final steps-

Engine installation final steps-

(I know that a few of you are waiting to hear about Australia- but before I can do that, I have to wrap this up.) Installing the shiny new crate motor in the van was an interesting process. The obvious task was the work to be done with removal of the old engine. But...
An oven for travel

An oven for travel

I’m not sure if this was a Christmas present for me or for H. I’ve been wanting an oven in Blac, mostly to make cakes in, and H likes it when I bake cakes. Finally we have the solution. We’d looked at plenty of other oven options but only recently...
