Year of the Kangaroo

8th August 2015 So there it is. 12 Months of travelling around and living in Australia. So much done but so so much more still to do. It only feels like yesterday that we arrived off the plane in Perth in search of adventure and (after 7 months in Asia), wine and cheese! What started […]

Reeling in the Year:2014

Today marks one year since we pulled on our rucksacks and said goodbye to Lucy and Martin in Greenwich, London. We boarded the train to Heathrow with a one way ticket to Perth Australia via Delhi, Bangkok and Bali. Our tummies were tumbling, there was mixture of excitement, fear, sadness and nerves inside. Little did […]

West Is Best: Highlights of Western Australia

Our month in Western Australia had come to an end, it was time to pack up those rucksacks and bid farewell to Eilidh, Baxter and Misty the cat. We were both sad to leave but we had to head east. We absolutely loved our time in the west. Certainly Western Australia is under sold and […]

Exmouth

So we had made it to our last stop on the Great North Tour, the town of Exmouth. The big draw here is the Cape Range National Park and it is also home to one of the Top 10 Dives in the World, at the nearby Navy Pier. Ingmar ‘Dutchy’ would be enjoying himself there […]

Snorkelling! What’s your price for flight!

Yeah that’s how that song went! 130 Years after the crew of the schooner Maud , another motley crew had arrived in Coral Bay – one of the best places in the world. The beach here was superb and the area is Australia’s only fringing reef! We checked into the hostel and had a look […]

North, Miss Teschmacher. Due north!

  Our plan was to explore Western Australia before heading East to Melbourne. With the South covered in our last road trip and the Indian Ocean lying to our West there was only one more place to go…. North! As Western Australia is vast the options were limited. A proper vehicle would be expensive and […]

Norman Stanley Fletcher…

Fremantle is a home for many things. One of these is a UNESCO World Heritage Site Prison. Today we would be exploring this establishment.   We signed up for the tour and after spending 20 minutes looking at the free galleries the hand bell was rung and we lined up with the rest of the […]

Yorkie

Hi There. Before you read this article can you please take a look to your right (of the screen). You may have not noticed the picture of the BUPA Blog Awards. Well we have been nominated for one of their prizes under the ‘Travel Blog’ section. This was only possible thanks to our lovely readers. […]

My Kingdom For A Horse

Nearby to Lake Grace is a very bizarre art exhibition. It’s not in a gallery or a certain artspace, but along a stretch of highway. According to Tripadvisor…“The Tin Horse Highway is a laughing matter! The dusty paddocks surrounding Kulin have become a gallery of bright, quirky, community creations. What started as an authentic community […]

Amazing Grace?

After Albany the plan had been to head to Esperance, some 700kms away. With the weather starting to turn and the fact that it’s really only beaches out that way, we made the decision to head back inland on our way back to Perth. Karen identified Hyden – home of the famous Wave Rock as […]

30000 Hits Woohoo!

Yesterday our blog has hit 30000 views so now would be a good time to crunch the numbers and see what trends we have seen on our trip so far. But before we do that we want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who spends time checking out our blog!!   Travel   […]

Albany

It was time for John to step up and do some serious driving. Denmark to Albany was his mission! Albany would be a challenge, as according to the Denmark Visitor Centre lady Albany is a city so you need to pay more attention guys..as it has roundabouts! So there you have it. City status in […]

Denmark?

We are going to Denmark, we are going to Denmark!! I have never been to Scandinavia before. This is still true, as the Denmark in question is the name of a small town in Western Australia that is situated near the city of Albany on the south coast. We got parking in the ‘centre’ of […]

March of the Ents…

It was quite a journey to Denmark (Western Australia), so we decided to stop in a little place called Walpole for the night. Driving through the south-west forests was special. Both sides of the road teeming with giant karri and tingle trees, whose branches create a canopy above the road. It’s no wonder why the […]

Lighthouse Family

It is not every day you climb the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia and observe breathtaking views of where the Southern and Indian Ocean’s meet. Well it is if you work there, but we don’t 🙂 The lighthouse in question was in Cape Leeuwin – named after the first known ship to visit the area, […]
