  • On 21st October we were up early, had breakfast and were picked up by our car and driver just before 9am for the trip to Southampton. Being a Sunday the city traffic was light and we had a smooth run to the port, arriving well......

  • After leaving Seatown we drove to Portloe in Cornwall on the day Storm Callum (ex hurricane) was battering the west coast, so it was very windy and wet. The radio reports were of coastal flooding, power outages and trees down, so it was with some......

  • Wed 3/10/18 was cloudy, but dry and warmer. We took the train to Zaanse Schans to see the old windmills. There are only 12 windmills still there out of about 1000 built many years ago. We toured one which still operates, grinding minerals and other......

  • One of the really good things about travelling in Europe is the modern and efficient railway system. Even better is using a prepaid Eurail Pass to hop on and off trains wherever you want without having to buy tickets. Yesterday we planned to go to......

  • 25 June 2018 – We left Winton and drove to a free camp at Dingo Creek Downs near Longreach. This is a huge bush camp with tracks going well back from the road and there was only 1 other van there. We had a camp......

  • 22 May 2018 – We decided to leave our friends in Little Mulgrave and move to a caravan park in Cairns, mainly because the lack of internet and mobile phone reception made it difficult to make arrangements with friends in Cairns. It was a shame......

  • 8 May 2018 – We hiked up to the lookout at Halliday Bay. It was quite steep and once at the top we had to climb up a big rock to see the view, and it was well worth the effort. When we returned to......

  • 1 May 2018 – after a noisy and uncomfortable night at Blackwater showgrounds (note to self – don’t stay there again) we left early and travelled to Bundoora Dam via Middlemount. The free camp ground at the dam was a beautiful peaceful place and we......
