    Armidale

    January 17 in Australia

    Weer langzaamaan in het meer bewoonde deel van NSW, doe ik een tour langs een kort (12jr) geleden gesloten goudmijn. De wegen en natuurpark worden nu op kosten van de delvers onderhouden en opgeknapt. Bij een volgende stop zie ik dat in het eerstvolgende stadje het grootste jaarlijkse Elvis festival gehouden wordt, dus de volgende dag het feestgedruis in. Na deze mensenmassa weer leuk de kleine dorpsweggetjes opgezocht, inclusief een bergweg die op een boerenerf lijkt te eindigen, maar verbaasde farmer zet t hek open, en ik kan weer verder.
    Nu beland in Armidale, een van de mooiere victoriaans bebouwde steden. De attractie voor mij is de gorge, met een hike naar beneden, 3 uur dalen, en weer 3 uur omhoog.

    Armidale

    January 5, 2017 in Australia

    3 nights at the Showground. Great place. We really enjoyed Armidale with its heritage buildings, churches, colleges and of course universities. Went on a 2.5 hour heritage bus tour run by the Visitor Centre which was fantastic. The Teachers College and University of New England were highlights. Very much cooler than the coast...11-25° Armidale is the highest city in Australia.

    Back home (Armidale)

    January 30, 2017 in Australia

    After 8 weeks of travelling, 4 flights and around 15.000km I arrived back home in Armidale.
    Those 8 weeks have been more than amazing. 💕
    I am truly thankful for all the magical things I got to see/do. and it really has been an adventure of a lifetime. 💕
    Thank you to everyone who made all of this possible for me. 💕

    Back home to Armidale for the last time

    June 12, 2017 in Australia

    After four amazing days in Sydney it was time to say goodbye. Goodbye to this extraordinary city which we visited so many times in the last year and if it was only as a stopover at the airport.
    We left heavy hearted because it will probably be quite some time (I do plan on coming back one day💕) before we will see Sydney again.
    Next week we will fly to Sydney but only to change planes and fly to Melbourne so that wasn't much of a help.
    Those last four days showed me a new side of Sydney (not quite as crowded as on New Years Eve and somehow more relaxed than usual) which I've come to love and I think I can say that Brisbane and Sydney are now equal at first place in my top Australian cities ranking. 💕
    It was not only our last time exploring Sydney, it was also our last time flying home to Armidale. The place we got to call home for the last year.
    I still can't believe how fast time has flown by and that we only have 8 days left (it is the 15th as I'm writing this) until we have to leave this place and all our friends here behind.
    Two days ago on Tuesday we had our farewell at the school assembly (one week early because the last week tends to get quite hectic).
    We were praised by the girls and got a goodbye card from the people we worked with and a NEGS sports bag with our names embroided on them as a gift (quite handy because I needed a second piece of luggage anyway and they really are beautiful). 💕
    Heather also said a few words about us and we gave a short thank you speech to the school and everyone we worked with. 💕
    It was one of the hardest things we had to do simply because it meant recalling all the wonderful friendships that have formed and all the amazing experiences we got to make with the knowledge that it will soon be over and we will have to leave.
    Anyway I'm immensely grateful for everything and everyone that has happened to me during this year and I'm so lucky to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. 💕

    Blue Hole Picnic

    November 20, 2016 in Australia

    Another fun trip with some of the boarders to the Blue Hole for a picnic and some swimming. 💕
    The weather was stunning and a lot of girls went for a swim while Sophie and I sat on the rocks and enjoyed the sun.
    When it was time to go back Soph decided to be a mermaid (involuntary) and went for a dip in the water. She very gracefully slipped and landed there but at least it was warm and it was definitely very funny. 💕Read more

    Costumes, Cleaning and heaps of fun

    April 7, 2017 in Australia

    Who would've thought cleaning and tidying up could be so much fun?
    The drama department finally found a key for one of their store rooms and of course that one looked like an absolute mess.
    One day before we left for the holidays we started cleaning and throwing things out because most of the things in there were ready for the bin (we even found mummified lemons).
    Some of the costumes were still wearable though and we had heaps of fun dressing up in all the crazy ways
    possible. And of course we took pictures of our favourite creations. 💕

    ESC Sleepover

    May 13, 2017 in Australia

    What do you do when you really want to watch the Eurovision Song Contest but you are in Australia and it starts at 5am and your TV doesn't really work?
    You have a sleepover in Dickens House (empty boarding house) and just put three mattresses right in front of the TV so you only have to open your eyes and turn the TV on at 4:59am the next day.
    We also ordered pizza that day and made an extraordinary desert consisting of chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows, caramel, peanuts, cookie dough and pretzels. 💕
    We ate and watched some DVDs before we set our alarms and went to sleep.
    The next morning we had lots of fun watching the ESC even though it was yet again a huge fail for Germany.

    Gappies 2016/2017

    May 19, 2017 in Australia

    As our time here will soon come to an end, our school decided to take some pictures of us to put into the school magazine as well as the local newspaper. 💕
    I really like how they turned out and they are a great memory.
    Heather our lovely mentor had to be in some of them as she organised everything for us and guided us through our year. 💕

    Athletics Carnival

    May 26, 2017 in Australia

    Our schools athletics carnival was held on the 26th of May and even my little ones were invited to join.
    We got to do some marching with the whole junior school as an opening for the carnival and it was lots of fun as always. 💕
    Transition also got to participate in a little sprint which they all mastered brilliantly.
    The big girls dressed up to support the house they are in and Georgie was dressed up as well since both of her sisters are in Green.
    It was a nice day and active day for everyone. 💕

    Tour de St. John's

    June 8, 2017 in Australia

    No matter if on a scooter, a balance bike, a bike with or without training wheels everyone of our kids gave their best in the Tour de St. John's. 💕
    Our little ones got to ride inside the tennis courts while the older students rode around the turning circle.
    They each got a mark on their hand for every lap they did and none of them were going to give up so they all kept going until we had to finish it up because it was lunch time.
    We and they were all really proud of their achievements and the good sportsmanship they showed that day. 💕
