    January 10 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    From Sydney we went up the coast to Newcastle to relax a little bit. Actually we were looking for a nice campsite on a beach but all of them were sold out or crazy expensive because of the fires in the south and the summer school holidays. At the end we found some cheap Motels in Newcastle and explored the city and the beaches from there.

    Von Sydney ging es wieder ein Stück in Richtung Norden nach Newcastle. Hier wollten wir eigentlich eine Woche auf einem netten Campingplatz am Meer verbringen, aber durch die Buschfeuer im Süden und den Sommerferien sind nahezu alle Campingplätze ausgebucht oder unbezahlbar teuer. Nach einiger Suche haben wir zumindest noch ein paar Motels in Newcastle gefunden und konnten die Stadt von dort besichtigen. An einem der Tage hat uns allerdings auch hier der Qualm der Buschfeuer eingeholt... :(

    Evening Strolls Along the Beach

    November 22, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Decided to take a 'quick' walk along the beach this evening. 15 minutes from my cousin's place and just paste Mereweather beach there's a huge stretch of rocks that form hundreds of rock pools when the tide goes out. It got too dark for me to explore it properly but I got to see all sorts of amazing little critters (I've managed to snap the ones that don't move). I intend to explore further afield tomorrow if I can.
    On the way back I saw something a bit more creepy. Bats. Not just any bats. Bats the size of flipping terriers! They are huge and climb up and down the palm trees eating fruits with their massive claws! Tried to get some pictures but the neighbours were looking at me weird.
    I've relaxed enough now and want to do some more exploring so hopefully there will be more updates soon!

    February 11 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Wie ein kleines verschlafenes Kaff fühlt sich Newcastle für mich an. Doch nach ein wenig Recherche lerne ich, dass es die siebtgrößte Stadt Australiens ist. Und man muss sich mal vor Augen führen, dass dieses riesige Land nur 24,6 Mio Einwohner insgesamt hat.
    Der Memorial Walk gefällt mir richtig gut mit seine vielen Aussichtspunkten auf die Küste. Für surfbar befinde ich die Wellen für mich heute nicht. Und mit den 19,6 Grad Wassertemperatur muss ich mich nach 29 Grad in Lombok auch erstmal anfreunden.

    Nelsons Bay to Newcastle

    November 12 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We woke at Nelsons Bay. We done our stretching then Aoife and Rachel called me to fill me in on how Rachel got on with the medium.
    After we got in the sea for a quick swim. We dried off then decided to get eggs in a restaurant as our van life is coming to an end. Then we drove to Newcastle and drove to the Bogey hole as suggested by Pat. We got some drone fottage and then we were going to drive to the shops as it was quite overcast but we decided to get the van washed first so we drove to a place that could do it.
    We then drove to Westfield in Newcastle and had a look around for the evening and we both bought new books.
    We then drove to the area near the wharf where we parked when we were here the last time and slept there for the night. There was boy racers going around which was not ideal but they eventually stopped.
