    Ewen Maddock Dam, The Ginger Factory ...

    November 8, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    Leaving the cafe we set off for a picnic lunch at a lake. A lovely spot and a lovely watermelon!

    After that we drove on to Yandina to visit a macadamia processing plant and also The Ginger Factory. Both were very touristy. I love macadamia nuts but they are pretty pricey in England. I hoped they would be cheaper here, but they weren’t. Just before we were leaving, we decided to sample their range of maybe 20 different flavour coatings on the nuts. The girl behind the counter told us to sample as many as we liked as she was going to throw them away when we left - it was 4:45 and they shut at 5. Jokingly I asked if she would just put them all int a bag and we’d take them with is .... which she did! Great result.

    We can see smoke ahead of us and smell wood fire. We haven’t heard anything yet.

    We pulled into the slightly less busy campsite to be told that there are bushfires north around Noosa and some campsites are closed so extra people are coming to this one, never mind. We have worked out that the van is so well insulated against the heat, it’s pretty good against noise.

    Hooked up like pros, red wine open, insect repellent on, life is good.

    Day 21

    January 24, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Wir verbringen den Tag in Noosa an der Sunshine Coast - und die wird ihrem Namen heute absolut gerecht. Wir fahren mit einer kleinen Fähre von Tewantin nach Noosa Heads über den Noosa River und später auch wieder zurück. Dabei drängt sich der Vergleich mit Miami Beach geradezu auf. Für uns gewinnt Noosa den Vergleich klar nach Punkten (was bestimmt auch von der aktuellen Urlaubsstimmung beeinflusst ist). In Noosa Heads angekommen, machen wir uns auf zum Hauptstrand. Nun wissen wir auch endlich, wo die Australier ihren Urlaub verbringen. In Australien sind gerade Sommerferien und bisher waren alle von uns besuchten Strände nahezu menschenleer. Hier ist es zwar deutlich belebter, aber trotzdem wieder typisch australisch komplett tiefenentspannt. "How are ya, Folks?". "G'Day!". Und natürlich keine Sandburgen!
    Am Laguna Lookout lassen wir den Tag nochmal an uns vorbeiziehen und fahren dann an der Sunshine Coast noch etwas weiter in Richtung Brisbane.

    Parents

    July 27, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Monday my parents arrived in Brisbane and stayed in a hotel. I had to work until Tuesday so I went wensday morning to pick them up. And we spend the whole day packing both cars for the trip. In the evening we made a fire and played some pool at home with my house mates. That was chilled.

    Thursday we really started to travel. Went to brisbane again to pickup my mom's suitcase. There went something wrong with the bagage of the flight.

    Also we had to get Grocerys and stuff. And drove all the way to caloundra so total around 250km today.

    It was funny that my mum and dad had a different idea of how they would travel. So see how it goes and how they like it after 2 weeks :-P
