    Kao Soi Gai

    February 16, 2017 in Australia

    Kao Soi Gai is a must have North Thai chicken curry. Cooked KSG using this recipe (http://tinyurl.com/hvvbu7o) with slight modifications. First I cooked the curry using Thai Massaman curry paste. Then added lemon and coconut milk and reheated but not boil the curry (Coconut milk turns to oil when it's boiled and loses its taste, I think). I also pre boiled the chicken and discarded the liquid to remove some of the chicken fat. It was delicious.

    Wasserfall Watergully

    February 14 in Australia

    Da es in Adelaide nicht alt soviele Sehenswürdigkeiten gibt die im Interessensgebiet von uns liegen haben wir uns heute nochmal schlau gemacht und sind zu einem Wasserfall gefahren.

    Dort haben wir nach einer kurzen Fotosession auch nochmal ein paar Kilometer die Berge erkundet.

    Anschließend ging es zum Kensington Park an welchem wir das erste mal unseren Campingmaster ausprobierten.

    Ich finde es kann sich sehen lassen. 😊😍Read more

    How to hug a Koala

    January 15, 2017 in Australia

    Heute Morgen gab es ein reichhaltiges Frühstück mit höchstens 5 Stückchen Bacon. Im Anschluss haben wir uns die Innenstadt Adelaides angeschaut und sind danach in den Cleland Conservation Park gefahren. Dieser hat einen Tierpark, in dem wir einen Koala halten und knuddeln konnten. Die Koalas haben ein echt weiches Fell und riechen voll nach Eukalyptus 😊.
    Ansonsten leben dort viele Kängurus, Dingos, Wallabies und viele andere australische Tierarten. In der Gegend wachsen auch sehr viele Eukalyptusbäume.Read more

    Arise of Tassiezone

    February 7, 2017 in Australia

    Today I posted an add on Facebook that I was looking for a travel mate. Within a few hours I found someone! Haha that was really quickly. And she had almost thesame plans and dates.

    Unfortunately a few hours later I had a lot of reactions from other people who wanted to travel with Me. Some where already with 2 persons. It can be really annoying if you travel with someone random you are together for almost 2 weeks so it could be that you gonna hate something on eachother. And when you are traveling with a group you just gonna hang out with someone else.

    So I thought, maybe if we have a few persons together we can travel with a group. But I'll see for now how many reactions I get. Unfortunately I got a lot more reactions.

    So I decided to make a group with all the people I know wanna travel at thesame time.

    You probably would be thinking, why tazziezone? Well I'll probably not be able to go to campzone. So why not make our own variant of campzone. And tassie is short for tasmania. So tassiezone! Currently I just feel like y'tje (yvan) from campzone! He didn't choose to be our hero but most people chose him :-P y'tje is definitely my hero! I really like his spicy nuts!

    So I try to be the hero of this group and hopefully I Learn a lot! Also a few bad habits I gonna introduce on this group. One is the beer count system, who yells one gets the beer and he get the amount of beer that's called. Second thing is perudo.. OMG Really! Yeah really. BEST GAME EVER!

    Currently I got 8 people together. And I'm the only one with a car. Hopefully it fits :-P.

    Chill @ woodcroft! and stress @ adelaide

    February 9, 2017 in Australia

    Monday was a chill day and I stayed the whole day @ Joll. Watched a few movies and downloaded a lot of new ones. I enjoyed the time over here! Just like friends in Netherlands!.

    Tuesday I went to get my Dutch simcard, finally I got a new one after 3 months. Slow ozzies here. I also went to a mechanic to make an appointment to check my car for rego. It's real 'easy' here in Australia because every state is like another country in Europe. So imagine to do apk and register your gar in Germany for a dutch license plate. That's like insane. And that's exactly what I have to do here.

    After a half day calling and searching I know what my opinions are.

    Car is registered in nsw. To renew for nsw I need to do the following things.
    1. Get CTP insurance ($610)
    2. Check your car at an registered mechanic, in nsw($38) or Sa ($120) or VIC ($180)
    3. register online for new rego ($512) with road tax

    I need to do this before 26 Feb 2017. And I'm not gonna be in nsw that time, nearest is around 350km from border. So it would cost me around $100 for fuel to drive to one in nsw.

    Best would be 610+120+512= $1242 for 12 months

    If I transfer my registration to SA I would pay for rego, CTP insurance and road tax around $800.

    Thats a lot cheaper and I get new plates. But I have to sell my car in Sa if I leave Australia. And I wanna sell my car in nsw because that's my last location.

    So I think it's best to just pay more and hope to get more for my car in Sydney when I'm selling it..

    After this day I think that I know more about vehicle registration than most Australian do (including mechanics). Pretty insane right!

    Well wensday a vehicle check and a/c check. And then back to the farm to do another few days.

    At the end of the day I climbed to mount lofty, you can see all of adelaide from the peak. It took me 1:45 to go up and down. Total track was 8km and some pieces pretty steep. So not to bad while I haven't hiked for a long time. But it was really good, I needed the physical workout!

    Today I had the check and it doesn't look that good. A/c Compressor is broken, don't need to fix it for rego. Front Brake discs and pads have to be replaced, need 3 new tires and new Cilinders for brakes back. Those 3 things would cost me 1500 over there. That's way to much! So I looked first for another car. But yeah now I need to pay around 1500 a 2000 to fix my car. But then I don't need to do anything anymore. And to get another car I maybe spend 1000 a 2000 so. Maybe better to keep my car.

    I called my friend mohamad in Sydney if he could help me. He said I could fix my own car in his workshop and get a bit of help. Everything will cost me now probably around 1000 and that's including fixing the airco. So thats a lot better.

    So after my OTR trip I'll be heading to Sydney for a short week and then go back to Melbourne.

    Adelaide, Cleland Wildlife Park

    November 19, 2016 in Australia

    Roadtrip von Melbourne nach Adelaide
    8.Adelaide, Cleland Wildlife Park

    Der Besuch im Cleland Wildlife Park hat sich wirklich gelohnt. Anders als sonst darf man hier fast alle Tiere anfassen und auch Füttern (Futter 3$). Echt cool einmal Emus anzufassen, auch wenn es eine wirkliche Überwindung ist!
    Man hat auch die Möglichkeit einen Koala für 30$ extra zu halten. Das haben wir aber ausgelassen, da wir schon bekanntschaft mit Koalas geschlossen haben (siehe Unten).

    Eintritt: 25$ pro Erwachsenen
