    Heading off.

    March 12 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    After a busy few weeks getting the camper trailer ready for this trip we are ready to depart. Final departure time was just before 3pm. Our rough plan is to head to Boynedale bush camp for the night, rather than the previously planned Wongi waterholes camp.

    Originally this trip was going to be a quick run via Brisbane to visit relatives in Canberra. Simple and easy? Well Canberra is not actually far from Melbourne, and we also have relatives. So an additional bit was extended in the end. Not too much extra, drive down, drive back after a visit.

    Might as well head back via the high country as that is not much longer.

    Soon we had an interesting trip planned for Brisbane, Melbourne, high country, Canberra and back home. This info passed on to camp Melbourne. Seems that the Melbourne crew felt they would like to have a week or so camping somewhere a couple of hours out. A place has been chosen and all the previous plans adjusted.

    We won't go to Melbourne now, and the high country is out for now. There's just the matter of fitting in a music festival at St Albans and a few days in Sydney to catch up with relatives there.

    Turns out the dates for Sydney coincide with a special deal in a van park near Narabeen. That happens to be close to where we want to be so that is now booked in. $144 for 4 nights is a great deal for us. One advantage of being able to travel in the off season now we are retired.

    Emu Park

    May 25, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    So gegen viertel nach 5 machte ich mich von meinem Hostel auf den Weg zu dem Pick- Up Point, von dem ich zur Bahn gebracht wurde. Dort lernte ich Jess kennen, die ebenfalls mit Loka zum dem Emu Park in der Nähe von Rockhampton fährt. Um 19.30 ging der Zug Richtung Rockhampton. Im Zug lernten wir unseren Tour Guide TK kennen. Auf Anhieb war die Stimmung super und wir drei hatten eine Menge zu Lachen. Irgendwann zwische 2 und 3 Uhr kamen wir in unserem Hostel an. Jess und ich hatten ein Zimmer alleine. 😊 Am nächsten Morgen hieß es erst mal ausschlafen und dann ging es an den Pool.Read more

    Laving home a bit after 10am.

    January 6, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Christmas is well behind us now. Last minute stuff to be done... When you are off on a trip there is so much to be done before you leave. Turning off all the power points, making sure things to be left on are not turned off. It has been a hectic week but we finally headed off. The road is our home for a while now.

    Some of this trip will be posted as public, however if you are a friend and would like to be able to see all my posts, you will need to join Find Penguins and request to follow me. It's very simple and free. The site is

    Crows Nest

    May 8, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Around 30 kilometres from Toowoomba is this small town. The van park is a good spot to stop for a couple of days so we can spend a day in Toowoomba.

    We did not book as this should be a quiet little town. Imagine our surprise when we fold it packed out. There was a huge group gathered here for the weekend! Fortunately we did not require power and were able to setup camp in a small area.Read more

    Market, War Memorial & Singing Ship

    November 4, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Today we headed into Yeppoon and its’ monthly market as well as the tourist information Centre for some local maps. Along the way we stopped at some of the pretty beaches and marina.

    After eating a picnic lunch in the park next to the market we drove back to our caravan park where we both had a swim and a rest.

    Later in the afternoon we went for a drive south to Emu Park to pick up a few supplies at the supermarket and to see the amazing ANZAC war memorial tribute on the foreshore.

    The tribute includes a ‘singing ship’ where the prevailing winds sounds like singing as they pass through the rotating wind pipes. The ship leads to an ANZAC memorial board walk where one side is sea and the other has tin sculptures of soldiers as they hiked through the unforgiving landscapes, culminating in a picture story shed telling the history of our ANZAC soldiers. We were lucky to be there at dusk to see the beginning of the sunset as it somehow made the memorial feel even more fitting.

    Back to the caravan park to make an easy dinner of roast chicken (thanks Drakes supermarket!) and time to unwind...

    On our way!

    July 29 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Getting ready for this trip seems to have been more effort than other trips. There was quite a lot to be done after the Palm Creek trip and everything seemed to take longer. We were finally all ready to roll at 12:00 noon.

    A small glitch though. I pressed the switch on the spot tracker and nothing. Hoping it only flat batteries. Since it has to use lithium batteries we will have to detour past Bunnings to pick some up.Read more
