    Ich hab' ein Auto!

    January 2, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    ▪️Elisa und Lynn sind nach ca. 3h wieder zurück ins Habitat, da ihr Auto bis Freitag in der Werkstatt bleiben muss
    ▪️Sie haben einen Sicherheitscheck nach 10.000km machen lassen und es muss repariert werden
    ▪️ Habitatianer finden das super, dass sie wieder da sind und 2 Nächte länger bleiben, aber traurig für ihr Auto und ihren Geldbeutel
    ▪️Bin mit Valentin und Elisa 40min nach Seaford zu verschiedenen Autohändlern gefahren
    ▪️Für mich waren die Autos zu teuer, aber Valentin wurde fündig und hat sich einen richtig coolen grünen Jeep Cherokee für 6.500 AU$ gekauft
    ▪️Den kann er erst am Freitag abholen, da sie es für ihn registrieren und den Roadworthy Check machen
    ▪️Auf dem Rückweg zum Habitat habe ich ES bei Marketplace entdeckt
    ▪️Einen Holden Commodore Wagon von 2004 mit diversem Camping Equipment, Matratze, Surfbrett und Angel für nur 2.500 AU$
    ▪️Habe mit den deutschen Jungs Max und Philipp sofort einen Termin um 20:30Uhr zur Testfahrt ausgemacht
    ▪️Alle haben sich für mich gefreut :D
    ▪️Sind zu 4. (Elisa, Lynn, Valentin und ich) nach Clayton gefahren, um das Gefährt genauer unter die Lupe zunehmen
    ▪️Es war einfach meins, das Schnorchelset ist in meiner Schuhgröße 42 :D
    ▪️ Trotzdem muss es vom Mechaniker durchgecheckt werden: der Motor macht beim Gas geben verrückte Geräusche, keine Ahnung wann der Keilriemen erneuert wurde, hält die Spur nicht (zieht nach rechts)
    ▪️Aber meine Berater haben es für gut befunden und es als wahres Schnäppchen eingestuft
    ▪️Ab zur Bank 2.500 AU$ in 50 AU$ Scheinen abgeholt und mit den Jungs zusammen die Registrierungs Unterlagen für Western Australia ausgefüllt
    ▪️Dann ging's mit "Henry" nach Hause :)

    💡Die Autos beim Autohändler sehen aus wie geleckt. Man findet keinen einzigen Dreckkrümel und der Motor ist auch immer blitzblank. Was sich auch zum Nachteil auswirken kann.

    Maddy's House - Frankston

    December 8, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Since our last visit, Maddy has bought a house in Frankston. It's quite far out of the city but by the bay so it gives us a new area of Melbourne to explore. We have also reunited with our trusty air bed however this time we have our own room and are not getting in the way on the lounge floor.

    After a week on the road we spent the morning doing some laundry before dropping the van back to Jucy in St Kilda. This took up the majority of the day as once we had dropped off the van, it was an hour and half back to Frankston on the tram and train. On the way back to Maddy's we grabbed some bits of dinner and had a chilled evening.

    Day 2 - Maddy's House

    December 9, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Maddy had a hen party today but she kindly left us her car so we could do a bit of exploring. We decided to head to Frankston to check out the beach. There was a tourist information place by the pier so we had a look in there for some inspiration of things to do over the next week.

    For dinner we cooked up a yummy curry and tucked in on the sofas for a rock and roll Saturday night watching some movies with a bottle of wine.Read more

    Day 3 - Maddy's House

    December 10, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    After a yummy breakfast we thought we'd check out Frankston's Sunday market this morning however it turned out to be more of a car boot sale. Not too much caught our eye however we did manage to buy Maddy a Father Christmas ornament.

    With the sun shining we thought it would be rude not to top up our tans so we grabbed our beach gear and headed back to Frankston beach. Blake picked up a leaflet for a place called The Beach Nook yesterday which sounded nice so we strolled along the beach and stopped off for a yummy smoothie before finding a spot to sunbathe. After a couple of hours we started to get a bit peckish so we went to Woolies and grabbed some supplies for lunch and dinner.

    When we got back we found a very hungover Maddy looking incredibly sorry for herself led on the sofa. For the rest of the day we joined Maddy on the sofa for movies and snacks, before we had a nice wholesome dinner of roast chicken, couscous and salad.

    Day 7 - Maddy's House

    December 14, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Today was a suuuper lazy day of catching up with the blog (we've had a couple of complaints) and generally relaxing before the rest of the family get here. I also started organising all the thousands of pictures and videos we have on the hard drive ready for making some sort of video when we get back.

    After making ourselves look human (around 4pm) and picking up Maddy from work we headed to 2 Brothers Brewery to meet Ingrid and Dan for some yummy food and drinks. We were also looking forward to a brewery tour but it was cancelled due to one of the brothers being sick. There was too much choice on the menu so we started with a giant board of cheese, meats, breads and olives before a main of pizzas, tacos, and pulled pork sliders. It's probably the last time we will see Ingrid and Dan so it was great to catch up with them again. Ingrid even bought us a farewell card and gift which was super cute of her. We are sure going to miss those weirdos.

    Frankston Stadt

    September 29, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute waren wir Babysitter von Stephan. Der kleine hält einen echt auf Trab 😀
    Nach userem täglichen Spaziergang hat uns Jasna die Umgebung gezeigt. Speziell der Strand war hier das Highlight, von dem man einen tollen Blick über den Horizont auf die Melbourne Skyline hat. 😊
