  • Day84

    Darwin

    June 26, 2017 in Australia

    We have had four nights here after returning the campervan. We were surprised at the size of the city (120,000 people) complete with a couple of high rised buildings. The whole town was nearly wiped out after a cyclone in the 70's so has been re-built with a very recent renovation of the waterfront which we really enjoyed. It had a real feel of Singapore to us which would have been exemplified if we were here prior to the Cyclone Tracey. Took some time to relax at the waterfront, including a day at the wave swimming park and enjoying a firework display. It's Northern Territory day on July 1st, the only day people are allowed to buy and use fireworks so a company had a demonstration of all thefireworks that will be on sale! We were ready to get some rest before moving on, although it appears that Darwin is a bit of a party town with permanent party packers rather than transient back packers. The situation at our hostel was so bad that the police were called on two nights of the four we were there! Only on the last night did we sleep all the way through the night as they were to hung over to keep going and eventually the hostel put security on at 11pm.Read more

    Ankunft im Hostel

    September 9, 2016 in Australia

    Mit einem lachenden und einem weinenden Auge mussten wir Bali hinter uns lassen um uns dem eigentlichen Abenteuer, Australien, zu stellen.
    Und das, nachdem wir das beste Frühstück im Sacred Ground hatten! (Siehe die 2 Bilder unten)
    Ich wollte da noch die ganze Frühstückskarte durchprobieren, aber Meli konnte mich zügeln!

    Zwar sind wir dann reichlich gestärkt in Australien angekommen, aber manchen Eltern sollte der Fürsorge-Führerschein entzogen werden(Warum gibtsowas nicht?)... 20 mal zu seinem Kind zu sagen es soll doch bitte nicht kreischen (weil es ihm Spaß macht) und sonst nichts zu tun hat nichts gebracht - nur den Unmut der anderen Passagiere darüber verstärkt.

    Wie dem auch sei: der Shuttlebus brachte uns schnell zu unseren Frog's Hollow Hostel und wir konnten sogar noch in den Supermarkt um uns das erste gemeinsame Abendessen in Australien schmecken zu lassen: Sandwiches.

    Ok, ich weiß was einige von euch jetz denken, aber wir sparen halt für nen Campervan ...😆

  • Day8

    Darwin

    October 9, 2016 in Australia

    Nun beginnt unsere Reise.
    Es ist Samstag, der 8. Oktober um 7:30 Uhr.
    Die Haustüre wird abgeschlossen und unser Nachbar Jörg fährt uns zum Bahnhof.
    Mit Zwischenstopps in Frankfurt und Singapur sind bis zu unserer Ankunft im Hotel in Darwin 27 Stunden vergangen.
    Nach einem Stadtbummel und einem Bierchen an der Poolbar ging es noch ab ins kühle Nass. Über dem Pool zwischen den Palmen sahen wir Flughunde mit einer Spannweite von etwa 120 cm. Wir fühlten uns ein wenig wie im Jurassic-Park.Read more

    Melbourne to Darwin

    February 18 in Australia

    Off to Darwin for 2 days orientation. I'm staying at Travelodge Mirambeena Resort. Very nice. Hot humid but not too bad. Air conditioning in the room so very comfortable, even cold.
    I get in in the morning so chill in the afternoon
    Steve is now in in New Zealand on a hunt so our family is spread over 4 time zones now
