Hitting the roadSeptember 16 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 17 °C
Punctual at 8 am we stand in front of the mechanic in Airlie Beach. We asked if they could check our cooling water tube, because we had to refill it after every 90 km yesterday.
Unfortunately, after one hour we knew, the tube isn’t broken, it’s probably the water pump & the costs to fix that are high. At least $800 (450€). 🤦🏽♀️
But we already know that we have to go to a mechanic in Brisbane anyway because of our broken tank item which has no name. Our plan now: to let it fix there. Maybe a bit risky, but as long as there is enough cooling water, nothing can happen to our engine.
So we decided to hit the road again and go further down.
During our drive we also got a rockfall on our windscreen.
I guess, we are haunted by bad luck.
After three stops to refill the cooling water, one $5 pizza at dominos, one instant cappuccino with coconut milk and 311 km of driving, we arrived on our free camping ground somewhere between Clairview and Marlborough.
Now it’s time for Netflix and Lindt chocolate (😍🤤) in our car!Read more
