    Two weeks later

    August 12, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Lessons from two weeks as au pairs: I'm not having kids any time soon! And I'm definitely not having twins. They are cute when not trying to get their way with wathever, but that is a rare thing in this home.
    We are helping out with house and garden and two 1½ year olds a bit off the city centre. It has it's moments, but it's not easy.
    Once we shortly got to see the city for some job search, and once we had a coffee in Fremantle which is for sure a suburb to check out! Just next to us is Perth Hills, which is a small national park with a beautiful view of the city, and the car does not like to go up to the house. I'm looking forward to get to know Perth and those nice shops we quickly passed by the other day.
    Job search and visa frustrations are peaking (or so I hope), but somehow we'll get by. Hopefully it'll be soon we can move on to next stage. To our own projects.

    Where the grass is greener

    August 23, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Just like that life changed. It's been a few crazy rainy days, the hills around us burned one day, and most mornings we've done some hard work in garden when the kids were not around. A few days ago a Polish couple came, so now the house is full. Last night we took full adavantage of that and dressed up. Letting someone else take the kids the next morning!
    In a very fancy fish restaurant in Perth we had a great night out, didn't fit in to that place at all, but had a lot of fun. At night we were back in google streetview searching for a place to sleep, stopped by a river in the national park, put up the curtains, turned on the lights in the back of the van, put the phone under the pillow, bumped our heads together multiple times when crawling back. No internet, no people, just the sound of frogs and water running. Back home. And then struggling with those fancy shoes where we used to just throw the flip flops ...

    Reality caught up on us. We woke up in a forrest with a beautiful light from behind a lake and kangaroos jumping around us as we left the campsite before the rangers arrived. Had brekkie in the woods and lunch on the beach, creative cooking under sunshine and blue skyes to empty the food storage.
    And then a too warm city drive, a shopping mall, a nice house, an amazing kitchen, and a warm shower. We really left the road this time.

    Arrived in Perth to visit Matt and Chloe.
    Finally got to see the campervan we purchased back in November! It's a Toyota Hi Ace with a Jackpot camper fitout. Very pleased with the van.
    We had to make a few purchases for the campervan including a bullbar and got a safety check and service ready to take off on our adventure home.Read more

    Ankunft nach 23h Reise und 6h Zeitverschiebung ist es jetzt 22.00 Uhr. Mit dem Uber Taxi geht's zum Airbnb welches für diese Nacht gebucht ist.
    Leider ist der Vermieter noch nicht da, wieder ist warten angesagt... Das Haus ist gross und sauber, interessant ist aber eigentlich nur das Bett um endlich schlafen zu können.Read more
