    Sjakie

    December 13, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 37 °C

    Een beetje zielig verhaal dit :
    Sjakie werd, toen hij nog maar een paar weken oud was, al door zijn vriendjes voorbij geschoten als zij vliegen probeerden te vangen. In de loop tikten ze hem dan met hun staarten op zijn rug...Sjakie merkte dat hij niet zoals zij tegen muren kon oplopen, en gewoon in alles veel langzamer is.
    Naarmate hij groeide en groeide, en alleen maar trager werd, vertelde zijn moeder dat hij helemaal geen vliegen hoefde te vangen, omdat hij vegetarisch was, dus ook niet hoefde te klimmen , en die staart helemaal niet nodig had...
    Verder zei ze, jij hoeft ook niet zoals die staartigen op allerlei vrouwtjes te jagen, als de tijd daar rijp voor is, vind je een vrouwtje waar je je hele leven bij blijft.
    Dus nu ligt Sjakie hier s’morgens in de zon op te warmen op de campsite. Het enige waar hij voor moet oppassen als hij zonneenergie aan het laden is zijn de banden van de 4WD’s van die travellers, want ja die letten niet goed op !!

    Dat vrouwtje dat wil dus maar niet komen, en ja Sjakie is geen held, al eens bijna overreden op de doorgaande weg, en overzwemmen op de rivier? Te sterke stroming ....

    Wat is de biologische benaming van Sjakie??
    ** sorry er worden geen prijzen verloot, dit is puur voor de eer**

    The heat is on !!

    December 13, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 37 °C

    Woensdag dus me schrap gezet voor de verwachte hitte, deze kwam dus inderdaad, maar eigenlijk goed uit te houden, met op het heetst van de dag (43graden) de combi rivier, schaduw en een pak van 5 kg crushed ice, deze in de waterzak in de koelbox gedaan, dus: 2 ijskoude biertjes, en een liter ijsthee!!
    Daarna opnieuw slaapplek bij de rivier, de föhnwind draait alle kanten op... t wordt windstil, de muggen komen met zijn allen....snel mijn tent in !
    Donderdagochtend blijkt t heel erg afgekoeld , als ik s morgens wakker word is het : fleecetrui aan!, ik ga lekker vroeg op pad naar Broken Hill.

    Home Sweet Home

    April 29, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Well we have arrived back on home territory again and it’s good to be home. Going through the airport in Croatia was a breeze compared to Russia. We shot through check in, security, customs etc in about half an hour max and had plenty of time to sit down to breakfast. Our cases were all a bit fatter with the extra souvenirs, cheese etc we had brought back with us.

    Heidi was still excited to be going on another plane! Eli managed to score an empty row which he and Heidi sat in as it was the front row so they had more room. I enjoyed the luxury of being able to sit and read or sleep without having to entertain a toddler! This flight to Qatar was 5 1/2 hours or thereabouts so not too bad.

    In Qatar we had some lunch and then took Heidi to the playground to wear off some of her abounding energy! She spent the next hour and a half playing there while we took turns to go walking.

    The next flight was the big one - 12 hours or so. We again managed to get a row for me and Heidi and Eli had a spare row this time so he could sleep. I had a couple of people try and sit in my row (it wasn’t their assigned seat) and had to politely tell them we had requested a spare row (they had actually changed our seat tickets to accommodate).

    Heidi wet herself again 🤦‍♀️ she had done it on the last flight when sitting with Eli and we had changed her into the only spare clothes I had packed. We’ve had no accidents the entire holiday until now! She was watching something both times and we think she wasn’t concentrating or something. So I had to hope her jeans would dry by the end of the flight - ugh!

    We had a few things to declare when we arrived in Adelaide - cheese, wooden articles, honey. We lost the honey cos it was creamed (it needs to be runny so they can see any debris apparently) and one of the cheeses we had opened while we were away and wrapped in alfoil and we lost that too. Then as we had been walking around fresh water lakes and wilderness areas they washed the shoes we had been wearing. They were all so nice and friendly though - it was a nice change!

    Grandpa, Grandma and Mum came to pick us up at the airport. We gave Heidi a quick bath back at their place and then hit the road back to Mildura. Heidi was excited at the prospect of seeing kangaroos again as she would ask when we were away - ‘where are the roos?’ 😂

    It was a great holiday and we made lots of fun memories!

    Mildura

    December 6, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    We stayed at the Sunraysia CP as temperatures were expected to hit 40 plus for next few days. It was a very unusual setup for a caravan park. We did a cruise down the river on a paddle steamer through lock 11. A drive out to Red Cliffs and on the way back we stopped at a fruit stall and bought some lovely fresh fruit. On our last night we enjoyed an awesome sunset.Read more
