    Guten Morgen euch in der

    December 23, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Nach einer Jetlag Nacht sind wir bereits wieder um 5 am hell wach gewesen😉🤩😂.
    Nach dem Morgenessen sind wir dann unser Neues Zuhause abholen gegangen, und haben das Zuhause neu eingerichtet, welches einen Aufwand von ca 2 std beinhaltete.
    Kurz vor der Abfahrt habe ich nochmals alles kontrolliert und bemerkte dabei dass das Powerkabel fehlte🙈🙈😜.

    So nun war einkaufen für die Festtage angesagt, bei ersten Zenter hatten wir nicht einmal einen Parkplatz gefunden, verschwiegen dann für solch eine grösse🙈🙉
    Darum haben wir uns entschlossen aus der Vorstadt rauszufahren und was auf dem Weg zu suchen.
    Aber das rausfahren hat mich zuerst voll verarscht, uns somit landete ich wieder beim Flughafen.
    Die Strassen in den Vororten sind zum Teil 4-6 Spurrig, und die Abfahrten auf den Highways haben die zum Teil rechts Abfahrten beim Linksverkehr🤔🤔🤔🤔. Also wenn dir das Navi sagt in 200m nach rechts und du auf der äustersten Linkenspur bist..... kommt das nicht gut😂😂
    Somit machte ich 2-3 Versuche bis ich auf dem richtigen Highway war🤪🤪🤪

    Nun konnten wir unsere Einkäufe in einen Vorort vor dem Vorort tätigen, diese braucht knapp 2 Std😉😜😂 und kostet knapp 500 $🙈🙈
    Das Mobil vollgepackt machten wir uns auf den Weg nach Beachmere auf eine kleinen Einheimischen Campingplatz, welcher wir bereits von Zuhause gebucht haben.
    Hier bleiben wir über die Festtage bis am 27.12.19

    Wetter Top bei 32 C😜🥳😎🤣🤣

    Noch was DER DONCHO

    December 26, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    Kennst ihr das wenn ihr am Strand sitzt, die Sonne ist untergegangen und es wird langsam Zeit nach Hause zu gehen? Du steckst aber immer noch im Bikini oder in deiner Badehose. Weit und breit keine Umkleidekabine, ja nicht ein mal ein Busch oder Baum in Sicht. Wie nur umziehen, ohne dass du Blicke auf dich ziehst oder peinlich rumhampelst? Genau: DONCHO der PONCHO. Schnell übergestreift und schon ist dein Problem gelöst. Sei es am Strand, in der Badi oder in öffentlichen Duschen

    Da könnt ihr diesen gerne bestellen, ist eine Kollegin von uns

    Der ist echt gut für alles,Susanne braucht diesen um nicht alle Kleider zum Duschen mitzunehmen, einfach dieser anziehen, Duschen gehen und wieder zurück in den Camper um die neuen Kleider anzuziehen👍👍 einfach genial👏👏

    Weihnatstag

    December 25, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Nach einer Regenreichen Nacht🤪🤣 und Feststellung das unser Camper nicht ganz dicht ist, obwohl er neu ist🙈😂😂.,genießen wir den Heutigen Tag mit einfach nichts tun😛😴🥂, denn es Regnet immer wieder für kurze Zeit.
    Gemäß einem Kollegen, welcher gerade in Sydney ist, hat es auch dort Gestern"ein wenig" geregnet, aber nicht so wie bei uns.

    Wenn die 🇦🇺🐨 feststellen, dass es immer dort Regnet wo wir gerade sind, werden wir sicherlich gleich eingebürgert😜😂😂.

    PS:@Verena, der Kappenmann hat ein einsehen, und brachte uns Honig😂😂🙈

    Bribie Island

    March 11, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Monday 11th March, the day that the next part of our big adventure begins!!!! After taking the girls to school we set to loading the car and trailer ready for our 4 and a half week road trip up the east coast of Australia. We had to wait before we could set off as we were heading for a campsite on Bribie Island which entailed driving along the beach and for that we had to wait for low tide. When we reached the car park before the drive along the sand we were pleased to see that there were plenty other people there about to do the same as us. Alan let down the tyres to the required pressure for driving along sand, and then spoke to a group of Ozzie men who were also about to set off. Having told them that this was our first attempt at driving on sand they very kindly offered to help us if necessary. Alan was brilliant at driving over the bumpy ground on the track leading to the beach and kept momentum going so that we didn't ground - until we hit the main beach!!! Then we ground to a halt stuck in the sand. Thankfully the group Alan had chatted to arrived soon after and set to in towing us out of the ruts. The 16kms along the beach was fairly easy driving as the sand was hard, but was not helped by the thunderstorm that accompanied us. Terrific flashes of lightning right overhead and torrential rain. Thankfully it all petered out by the time we reached our camping pitch, which we had booked and paid for in advance. Our faces fell when we saw the approach to the pitch, up a slight incline with no clearly defined track. We noticed the experienced group who had helped us having real difficulty reaching their pitch, which did not fill us with confidence. Alan tried several times and did a really good job, but it soon became apparent that we were not going to reach the pitch. Apparently the recent cyclone had redistributed sand, making it much harder to reach the bush at the top of the beach. We decided to cut our losses and head for a campsite. The drive back along the beach was great with kangaroos hopping about in the bush. On the ride along the track back to the car park we became well and truly stuck in the sand. We didn't have to wait long before someone arrived and offered to help us out. People here are all so friendly and willing to help and share their experience. We were towed back to the car park, from where we headed to the nearest garage to inflate the tyres again. By now it was late afternoon, and we were beginning to worry that we wouldn't get the tent up before dark!!!! The first campsite we went to did not have a big enough space for our trailer, so we ended up at the Big 4 site on the other side of the bridge to Bribie Island. We managed to put up the first part of the trailer before darkness fell, but decided to leave the rest until the next day. We cooked on our new stove using our camping lanterns to light the area, and enjoyed several cool beers and a glass of wine, beautifully chilled!!!! Not a great start to our camping adventure- but it will get better!!!!
    The camp site we were on was fabulous - part of a hotel group and the swimming pool area superb. We decided to stay an additional two nights to make the most of it and to set up more of the tent.
    We had two more stinking hot days - on the first one after our exertions with the tent we spent the afternoon lazing by the pool reading our books with an occasional swim. On the second we returned to Bribie beach in the morning to enjoy the peaceful beach and try our hand at fishing. Great fun but no catch. The afternoon was a repeat of the day before

    Brisbane

    January 12, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Chilling day back at J and R's.
    Stew, Em and co left for UK first thing, then we took Kirsty into the airport for her flight to WA. Had time to check out some UGG boots for Claire in the city centre.
    We looked after the girls for three days whilst J and R went back to work, which was great fun for us, if a little tiring. We checked out some camping equipment stores for our plan to buy some gear over here and the girls loved examining the details of the tents etc. We took Sophie and Samantha to a local beach, the lagoon at Redcliffe, one of the many parks around Brisbane and to the cinema to see the latest Mary Poppins film. All great fun, and the girls were so well behaved. Weather extremely hot and sticky, but thankfully Jamie and Renee's house has air con as well as fans in every room. We made good use of them!!!!
    The girls love eating sushi and showed us their skills at making it.

    Brisbane

    February 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    After a brilliant trip to South Island New Zealand we have returned to Brisbane . The Canterbury Crusaders rugby union team were on the flight as they are playing one of their Super 15 games against the Brisbane Reds this weekend. There were some very big men on the flight. Jamie met us at the airport. It was good to see him, Renee and the girls again.
    We have spent a week and a bit in Brisbane performing two main functions. The first being Granny and Grandpa to our two beautiful grand daughters. Renee and Jamie took the opportunity of our presence to book a restful Spa trip to a retreat in Bali for a few days. Schools runs and after school entertainment has been the routine, although Sammy was off School for three days due to a mild case of chicken pox (they vaccinate here which has obviously reduced the impact.) The other activity was to collect our new camping gear from the manufacturer which we did on Monday 4th. Since then we have been finishing buying the various other bits necessary and preparing ourselves for a trip northwards along the coast starting on Monday.
    To summarise the week
    Crusaders beat the Reds.
    Great BBQ at home by J and R
    We entertained Renee's parents on Sunday - nice afternoon.
    Lots of games with Sophie and Samantha. (Granny is getting good at dodge ball.) Some Snakes and Ladders games can last for an eternity, high fives, etc etc)
    Excitement with new camping gear and planning the next part of the trip.
    School run, trip to doctors.
    Home made Sushi - well done girls and we honestly thought it would be impossible to eat that much.
    Trips to shopping outlets (bought the obligatory fishing rods to complete camping equipment)
    Gymnastics club for Sophie and swimming for Samantha
    Friday "At Home" film night we watched "Gnome Alone" surely the product of a deranged mind.
    Trip to Flipout (trampoline warehouse.)
    Walk along the promenade at Sandgate, Fish and chips at Dougs (excellent.)
    Trip to a new BMX cycle track -brilliant facility for cyclists, scooters and skateboards - Sophie greatly enjoyed the tracks, Samantha ran along beside.
