    Rainbow Beach

    November 12 in Australia

    Der Rainbow Beach ist eigentlich für seine schimmernden Dünen bekannt, wovon wir leider nichts sehen konnten. 🌈 Trotz allem ist die Küste dort wunderschön und auch die verwehten Sanddünen haben uns sehr gut gefallen. 🏝🌊

    Zand & dolphins

    November 9, 2017 in Australia

    In Rainbow Beach bleek dat je daar eigenlijk een 4WD nodig had. We hebben flink getinderd om deze te fiksen, inclusief bestuurder(s), maar helaas vonden we deze een dag te laat. Toen zijn we maar op eigen houtje naar Carlo Sand Blow gegaan, wat krek de Bedaf war en waar het aan sand surfing niet ontbrak.

    Vervolgens moesten we tyfus vroeg op om met een kop koffie in de hand naar de voedertijd van wilde dolfijnen te kijken in Tin Can Bay. Hebben we ons best mee vermaakt.Read more

    Rainbow Beach

    January 8 in Australia

    Unser erster Stop heute war der Rainbow Beach🌈🏝 Die Wellen waren mega hoch und das Wasser viel wärmer als in Sydney oder in Melbourne 😂🌊 Wenn man nach links und nach rechts geschaut hat, konnte man nur Sonne, Sand und das Meer sehen👍🏼
    Danach haben wir uns auf den Weg nach Bundaberg aufgemacht.. 3 Stunden Autofahrt🙄🚗
    Auf dem Weg haben wir auch das erste Mal getankt.. Der Liter Benzin für umgerechnet 84 Cent😂👍🏼
    Jetzt sind wir gerade in Bundaberg in einem Mc Donald, um das kostenlose WLAN auszunutzen, damit wir unsere Reise weiterplanen können😂 Ich denke wir werden heute auf einem Campingplatz in der Nähe von Bundaberg schlafen und dann sehen wie es weitergeht👍🏼

    Rainbow beach QSLND

    December 23, 2016 in Australia

    Roadtrip Aus style... after intensive packing we headed North of Brisbane to the Sunshine coast. We had some Tim Tams for the road ... and was hopeful to get some Billas @ Gympie but apparently the place closed down.

    Unpacked settled in, zooshed up some broccoli slaai & mac & cheese (all R 's favourites) , entertained the kids for a bit and finally I wondered to the beach, while giving my mom a call. It is much closer than expected - good to meet the waves once again - I didn't even reach my goal for the day.

    The Highlight of my day was to share stories and perspectives with my mom. It's pretty sweet (like the Aussies say) to just buy a sim -firstworldcountry travel - vodafone - be connected and not broke.

    And now some wine time...

    Christmas eve

    December 24, 2016 in Australia

    As we remember the biggest gift we received from God when Jesus was born to be our Lord and Savior; we exchanged gifts to celebrate this gift.

    John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

    As per usual Isabel is almost more excited about the gift than most of the kids.

    Alyssa took the prize for the most excited gift receiver, Connor a close second for the jelly snakes- a true hit, while Cooper and James could not care less.

    Really an awesome time to be around children as they really enjoy Christmas so much more than grownups do.

    Beach fun

    December 27, 2016 in Australia

    We spend the afternoon on the beach, I taught Alyssa and Connor how to do star jumps over the waves while Roedolf finished the final touches of the gigantic sand castle. The kids helped to build the sandcastle but at some point it became more fun breaking it down, so I distracted them.

    Carlo Sand blow

    December 28, 2016 in Australia

    This natural phenomenon at rainbow beach see the wind blow sand through the cliffs to create a beach away from the ocean.

    Carlo Sand Blow was named by Captain Cook after one of his deck crew named Carlo. The unique "moonscape" sand mass covers over 15 hectares and overlooks the towering coloured sands.

    A short little track from the town gets you to this beautiful scenic vantage point, ideal at sunrise or sunset.

    While the parents was going through the bathing and putting kids to bed rituals we took the opportunity for some alone QT.

    Agnes Water

    October 6, 2017 in Australia

    After a terrible nights sleep in the bus being woken up with lights and an announcement every time the bus stopped, we finally made it to Agnes water around 6.15am. We hopped on the hostel minibus and made our way with a few others to the 1770 Southern Cross hostel.

    We had a short wait for reception to open but when it did we were able to eat breakfast and check in which was good. After some toast and a shower we began to feel slightly human again. I don't think I had more than the clean clothes on my back left (and they weren't particularly clean) so we headed straight to town to find the laundromat and supermarket. By the time the next bus came to pick us up it was lunchtime so we fixed up some food before the tiredness hit us and hit us it did. We booked a super exciting activity for the afternoon called Scooter Roo but before we went anywhere we decided to have a nap.

    The alarm went off and it took us both a little while to shake off the grogginess but it was Scooter Roo time! Scooter Roo was a 3 hour motorbike ride on 50cc motorbikes that looked like American style choppers. We were kitted out with our flame leather jackets and helmets before making our way over to the practice track. It was quite a tight circular track with a chopper style bike but after a few laps we both gained our confidence. Blake had to do quite a few extra practice laps as never having ridden a bike before, it took a little longer to sink in. With only one crash into the barrier under her belt and someone getting on the back of her bike to demonstrate leaning, we were ready to ride!

    There were around 20 of us in total and we all headed out of the gate in single file. I felt like I was in an episode of Sons of Anarchy. After negotiating some turns and a couple of hills where we had to hit it full throttle to reach the top we eventually made it to a road where we saw our first kangaroo and there were LOADS! We even saw one effortlessly jump over a fence to avoid us. After around two hours of riding we stopped at the harbour of 1770 for some preordered potato wedges which by that time were well needed. We let the food go down, had a quick team photo and then made our way back to the hostel passing some more kangaroos en route. Blake even saw a snake in the road which she had to swerve so that she didn't run over it. It was an awesome tour and we both felt very badass in our leather jackets. Blake even enjoyed herself, after she got over her initial fear that she was going to die.

    Rainbow Beach

    October 8, 2017 in Australia

    Another early start and a 6 hour bus journey to Rainbow Beach. There really isn't much in Rainbow Beach at all but from here we can head out to Fraser Island. We are doing a 3 day, 2 night 4x4 tag a long tour. Basically what this is, is a bunch of 4x4's that follow each other with 8 people to a car and we all take it in turns driving. Fraser Island or K'gari, is a sand island 75 miles long and 15 miles wide. Driving on sand should make it interesting.

    Our tour is with Dingos and we are staying in the hostel of the same name. The bus dropped us right outside so we checked in and mooched around until our safety briefing at 5pm. During our safety briefing they told us how to stay safe on the island if you see a Dingo or snake and a little bit about what we can expect. We also met 4 of the other people that are going to be in our car (2 weren't there). We are an all English team so very cultural. Everyone seems really nice so I think it's going to be a good crack. We have Jess and Meg and Sam and Fraser (we also have incredibly English names).

    It's going to be another early start tomorrow as we have to be packed and ready to go by 7am.
