    • Day 178

      New sheds

      August 18, 2022 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

      Since I have been down in NSW in the shearing shed I went to two other sheds after the first one. It was really interesting to see how other people set their sheds up and how differently they process their wool.
      The second shed was much larger with 6 shearers and two tables to process the wool.
      Then the final shed was another much smaller older shed. We only had three shearers again and the one table.
      I really enjoyed it very interesting!!! Had a great caravan to stay in as well for the second week.

    • Day 25


      February 25, 2023 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

      Der Wecker klingelt heute morgen um 5 Uhr. Um 6 Uhr wollen wir nach Urella los. Stan der Farmer hat dort ein Meeting. Wir brauchen 3 Stunden mit dem Auto dort hin. Auf dem Weg machen wir noch einen Stopp um das Frühstück in der Natur zu genießen. Anschließend geht es weiter. Das Wetter ist spektakulär. Das Auto mit dem wir fahren würde in Deutschland aufjedenfall nicht auf der Straße fahren. Das fällt halb auseinander. Immerhin kommen wir heile von A nach B. Während Stan bei seinem Meeting ist. Fahren Evie, Claire und ich los. Wir wollen den Ort erkunden. Der Ort ist sehr schön. Ich finde den Trip sehr anstrengenden. Ich spreche so viel Englisch mit der kleinen und Claire. Um 14.30h geht es mit 2 kleinen Stopps zurück. Ein Stopp ist ein Eis und das andere ist ein Sandwich mit Tee. Alles natürlich in der Natur. Die gesamten 6 Stunden Fahrt begegnen wir max 3 Autos. Wahnsinn!! Kein Wunder bei den Straßen. An der Farm angekommen müssen wir uns mit den ganzen Tieren beeilen bevor es dunkel wird. Wir schaffen alles. Ich spiele noch etwas mit Evie. Dabei versuche ich ihr Handstand bei zu bringen. Stan macht auch mit. Anschließend tanzen mit Stan und Evie etwas vor. Das ist super lustig. Während des kochen hören wir etwas Musik. Das ist sehr ausgelassen. Wir fallen schwer erschöpft ins Bett:))Read more

    • Day 9


      July 15, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

      Our accommodation for the next two nights is the little town of Uralla in 'A Room with a View'...and they weren't kidding. Our beautiful cottage overlooks acres of land as well as being a marvel in itself - a large chalet with views a around, fully appointed kitchen, dining table, tv, huge bath and bed and a lovely veranda with a bbq...not a bad place to spend one's birthday! It is all heated by a very cosy wood burner which was roaring when we arrived...which given it for down to -7° last night we are very excited about!

      After checking in and grabbing some food, we headed into Uralla proper for a beer. This small, quaint, vaguely western/cowboy looking town has maybe 20 shops on one street including two pubs, a model aircraft shop, gun shop, sweet shop, brewery, winery, book shop, drive-thru off-licence and wool shop...We think we could live here and all our immediate friends and family be well catered for! (plus the next city over of Armidale has two fabulous-looking private schools!).

      The Top Pub (one of two in town, the other known at the Bottom Pub) served beer from the local brewery which we duly sampled from pumps encased in ice they were so cold. We also took the opportunity to puchase some local wine from the off-licence with a 50% success rate of "nice to drink" (although a 100% success rate of "we'll drink it anyway").

      Despite many people reminding us it'd be winter out here, the temperature has yet to really phase us. However, the light is another matter. At about 5pm every evening it almost instantaneously gets dark; that plus the temperature trip makes it feel like a brisk English winter...and having just conquered jetlag, dealing with season-lag is a whole other battle! However it does mean that each one of our stops so far has yielded the most unbelievable view of the skies - more stars than it would be possible to count and clear views of the milky way every night. The photos Ben had got with his camera are truly stunning.

    • Day 11

      Birthday in Uralla

      July 17, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

      Breakfast was included in our stay...and was huge! The bacon here comes in very long rashers, and in addition we had eggs, a freshly cooked loaf and Anzac biscuits...absolutely stuffed!

      As we had two nights in Uralla, we were able to spend my birthday on a more suburban adventure, beginning in the local city of Armidale. It seems almost everything here dates from from the 1880s and certainly all of the buildings look like a cross between victoriana and Red Dead Redemption! The town itself however was much like most towns and largely unexciting. A brief stop at the arboretum on the way out was a pleasant, if wintery, stop.

      Taking a 'tourist drive' back to Italia we discovered that just because something is demarcated as a main road does not mean it is sealed. We made slow progress to Uralla where we did some shopping and stopped for birthday cake and beers before heading up to Mount Mutton Lookout - a rather disappointing hilltop aerial surrounded by trees which made looking-out rather superfluous. Instead, we retreated and headed to the "fossicking" site near our cottage. We spent a little time pulling bits of gold out of the river bed but the water was so cold our fortune was cut short.

      We spent the evening over a homecooked curry and a bottle of bubbly from the vineyard on the same road that we were staying on. After days of nagging Ben to let me take a kangaroo home, he gave me a really lovely present of a silver kangaroo necklace 😊

    • Day 3


      March 30, 2022 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

      After staying at Deepwater last night we took the tourist road through Stannum, Torrington, Emmaville and Ashford where we had lunch at a beautiful free camp. Inverell was our next stop and then on to Bundarra where we free camped on the Gwydir River. Another beautiful spot and the rain stopped.

      The weather is not looking good for the whole trip south and it is quite chilly. Geoff has only brought with him his Queensland clothes.
