    Lochiel

    April 28 in Australia

    In the morning we hired bikes in the city center and explored the surrounding parks and buildings. We also went to the main shopping mall and checked out the stores there. Then we booked a tour at Haigh's Chocolate Factory where we got to see the process of making chocolate by hand. One of the early owners of the still family-run business went to Lindt-Sprüngli in Switzerland for a year to learn the art of chocolate making. Of course we also got some chocolate to taste :)
    Somewhen during the day I lost the car keys, so we spent about two hours re-tracing our steps but without success. Luckily we had a spare key so we could continue our travel northwards but we missed going to the Aussie rules football match...

    Adelaide

    February 24 in Australia

    We just spent 2 nights at a caravan park in Adelaide, right on the beach - the forecast was for 38 degrees yesterday so we thought it best to be close to water! It was 31 degrees at 8am yesterday and we had our hottest night in the van the night before, we think it was around 30 degrees all night... we have no fans 😬.
    Before that we spent 3 nights in Robe, and a friend from Coffs called me and said they are traveling Aust too - they were in Robe too!! We never see each other or follow each other on social media, she just remembered me saying we were going in November. We spent the afternoon at their caravan park, drinking beer ( I AM on a beer budget 😭) and her husband cooked fresh caught whiting and cray fish for dinner ( he caught it that day and they told him he'd get $200 at the fish market for the cray- I didn't eat the cray, whiting was enough!)
    Heading to Port Augusta and hopefully get past it today, the bloody school work was meant to be there but it's not so I'll have to ring around trying to find it again- the schoolwork is hard, there's a lot to get through and Mav mostly whinges the whole time 😬
    Picture is from yesterday, we had to have a cold shower a few times yesterday as we were melting and the sand was scorching hot!

    Clare Valley

    April 29, 2017 in Australia

    Stayed 2 nights at a free camp at Blyth Sports Ground, about 15 minutes west of Clare. No facilities apart from a dump point, but walking distance to town and we had the place to ourselves so very quiet.

    Loved the (not for profit) Sevenhill Winery. This was the first winery established in the Clare Valley by the Jesuits in 1851 to produce sacramental wine. Fantastic history associated with this winery, including St. Aloysius Church with the only crypt below an Australian parish church - the final resting place for 41 Jesuits, and the College building which was the first Catholic Secondary School in South Australia. Mary MacKillop lived in a cottage on the property for a couple of years whilst two of her brothers attended the college and Jesuit training.Read more

    Leaving Galwer for Marree, SA

    April 17 in Australia

    After 2 horrific days of replacing my 2 inch muffler to a 3 inch, snapping a stud off in the turbo, muffler not fitting up correctly and everything else that could go wrong went wrong. Finally on the road trying to make it to Parachilna on the western side of the Flinders Ranges National Park.
