one + four = life (heading home)

Can’t believe we’ve been travelling for over three months.  A bit of camping and a few nights in places found on Airbnb. Like this cute converted dairy in Brunswick. Mostly housesitting though. Just in case you wondered how we can afford to do it. Had to get in a walk along the beach on Phillip Island. […]

one + four = life (let it snow, let it snow, let it snow)

It’s not quite the end of winter but it looks like it’s the end of the snow season for us. We’re just about on our way back to Tassie. For our escape from the Tassie winter this year we seem to have spent a fair bit of time in places no warmer than home! Perfect […]

Don’t be mislead by the non-appearance of snow in this week’s photos. We’re definitely still in snow country. Snowboarding one day. Recuperating the next day, or two! Beautiful day for a mountain bike ride. There are some great trails in the Gippsland region. We’ve been out a couple of times now on the East Gippsland […]

Seems it’s been a particularly cold week across much of Australia. And I guess most people hadn’t deliberately planned to be cold, but we had! We had agreed to housesit for a month close to the Victorian snowfields so for us there was no avoiding the chill. Now this was not because we’re crazy. Well, […]

Our current housesitting gig is near Omeo in the Alpine area of Victoria. So much for escaping from a Tassie winter! Each day I am trying to do an outdoor activity in an effort to keep up our fitness despite the cold weather. We’ve been cycling, hiking and just plain old walking about. All this […]

On the road again heading through the country on the way to our next housesit. We stopped and visited family and friends on the way down the coast from Brisbane then headed inland from Sydney. There were a couple of cafes worth a mention on the way. A truly great find was Heart and Soul Wholefood […]

A quick visit to our old home town of Brisbane this week. Got to enjoy some beautiful warm weather and catch up with some good friends. I think winter is pretty perfect in Queensland and that man of mine will only consider coming here in June or July. Too hot for him the rest of the […]

baby, it's cold outside

baby, it’s cold outside

Another cold night in a tent brings me to these thoughts. Do I need a warmer sleeping bag? No. I just need to only ever camp in places where my current sleeping bag is warm enough. End of story. Well, right now it’s become the start of my imagining where I might like to be camping. […]

So much to see in Central Australia. My highlight of the the week was meeting Brolga and Roger. More about them further down. Will definitely come back this way again, especially to walk the Larapinta Trail. For some reason I had the idea in my head that this walk went across the desert. Boy, was […]
