Day two of the fantastic 4 team! The adventure began with a drive north of Cairns, to Port Douglas. We had heard that the road itself being only 40 something km would in fact take us up to anywhere near 3 hours to drive, give or take a little. That was due to the fact … Continue reading We head north to Port Douglas
Alex’s parents have arrived! And in good Alyce and Alex style we arrived just in time before they walked out of the gate. For anyone unaware of our track record, we are normally late to the airport, sorry Li, or we are there just in time, 1 minute before a gate closes to be precise. … Continue reading Welcome Chris and Annette!
The time has come where our trip will have some extra quests for a few weeks, Alex’s parents are joining us! Or as this post is a few weeks delayed, they have joined us… If you have been following our trip closely you will know that Alex and I had expanded in terms of our … Continue reading What we got up to in Cairns: Spring cleaning our car…
Unaware of what a town like Mt Isa had to offer, like many other towns we intended on staying in, we stopped first at the visitors centre. Turns out Mt Isa is a mining town, they mine copper, zinc, silver and lead. When we were trying to remember what they mined Alex's response was a … Continue reading First stop in QLD: Mt Isa
Ok before I get into the post I have to say I am sorry for such a delay in posting this! There has been good reason, other than our lack of good Wi-Fi. So thank you for bearing with my 'break' and enjoy our riveting first post in a while... So our time in Kakadu … Continue reading We finally have strong enough internet! Yay here is a really delayed and somewhat boring story… #sorry

So let’s start at the beginning. As mentioned in our last post, once we finally … Continue reading Have you seen Kakadu? No? Neither have we…
Bali! Woohoo 4 full days of delicious Indonesian food, lying by the pool, drinking cocktails and not having to drive come at us! Our trip to Bali was for a number of reasons, but if you have never been there is a lot to love about the place. Except many many many Aussies… It is … Continue reading Our first 24 hours in Bali: We drank and ate a lot!
Welcome to Darwin, its HOT here and its winter people! But don't get me wrong! It is lovely, that warmth and the late setting sun, it brings a smile to our faces. We started our first day in Darwin by waking up late and taking our time. However we were disgustingly sweating just by standing … Continue reading Our first few days in Darwin
Today was Alex’s Birthday! Wooo Happy Birthday my love. Yes this post is delayed but oh well you get that being on the road in Australia. We began the day by some very badly sung happy birthday music by myself and a limited search on Spotify. It was nice and early when we woke, with … Continue reading Not just a special day because we visited Litchfield National Park…
Todays adventure began with us waking up at our free camp spot, next to the highway in the NT. The warm night before had turned into a very warm morning so after a quick pack up we were on the road. Our destination that day was the town of Katherine, where my dad had been … Continue reading We visited the town of Katherine, some hot springs in-between and the funky town of Bachelor
