Christmas, that time of year where everyone goes a bit silly, you wrap up warm, drink, eat, sing, see old friends and family and generally be merry. Well, when you are backpacking, halfway around the world from home and in a country where Christmas is in the summer, things feel a bit different. Here is … More Oz Campervan Adventure Part 10: Christmas in Australia
After the Babinda Boulders we started making our way South along the coast towards Brisbane for New Year. Along the way our main objectives were to stop at waterholes and beaches as much as possible to cool off and enjoy a slow pace of life – a vast difference from missioning it through the outback…although … More Oz Campervan Adventure Part 9: Cairns to Brisbane
Our final drive through the outback and back to civilisation. We stopped at Kakadu National Park to enjoy an abundance of nature and historic graffiti. We enjoyed many of our very own Crocodile Dundee moments whilst going through the Never-Never. And thankfully made it out alive – just!
A week working in the outback on a mango farm with a laid back Aussie dude brewing a shed load of his own beer, an Aussie lady who is a remarkable cook, a broken dog and a croc in the lake behind the garden. This was going to be an awesome week.
This was the big one – Adelaide to Darwin. Driving through Australia’s red centre following pretty much one straight road, only detouring to take in the epic Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) and King’s Canyon. In total this would be a 4,000km (2,500 mile) leg of our campervan adventure which may be a long way to … More Oz Campervan Adventure Part 5: Adelaide to Darwin taking in Uluru and King’s Canyon

After spending over a week sightseeing and painting the Colourful House of Surry Hills with Thierry Noir in Sydney it was time to commence our Australian Campervan Adventure. We picked up our home on wheels in the shape of a Mitsubishi Express from the depot and set off not really understanding what we were letting … More Oz Campervan Adventure Part 1: Sydney to Melbourne via the Grand Pacific Drive and Wilson’s Prom
Our Sydney adventure started with an 24+ hour journey from Bali, travelling for hours in the wrong direction, an uncomfortable layover and five modes of transport. Sleep deprivation killing us slowly. I mean, any normal man would have just turned up his toes and died. But not us. No. Thousands of miles… Shattered beyond belief… … More Sydney: Awesome City, Awesome Sights
We were looking forward to our time in Kuta. Not because of the supposedly beautiful beaches, surfing and nightlife but because Rob’s Mum, Raffaella, and partner Roger were flying out to meet us and we would be staying in a posh hotel for the first time on our travels (we’ll let you work out which … More Kuta, Bali: Holiday Central
