Tip of our hat and warm smile

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 13 Jun 2008 | Views [1228]

Being poor of purse, but rich in eloquence, let us look back over our   two months with The Van with but a drop of nostalgia. Blue skies  have taken over as the propelling force, just as we once took over from the Hussy Hicks ... Read more >

Thank you and farewell to our Ambassador Van

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 4 Jun 2008 | Views [1182] | Comments [2]

And we have handed over the Ambassador Van to a new crew. As World Nomad Ambassadors we have traveled this wide brown land, tapping our fingers on the keyboard along the way. We’ve watched the kilometer thingy flicking over with hypnotic repetition.... Read more >

Conversations on the road V

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [874]

(I haven’t uploaded conversations on the road for some time because, as we all know, familiarity breeds contempt, and in this case, enclosure in a little van erased what little sense of humour I had left after our India trip. However, with ... Read more >

These two posts are just to highlight some of our photos because I think we’ve taken quite a few brilliant ones and I’d like to show them off. If you have the time, please enjoy. The first photo is actually a picture that my talented partner ... Read more >

Rockhampton - cattle capital and rather pretty for all that.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [1820]

The old sandstone buildings are being restored, the botanical gardens are pretty (I loved the Japanese garden and huge golden bamboo), and we now sit in the Rockhampton Art Gallery sipping coffee and indulging our lap top caprice. ... Read more >

Curvy Coastlines

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 2 Jun 2008 | Views [1112]

The greatest thing about leaving Cairns for the less populated areas was the re-emergence of the stars.   Its one of the great healing sights for me and getting away from the electric lights of a town is a big positive. ... Read more >

Lonely Planet Great Guidebook Moment - The catalan dreamer

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 May 2008 | Views [778] | Comments [2]

Even before we knew that we were going to take this trip, and even before thinking of coming to North Queensland,   Ginny (Tiffany’s mother) was already telling us that, somewhere around Cairns, they went and saw a Spanish castle, and it was ... Read more >


Lonely Planet Great Guidebook Moment - And god created the reef

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 May 2008 | Views [1247] | Comments [1]

(well, god or whoever or whatever creates those things in the world that are amazingly beautiful) So. One of the must-do things for anyone who wants to have a complete trip to Australia, besides climbing Uluru and eating a koala ... Read more >


Port Douglas and the Daintree

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 24 May 2008 | Views [2405] | Comments [2]

I honestly didn’t think that much about Port Douglas. It was pricey and the locals (we met) sneering arrogant types I haven’t memory space for.   Just as we were leaving, Albert suggested we take a look at ANZAC park and enjoy ... Read more >

Atherton Table Land

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 16 May 2008 | Views [3004] | Comments [4]

We entered the Atherton Tableland from Queensland’s highest town, Ravenshoe.   One evening we slept in the town’s FREE   rest stop. It was well situated beside a meandering creek and seemed popular with other travellers. ... Read more >

Hitting the Coral Coast

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 16 May 2008 | Views [1090] | Comments [3]

We’re sitting under the protective shelter at the Serpent Hostel. It’s a rainy day and Albert has deserted us for the pleasures of the reef ( see his post at a later date ). Jett is content with his school work (singing quietly ... Read more >

The land (and sometimes the bookstore) talking

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 16 May 2008 | Views [1643] | Comments [2]

Spiritual drivil - if you don't dig it, skip to the next story Leliyn I practised yoga at sunrise at Leliyn, at the base of the deep pool. There was a dark heaviness in the water, but it threw the lightness of the clean air into relief.... Read more >

Lonely Planet Great Guidebook Moment - Undara Lava Tubes

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 9 May 2008 | Views [2225]

I have to admit that when I was researching for this trip, one of the things that quickly interested me were this Undara Lava Tubes. Not because I am a huge geology aficionado, but it looked like being one of these unique and spectacular formations ... Read more >

Croydon – Lonely Planet Guide Book Moment

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 9 May 2008 | Views [2059] | Comments [1]

Croydon, a little town with a beating heart of gold (We entered Croydon with a recent 4000 kilometres under our belt) I’m flicking through the brochures, finding more information, and nothing comes close to explaining the reality of entering ... Read more >
