Cities and Mountains, oh my

Day 14 & 15 “Chop chop ladies, chop chop!” shouted Jayden. Crystal and I raced on. Let me explain. The remainder of yesterday evening was enhanced greatly by the presence of the five boys camping next door. After the sun set, they (and we) were ... Read more >

Entering Bambiland

Monday, 21 Jan 2008 | Views [1441]

Day 12 & 13 I’m lying on the grass in the greenest place I have ever been in my life. We’ve just arrived in the teeny town, or shall I say, campground, of Bendeela, about 40 minutes outside Wollongong. Sydney is only two hours away, but it could ... Read more >

Just One of Those Days...

Saturday, 19 Jan 2008 | Views [968]

Day 11 Well, today was just one of those days. Let me preface this post by saying we have had absolutely perfect weather the past 12 days. Could not have asked for better. Today, finally, it rained. ... Read more >

On the Road

Day 10 The key to roadtripping is, one might say, is to find the perfect balance between the actual driving and the “other” stuff. Eating, sightseeing, hiking, etc. For some, the idea of spending six hours in a car — tunes blaring, windows ... Read more >

The Overnight Hike (OMG)

Thursday, 17 Jan 2008 | Views [2302] | Comments [1]

Day 8 First things first, Wilson’s Promontory was one of the first Australian National Parks I’d ever gone to in Australia, so it did hold a special place in my heart. Back then in September, I saw herds of kangaroos basking in the sunlight of a ... Read more >

Day 6 Have I mentioned Australians are nice? If not, now’s a good time. Last night we stayed in a caravan park on the beach for free (with showers, wahoo!) purely because the awesome lady at the reservation center took pity on Crystal and I. It was ... Read more >

Hiking (wheeze) the Grampians

Tuesday, 15 Jan 2008 | Views [2460]

Day 4 So we didn’t end up overnight camping. Which, to be honest, was OK with me. Maybe in Wilson’s Prom…maybe not ;) We started our day at the Brambuk National Park Centre to grab a trail map. The center was beautifully done — a large, open, airy ... Read more >

Day 3 “Eeeeeeahhhhhhh!!!!” That’s pretty much what it sounds like all morning at our campsite, because Crystal and I cannot stop shrieking about the ridiculous amount of flies swarming around our heads at breakfast. They were particularly bad yesterday ... Read more >

Day 2 I woke up to my brother’s face peering through the locked van door. I still get surprised, after traveling on my own for so long, that I’m now with someone who has known me essentially my entire life. There’s a level of comfort that comes with ... Read more >
