dear all,

our employment has begun!! the caravan park is awesome, has a pool, free laundry for us and there are 12 of us that all live in the farm house together.

jobs include toilet cleaning, bar, kitchen, night patrol, cleaning caravans and general maitenance, pool attendant and the shop. so far all has been great.

There is no internet access at the caravan park so there wont be many blogs or emails. sorry.

the only contact we will have is mail.

the address is

Faskally Caravan Park


Perthshire PH16 5LD

Hi Jess Dan and Amy. We have arrived home safely from our really short holiday. Compared to yours seems like a drop in a bucket. Had a great time and sounds like you are still enjoying everything in your travels. We hope works goes well and you enjoy all the experiences ahead of you. Love to all. Bassos

Hi guys,
emailing from Alice Springs. First chance I have had to see your blog for a week. It may be a while till we can speak. So firstly I wish Daniel a very happy birthday. Hope your get your card and little pressie in time. We love you heaps and send lots of hugs and kisses. Alice Springs has not changed except a bit cooler this time compared to 8 years ago. Got here in time to miss the camel races by 1 day...oohhhhh...but in time to visit the market. Had a trouble free trip so far. Coober Pedy was different.Brought a beautiful solid opal ring. The landscape is changing all the time on this trip. Drought.....you havent seen it until you have been up here. I bet green is all around you guys over there. They desperately need it here. Still lots of indigenous folk wandering around up here. Remember last time Daniel? Roughing it has been fun but then like you, we have let our hair down and stayed in motels in Coober Pedy and Alice Springs. Nice to have a real shower without worrying about the water. Anyway stay well and again love and miss you 2 and Amy too. HAve a great day on your Birthday Dan. Will you be working??
Love Daz and Tina. (dad and mum)We are taking lots of photo's too.

Hey Guys - firstly i will start writing by stating that I HATE MELBOURNE
Came home few days ago from Thailand and the weather here is miserable. Thailand was bout 30 to 35 degrees everyday, sun mostly shining - i want to be back! Unfortunately first opportunity i have had to read your blog since leaving so was a test to read 4 entries at once :D Anyway Thailand was awesome, so cheap and so fun, and guess who we bumped into on our plane trip home - the Bassos. We were on the same flight - small world hey!
Anyway, will chat soon, but keep having a blast - Brenton and Shannon

Well Hello! You'll not believe it, Im sitting on the net at the shop a.k.a 'work' and I was searching for Faskally Caravan Park, reading reviews and the likes.. then I saw a link including the names.. Dan, Jess and Amy... I couldn't resist but leave a message, I thought it very funny that I randomly found this. Jeez first page of a search on Google, you's are practically famous!
Well as you can probably tell, Im extremely bored searching Faskally online.. I think I'll go sweep the floor or something.. hehe!
