Expectations Smashed!

TASMANIA After hearing so many good reviews about Tasmania, Jim and I were super excited about this chapter of our adventure. It was 2 weeks before we thought we wanted to head over, so we decided it would be a good time to book our ‘Spirit of Tasmania’ ferry ticket. We were originally going to…

Road Life Uncut

Generally on social media living on the road is made to look so glamorous. You may think living on the road is all sunshine, bikinis every day, rainbows, spectacular views, sunsets, beautiful beaches, perfect weather and a never ending summer. Yes we do get a lot of these things, but the photos we put up…

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Portland to Melbourne, VIC The Great Ocean Road The Great Ocean Road is a windy and hilly road that hugs the coast for 250km through many towns and bays south west of Melbourne. It was like nothing else we have seen, with dense forests and dramatic cliffs. It was quite slow travelling as Dory didn’t…

What We Eat Day To Day

I have been getting a few questions about what we actually eat when we are on the road. To be honest, we don’t actually eat too differently to when we lived in a house. A lot of people believe living on the road means 2 minute noodles for every meal, processed food or just really boring…

The Peninsula We Still Don’t Know How To Pronounce

Fleurieu Peninsula (south of Adelaide) After a short stop in Adelaide, we continued south to the Fleurieu Peninsula. It is a lovely area with beautiful coastal beaches and a wine region inland. We spent about a week down on this peninsula over the Easter break. We were lucky enough to score plenty of sunny and…

The Land of Rock Pools and Majestic Sea Creatures

South Australia We have been loving South Australia so far. There is so much untouched coastline and many secluded beaches. I think a lot of people miss Eyre Peninsular and Yorke Peninsula, as they are quite far out of the way, but perhaps after reading this you may reconsider if you head through South Australia….

My Morning Routine

A morning routine is a ritual that you may practise daily. It is a great way to set yourself up and center yourself for the day. A morning routine can really be absolutely anything you like, it could be anything from meditation, going to the gym, reading the newspaper, spending time with your family, going…

Where The Desert Meets The Sea

Balladonia to Streaky Bay, WA to SA THE NULLABOR Eucla: It was finally time to start heading east to South Australia. I had never done the drive before so was quite excited. We woke up early in Balladonia. I started the day with some meditation by the dam, getting ready for a long day of…

A Raw and Abundant Cape

East of Esperance via Cape Arid to Balladonia, WA After meeting with my parents in Hopetoun (west of Esperance), we decided that we would spend some time east of Esperance with them, as it is so beautiful and Jim and I had only scraped the surface the week before. Prior to heading off, we stocked…

How We Keep Camping Meals Practical, But Still Delicious

When camping or living out of your car it is important to pick foods that are practical. This means picking foods that: last a while (even though we do have a fridge, the space is limited), relatively cheap (if you want to sustain life on the road), fill you up so you don’t need to…

Crystal Clear Water and Pristine White Sandy Beaches

ESPERANCE, WA From day one I have been telling Jim I want to live here. I have a feeling I might be saying this about a lot of places.  The water here is crystal clear, there are pristine white sandy beaches, it still feels fairly untouched and there is abundance of wildlife. Wylie Beach In…

FINDING DORY

    In August last year we bought our 2005 Toyota Troopcarrier to give us a good excuse to start planning a big adventure, although we had a few hurdles to get over first. We fully stripped her down, uncovering a bit of undesirable rust which Jim could not look past, being a bit of…
