The Journey Begins

20180709_100352_LIThanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

It was early January 2018 when we decided that life was too short to sit in suburbia waiting for life to pass us by, so in July 2018 we sold most of our possessions, rented out the house  and headed off to live in the camper trailer while traveling Australia.

We have always enjoyed traveling and getting away from the crowds – fishing, camping, fossicking or enjoying the solitude. In our younger days it was sleeping on the ground with self-inflatable mattresses, and a tarp over our heads. I’m sure many of you have done the same things. These days I like a little more comforts now I’m getting older – and a little more distance between the creepy crawlies.

This site was started so we can write about our  experiences (both good and bad) so we can remember this time and the people, places and experiences we have had. Its also a way all our family and friends can keep a track of what we’re up too.



  1. I will be folliwing your journey with interest. These blogs are very well written and entertaining to read. Well done. I am so pleased that you made such a positive lifestyle choice. Onward and Upward!


  2. Hey you two. Bloody good on ya for getting out tgere and enjoying life & seeing this great country of ours.
