Sep 8, 2013 - Day 4 Part 6

We made it! 1.30pm - and we beat Simon and Sarah - by 15 minutes! Woohoo! The driving did it! Interesting caravan park, it's right on the banks of the Torrens river and if there wasn't park construction going on across the river, it would be sooo peaceful! The only complaint is they're a bit skimpy on the brand of toilet paper but that's a small thing, really. The main thing is, it's close to the Convention Centre, so we'll be home really quickly.

Jul 25, 2013 - Adelaide

Terry and I went into on the bus into Adelaide. Photo taken was non existence as the weather was so bitter, we preferred to take the city loop bus - like our shuttle buses. Last time I was in the centre of Adelaide was in 1967 when I was based at Salisbury while serving in the Air Force.

Jun 16, 2013 - Reflections on our travels

We are now staying with family in Adelaide for the next week so our trip is almost completed. It is nice to wake up and know we don't have to pack up the van and move on again! On reflection: • We are especially pleased that we did achieve what we set out to do and have seen and experienced some amazing places in our wonderful country, as well as meeting a range of interesting Aussies and overseas tourists along the way. • We agree that probably 18,000 kms overall in 13 weeks living in the Avan was a bit too long, and, given we were...

May 1, 2013 - Preparing for Home

Today we're preparing for a change of pace as we put the motorhome into storage for a few weeks and fly back home. The reason we're breaking our round Australia trip is to celebrate mum's 90th birthday which she will be celebrating in Canada where dad and mum live. Dad is 92 and We are going to take them to New York for a week prior to the 90th birthday. The trip journal will still continue and we will be updating it every few days. The day is beautiful and we've done our packing and are ready to go. We fly back in the morning. We have...

Apr 30, 2013 - Having a Stirling time!

Today we're visiting new friends Alan and Rosie. We parked overnight in the Apex park car park close by and in the morning it was increasingly difficult to get out as the car park was small and people were coming in but by sheer brilliance we managed it!! Stirling is very beautiful and old worldy but the roads are very narrow and there's not much room to park. We looked for a park and drove down the road through Aldgate and then found a place to turn round and came back. We ended up at the top of Mt. Lofty which has very amazing views....

Apr 28, 2013 - The Hills

After breakfast we went with Forbes and Annette to visit a branch of Margaret Court's church in one of the suburbs. The people were very friendly and we enjoyed the service and worship although I think we were all a little tired. We went back to the house and had a barbecue which Forbes cooked and a refreshing salad. Spending time in the hills of Adelaide is very peaceful and pleasant sitting outside enjoying the sunshine. We enjoyed a barbecue lunch and a visit from their daughter Melinda. It was great to see her again and see her...

Apr 27, 2013 - Heading to Adelaide

It's a lovely day but very windy. We're so glad we went out on in the boat yesterday. David has done all the jobs around the motorhome and I've done the inside plus the washing. We went out for a bike ride into Goolwa but its very windy and it almost blew us over. We left about 3.30 pm travelling through the mountains and pretty country to The hills of Adelaide to visit Forbes and Annette. We arrived just after 5pm and it is so good to see our friends who we haven't seen for a number of years. We enjoyed an excellent meal, great company and...

We flew out of Adelaide with Air New Zealand on Sunday at 11.25am after a long goodbye between Jess & Jason through the glass :( But we were all excited. Flight wasn't too bad and the view over New Zealand was beautiful. We landed in Auckland and waited to board our next flight to LA :)

Mar 26, 2013 - On the track at last! - Adelaide via coastal route

It’s been great to set off after all our planning and see some of Victoria that we haven’t yet explored, although we are quickly learning how people can spend years travelling our vast country as we seem to be skimming the surface of so many places. Along the Hamilton Highway from Geelong we found kilometres of stone walls that were built by the early Scottish settlers and a small country town, Derrinallum, where the lovely Kim came rushing out to fill our tank and clean our windscreen – remember those days? The warm hospitality of our...
