Farewell dinner

We started to slowly start organising our things today ready to pack back into our backpacks with Chris discovering that I now had 17 tops. Bugger. So of course some had to disappear to the local charity shop. When you don’t have many clothes it is hard to part with ones that have travelled...

Soon to be moving on...

Found out that we have got a place to stay in Melbourne from Thursday until we fly out on Monday in a REAL bed! After considering it for not too long we jumped at the chance to be out of our tiny damp leaking tent (although I do secretly like it) so tried, and failed to get a refund as we had...

All the way into the city

Went into the city of Geelong, had a walk around for a bit. Weather= crap. Nothing particularly exciting occurred.

My head hurts... in fact, everything hurts...

Spent the day recovering… Ouch, everything aches, got bruises everywhere, Chris has a bad knee whilst I have a bad ankle, so we both hobbled along for the day feeling VERY sorry for ourselves. Unfortunately we did have to leave the campsite as we ran out of essential supplies, such as Comfort...

Happy Hour...

Happy hour started at the local pub at 4:30pm so promptly 2 minutes before we turned up. We took full advantage of the cheap beers and free bar snacks, but unfortunately we ended up staying for all the unhappy hours until closing. Met loads of friends, drank and talked a load of rubbish all...

Swim

Had another chilled day, nice and sunny so perfect for a swim in the pool before heading to town for a few beers and a lovely pizza and a bottle of wine.

Cheap flights :)

We woke to the sun shining through blue skies. We went back into town and visited the charity shop where Maureen works, she had found some nice thongs (flip flops) for me, Havaianas once again as the last ones broke yesterday for only $1. Plus I found some bargain tops all for $1. We then...

Moving house

I waved goodbye to our first home we brought together at 9:30am as Chris drove it down into town to meet Scott and Jordan. He was gone for over 3 hours but most of this time I was kept busy chatting to Maureen, our neighbour who has been in the caravan park for over 30 years. She kept feeding...
