Europe » Germany » Baden-W├╝rttemberg August 3rd 2013

After a disappointing drive through of Frieburg we travelled through amazing Scenery to Triberg the home of cuckoo clocks and Germany's largest waterfall. Left the boys to do the long walk up the hill back to the car park. Came across a swimming lake with inflatables so stayed night as weather now in mid 30s. Next day left Black Forest and made it to lake Constance in Meersbug. Stopped for lunch and stroll around old town. Slow journey to Lindau but found a campsite by lake. Nice swim but midgets are a pain in evening. Glad there's no border control as route passed into Austria. Decided to allow motorways on satnav so drove through some long tunnels and quicker trip. Fussen very busy. Went straight to castle Neuschwanstein. Had to wait nearly 4 hours for english ... read more

Europe » United Kingdom July 24th 2013

Getting ready for the big trip and growing more excited by the minute. Sure we will forget something but I guess that's what the credit card is for. Hope we get a few peep's following our adventure into the outback of Europe. No confirmed sites to stop at apart from Spa at end of trip. Got a rough route but I am sure that will change. Will add as many pic's as we can and would love some mails and feed back. 67 hours 55 mins till we are on the ferry! Enjoy. I know we will. The Pearce Family... read more

Asia » Thailand » Western Thailand » Hua Hin August 23rd 2010

Woke to breafast in the room which was a suprise as we had forgotten we added it when booking. With breaky done we went to explore the complex and view the Sheraton Hotel in who's grounds our villa is situated. As always the brochures over sell things and we soon found we would have to pay extra to use the facilities at the Sheraton along with extra payment for electricity if we went over our allocated amount. As things here are that bit cheaper we took the news with smiles and just got on with our holiday. On the up side the villa is very good value for money and has a one and a half kilometre swimming pool going straight past our balcony, along with all the essential additions such as hair dryer and tele ... read more

Oceania » Australia » Victoria » Melbourne August 22nd 2010

Packed and tidied house. Stopped at nice beach cafe in Melbourne for lunch before being dropped off at Airport. Said our sad goodbyes before boarding our Thai Airways flight to Bangkok. Flight fairly empty so could spread out and had 3 seats each. Service very good and the kids managed to get some sleep. Unfortunately waking up to be offered noodles with prawns and chilli was too weird for Chris and he had to make use of the sick bag. Taxi was waiting for us and we made haste on the empty roads to our Blue Lagoon Villa. ... read more

Oceania » Australia » Victoria » Philip Island August 21st 2010

Andy arrived late last night so stayed up chatting. Wilson decided the change of routine was not to his liking and got up at 5.30 so not the best start to a day for Sharon. Drove to Cowes. Pretty town and bay. The girls took time out to do a quick look around the shops whilst Moe entertained Wilson making balloon models. Moved on to Nobbies Point to try and see the seals on Seal Rocks. Could make out their shape but not that close. Good visitor centre though. After grabbing some warm clothes and dropping off Andy and Wilson back at the house we went to experience the Penguin Parade. At dusk, hundreds of fairy penguins come ashore and waddle in groups to find their burrows and mating partners for the night. Amazing experience watching ... read more

Oceania » Australia » Victoria » Philip Island August 20th 2010

Time to leave Melbourne and head for Philip Island, our next view of Melbourne would be from the airport on Sunday. The drive to Philip Island was to take about two hours and with Wilson coming along we planned a halfway stop for lunch and a leg stretch. Timboon was our lunch stop and we found a nice picnic area with toilets and a play area to entertain Wilson. We were staying in another rented house and we arrived to find another fantastic holiday property again with sea views, well done Sharon. We settled in and did some unpacking. Another lie in and a late breafast was had before heading out for a walk around Rhyll, the village we were staying in. One convienence store and two coffee shops along with a few boat yards was ... read more

Oceania » Australia » Victoria » Apollo Bay August 19th 2010

Today was not as eventful as others and we took a leisurely drive back to Melbourne stopping at Lorne for lunch and coffee. After feeding the kids and getting Wilson to bed we left Kay and Chris to babysit for the evening while we headed out for a meal at a local Cambodian resturaunt. The food was great and it was nice to get away from the kids for a few hours.... read more

Oceania » Australia » Victoria » Apollo Bay August 18th 2010

My turn to make breaky so bacon and omlette was the order of the day. Our travels today took us further along the great ocean road and we visited several view points along the beach such as London Bridge, The Twelve Apostles and the Arch. We also drove up the road to Ottway Lighthouse where we stopped to do wild koala spotting which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. our next stop was to view a local cheese factory and a local distillery where of course we did some tasting. After a full day on the road we returned to the house for home cooked lasagne and another bottle of red wine. After dinner we settled the kids and jumped into the car to go find Apollo Bays stonking nightlife, we didnt find it and settled fot the ... read more
