Traveling around Australia - 2012

a trip by Jackie & Dean
From: January 30th 2012
Until: ongoing

We are young and free! :-) So we have decided to go traveling around Australia!

Our lovely van will be our home for the next 10 or so months, while we explore this beautiful country.

We start with Tasmania, before heading North on the East Coast, making our way across the Northern Territory, down Western Australia and across South Australia.

We hope you'll follow us via this blog. For earlier trips, see http://realtravel.com/u-102000-jackie_dean

Stay well and happy!
