Me, Hazel and Lynsey
The three travellers!
Geraldton is a small city on the coast, although after Meeka, it felt huge! It was here that we bought our car, a Ford Falcon Fairmont. A friend, Rochelle, offered to drive me and Hazel to Geraldton as she was going to visit family. It's about a five hour drive through even smaller towns than Meeka. Lynsey had left Meeka two weeks before to go to Bali with her boyfriend and would be meeting us in Geraldton. For the first two nights, we all stayed in a beautiful cottage. It had a big kitchen, dining area and lounge, a separate sitting room, two double bedrooms with ensuites and two separate toilets.
During these two days, we bought all our camping gear, including the tent. A friend from Meeka, Pedro, had recently moved to Geraldton and he let us spend the third night in his back garden! This allowed us to test the tent and all the camping gear. Then it was time for the three of us to start our road trip!!
