Welcome, come in, take a seat and enjoy the view!
We were lucky enough to be in a position to make one of our dreams come true and it's hard to believe that we can now say we've 'been there and done that! It was the sort of adventure that 'normal people' like us could only dream about, taking a year out of work and travelling around Australia in a caravan towed by a 4WD. Somehow though we managed to turn it into a reality and between April 28th 2009 and April 26th 2010 that's exactly what we did.
Our beautiful home and much loved cat in Moira, Derbyshire, UK were looked after by family while we explored the nether regions of Oz. What a year we had, we'd do it again in a heart beat.
We wanted to have a good reminder of what we'd seen, where we'd been and the people we'd met along the way and this travel blog is it! Our daily diary of life on the road where most days started with a different view and ended with a whole load more memories.
This trip won't be our last, of that we are now certain and we're already planning Project Outback - the sequel!
As for the blog, well we're passing the mantel over to Mum and Dad (Sarah's) for the time being as they are just arriving in Australia for their 2nd outback adventure of a lifetime! Look out for the Pootling Possums
All that we have to do now is update the original google map of where we thought we'd get to in Australia
against where we did actually manage to get! There's quite a difference in some places!
So here's to the next adventure, we hope it's not too far away for us but while we're saving up and working hard we'll enjoy watching Mum and Dad relish every minute of the freedom that is Australia!
Here's to travelling, the experiences, the opportunities and the memories.
Darryl and Sarah aka The Wallaby Wanderers!
