Flipping the Coin

a trip by The Ts
From: May 17th 2013
Until: ongoing

Hi all,

We are on "Count Down" to go travelling again, so Kangaroojack is packing his pouch, to set off on 17th May, when we officially leave the apartment.

The decision was made, when we came to realise that we were just treading water in Canberra and "Going Nowhere", Caroline has been struggling to find work in her field, or any field for that matter, with the election being announced making the employment situation worse, so we decided that we may as well go and have some fun, until 2014 and we will review the situation then.

It is our intention to go straight up the centre of Australia, get to Alice Springs then Flip the coin, Heads to Darwin or Tails to Perth.

We have enjoyed our time in Canberra immensely, we have made tons of friends, its always hard to say Adieu, but nothing is forever. We have the pleasure of having friends all over Australia and will hope to catch up with as many as we can while we travel.

So stay tuned on the blog and we will keep you abreast of our adventures as they unfold.

Kangaroojack
