Finally the mythical caravan has materialised, been packed, and we are on our way. So for those of you who are curious, here is out caravan. It is an Adventura 19’ 6” with an ensuite, and has been set up like a mobile studio apartment.

So a brief tour of our caravan starts with this image of the bedroom.

The ensuite has what you would expect plus a washing machine under the vanity bench.

The kitchen is near and dear to Joan’s heart. Although the limited bench space will require some getting used to.

Following Joan’s comments about never having seen Greg without his beard in 35 years of marriage, he decided to start out trek with a new look. What do you think?

We set off on a bright sunny Sunday, initially driving through the farming areas, where we saw lots of vivid yellow fields of canola.

At the end of our first day we stayed overnight in Pt Augusta. Greg spent some time working on his weekly Technical Analysis note.

For dinner we celebrated our first day with a special meal and some lovely wine.

I couldn't work it out
I looked at Greg and couldn't work out why he looked different until I read that the beard is missing, goes to show how observant I am. Glad to see you have walls on the caravan, it looks great and well thought out. I look forward to reading about your travels, am envious as hell.

Nice plates. Good to see the flatware in use after being in the guest room all those months... Nice canola shot! X A&G&C

New look Greg

The new Greg
Nearly unrecognisable : ) Then I saw you at the table with the computer... there was Greg. You know, you look ok without a beard... you look ok with one too.
