Dimanche, RDV à 9h00 chez Dawn, c'est bon on est à l'heure, et surprise on trouve des croissants en allant chez elle. On y va à pied, on a juste à traverser un parc. Elle nous prépare un vrai café italien, ça nous change du café en poudre. Ensuite direction City Beach pour notre première baignade dans l'océan Indien. Cette plage s'appelle ainsi car c'est la plus proche de la ville. Il fait un peu frais (23° mais tout est relatif n'est-ce pas ;-) et il y a des nuages mais ça se lève vite. Le bord de mer est aménagé, avec cafés et douches; il y a des Life Rescue (sauveteurs) en rouge et jaunes, et même un hélicoptère qui patrouille, pour surveiller si il y a des requins. Dawn nous dit que parfois ils ... read more

Ce matin réveillés de bonne heure, nous décidons d'aller faire un tour à Kings Park, parc très connu. Vu qu'il se trouve environ à 3km de la maison, nous optons pour le vélo. Après avoir bien étudié sur 3 minis plans de la ville quel est le meilleur chemin possible, nous partons à 8h du mat'!! Nous mettons les casques à vélo, bien qu'on n'aime pas ça car ici c'est 50$ l'amende si on ne l'a pas! Et on fait bien attention à rouler à gauche, finalement ce n'est si dur que ça. Enfin, on verra ça quand on conduira. Après 25 mins de biking, on y arrive, c'est super; le parc surplombe la ville et Swan River, le fleuve qui traverse la ville. Ce magnifique parc de 40 hectares est la 1ère destination touristique de ... read more

Le jet lag (décalage horaire) et la chaleur ont raison de moi: 3h de sommeil cette nuit!! J’en profite pour tester Skype avec la Martinique (12h de décalage), ça y est le micro marche ! On attend vos appels !! Impossible de faire comme Nico, qui saute du lit à 7h30 pour peindre (again ?!) Finalement je m’y mets à 9h30, en pyjama cette fois. Et pour peindre des panneaux de bois bancals !! On est mort de rire de cette situation. Bref, en fin de mat’ notre calvaire est achevé. On va pouvoir aller se balader un peu et aller à la banque. Comme il est fortement conseillé, nous partons à 13h sous un soleil de plomb, le ventre vide, faire une marche de 25mins !! LOL. Le RDV à la banque dure plus longtemps ... read more

Après un départ retardé à cause de la neige, nous quittons finalement Toulouse mardi 7 février en fin de journée. Le vol Londres - Singapour un peu long (12h) mais on tient bon, au-dessus du Pakistan et de l'Inde ça secoue grave!! Escale très sympa à Singapour grâce à notre surclassement en Business Class: accès au Lounge VIP Qantas, douche, boissons et collations à volonté!! Puis dans l'avion, ça continue, on est à nos petits soins, avec champagne, bons vins australiens, repas de qualité et sièges inclinables à 180° pour un super dodo!! Ce vol est trop court!! Après les formalités douanières (à 1h30 du mat'!!) on prend un taxi pour arriver chez Greg Burns!! On précise c'est son vrai nom. C'est comique d'arriver au milieu de la nuit chez des inconnus, on trouve facilement le ... read more

Dublin Airport- Sad to say goodbye to everyone. It really was, we were in shock on the other side of the screen. We still managed a Chicken Royale though....we ate it through tears. Looked back at the photos and i really dont think my ma and da will miss us. Germany- Weather was minus 13 when we arrived. It actually hurt to breathe in, stinging cold. But we had to go out and get rae her fag...and bottle of diet coke. Only had to wait 2 hours instead of the 14 we thought so that was handy. the flight was 2 hours to here so it was grand. Hostess asked us if we'd move to the exit seats with extra leg room. We were like class ou've it.....THE CHAIRS DIDNT GO BACK AT ALL!!!! Malaysia- Beautiful ... read more

Well, it is official. Our Aussie Odyssey is now over, and there is no turning back, as our car has been sold, and our faithful Cazza is also gone. Since we arrived back in Perth (two weeks ago can you believe!), so much has happened. We spent a day unloading the caravan, trying to find space for everything in my parents’ home - quite a challenge, especially as we also had to fit in! We advertised both the caravan and car over that first weekend, and the car was sold straight away, but there was not much interest in the caravan (apparently just before Easter is the best time to sell). As we were struggling to fine a place to park the caravan, we ended up giving it to a company to sell Cazza on consignment, ... read more

...I'm flying today! The Welsh wonder that is Julia Gillard (I'm sure she loves being reminded she's Welsh, not Australian) told me yesterday afternoon that the Qantas debacle was over for now and that my flight would be taking off as planned. OK, so she didn't quite announce to the world that my particular flight would be bound for Perth but she might as well have. Made up - Perth was always my destination of choice on this little adventure. I just decided to add a few stops, or make that countries, on the way there and back... I'm up and about at 3am as my taxi is coming to get me at 5.30am (the taxi in question doesn't know it at the time but more on that subject later). Having cleaned the apartment yesterday, I ... read more

Name: Bert Age: 12 M/F: Rugged and manly, even in a subtle beige Model: Ford Falcon Wagon Size: 4Litre engine. That's like our last three UK cars under one bonnet. Internal Size: Massive. Comfortably a double bed size in the back with the seats down. Bert has saved us from the cold on four nights already. Decor: Curtains made from reduced bed sheet set and velcro sticky pads. Driving: Roads and car parks are huge so no problems as yet. Automatic too. Can't drive when it starts getting dark in the country because of kangaroos, seen quite a lot out in the day so Bert has to be tucked up by about 6pm (sun goes down early here). Check out the map to see where we we've been so far... Will write some more interesting things ... read more
