Back from Travels with my Family   12 comments

Been a bit quiet on here the past few weeks and I bet you were all wondering where I’d gone. You were worried, I can tell as you’re all very caring readers, I can see that from here.

Well, after a year and half of planning and anticipation we went to Queensland, Australia for a month and what an amazing time we had. I’m still sifting through photos and in fact I’m still several posts behind from my pre-holiday antics so it will be a few weeks before I start to write up all the fantastic stuff we got up to.

In advance of that here’s a bit of taster of what’s to come and the places – and wildlife – we saw

  1. Can’t wait to see more pictures of your trip to Australia! How fortunate that you were able to go for a month! We went several years back for only 2 weeks which was not nearly long enough. From your “taster”, it looks like it was an amazing trip!

  5. Very exciting 😊 just been musing about how much it would cost to ship our van out there for a trip!

    • I’ll be boring everyone for several weeks with stories. I suspect it MIGHT be cheaper to hire one 🙂

      Seriously a great place for a van trip, loads of them out there and so easy to get around. Had we not been staying on islands for a significant part of the trip we were seriously considering hiring one as our way of getting around
