Falling From 14,000ft in Mission Beach, Australia.

Mission Beach is a tiny seaside town with one of the most sunbathe friendly beaches we have been to; it’s huge and it’s gorgeous.

The Whitsundays, Airlie Beach, Australia.

The Blue Mountains, Australia.Β 

We had always said that in Australia we would hire a camper-van, partly to give us freedom of movement and also because we wanted to fit in as many different experiences as possible in the 7 months we are away. We ended up hiring a little two-man camper from Britz in Sydney for the remainder […]
