Dark Days In Denmark

In the two-plus years that we have been living on the road, we have done numerous, very diverse, housesitting jobs. However, nothing could have prepared us for what happened at a farm sit in Denmark WA on August 14th. It was a challenging but interesting job right from the start, as our “induction was not …

Bluff Knoll

I had climbing Bluff Knoll on my bucket list for quite some time. It is listed as one of the 25 best hikes in Australia and at 1099 metres, is the highest peak in this part of Oz. We had been staying near The Stirling Ranges for over a month and finally the weather gods …

Mt Trio

These photos were taken on Sunday 16th October, 2016 while climbing to the top of Mount Trio in The Stirling Ranges National Park. It is a great, but steep walk. It was cool and cloudy, but little wind or rain (for a change). The wildflowers were prolific and spectacular, with many of them endemic to …

Outback Meanderings

– By Rod Bye bye Ningaloo Reef! It is time to leave the coast behind and head into the “Wild Western Outback”. Leo and The Wombat were keen to get some dirt under our tyres. Little did we know how much of it would actually be mud. A few hundred kilometres south-west of Exmouth are …

Whale Shark Honeymoon

By Dee As the sound of wedding bells faded, we headed off to the Quobba Blowholes for Honeymoon, Part 1. It was great to revisit Quobba, to relax and adjust to married life. The weather wasn’t idyllic, with a few hot and windy days teeming with friendly flies, but it was still pretty special. Stunning …

Wedding Bells

-By Dee Well, it’s official, we are husband and wife! How weird. Most wedding days are magical and special, but our nomadic situation and distance from friends and family made our ‘Special Day’ unusual, nonetheless extraordinary. (It was also my birthday—best birthday ever.) The setting, at Capricorn Holiday Park in Carnarvon, was more magical than …

Travelling North

Most of our travels up until now had been fairly spontaneous, making it up as we went along – where to stay and what to do and see. Somehow that had changed to the point that we pretty much knew where we were going to be for the next six to eight months. After leaving …

The Great Southern

  – By Rod One adventure ends and another one begins. After three productive, interesting weeks at Kojonup it was time to say farewell our hosts and relocate to Bremer Bay on the south coast. Darren and Rosie had very kindly offered us the use of their “beach house” not far from the small seaside town, nestled in …

Summer Sojourns

– By Dee Summer was just around the corner and we had it all pretty well planned out with camphosting, housesitting, and working. An interesting and varied set of adventures to dive into. Well, we had experienced Life in The Burbs, attended our first National Parks Camp Hosting workshop, explored a bit of the South …

The South West

– By Rod As nice as our time housesitting in suburban Perth was, after two weeks of city life it was great to be back on the road and heading south to start to explore the South West corner of WA. It was an area that we had heard lots of good things about and …
