So what is all about? Well... hopefully, by the time we are done, it will be a comprehensive journal about a family of 5 who have travelled around Australia to see the sights and also do some volunteer work around the country! In Mid 2010 we started thinking about what it would take to fulfil a life-long dream... We wanted to bundle up our 3 kids, pack-up the house, jump in the car and hit the road - probably for about 12 months. It sounds so simple ... At the start of January 2013, after almost 15 months on the road; we finally completed Our Big Aussie Road Trip. We hope that you enjoyed following our adventures, trials and tribulations as much as we enjoyed having them!

Our last night in Sydney... at least for a while!

After many hours of packing, sorting and organising, we have arrived at our last night in Sydney (at least for a while!).  It has been a really busy time lately.  In the last 2 weeks we have: handed the house over the its temporary owners, moved into Mike's parents house, Mike has finished work, we have moved out of Mike's parents house and into Liz's parents house, we have sorted all the gear and culled as much stuff as we can so that we are only taking as much as we think we need, we've bought and installed a roof cage for Bruiser, Josh has started school via the Sydney Distance Education Primary School, we have packed the Van, and we have packed the car (and we have been burning the candle at both ends to achieve all of this!  not to mention fighting off a bit of sickness - just to top it off).

However, with all of the above behind us, it means that we are now ready to drive out of Sydney tomorrow morning - which also happens to be Liz's Birthday, so it will be a memorable day all 'round.

I would have loved to write more and post a few pictures of some of the last 2 weeks, but time has cut me short :)

So, next stop is Canberra!  So make sure you "watch this space..."

Hi Mike and Liz,

Hope you get off to a great start. Look forward to catching up with you next time you're back in Sydney.
