First time real camping

Wednesday afternoon we finally took the road with our fully equipped van. Headed for Waikerie as we knew there were some orange picking jobs open and we had to get there fast before they ran out. After few hours of driving and with the sun having set, we decided it was time for a rest and stopped in the first rest area by the road that we found. We pulled out the bed and spent our first night. I did not get much sleep, a little freaked out of sleeping alone in the rest area. But all went well, and the next morning... [Lire la suite]

Sydney

We finally arrived in Sydney after a long journey of 39hours. Surprisingly we are not too jet-lagged. During our 12 hour stop in Los Angeles, we managed to check in our luggage early and go into town. We went to Santa Monica beach. Proof here below with this photo of a very cool surfer ;)                                   We arrived in Sydney at 10 am on Thursday. We're couchsurfing and our host couldn't be home until 6pm, so... [Lire la suite]
