The PACKING bit of the trip does my head in every time! And it’s not actually the packing! I’m the thinker out of Gerry and I. I work out what I actually NEED to wear each day. I count my undies and socks etc. Plus, I don’t mind using the app “PackPoint”, it doesn’t make some crazy suggestions but you can just cancel them out.

Gerry on the other hand usually pulls everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, out of her cupboard, piles it all up on the bed and then makes smaller piles of ‘maybes’, and a pile of ‘If I can fit it’ and a small discarded pile. Continue reading “PACKING…”

Camper Van Plans

The other night we had to discuss some prep for “Camper Vanning”. We’ve used #Driveaway for this trip and they have hooked us up with #mightycampers. (Cause they were the only option down in Tassie).

And because it’s too hard to get us all in the one place, we smashed messenger again.

At the moment, Sporty is on the window, Posh is in the middle seat and Scary is on the isle and Gerry is across the isle…. if you wanna keep those spots Evoke can check us in… however if you wanna change to row 78 with the crying babies, that can be arranged”.

Posh, “Haha! I’m good with that. Book it in Eddie!!” Continue reading “Camper Van Plans”

Firstly, we forgot how much fun we have travelling and how many stories/memories we seem to create out of it AND more importantly every other travel blog I’ve read is pretty mmmm BORING!  They never seem to capture the language barriers and the problems that seem to occur with simple cultural differences.   Like stabbing your sushi with chop sticks… until recently I had no clue that it was considered rude.  Sorry Japan, I’ve been insulting you for years!

Travel Tip #1 – Travel Insurance

Travel tip #1  (and quote from Clarkey) –

Get travel insurance, you need travel insurance!

Quote – “If you die overseas, it costs a bomb to get your body back home. You’re better off getting cremated and flown home FedEx or by post. SO you’ll be dead and your family will be broke, so yes you need it”!

And after THAT scooter ride in Bali… (the one where Steph miraculously kept all of her skin) … YES you need it!

JUST for the occasions when things happen like Clarkey nearly ploughing through a chain link fence.
