The return of the gypsies

Melbourne from a car window

We were in Melbourne for four days and spent a few hours of each of those days in the car (between the caravan park and the wedding venue, to and from the airport to pick up/drop off a friend, and visiting other friends). We really like our new car, and it is now much more pleasurable driving in traffic knowing we can accelerate at the same pace as the cars around us! We are also a lot more confident getting around Melbourne, with only a few minor incidents with missing turns and exits.

We had a great time catching up with friends and family in Melbourne, Geelong and Castlemaine, and are now in Bendigo. One of the great things about travelling is being able to visit people and take time for relationships, rather than being caught up in the busyness of work.

A quick update on the way to Melbourne

After a couple of long days of driving we were able to reward ourselves with a day in the high country in Victoria. We spent yesterday in Mt Buffalo National Park. We did a few short walks (including to the Dicksons' Falls!!) and then stopped in to have a look at a lake. An older couple were putting their kayak in, so we thought 'why not?'. A few minutes later we were paddling around the beautiful calm lake enjoying the birds and the reflections. Magical.

Decked out and almost ready to go

The car is ready, the van's getting some spring work done tomorrow, I have a day of presentations and portfolios to mark and then we'll be ready to leave on Saturday morning! We're getting excited and are looking forward to hitting the road again.
