Rockhampton: Crocodiles and Cows

Australian Road

From Harvey Bay to Rockhampton It was already 9p.m. when we returned from our day trip to Fraser Island. We decided to stay directly in Hervey Bay near the water where we could find a public restroom. The next morning was absolutely awesome. Once again we had our brekkie near the water which will probably never […]

Fraser Island Surprise

Fraser Island Wreck

It was worth a visit and good to have a walk, but not as stunning as I expected. Mary […]

Village Life: Bakery on Wheels

Village Bakery

Bakery on Wheels. Can it get any better?   Life is so much fun when living in a tiny town. It seems to me that many people, including myself, do not know much about specific things in different countries and sometimes not even their own because the countries are too big to know the details. […]

…leaving my comfort zone within my loft :D

Many people come up to me and ask me all kinds of questions concerning my travels AND I love encouraging everyone to leave, travel and discover other cultures. It is quite easy to give suggestions within ones own comfort zone. For me it seems important and healthy to leave ones own normal routine to get […]

Just something to look back in the evening that will satisfy you! […]
