On the Cubango River

Heading east from Ongula, on a surprisingly good road, we stopped for the night at a lodge on the river that forms part of the Namibian/Angolan border. The Rio Cubango rises in Angola's highlands and heads south-east to form that... Continue Reading →

FNQ 2 – Port Douglas and Daintree Village

A subtle sunset and a lovely meal on a tropical veranda in Port Douglas ended a great day - although I later realised that maybe I was a bit too close to the water's edge when taking this image, having... Continue Reading →

That was 2017, part 1

Way back at the beginning of January 2017 I was planning to be diligent about posting on my blog this year, envisioning at least one post a month. That idea fell by the wayside rather quickly. In my defence, we... Continue Reading →

Norseman and Fraser Range Station

Day Four of our cross-country trip began slowly, as our planned destination was only 100 km away. We began the day with a bit of exploring around Norseman, a much smaller gold-mining town that marks the beginning/end of the Eyre... Continue Reading →

Crossing Australia with golf as a distraction

Just over a year ago (yes, I know, I'm a bit behind), we began our trip driving across Australia from Perth to Canberra. Wave Rock, one of Western Australia's iconic tourist attractions, was our first overnight stop. Not one of the... Continue Reading →
