Here we are now, all wrapped up in our sleeping bags, holding a cup of tea in order to get warm hands. Not quite the picture we had in mind when moving to Melbourne, Australia.

I thought that we brought the sleeping bags so that we can go camping every weekend. No piece of me is even considering to crawl into a tent right now. Although that might only be because we do not own a tentipi that are built for extreme expeditions and come with a firebox.

Turns out that it has been the coldest July in 20 years here. But it is already August now!

All part of the expat experience?


Mother, wife, explorer and loving the outdoors. We recently moved to Australia, so lots to explore here. We are keeping a blog about our experiences of moving and living on a different continent as a family.

  1. Bloß keine Erkältung holen, sondern Vitamine essen. Außerdem: Ein Schluck Rum im Tee vor dem Schlafengehen wärmt. Vielleicht sogar mit Schlagsahne – das hilft dem Winterspeck, mehr zu werden.
    Wir haben hier gerade 35 bis 40 Grad als Voraussage für die nächsten Tage. Hatten allerdings gestern nur 13 Grad. Wechselbäder sollen den Kreislauf anregen.
    LG H.-W. und M.-D.,
