What’s big, white and furry and found in outback Australia?

These  questions are being fired at us from the back of the car. Kai is reading out loud from a book that we got at the library. We are all sitting in the car, as if we are ready to enjoy our summer vacation, but the car is not packed with our camping gear. Instead, we are on our way to Scienceworks for a day trip. Where I normally have no problem finding our next camping location, this time I am struggling a bit. Things are not the way we know them.

We planned to travel to the Great Ocean Road, but we did not book anything yet, since we have two new circumstances that we are not familiar with. For starters, temperatures can easily get above 40°C here, camping in a small tent does not sound very attractive in that heat. Then there are bush fires, currently still an uncontrolled one on the Great Ocean Road. But also towards the East there are threats, so we are not sure.

However, what actually changed our mind about not leaving yet, is the weather report on the radio that predicts rain for the coming two days. Which is strange, because that is the only factor that we are familiar with!

And if you are curious about the headline of this post: It is a very lost polar bear.




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.
