“This is to confirm that our moving team is scheduled to arrive at your address on Monday between 8-10am to collect your belongings for shipping.”. This message popped up on my phone this morning.
Oops, that is an sms with impact. Not that we did not expect it, I did book it after all. But it does make it sound very final. Are we ready yet is a question we hear a lot lately. What, mentally, physically? Continue reading “Ready for shipment”
With our departure from Australia coming closer and since we gathered so many things in the past three years that we lived here, we figured it would be time for a new typical Australian experience. A garage sale!

A car driving into a house, that is one of those things that you hear or read about in the news, not something that happens to you in real life, right? Continue reading “Waking up with a bang”
Last weekend the 12 hour dusk till dawn Melbourne White Night Festival was on again and since we really enjoyed looking at the lights, the artists and listening to the musicians last year we planned a Saturday night in the town again. Continue reading “White Night Melbourne 2017”
Having landed in Hobart the day before, and having spent the night at the local airport hotel, we took it slow in the morning. Partly because this was vacation after all, partly because this was the last night for a week and a half that we would have a proper bed, partly because this was the last time in a week and a half that there would be a TV, but mostly because we could only pick up our camper-van at 12:30h.
But even the nicest budget hotel room gets boring after a while, so we packed our bags, dropped them off at reception and went for a walk.

Kai and Luka have settled in really well, our house is filled with all that we need and more, I know my way around the neighborhood. Time for me to broaden my horizon – so I started looking for a job. Number 30 of our 38 things to do in Australia. A bit of a bumpy road.

Hi my name is Luka, I moved to Australia about a year ago from now. I’ll introduce myself now so I love swimming, dancing and singing. I play the flute.
I moved to Australia because my dad [Oliver] needed to go for his work in Melbourne. Continue reading “Introducing Luka”
As we posted previously we are considering a change of schools for our oldest. Kai was already bouncing when we first saw a glimps of him at the first ultra sound and that has not changed a bit after a came out. He just loves being active, so a sports school is right up his alley. Continue reading “Changing schools – part 2”
My family and I went bowling. We went there because we have a little bucket where we put money in if we had a amazing/perfect day. We spent 40 dollars from the bucket to go bowling.
First my brother [Kai] had a go, I went second my mum went third and my dad went last.
When we got there we needed to wait an our to go to our Bowling line because that time there where no lines free. But we where lucky because time zone was right behind the Bowling building. I got a rabbit. It is white with a blue bow tied around her neck.
Anyways enough talking about that lets go back to the Bowling lines. So then we got some quick food from Woolworths. Then we went back to the bowling building. So first it was Kai’s turn then it was my turn each kid/adult got two balls.
I couldn’t believe that I was better than my mum! At the start mum was better than I was but then it started to change. My mum was also very good I didn’t think I would be better than her. If you went bowling with your mum would you believe that?
Although we spent less then 24 hours in Wilsons Promontory, which did not really end the way we planned it, this place has captured our hearts. And we will return to this most Southern part of mainland Australia. Why? Continue reading “11 reasons to visit Wilsons Promontory”
