The school holidays will be over tomorrow!!!!!!! I am so annoyed that school is starting again because I just got used to the fact of being in pajamas all day. My holidays have been the best holidays I have ever had so far! And I do not want to start school again! I mean I am happy that I get to see my friends again and that my birthday party is only one week away. But I am not ready to go back to school and continue learning. Over the holidays we went swimming with dolphins and seals! Continue reading “School Holidays are Nearly Over!!!!”
They say that time flies when you’re having fun, and this has certainly been the case with our stay here in Australia. I woke up this morning only to realize that there is little over three months left of our Australian Adventure and it is time we seriously get on with preparing our departure.
Next to the obvious stuff, like flights, accommodation, schools, jobs and so on, there is also all the sh…tuff we have collected since moving here. We had considered sending some furniture back via container ship, but in the end decided against it. There is still enough of that sitting in storage in the Netherlands, and I don’t think our house there will be big enough to cater for all of that.
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”
On the Sunday the 8th of April, my family and I went camping at Mornington Peninsula. Before we got to our campsite Kai started nagging us about when we would get there which started to get on my nerves. When Kai finally stopped nagging us we arrived at the campsite. I was so glad!

New Zealand is an amazing country and has been on my ‘wanna go to list’ for a very long time. We finally went and got a taste of this country and it tastes like more!
If you are still planing to go or are still dreaming of going one day, this post might be a good start. Or for good memories if you have been already. Anyway, here is what we did. Continue reading “Itinerary South Island – New Zealand”
Today we reached another mile stone: people from
121 126 different countries have visited our Blog!
If you think that is almost the whole world (as I initially did) you are wrong. There are still
120 115 ‘missing countries’ on the counter. But we are over half the countries now! Wouldn’t it be great if we could manage to have our blog opened in all countries all over the world?
With a weather forecast of 42 degrees today it was promising to become a hot Melbourne Day today. Not the ideal circumstances for a tennis tournament, but Kai signed up so there was no way out. How did he/we survive a day on the tennis court? Continue reading “Surviving a Hot Melbourne Tennis Day”
Our first stop in Thailand today was Koh Samui, a small island towards the South of the country. It is a prime vacation spot, with kilometer-long beaches and the hotel-chains to match. Tourism is the biggest industry here, followed by coconuts.
As this island does not have a pier to dock cruise ships, this was to be our first (and only) tender port on this trip, meaning that the ship would anchor in the harbour and the guests (and some of the crew) would be brought to shore in smaller boats. In this case, the boats were provided by a local company, as they were bigger than the ones carried by the Mein Schiff 1.
The last stop of our cruise in Malaysia was Kuala Lumpur, the capitol and largest city of this country.
Well, I say Kuala Lumpur, but what I actually mean is that we docked in Port Klang, roughly 50km away from the center of KL. And even that is misleading, as the cruise terminal in Port Klang is located in the middle of nowhere. The only chance to get away from there is either one of the pre-arranged tours from the boat, or taking one of the numerous taxis waiting there for you.
