Learning on the road

The vastness and diversity of Australia is best appreciated not by plane-hopping between cities and popular beach destinations, but by driving. And, of course, making plenty of stops on the way!

All I needed was this moment …

You no longer stop to breathe and take in each step, but rather race ahead of yourself on to the next task and the next, stopping only for brief, unsatisfying sleep before diving straight into a new day of endless, monotonous tasks.

Swimming lessons in the bush in winter – crazy?!

When I told a few friends that we were going to be moving four hours away from the beach, they all looked at me, shocked! And simply said that they wouldn’t think that I would last being so far away from the sweet, soft sand and the clear pale blue water that you get at the Alley on a good day!
