Have Camper, Will Travel!

A travel blog entry by kylie.jase



We've had a busy couple of days here in Perth getting organised after picking up our campervan (who we have affectionately named Moby after the big white whale!).

We were booked to pick "Moby" up at 9.00am and were there on time. Apollo Campervans have a range of campervans including Cheapa Campers, which is what we hired. Basically they're normal Apollo campervans but instead of being 1-3 years old, they're 3-5 years. The difference in ...

We were over the moon and couldn't wait to move into our apartment, which funnily enough had been the very first apartment that we had viewed.

Our apartment block is in the heart of Perth and in a prime location for all the city has to offer. We are surrounded by shops, bars ...

Thyroid gone and life moves on

... a spare parts interpreter it would seem. Funny to see him in a tie, he had to buy one as he certainly didn't own one. No more surfing for him during the week!

On one of our evening walks to the airport I said to Kimbo "isn’t it amazing, you’d think of all these people that arrive from Adelaide, we’d know somebody?" A flight from Adelaide was always landing when we were there. Well bugger me ...
