... road we took went through green mountains, with sheep and cows and not much else. I think that for about an hour, we maybe saw 10 other cars. The road was windy, but it was peaceful to really be in the middle of nowhere. It was also really neat to cross multiple one lane bridges.

“A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.” - Edward Abbey I thought about throwing Crimea in there as well, but that is probably enough alliteration for one title. After the friends reunion, I took off in the coolest camper van with the Halbergs. It makes North American RV's look excessive with its table, sleeping space for 4, a food ...

After a good sleep, we woke at a reasonable hour and packed up our gear. Today we were heading back to the car, with a side trip to Lake Man bivvy.

... better at pricing our meals we can't afford booze! Which isn't the worst thing.

Although its mind numbing, by budgeting and planning I know we can easily get through. We have a reasonable time frame (minimum 4 months, set by them) and therefore a leaving date. I know if we plan days off in ...

    Lovely staff, friendly motel. Great for the kids and I. I could have stood slightly thicker walls though. It's a drag when you have to wait for your neighbours on both sides to go to sleep before you can....:-(
