The Boat That Kyle Built

Last week I had to drop off Cameron and Kyle to their Grandparents so that David and I could attend the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Its the very first time I have left Cameron and Kyle together with anyone, let alone their Grandparents.

I was very worried – Kyle is our little free spirit child who explores all the time and we have to constantly search for him.

And Cameron is our one who loves to have constant routine and sticks to what he knows – and needs his own personal space.

The Essentials With Paul Wilson

After the Friday night – listening to Dan Barber – we were both excited to be able to attend the Saturday event. It was in a vacant lot between office buildings/hotels. Turned into a “Casual Meeting Place” to learn all about cooking Mexican food. The Essentials with Paul Wilson, something we didn’t know much about but soon realised we were in the right place at the right time- so very glad that Hubby was with me because he LOVES food.

Actually David should have been a chef, the way he can whip up dishes from ingredients that we have, the way he can find a recipe and then adapt it to our Gluten and Sugar Free way of eating, the way he can find ingredients and put them together and they taste amazing. I reckon he would have been a bit like Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsey – not too sure on the language but do know that he would have had a successful restaurant.

Tonight we headed from our Hotel – Rendezvous Hotel – to The National Gallery of Victoria to sit in the Auditorium, to hear a talk about food…It was called “Theatre of Ideas :: In Conversation With Dan Barber

Both David and I had no idea who Dan Barber was….so i quickly googled Dan Barber while we were waiting for it to start. Interesting history. Interesting man!

Melbourne Has A Piece Of My Heart

Melbourne Has A Piece Of My Heart

Melbourne is one of our all time favorite cities, and one we love to visit. Its a special place – its the City where our Two Oldest Son’s went to for basic Navy Training. Its the place where both boys made all of their family super proud with their Navy graduations – oh gosh do my Boys Look good in Navy Uniforms.

And its also where “World Vision” head office is – a place that is very very special to our hearts.

Yes we love Melbourne and we will always will. Even though we haven’t been there since our second son’s navy graduation we can’t wait to get back there.

Mt Ngungun Glasshouse Mountains

I am still sharing our January trips even though we are now in March! Yeah I am so far behind in Blogging our adventures but I figure that I will one day catch up….or maybe we will have too many adventures to ever catch up?

After Our Gympie over night rest stop we stopped in with Davids amazing ex-bosses on the Sunshine Coast, who now are his boss! Confusing hey, yeah that’s my life lately. Well he used to work with them a few years ago, and then when we stopped in and spent the Saturday night with them they were sharing the way their company was moving forward with building new caravans.

Eat Street Market Brisbane

Eat Street Market Brisbane

On the Weekend I had to be in Brisbane for the Saturday and Sunday…I thought about staying somewhere/anywhere with my campervan but I couldn’t find somewhere close enough to Brisbane so I booked a hotel room for the one night. And yeah funny enough I didn’t take any photos of that hotel room but hey never mind…its the weekend that was important.

I was down there for Personal Reasons {something I will share later at the end of this year} and connected with the most amazing people – the weekend was actually really good because I could meet people with my name and not with my website name {they still don’t know that I blog} See I am a really shy person by nature so I don’t tell people that I am blogging unless they already know about it!

And it was a weekend of connecting with people in life, it was so soul satisfying.

Gympie Over night Rest Stop

After we left Hervey Bay, and spent one magical day at Rainbow Beach we bundled up our boys {eating dinner along the way} to stay that night at Gympie Over Night Rest Stop.

It was dark and late when we got there, and that’s not the best way to set up Camp…Because its a bit harder to see a flat spot, and the best spot to park closer to the toilet blocks, but not too close to the road.

Well we got the closer to the toilet blocks right, and it was sorta a flat spot…but I didn’t think about what could fall out of trees above us! Nor did we realise how close we were to to the main roads with all of the truckies going by in the morning {yeah I sure have a crazy story on that one!}

Where Are We Now

Where Are We Now

Our life sure has been full of adventures moving lately…from staying in a caravan park cabin, to book three nights in a Holiday Apartment to now moving into a Fully Furnished Apartment. Did you know that last night we had two apartments in our name, and had access to both of them….to confusing to try and explain that one!

Where Are We Now? We are on the Sunshine Coast, putting into place things for our year 2015 to work out.

This is our inside of the Fully Furnished Apartment – it used to be an apartment that was in the “Holiday” list for the real estate….

Travelling Australia Cheaper

When we had to be on the Sunshine Coast by the weekend {was that only last weekend? gosh time flys}, and we had no Motorhome I was freaked out thinking what were we going to do and where we going to stay.

Silly me – I should have realised that the Universe provides when you ask the right questions. Mind you I am not sure what questions I was asking.

Travelling Australia Cheaper is possible when you ring around those in the know. Thanks to David’s Boss we were able to stay in a Caravan Cabin way cheaper then if we booked it, but we could only stay there for a week.
