This blog documents the trials and tribulations of a couple of free spirits who are heading into the wild blue yonder of the red continent. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure that had a soggy start in late January 2013.
Former desk-jockey, glass-half-full chick, adventurous soul, citizen of the world (with trans-Tasman fondness and European roots), tinkerer and crafty bugger. Slow food fan.
The lively half of a mostly awesome combo.
Jack of all trades, problem finder and solutions architect. Travels with a superb assortment of tools and can change a truck tyre. Has been known to rant about the political/economic/fiscal system and their protagonists. Loves a biscuit with his after-lunch coffee.
The two of us have said good-bye to the trappings of urban life to take a good look at this amazing country. With a 4WD truck and 160GB of our favourite music as soundtrack, we intend to cover Oz in freestyle fashion – or at least give it a bloody good try for as long as it’s fun.
