The Van

Despite what you may be thinking I'm not still stuck in Viet Nam somewhere around Hoi An - I'm now actually living the high life as certifiable Trailer Trash! That's right Myra and I are living it large in the back of a Mercedes Sprinter van; we'd always hoped that the dream would come true one day but never really imagined that it would!

We now spend our evenings driving around Australian suburbia scoping out potential caravan 'sites' while trying not to attract too much attention. Unfortunately our really loud 'BEEP BEEP! Danger Will Robinson' vehicle reversing warning noise is a bit of a give away!

In fact we're now real bottom of the barrel hobos - huddled in the back of our van, parked outside some random Aussie's house 'borrowing' some of their Wi-Fi to update our blogs and send some mails.

So, unbelievably after nearly six months on the road we're down to our final two weeks or thereabouts before touching down in New Zealand. As some of you may have noticed my blog has been a little bit patchy over the last couple of weeks (ahem!) so hopefully I'll be able to add a few extra entries to it over the coming weeks to include some of the amazing adventures you didn't hear about in the original run - some sort of Director's Special Overlong Edition or something.

There'll be plenty of tall tales to follow of the adventures we have in our travelling squat - will I decide to get a mullet and settle down in the country music capital of Australia, Tamworth? - will Myra decide to dress up in a Bovine one-piece jumpsuit and drive us to Moobal? Stay tuned to find out more!
