This year we did a quick 7 day road trip down the South Coast of Western Australia. We hired a Britz Camper van and headed south from Perth without any agenda. Margaret River was our favourite spot, with a good mix of warmer weather and lots to see and do. Peaceful Bay near Albany was beautiful, and we scored a lobster from the guys are the Peaceful Bay store. We weren’t setup to go off-road, so we stayed on the bitumen for the most part and we still feel there is plenty we need to come back again to see.
After hearing about the 1 in 100 year flood that has come through central Australia, we wanted to go and have a look at how the landscape has changed. The Simpson Desert has had 430mm of rain this year in four months, compared to the average of 270mm per year.
We hope you enjoy it and we’d love it if you could leave a comment if you do.
As you may know, Hannah was only six when we started travelling, and she wasn’t as keen to talk as much as Leah. So she did her own little dance, which a couple of years later has ended up in this video.
This is one of our favourite videos we have done, and we had so much fun with the kids in the rice fields. We gave them some chips and green tea which the really liked. At first it was a little hard to communicate but we found that a game was the best way to cross the fun bridge.
Most of the country in Vietnam is covered in rice fields, so it was good to be able to have a close look at how the rice is grown.
Most rice farms have a cow or a bullock to help plough the ground.
