We are in the middle of our shakedown (honeymoon) trip with our Bushtracker - picked up early February. We have been out to Bourke and down to Broken Hill and then on to South Australia. Thanks to the advice of a number of Boggers on places to go and where to stay we have enjoyed a great trip so far – even better than we imagined.

We met up with friends in South Australia and have just spent nine beautiful days visiting their home on Kangaroo Island. If you haven’t been to KI may we suggest you do it soon. It is still an unspoilt wilderness. We have walked with the sea lions on the beach, given way to the penguins as they head for their burrows at night, talked with and fed the wallabies in the front yard, watched the NZ fur seals frollick on the rocks, observed the koalas and the most beautiful blue wrens in the trees, +++++ The scenery is spectacular and there are miles of beaches of fine white sand and crystal clear water in varying shades of turquoise and blue – and rarely another person in sight. The fishing and crabbing were laid on, the water is so clear we could watch the crabs climbing into the pots. And 50+cm King George Whiting are real!

We now fully understand why our friends have settled on KI – our nine days were very hectic and not enough. We did make time to poke our heads into the KI Development Board and say a quick hello to Angie. Unfortunately we were not able to take up the offer to catch up with Ivan as well. Thanks Angie, hopefully next visit.

We are back on the mainland adjusting to having other people around and will be heading back to our van tonight – hope she didn’t miss us too much. We feel very fortunate to be able to be travelling Australia as we are, we really do live in a magnificent country.

Cheers from two of the lucky few.
Ren and Judy
