  • House Sitting in Holmview, Gold Coast

    Another house & pet sitting assignment has just started and this time we have two Dogs & two Bearded Dragons to care for. The dragons might sound a little more exotic and dangerous than dogs, but you’d be mistaken. The Bearded Dragons, called Maccas & KFC are so placid and really take care of themselves. […]

  • House Sitting Mika in Brighton

    When you travel as often as we do it really limits you to have pets of your own. House & Pet Sitting is our way of getting some animal love and care in our souls. These past 6 weeks here in Brighton with Mika, a long-haired German Shepherd dog has been fuel for the soul. […]

  • Toyota LC – Rear Camping Fitout DIY (Bed & Drawers)

    The idea was for Moni & I to be able to sleep in the back of the Landcruiser when camping out. Of course, you can buy those sliding drawers and kits to put in the back, but I wanted something that I could build and more customizable. I’ve fitted her out in the back with […]

  • Wivenhoe Dam, Lake Wivenhoe & Cormorant Bay

    Today we went out for a drive. House sitting in Warner is close to Wivenhoe Lake and a very pleasant drive through the D’aguilar State Forest & Mount Glorious with views to Mount Nebo and the Western Window Lookout. We’d driven across the Wivenhoe Dam before but never stopped for a look around, this time […]

  • D’aguilar State Forest & Mount Glorious, Mount Nebo and the Western Window Lookout

    Our first stop was at the Westridge Lookout and you can see why from the awesome views. Next up we did a short walk in D’aguilar forest. It was only short due to the signs prohibiting entry due to the severe bush fire threat. But as you can see, it would be a stunning forest […]

  • Bush Fires & House Sitting near Casino NSW

    Wow, what a wonderful house & pet sit we have just completed. Considering the devastating bush fire situation in NSW and other states in Australia, I think we were very fortunate that our latest house & pet sit went well and the owners have returned to their beloved pets. At one stage, we had two […]

  • A Quick Stop at the Yatala Pie Restaurant

    I can’t believe that even whilst living on the Gold Coast we never ventured to the Yatala Pie shop just off the Pacific Motorway at exit 38, we would have driven past at least 100 times. So today we had nothing planned for snacks and with hunger setting in we spontaneously pulled off the M1 […]

  • Road Trip to Ballina, Lennox Head & Byron Bay

    This road trip was a spur of the moment decision, we just felt like a coastal drive. From Lismore, we headed to Ballina. One of the BIG icons that are quite the thing around Oz is the Big Prawn at Ballina. It pretty much caught us by surprise luckily Moni was fast with her camera […]

  • Getting Hippy with it in Nimbin

    Nimbin has certain known characteristics to it. It’s a full-on Hippy town where smoking pot is an everyday thing, amongst other things. Not really my scene one bit, but as we’re house sitting close by it was time for a visit. It was not planned I might add, we went out to see the Channon […]

  • The Living Desert and Sculptures at Broken Hill

    A strange title in a way really for this sanctuary just a few kilometres drive from Broken Hill center. I’m not sure what is living out here but I guess that’s for each of us to discern… There are 12 sculptures on display and to walk around takes about 45 minutes more or less depending […]

    Day … 14th September 2019 Sounds like a tongue in cheek spin on words and so it is. The Broken Heel weekend is an annual event held in Broken Hill.
