Our Epic Adventure: 6 Weeks in Australia

aus intro

Wondering what’s up with the radio silence around here? I’ve been itching to write and share …. but just haven’t had a spare moment to do so between end-of-school events with the kids, packing, and then actually doing the travelling bit!

And, now — yes! — we are here in Australia for our epic adventure. It’s something we’ve been wanting to do for some time now. But as you can imagine, it takes a lot of planning and saving to actually pull it off. It’s almost surreal to believe that it’s all happening now.

Things I’ve been focused on and plan hope to write about include:

I will have a couple of more quiet days this week and I hope to get in some quality blogging time. Let me know if there is something of particular interest to you that you want to hear about!


  1. What a fantastic adventure! enjoy every moment (or most!) and I can’t wait to read all about it!!!

  2. Amazing! Have an awesome time! looking forward to your posts when you get back.. definitely include on that list a post about food down there! 😀

  3. Australia!?!?! How awesome is that!! Super excited for you and your family. Going there is definitely on my places to travel list, but like you said, it does take a lot of savings and planning to do. With a new one on the way, I don’t see this happening any time soon, but a girl can dream. Wishing you guys have the best time while you’re on your trip. Can’t wait to read more about it!

  4. So, as I read this blog post, I subconsciously gave you an Australian accent… ; )

  5. Wow! I had no idea. How fantastically exciting! I cannot wait to read all about your epic adventure!

  6. Ohhh! Australia has always been on my list of places to visit! I’m kicking myself for not going when I was working in Japan for 2 years! So close, yet so far! Can’t wait to read all about your epic adventure in “Oz” (as my Aussie co-teachers call it). LOL!

  7. Oh my! Australia, wow, that is my dream vacation! What an amazing holiday and 6 weeks, I am really jealous now. Wishing you and your family a wonderful time.

    • Thanks for the wishes, Dawn! Yes, we feel really fortunate to have the time off. My husband and I will never be millionaires, but we sure will see a lot of the world before we kick the bucket :)

  8. “Long vacation” sounds just about right! Enjoy AUSTRALIA. Wow. :)
