Moving houses and Hahndorf

August 29, 2009

We had to change houses and decided to rent a car since we gathered a lot of things and got a good deal for a car. So after moving all our stuff we went to Mount Lofty and Hahndorf…the german village…which is really not too german…they even fry the white sausages! But it was a nice trip around Adelaide.

Barossa Gourmet Weekend

August 22, 2009

Dylan, Karin’s former landlord, organised a Vine Tour with two Mini-Buses during the NAB Barossa Gourmet Weekend – apart from the delicious vine tasting the vineries usually also have a band playing and provide some food during this weekend. As expected the Vine tour became more and more fun as we were moving on from one vinery to the next and ended up in a maybe not too decent way…

East Coast – Day Thirty-Two – Cairns…time to say goodbye!

July 28, 2009

This day we had to say goodbye to our beloved Campervan. So we had to clean it and bring it to Apollo…afterwards we checked in at the Beach House Cairns, where we again met Francesco and went to Rhino Bar again to get a nice dinner…

The next day we caught the plane back to Adelaide…the end of our East Coast Holiday…what a nice trip!

East Coast – Day Thirty-One – Cape Tribulation

Nice walk at the beach and exciting (!) boardwalk through the rainforest. Then further to the Cape Tribulation Ice-Cream-Factory and down to Port Douglas.

East Coast – Day Thirty – Cape Tribulation

July 26, 2009

Last sight to see on our holiday: the rainforest up north at Cape Tribulation. We took the barge to the rain forest area and checked in at a camping site near Cape Tribulation.

East Coast – Day Twenty-Nine – Cairns – Great Barrier Reef

July 25, 2009

We went on a one-day sailing cruise out to Green Island where we got an introductionary dive – that was really amazing – big fishes and of course the beautiful corals.

Then we were brought to Green Island. Back on the boat we also saw reef sharks…nice – only the weather could have been a bit better that day…but at least we had sunshine during the dive!

In the evening we enjoyed a really god and amazing cheap dinner at the Rhino Bar!

East Coast – Day Twenty-Eight – Cairns

July 24, 2009

This day we only did sunbathing…at Palm Cove near Cairns. Had a nice lunch at the beach and enjoyed the sun!
