    Freedom Travelling Dreams
    My husband and I always thought that one day we could travel around New Zealand in a campervan. Maybe we will be able to one day, but unless we are lucky enough to win this then I cannot see our Freedom Travelling Dreams coming to fruition in the next few years!   read more

    Bush Surf n Sand on Flinders
    Just out of College, three close girlfriends, just enough money to buy a flight to Flinders Island and hire a campervan. For two weeks we blissfully beach-hopped and bush-walked our way around this fabulous Island. We marvelled in the clear water and beautiful sand, the wildlife and interesting people. We noted the differences at each beach along the way and laughed at washing in sea-water and nivea moisturiser for two weeks. Ah the joy of holiday freedom and a campervan... read more

    My dream is to grab my 'chicky girl' as I affectionately like to call her (My dearest friend) from the NT in this glam new hippie camper, she's struggling with loss and pounding to be free, exactly like me, with this fancy shuttle of fun and 28 days we will be adding colourful pictures to our life, making the most of every page of our life, together, and right here is my chance, to just roam with my girl and... read more

    aotearoa New Zealand
    I'm planning a trip to NZ with my mates, we are hiring a campervan and driving around the south island of NZ with no set itinerary. That is what we love about being able to travel around Australia and NZ. We are not confined to tours, and can do whatever we want, and stay in beautiful caravan parks. We hope to visit the Glaciers, and go snowboarding in Queenstown. We would love to visit Milford sound and see the beautiful... read more

    We iot married and decided that due to finances we would hire a campervan and have a quite,relaxing honeymoon.WRONG !!!!The van we had chosen was double booked,so we had to take a much older and smaller one.Firstly we have 5 kids between us,so organising them was a disaster to start with .They all whinged and whined about being left with my aunt.She runs a tight ship like boot camp!!!!At the last minute aunty refused to look after the new puppy ,so... read more

    If only we had a Hippie!
    We flew into Auckland on July the first, The weather was great, but our jetlag the worst! We picked up a rental at a discounted price, The service was friendly and the car ‘quite’ nice. We headed up north passing towns, farms and sheep, - beaches, forests and rivers, with our children asleep! We stayed in Keri Keri enjoying the sites, Adventure-filled days with culinary delights. Then down the island in our ‘slightly-small’ car, A squash and a squeeze, we couldn’t go too far. If only we had... read more
  • Sabrina Bieser (Australia)
    Only to write that it has always been my dream to travel through Australia does not sound special enough to me. Of course it has always been my dream but who actually does not have exactly that dream? So I am gonna start this different. The first thing that comes into my mind when I hear Australia is Amy. It is not beach, warm weather, kangaroos, koala, none of these typical things a foreign person would probably say. It is Amy.  You wonder? Well, I would say... read more

    You travel the world, yet leave your own neighbourhood untouched
    I had not travelled very much, yet each and everytime I had, it was overseas. This time I had been to Morocco, it was a beautiful trip, full of colour, culture and vibrance. At family dinner my uncle asked me how my trip was, naturally I was full of excitement as I told him about my travels. When I finally finished talking, his response was not what I expected. I thought he would be thrilled, as excited as me that I... read more

    Across the country and back in Thirty Days
    Perth to Queensland with our little family and my sister and brother in law.   We made up our itinerary as we went, a few must do's were on our list, but the most memorable events were the ones that we didn't plan for.   We could have done without everyone getting tonsillitus but it is something we laugh about now.  Whales at the Australian Bight, Rollercoasters, Waterfalls, Big Pineapples, eating Beef Jerky at 3 in the morning and salivating... read more
