    Krispy Kreme Baby
    I was about 8 months pregnant and all I wanted to eat was donuts, i was obsessed. Unfortunatly at the time Brisbane (where I live) did not have Krispy Kremes, and try as i might dreamy donuts and all the rest just did not cut it, although i must say 7-11 did tide me over for a few days. It all came to a head at about 2am when my partner found me sitting in the dark in the lounge... read more

    Getting There
    The most exciting thing for me is that today I am picking up my Hippie Camper Van in Christchurch, NZ so that I can finally see all of South Island, close up and very personal.  This has been a dream of mine for almost two years, finally come true!  I appreciate the flexibility that will be mine with a home on four wheels which lets me cook or eat whenever I want and allows me the comfort of my own... read more

    My New Zealand Dream
    I've always dreamed of going overseas, even if it was only as far as New Zealand. Finally, an opportunity comes about; my boyfriend's cousin is getting married in Auckland. Before the wedding, my boyfriend and I plan to travel the South Island, in which I can only imagine what the scenery looks like. Pictures, I am sure, would not do it justice. Doing this by campervan would be a great adventure, as we can go at our own pace, and stay where we... read more

    Beaches from Brazil to Buenos Aires & Beyond!
    In 2006/2007 I decided to shake off my London city life and exploremy passion for photography and had an epic adventure of documenting the infinite natural wonders and fascinating inhabitants of Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand. The travel was punctuated mixing cocktails at the iconic Bondi beach Icebergs restaurant and a season as a “lifty” at the world-class Coronet Peak ski field, New Zealand. I documented the entire trip here on my personal blog of images, writing and video podcasts: time I... read more

    Byron Bay & Dreamworld
    It was 17 September and I was waiting on my camper I rented from Hippie Camper. The main reason why I hired from them was that I only heard good story’s and the price was very good as well. It didn’t take too long before the camper arrived and the man from the company, a really friendly person and a great sense of humour, gave me some instructions on how to use the vehicle. After a short time I was... read more

    Great Ocean Road
    This was our first trip within Australia. We went for 10 days during the Easter Holidays to the Great Ocean Road with our super Hippie Camper. It was just perfect. Driving on the left was first a bit strange, but you get used to it very fast. We had the perfect time there. The weather was stunning, always just sun and no rain. We have seen so much within those 10 days and we will never forget this time!  read more

    Hippie Camper - Helping Make the World a Smaller Place!
    My friend Shantelle and I recently traveled to Byron Bay from Sydney in a Hippie Camper. We went out one night in Byron and I approached these two guys that I thought were cute. We got talking and I noticed from their accent that they weren’t Aussie. I’m Canadian so I asked them if they were Canadian… YEP! They’re brothers from Toronto, which is where Shantelle is from. We got talking more and I discovered that they had spent many... read more
