The beginning

This purchase heralds the beginning of our next adventure. Fiat Ducato home sweet home!


We left Bellingen one month ago (gracefully and with the help of many friends, thankyou) and many tales have unfolded to get us here.
Today waking up and looking out at our new/old very old van posing against the old, very old barns i realise its sinking in. I am here, I really am here, in the warmth of my German parents home preparing to tour Europe for the next months. It sure is memory making time. I endeavour to keep myself creatively inspired and wordsmithing over this time. I hope you enjoy the journey with us! May we all travel our lives with ease, good humour and the courage to meet what comes.
