We went back to where it all started, where Dixie and I met! Dixie was travelling around
Australia, living out of his Troop Carrier and I was in town supporting a friend doing the Busselton Iron Man. A conversation was struck between us at the Esplanade Hotel and well the rest is history!
Busselton holds a special place in our hearts and we decided to return for a family holiday. Busselton is a small coastal town set on the calm waters of the Geographe Bay south of Perth. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoors with plenty of cycle paths, beaches and the locals are very friendly.Read More »
Just because you are travelling don’t let it be an excuse not to exercise. Sometimes we are sightseeing all day so I like to incorporate exercise into our day’s activities. When we are having a down day I exercise first thing in the morning. Personally, I find it a great way to start the day!
There are plenty of things you can do to keep up your exercise routine while you are away. Here are something of the things I do to stay fit and healthy on the road. Read More »
Potters Gorge has had a bit of a bush makeover (if there is such a thing) since the last time we were there. It has been upgraded to have nice large campsites, paths, shelters, BBQs and a mountain bike pump track.
The name Potters Gorge is a little misleading as there is no gorge in the area. The campground is actually situated along the banks of Wellington Dam. Read More »
I have never used Airbnb. I often find myself on their website looking at all the different accommodation options but I have never made a booking. Well that was until this weekend. Ok so it wan’t a true Airbnb experience, we were not sharing a house with the owners. Instead we had 70 acres of land to ourselves!Read More »
Recently I watched a documentary on David Gulpilil an aboriginal actor. Something he said has stuck with me. “In the blackfella world we share everything. Everything is ours. In the whitefella world it is private property and everything belongs to someone else.” He went on to say “Blackfella world you have nothing, a spear and your ready to go. Whitefella have too much junk.”
It got me thinking about how we live our life. In our culture we collect things. My house is full of books that I have read once and will probably never pick up again. Vases that never hold flowers, ornaments and other dust collectors.Read More »

My first time travelling solo was on a Contiki tour through Europe. I wanted to get a taste of Europe before I starting working as an Au Pair in England. Contiki is a group tour targeted at 18-35’s. Rumours were flying that Contiki is all about people getting drunk and performing crazy antics.
I made myself a promise, I was not going to party all night and sleep all day on the bus. I didn’t want to miss the scenery as we drove across Europe, I wanted to soak it all in. But was this a promise I could keep?Read More »

A blank page in the diary for the weekend was staring at me! Do we stay home and get some chores done or go camping? Before you know it we were getting ready to spend a night in the bush.
“One night pack light” says Dixie. Is that even possible when you have children? I tried my best to just take the essential items.Read More »
The children were playing happily so I snuck on the computer to check my emails. Sitting in my inbox was an email to say that one of my readers had nominated Let Me Be Free for the Travel Blog Awards held by Mr Promocode. I was blown away to discover that some thought my content was worthy of a nomination.

We have camped with our children since they were infants. I must admit I was nervous when we strapped our little bundle of joy into the car and headed down a rough dirt track into the Aussie bush. We camped in a remote location with no amenities just plenty of fresh country air and tall trees to give us shade. Read More »
