First things first – we feel we owe an apology to our faithful blog followers for our lack of posts in 2018. Last year was a busy year for us. Trinity finished off her Masters studies and headed back to full-time work, and James was very fortunate to receive a promotion. Sure, we still headed… Read More Walk-around our Patrol Wagon + some news!
You know those weeks where it all just feels a bit too much? You’ve been putting in the overtime, there’s work that needs to be done on the house, the lawn’s looking a little long… Hands up who else has been feeling a bit like that recently? Losing Trinity’s father a few years ago was… Read More A spontaneous weekender: Thallon & Nindigully
If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you probably caught a glimpse of my recent #vanlife adventure in an Apollo campervan. As it was a short-notice trip to visit family and friends James couldn’t get the time off work to join me. So, I spent 6 days touring Victoria on a fly-in,-fly-out solo trip.… Read More Tips for Travelling Solo
As keen campers who love taking our dog with us wherever we can, we draw a lot of inspiration from other travellers doing just that. The idea behind our “Cruising with Canines” series was to share the stories of some intrepid dog parents doing what others would claim was too difficult. These guys are out… Read More Cruising with Canines: Meet Collecting Bliss
The 2018 Ultimate Campers Queensland Muster was one of those events that we could have quite easily filed in the “too hard” basket. The timing was terrible! We could have easily let my study get in the way. I (Trinity) was finishing final assignments for my Masters degree until late Friday night. Besides, we’d only… Read More Ultimate Campers 2018 QLD Muster: Our Recap
It’s no secret that we love travelling with our own dog, Mister Dog (fondly known as plain old Dog to his mates). We take him on most of our camping trips, to cafes on lazy weekends at home, and even opt to stay at dog-friendly Airbnb’s when we’re looking for a little more luxury when… Read More Cruising with Canines: Meet Sparkys on the Loose

In desperate need of a break after an emotionally draining few weeks, we packed our bags and headed off to the Sunshine Coast for the Australia Day weekend. We were in search of a dog beach, op shops (we’re avid bargain hunters), good food, and some much needed R&R. Well, Sunny Coast, you certainly did… Read More Is this the Sunshine Coast’s best Dog Beach?
Keen to kick 2018 off with a bang, we booked a weekend away at Wave Hill Station near Grafton in early January. We found the farm stay via Airbnb. Keen to stay in a cabin rather than the tent to avoid the sweltering summer heat, their cute Dingo Cottage looked like just the place we… Read More Wave Hill Station Farm Stay
Some of the best camping memories are created around a campfire. Toasting marshmallows, cooking a meal, and sharing a story or two. However, an increasing number of campsites are now restricting campfires to fire pits – whether be existing ones on site or portable ones you can take along yourself. Keen to get… Read More Review: VicOffroad Folding Fire Pit + Grill
