Over a year ago we were driving through the streets of Manly when Aaron asked whether I would ever want to travel around Australia long term instead of just two weeks here and there.
I’d never really thought about it, but how could I say no. A couple of days later, Aaron was researching different vans and what would suit us best.
We ended up with our safe haven, the Mercedes Sprinter Van- MWB.
We could not of survived the trip without having our high roof, it prevented many arguments and sore backs as well as giving us loads of storage.
Aaron had just finished studying before the trip began while I was still in the middle of my course,
so I opted for studying by distance and learning from the road for the next 5 months.
Being a Picean, we chose to travel around the coastline of QLD, NSW and VIC and had everything needed for our little home to function, bar the toilet.
We spent our days dependent on mother nature. Rainy days were filled with seasons of suits, burning popcorn and water colouring as we tried to discover our creative side.
Every other day was spent at the beach, collecting shells, searching for nearby waterfalls and rock pools and exploring the town.
