NSW - Newcastle

Well, here we are home again after twenty one months on the road. We love our caravan and life on the road and could quite happily keep travelling around Australia to see more of this stunning country. However, the reality is that we need to get back to work and save some more money for our future.

It is wonderful to be home catching up with our beautiful family and friends. The hardest thing about being on the road was the fact that I missed my family. We flew home several times while away which helped.

While in Newcastle we parked our caravan on our eldest daughters’ property at Lochinvar and had a magnificent view over the valley. (One of the best views from our van on the trip.) We have seen so many beautiful towns and cities and feel very contented returning home to Newcastle. This city has everything we love - beaches, lakes, waterways, wonderful restaurants and much more.
Just a few statistcs from our trip:-
Total kilometres - 64,800
Total fuel - 8,165 litres
Total fuel cost - $12,044.00
Total caravan park accommodation - $13,567.00 which averaged out at $22.00 per day.

We are now off to Tasmania for a month before we start work again on March 2nd. Mike is going in to practice with Mary Bourke at Vitality Junction Chiropractic. We are looking forward to catching up with many of our former patients and meeting many more new ones.
