We have also been squeezing in as many social catch ups that we can, with loved friends and family, especially for our little boys. Their friends have been nervous about us leaving and we've had a few teary 'byes'. The only thing that feels strange about this whole adventure is why we would drive away from such amazing and close people who make our life amazing. Thank god for Facebook, Skype and phones - we will be hugging the coast so we stay in reception as much as possible.
Our first camping stop (starting today) is Caloundra for 7 days, on the beach. Then Toowoomba for a fortnight, then back to the Gold Coast for a week or maybe two, to catch up with friends and family before we head south on the first part of our spontaneous exploration in this great country of ours. I'll put a calendar widget on this site so you can see where we are roughly planned to be, and will update this blog with our adventures regularly.
