I love this benchtop. It’s a ‘poured concrete’ laminate. It’s also over my budget.
I tried, I really did to be good but after we dragged a different (cheaper) style to the car I just couldn’t go through with it and I know me. I will be pining for this one.
So here she is 😁
Here’s hoping I made the right choice.
Now time to reallocate some funds. We don’t need new tyres right? 💸 #ihadtohaveit
Gave the back of the car a good clean and moved our 95L fridge freezer from the caravan back into the back of the car. Because we do not have a secondary battery hard wired to our tow vehicle, we have a system in place to keep the fridge freezer going 24hrs a day. So when we are on the move, it is plugged into the 12v socket located in the back of the car just beside the fridge. When we are pulled over, it is then unplugged and plugged into our ArcPak (Deep Cycle AGM Battery) in the footwell of the back seat. The ArcPak is then connected to a 120W foldable solar panel which lays on the front windscreen and that keeps the ArkPak charged. I did not want to hard wire anything just as yet as we are thinking of adding a 300W solar panel to the top of the caravan and having a battery bank set up in the back of the tow vehicle in a concealed area and have the fridge freezer relocated into the caravan in its own dedicated spot with everything connected via anderson plugs... #australia#queensland#coolangatta#caravan#caravanlife#caravanlifestyle#nomads#nomadiclife#travel#explore#adventure#travellingwithkids#waeco#fridge#freezer#12v#arkpak#dometic#setup#roadtrip#ontheroad#viscount#hyundaisantafe
“Are you sick of eating sausages?” So many people we speak to (non-travelling families), have asked us this question. I guess it is based on the long standing short camp trip ⛺️ tradition of a sausage sizzle.
We (like many meat eating Aussies) love a good snag, especially served in bread with onions and tomato sauce for a gold coin donation at Bunnings 🔨 , or cooking your own for a quick lunch. But seriously, with ample time on our hands, and more varied cooking options than at home, eating on the road is often a pure delight!
Many people on the road live and breath their Weber (or Ziggy, let’s not open that can of baked beans), cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner on the barbie, but we have heaps of other options with a four burner stove as well as a full sized oven and grill inside our van, and if we can have a fire 🔥 we love to break out the Dutch oven for a slow cooked curry or pot roast.
Part of the allure of travelling is immersing yourself in local culture, and while travelling within Australia means we may all speak the same language and use the same currency, there is much more to our cultural diversity than beer glass sizes 🍺 (pots, scooters, middys or 9s) and potato cakes.
The Eyre Peninsula is a world renowned fishery🐟🦐🦀🐙, and the dry rocky interior produces beautiful saltbush lamb🐑. Cheeses 🧀 , wines 🍷 , beers 🍺 , local meats 🥩 and fruits 🍉🍓🍒🍑change everywhere you go, and we revel in taking advantage of local produce.
We are not immune to the allure of bangers on the barbie, and there are times when our budget or our tiny freezer means they are cost effective and won’t spoil.
As people who love to cook 👩🍳 and eat good food. We rarely get the chance to eat sausages though we are quite partial to a dirty street pie 🥧. #eatlocal#goodfood#roamsweetroamaus#travellingfamily#biglappers#tawk#justanotherdayinwa#australia#wa#westernaustralia#familytravelsaus#vanlife#therealvanlife#viscount#ohtheplacesyoullgo#notallwhowanderarelost#wikicamps#tourismwa#visitwesternaustralia#destinationwa#australiasnorthwest#cablebeach#cablebeachcaravanpark#broome#broomiesforthewet#visitbroome#arewecrazy#thekimberly#thekimb
Really lacking the motivation lately, to do more on my van in order to see the finish line sometime soon. I cant seem to see my visions happening in real life. I actually listed her for sale, but pulled it down when i realised people wanted to buy her. .
I need to keep reminding myself that she's got potential and little progress is better than none. . .
For now, I'll keep following van insta pages and Pinterest to get my inspiration and keep adding to my vision board. We'll get there, just gotta convince hubby to help me finish!
