Australia 2010-11

Our first idea was to rent a camper, because our camper-trip through the USA was so fantastic. But the rental price for a camper in Australia was over 200 dollars per day, too high for our budget so we choose to bike instead. My good friend Ross had a good mountain bike that we could borrow, and we bought a bike for Suzi and a trailer for the kids. Besides that we bought everything else, bike-bags, tent, sleeping-bags, therma-rest, cooking gear and so on. It took a week to sort everything out, and then we were off on our first bike trip as a family.

Some pictures of our trip:


First camp, Australia here we come!


Only entertainment besides a few toys, was this PlayStation, with games, movies and it even had internet connection.



Many hours were spent on the beach, as our cycling route went mostly along the coastline.

Birds were chased and so were the kids!


Here we got separated and only found each other after an hour, a long hour…
