Thomas & Court’s Van Life Part 1
Taking the East Coast one Dominos at a time
In my blog post “6 homes in 5 months”, I mentioned our situation living out of a van, Mr. Squiggle. Mr. Squiggle became our beloved home for 4 weeks while we travelled the East Coast of Australia. We wanted to take our time and do it ‘right’ (our way), taking time to really enjoy all the stops along the coast.
We flew into Cairns, picked up Mr. Squiggle and began an adventure of a lifetime. It’s so surreal to me, a year ago, even two I was spending my spare time pinteresting away. My “Australia here I come” board brought me so much excitement, as I planned everything I wanted to do, see, and experience. Pin after pin, blog after blog, photo after photo, idea after idea, the list kept growing….I was planning this move abroad. Fast forward a year and I’m here. It’s one of those “pinch me” things I have quite often been doing here in Australia. Now I was getting to live out of a van, and just go with the flow of the Aussie life, seeing, doing and exploring all this beautiful country has to offer.
The dream….buy a van, travel the country, live freely, slowly, and live simply. It’s always been a dream. I’ve recited this dream countless times my squad, to Thomas and my family. Now…we did not buy a van here in Australia due to the logistics of it, but back in Canada that will change. We got great advice from East Coast Tours on Campervan Hire and I am so happy because our van was perfect!
