Have You Seen A Wombat?

March 8, 2020 Day two of our Cradle Mountain adventure dawned rather chillier than day one.

One to Go

One week to go until lift off and we wing our way to Croatia to begin the next adventure. With that time frame in mind, a week until we leave with busy days between now and then, we thought perhaps we should do something that remotely resembled preparation. So…time to think about what to pack... Continue Reading →
