The Past Year

A constant state of awe. That was what the last twelve months held for us. We had a massive adventure living and working in the Pilbara. Our jobs consumed us twenty-four/seven and we loved every minute but it left no time for blogging. Our experience was a steep learning curve and we learnt so much there is no looking back. We have learnt the importance of family and friends, but most of all we learnt the importance we hold in each other’s lives. Money, power, title means nothing if you don’t have each other. 

There is a photo essay post to follow with our year in the Pilbara in pictures. We hope you enjoy looking at the past year through our eyes. 

Going forward we are heading back towards QLD, heading South down the West Coast, across the Nullabor, down to Adelaide than back up the Centre (our favourite part of Australia), a visit to Uluru and then cutting back across to Queensland to write another chapter. We encourage your feedback and recommendations on places we should stop along the way.

We are sharing this next trip with our families. There are so many beautiful places across this wide, brown land we could go back to most places time and time again. Travel and exploring is always better when you are sharing the experience with those close to you.

  1. Great pictures, water colour so different to where we currently are in NZ where water is gin clear. There is an interesting drive following the pipeline to Kalgoorlie if you are in that area. Lots of neat spots to stop, and don’t forget the golf course between kal and ceduna, good for a hit and giggle.
