Soooo many mixed feelings this week, whilst packing our Kombi “Ava” for our adventure to the Margaret River. Firstly I have no idea how Steve, the three boys , myself and all our belongings fitted into one tiny Kombi for 6 months. We did pack lightly and we used every available space but this time I had to pack alone. We were picking Steve up from the airport and heading down the coast for our first get away in months. I managed to get most of what we needed in but I did forget a few key items , such as cups and toothbrushes!
The boys were jumping out of their skin with excitement. It was twice as exciting they were going to see their dad and get back into our adventurous life on the road. All three of our boys love the great outdoors, camping, being free and new and exciting places. This was the first trip we had taken since February so they couldn’t wait to get back to the way of life they love.
Picking Steve up is always so fun for the boys and me. Watching them sit beneath the board to see when Steve’s plane will land. Watching them run as soon as they catch the first glimpse of him turn the corner. They hold onto him with so much love and admiration. I get no greater pleasure than seeing my boys love and appreciate what a fun, hands on, great dad they have!
Fly in fly out is not an ideal job for a fun loving family of 3 young boys. We do however want to spend alot of our lives travelling . We are currently saving for our next adventure and are finding this the fastest way to make the most money. I will continue our love of the Margaret river in my next post.
All you other travelling families.. What do you do for money on the road?
Until next post xoxoxoxoxoxo
