Goodbye Queensland

5 years ago, we packed up all our worldly possessions into a trailer and with our 8 month old first born moved to the Sunshine State.  It was a fairly epic move.

We have loved our time in Queensland, but after 5 addresses, 4 vehicles and adding another 5 children to our tribe, it was time to move on.

2 weeks ago, we sealed up and waved goodbye to our container (our worldly possessions have grown with our family). 

We dropped off our truck to be transported.

Then handed in the keys to our house, and finally rolled out of Mackay at 11.30pm.  We got a few hours sleep in the van.  After driving all the next day, we barely crossed the state border that evening after our first leg of 1,108kms to arrive at our first stop in Tweed Heads, NSW.

We have been on the road since then and today the odometer on this trip rolled past the 7,000km mark.  (For anyone wondering what that distance compares to, it is the same as driving from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Houston, Texas; or from London, England to Kabul, Afghanistan.)

We are loving living on the road, but are nearing the end of that phase.

I'll do my best to post more updates soon, but life is pretty busy :D

Your wanderlust is truly impressive. Good luck at your new destination, which is...?
