It’s going to be a quick post today, because I’m having internet connection problems, just as I did on my road trip back in 2009.
At that time though, I was travelling through places like Sydney and Melbourne, at least this time I made it all the way to Port Douglas in Far North Queensland before having these difficulties. And unlike back then, this time I have a mobile phone, a hotspot, and an intermittent 4G signal to get me by.
Yesterday, we went to Daintree National Park. It’s a gardeners nightmare…
How on earth do we set about the task of tidying this lot up as well as Edging and Trimming the Lawn?
The answer, of course, is that we don’t. This is an area of stunning beauty. It is also, in the case of Daintree National Park, where the rainforest meets the reef…
Tomorrow we check out of our Port Douglas apartment and I will be dropping Mrs Bob and Elizabeth back at Cairns Airport. They will be home by about 5 o’clock the evening same day. Me, I will be high-tailing it back in the car; this time no detours, no sightseeing and no photo taking.
I will be covering the 2000 or so kilometres as quickly as possible and hope to arrive back in Brisbane by Thursday evening. I know I haven’t told you very much about this road trip as yet, but I will tell you much more about it over the coming months.
My journey is not over yet though, more on Wednesday.
