About Me

Victoria, BC, Canada
Welcome to our roadshow: Amos, Naeva, Ian and Kristina on the go for six months. We're saying goodbye to our real life in Victoria BC, and heading out to see a bit of the world. Australia, Thailand and Europe - by camper, bike, foot and everything in between. Thanks for joining us on our travels!

Don't put your hands where you can't see them

A quick hello from the parking lot of the Woodenbong Pool, where we have cell access for a few minutes. We've been visiting my (Kristina's) third cousins Lowell and his wife ALicia and kids Charlie and Hudson for the last few days. We have been hosted oh-so well! It is gorgeous up here, prosperous farm country just on the border of QUeensland, up in the hills. Alicia has taken us all around and cooked feasts for our crews. Lowell works for National Parks here and has been a great guide and storyteller ("Don't put your hands were you can't see them" is the common warning to the kids, thanks to spiders, snakes, leeches, jumping ants and many other creatures that live in and around the house!).

More later, but here are a few photos from the last few days.

This is the farm where they live. Gorgeous farmland up here, in an old volcanic crater:

On a break on the hike...can't sit too long or the leeches find you (they live in the leaf litter...and yes we were pulling them off our legs!).

Saying a big goodbye tomorrow and heading back for the coast.
