When She and I think of overseas travel, we always tend to err on the side of big trips to faraway places - but we are now tempering that view! For a few reasons - we have commitments at home and in our community; we miss the kids, the grand-kids, "H" and Millie (the cat) dreadfully; AND we are finding that the longer trips are proving not only looooonger as we get older but also, especially for us retirees, way too expensive!...

It's winter and cold, dark and sometimes miserable...enough to give you the "winter-blues"! 

Some people may even experience "Seasonal Affective Disorder" or (SAD) a form of depression that hits most people in winter and lifts in the spring.  The main reason behind this is the reduced amount of sunlight in the season, compared to summer.  Lack of vitamin "D" and sunshine has been linked to depression in a number...

 Port Fairy is one of those special place where you find yourself saying "I could live here"!  We have visited this special hamlet twice and can't wait to go back again and again.  A stunningly beautiful protected beach on one side and a picture perfect port on the other.  It's an easy pace and everything is an easy walk.

If you are driving along the Great Ocean Road towards South Australia you will come to Cheese World at Allansford, Warnambool.  The drive along the Great Ocean Road is spectacular, but even as the ocean disappears from view you will find yourself amongst some of the prettiest farms in the country.   

When you reach Warnambool you will find Cheese World.  Do stop and take a look at this iconic Australian dairy fac...

Day Three - Healesville, The Yarra Valley, Victoria.  What a little gem this town is.  We arrived early enough to have breakfast at the Innocent Bystander - smashed avocado, poached egg on freshly baked sour-dough....yummy!  The town is also rich with art - the Tarrawarra Museum of Art is a must see.

Our second port of call was The Yarra Valley, Victoria.  As we headed toward Healesville, to our left we saw the famous 'Chandon Estate' sign and some quick vehicular manoeuvring had us entering the long beautiful driveway to the estate.  We decided to take a tour of the winery, a wine tasting and then lunch. Healesville would have to wait until tomorrow.  The estate is breathtakingly beautiful and well worth the visit...

We bought the motor-home (The Dreamliner) , set the date to leave and return, planned the trip according to the 'dump-points' available, he joined every camp-site loyalty program available in Australia, we downloaded 'apps' that would find us fuel, accommodation, water, groceries and the nearest and best coffee!  On the 7th May, 2016 with much excitement we left on our 7 week journey across Australia.
