November 2004 Travel Log

This was a special month for us. We celebrated our 26th anniversary with a special vacation to Australia. We rented a Campervan and spent 28 days driving around Australia. We drove 3,531 miles around the Southeast corner of Australia, visiting the states of New South Wales, Victoria, and Tasmania. The following is our daily log of adventures. I've also written a general article on our experience and lessons learned about renting a RV and traveling in Australia.


11/1: We got off from the L.A. Airport without any problems. The lines were short, and security was thorough, but didn’t take long. Of course, leaving at 11:45pm helped. The flight was long (about 15 hours), and getting to sleep was difficult. But we did have individual TV screens and a choice of over a dozen movies and shows to watch.

We packed up a selection of clothes and emptied the fridge and freezer and now we're staying with Connie's parents in Torrance, CA until our plane leaves on Monday. They treated us to a nice dinner out for Connie's birthday. We've rented a small motorhome in Australia and will tour the Southeast corner for 28 days. We'll have to rely on Internet Cafe's periodically, so I don't expect to update this web site until we return in early December. I'll try to keep the log current while traveling, so I'll be able to upload it all immediately after we return. Check back in December, and you can read all about our adventures traveling in Australia in a motorhome.
