e509b9b9-dab6-4915-b13a-1de29f6c8ec9So here we are in Dunsborough. Pretty little quiet country town Dunsborough. We spent the morning transporting here via uber, train then bus – it worked out quite well. The rain has cleared & the week ahead promises fine sunny days – perfect for a hike.

We wined & dined until we ate so much food was coming out of our ears. A bit of relaxing in our backpackers accommodation. Even challenged Mr D to a game of pool. (He won – just!)IMG_8248

Then it was sorting out our heavy sodden backpacks again & again. Mr D was getting frustrated with his backpack straps. If anyone has seen an Aarn backpack, it is as complicated as it looks. Mr D’s backpack weighs 20kg which includes a red wine goon bag…. or two….& some whiskey on the side. Must get ones priorities right. Mine is like 16kgs easily with the food bags clearly weighing at least 4kgs, then the water weighing a further 2kgs. So the more we eat, the lighter my pack gets! Alas, the more wine I drink from Mr D, the lighter his pack gets! Win, win situation.IMG_8253

Well it’s time for a good nights sleep before we venture out with our little houses on our backs, ready for another adventure!

    1. The beaches were so tempting today Tracey! I left my bathers behind but can always go for a swim in my clothes if I’m desperate!
