This month we reached a mini milestone – 19 months on the road! Of course we stopped travelling for four months last year during the worst of Covid but we still count it as it was completely different to our old lifestyle! We still pinch ourselves everyday that we are living our dream. Read on to see our Expense Report for April 2021.
This month Brenden has continued to work. We initially thought he would only be working for three weeks. But when he was offered a few more weeks, he was happy to continue. We have still managed a few day trips here and there. But best of all has been the time we have been able to spend catching up with our family and friends before we head off again at the end of this month. It was lovely to be able to spend Easter with our family here – something we haven’t done in a few years.
We also bought ourselves a small firepit, so we have been enjoying having a fire on the weekends with friends. We’ve had a few laughs, a few drinks and made some travel plans for next year!
We took another drive over to Forbes to check out the latest two additions to the Sculpture Down the Lachlan art trail. We just can’t get enough of these awesome pieces of artwork. Make sure you check them out when you are travelling through. Bird in Hand is our new favourite.
We also decided to check out the Conimbla National Park which is located just outside of Cowra. It’s a pretty spot, with a couple of good areas for a picnic and two walking tracks. We walked the longer one which wound it’s way through the bush until we came out on top of an escarpment with beautiful views all around.
