Road Trippin'

What arrived in South Africa today, courtesy of my sis on a blitz-visit from Ireland!

Lets go camping!

My sis tipped me off  to Kate's blog and I started following their family's road trip around half of Australia about halfway through.  While I loved the travelling tales, I also liked her crochet work, their way of thinking and outlook on life, and continued to follow her and farmer Bren's adventures at home, about life on an organic farm, crafting, hooking and the like.

It remains one of my favourite blogs; have a look at

Now I just want to hook a caravan to my Xtrail and take off.  But a ±1500 km road trip southwards in three week's time will have to do! At the other end, there's a little beach house where my Rainbow Ripple actually lives, I can put up some bunting, two couches are waiting for new slipcovers...I can pretend it's my stationary caravan.

That sounds like a such a cool thing to do, road tripping! And I love the sneaky peek at your rainbow ripple...its beautiful!

Yess! Will do.

Thanks, Hazel. As much as we love travelling afar by plane, it's as nice to get in the car for a long haul. Tomorrow we're doing 4 hours for a wedding - that my sis flew in from Ireland for!
