A week road trip in Tassie

Right before leaving Australia my last adventure was to head across to Tasmania and go on one final road trip. I’d wanted to visit for so long, and even tried to find farm work in the area, but time flew by and before I knew it I was only a few weeks away from my

Back home to Scotland

Well, it’s been about seven months since I last wrote a blog. Every time I’ve tried I’ve been more and more overwhelmed with how behind I am that I instead ignore it and get even further behind! So, I’m going to ease myself in with a nice easy one as to where I’m at now,

Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy is a small town in northern South Australia famous for its opal mining, and is a fascinating stop on the road trip through the red centre.

Farm life in Mooroopna and Shepparton

Something that inevitably comes with doing farm work is living in a rural part of Australia. For us, that meant living in Mooroopna, a small town in Victoria nicknamed ‘Fruit salad city’. Most of our days here were spent working or recovering on our few days off, but we tried our best to fit in

88 days a farmer

After finding ourselves farm work, the next step was to actually do it. Our job hunt led us to a little town 2.5 hours north of Melbourne called Mooroopna, next to the more commonly known city of Shepparton. Rising bright and early for our first day, we headed off to a nearby farm just as
