Road Tripping

For the last week we’ve been…

Driving through beautiful countryside, by gorgeous beaches and over rolling hills.

Attending the loveliest wedding of all time.

Having late night Thai food feasts in our motel room.

Listening to Doctor Karl podcasts, as well as lots of Bon Iver, The Weepies, Jenny Lewis, Neil Young, Sigur Ros and Cat Stevens.

Eating pancakes and bruschetta for breakfast, by the river in Coffs Harbour.

Catching up with family and dear friends.

Stopping at lovely country towns for coffee and cake, and to poke about in antique stores and op-shops.

Eating hot chips and watching the sun set, by the water in Noosa.

Having wonderful conversations in the car.

Driving by the Big Merino, The Big Banana, The Big Pineapple and The Big Pelican!

Discovering the cutest little handmade store in Bangalow.

Meeting gorgeous Rhonda in person, eating her lovely homegrown food and being ever so inspired by her words.

Feeding ducks and making friends with cats.

It’s been such a wonderful week and we are enjoying every bit of our trip! We hope your week has been equally peachy. We’ll be back to share more of our adventures soon!

    Oh, look at you two sweethearts! Looks like a wonderful trip and how equally fantastic to spend time with Rhonda at her table. I’ve been to the big banana and the big pineapple, but I shall have to add the pelican and ram to my list now! πŸ™‚

      It was so wonderful to spend time with Rhonda in person! She is such an inspiring lady and we left her home feeling so encouraged and motivated. The Big Merino is at Goulburn. There’s nothing much there, but there is a really good bakery just across the road! The Big Pelican was in a park in Noosa and it’s pretty much just a large sculpture. The Big Pineapple and Big Banana are definitely better, though all the attractions are gone from the Big Pineapple now, which is sad. xx

      It’s a giant fibreglass Merino, which is an Australian breed of sheep! “Big” things like the Big Merino, Big Banana and Big Pineapple are iconic in Australia. There are big things all around the country! πŸ™‚

    I recently discovered your blog and have really been enjoying it! I am a dual citizen Aussie living in America. My husband and I love roadside oddities like that and we have been to the big Pineapple too! Also we have been to the giant Bundy bottle at the distillery and the Giant Koala in the Grampians. Next time we’re over there we have got to check out the banana and the ram! Great photos! πŸ™‚

    My husband lived in Australia for years. he told me about this Big Banana-thing. It’s quite a weird concept to Europeans, but it seems like fun!
