Wait a minute. A blog in English? What's that all about?? All you kind readers in Holland have been able to follow us in Dutch so far, but for our English-speaking friends it's been a bit tougher... The past week we have had a wonderful time with Team Free, the Aussie family we met on the TransMongolian Express in Russia and they have followed us by using Google Translate, so we figured we'll make it a bit easier on them this time!

We spent Christmas Eve & Day in Hunter Valley where we indulged ourselves to plenty of good wine and nice stinky cheeses. On Boxing Day (that's 2nd Christmas Day for our Dutch readers) we drove to Sydney and returned our Hippie Camper. We drove a total of 4,110 km over 4 weeks without scratching it!
We took the ferry from Sydney to Manly and were picked up by Team Free. We stayed for one night in Avalon in a house amidst a variety of Aussie Wildlife where we were able to feed the Cockatoos (Kaketoes) from the balcony!

The Aussie coast is amazing here as well; we especially love the beaches where they created an outdoor pool on the beach that fills up with seawater whenever there is a high tide. We had left our Pieter-van-den-Hoogenband outfit at home but this did not stop us from (pretending to) take a dive!

The day after we drove to Bilpin, a town in the heart of the Blue Mountains National Park. Beautiful surroundings and a place to totally relax, hang out and hang loose. No Worries!

We visited the Three Sisters Rock formation, drove a bit on a quad, completed a 500-piece tulip-puzzle, had a few stubbies, put some food on the barbie and practiced our aiming skills with an air-rifle.

Thank you so much to Barry, Julie (mother-in-law :)), Marcus, Melissa, Jackson, Harrison, Hunter and Nate for your hospitality and friendship. And special paw to Charlie Brown!
