Fun and games in Brno while waiting to get our van back from the mechanic (front shock issues)

Looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Is there such a thing? Or does the tunnel end in pure darkness? •
Feeling grateful today ~ Grateful to be on a journey that I have the chance to share with all of you. •
Thank you for the lovely messages of support some of you have sent me over the past few days ~ it truly means the world 🌍🌎🌏
So we find ourselves in the land of dingoes ... not ideal when you’re on a secluded beach far, far away from any one with your useless (but awesome), domesticated canine with you who might as well be prey. Prey that actively attracts its predator 🤦🏽♀️ Dingoes are cool, hungry aggressive dingoes ... hmmm we’re a bit out of our league here, we’re used to crocodiles 🐊, jellyfish and snakes 🐍 not wild, hungry doggies 🐕 #lifeontheroad#dingoes#outbackwa#westernaustralia
We are pleased to introduce @itsallgoodman2019 👋 😉 The Goodman’s -
Shaun, Kara, Jace (3) and Ella (1) “We are newly married - January 2019" ❤️.
“We had be talking about it for years!! (Since 2014) we just didn’t make it happen!
In the end we decided to move to Broome for work.
We ended up spending 4 years in Broome, where we ended up having both our children and building our first home!
Mid 2018 we sold our home and moved South to Bunbury WA to be closer to Shaun’s family, this is when we decided to set ourselves up to hit the road, so here we are!" 🙌🙌🙌 They left in April in their Toyota Landcruiser 200 series & 24ft
Jayco Stirling, triple bunk.
They would like to tell others to "Just do it!! You can always pick work up along the way if you need to." They say, "There are so many free camps, $10 or under sites you can stay at, it’s not always caravan parks!
It’s just like living at home, having to pay rent or a mortgage and food etc!
Just replace your rent money for fuel money!".
. "As we are travelling with kids, sometimes the car ride can be tough!
I find snacks keep our kids happy along with a DVD.
What I do are “Snack Bags”
I use zip lock bags and create little bags of goodies for them!
Whether it’s fruits, biscuits, crackers, fairy bread, popcorn ect.
Example - Kiwi fruit cubes, apple slices, grapes, cucumber sticks and raspberries"
Some great advice 👍
These top people will be travelling hopefully for 2 years, so if you see them about make sure you say gday 👋.
. 'Let's get together yeh'.
Can you cruise Halong Bay with kids? Hell yes! We had so much fun on this boat and the scenery is some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
We’d heard from some people that it’s overrated and too polluted, but we loved it!
We only booked it 3 days beforehand, and found a Royal Suite on the Royal Palace Cruise for just $650 for 3 days 2 nights via Agoda (almost half the price advertised on Booking.com surprisingly). I think you could get it even cheaper on the day, there are so many boats going every day there’s always space.
Under 5s go free on all boats and they’re all pretty similar.
We paid $40 USD for a return transfer from Hanoi. 3.5hrs on the bus each way with one loo stop. The kids did fine, but we decided to spend a night in Halong City on either side of the cruise to break up the travel and so we’d get on the boat fresh rather than grouchy 😆
Note: there’s nothing much to see in Halong City - construction central! But accommodation is CHEAP at $40 AUD for a 2-bed apartment.
All food on board is included (there’s a LOT), we took the pram and they had a cot and a high chair for us. The staff kept stealing Sonny from us for cuddles, so we were also able to go kayaking and to some of the incredible cave excursions. We even saw monkeys!! 🐒 🐒 🐒
Definitely one of the highlights of our trip so far. Any questions, just drop me a comment! 🤓
Being back at mums house temporarily has given me the time and ease to get back into my self care practices (which I’ve really missed), including daily yoga and nourishing smoothies 🌱😋. It’s no excuse not doing the things I love on the road, but having a fully functioning kitchen definitely helps 🤪. How do you stay healthy on the road?
Kiliselerin dışında iki ayrı okul binası, yerleşimin ortak yapılarından diğer grubu oluşturmaktadır. Kızlar ve erkeklerin ayrı eğitim aldığı Levissi'de Kızlar Okulu Turabi Çeşmesi'nin hemen üzerindeki yükseltide, Erkekler Okulu Yukarı Kilise'nin kuzey-batısındaki tepenin zirvesinde yer almaktadır. Halen Fethiye Müzesi'nde bulunan Kızlar Okulu'nun kitabesinde, yapıyı Lövisidi Kardeşlerin yaptırdığı belirtilmektedir. Sadece ilköğretimin yapıldığı okullarda öğrenim dili Rumca olarak okutulmuştur. Öğrenciler daha yüksek öğrenim için, Rodos, Atina ve İstanbul'a gönderilmişlerdir. Levissi'de tanımlanabilen yapılardan diğer grubu yel değirmenleri oluşturmaktadır. Yerleşimin güneyindeki sırtta batı şapelin yaklaşık 100 m. batısında bulunan yel değirmeni, denizden gelen rüzgarlara açıktır. Diğer yel değirmeni kaya çukurunun güney-batısında değirmentepe'nin zirvesinde bulunmaktadır.
İçten iki katlı olan yuvarlak planlı yel değirmenlerinden günümüze sadece beden duvarları ulaşmıştır. Yukarı Kilisenin kuzey kesimdeki boş alan ve çevresi, kentin ticari alanını oluşturmaktadır. Yapılar bugün tam olarak tanımlanamasa da kullanıldığı dönemde çevrede kahve, kasap, manav, bakkal, kumaşçı gibi dükkanların bulunduğu bilinmektedir. Kayaköy için günümüze kadar pek çok yazılar yazılmış, sempozyumlar, forumlar, konferanslar, toplantılar yapılmıştır. Gayet yerinde iyi niyetli girişimlerle Kayaköy; Türk-Yunan Dostluk Köyü ilan edilmiştir. Günümüz insanına yakışan da budur. Dostluğumuzu biraz daha ileriye taşıyarak Levissi yerleşimindeki metruk yapıları, doğanın insafına terk etmeden daha uzun yaşamlarını sürdürmek için uygulamaya geçmek samimiyetimizi perçinleyecektir.

Back to my natural habitat this morning in Zagreb, Croatia after playing Zagreb beer festival yesterday with @electric_octopus. Gonna enjoy another couple of days off on adventures around Croatia before the next show in Split on Wednesday. Hope to see you there!
Hope everyone is feeling good this morning, remember, simply waking up to another day of life is all you need to be happy! ✌🏽❤️🙏😀
This time last year was the day of the launch of my first book Where to Next? •
I can still remember how nervous and excited I felt. It was like everything that’d happened in my life thus far had led to this special moment. •
I secretly wished that 19 May 2018 would be pivotal - that I would become a bestselling author and TV presenter, that I’d prove that dreams do come true and that I’d show all the haters that I wasn’t the failure they’d made me out to be - myself especially. •
Did my life change? It did. My book brought me closer to family members and friends old and new. It gave me a sense of purpose and community. It made me more resilient and realistic too. •
But it also left me with a taste of bitterness for what could have been and of embarrassment for what I’d secretly wished for. Who was I to dream so big? Who was I... really? •
But the journey doesn’t end here. This year, I vow to mend my bruised ego and to - when the time comes - pour my energy into new artistic ventures. •
In the meantime, I would just like to express my utmost gratitude to all of my readers and supporters - you know who you are. Without you, none of this would have been possible, none of this would have been enjoyable, none of this would have been meaningful. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU 🙌
If you haven’t read Where to Next? yet and would like to... you can find it on my website or on Amazon worldwide in paperback, ebook and audio format. Can’t wait to welcome you to the #bebeyondborders community! •
With love, Solène

Behind each is hours of research and many MANY mistakes.
To be honest it's damn hard to be okay with making mistakes, and disappointing not being on track with my schedule.
BUT I'm absolutely loving life back in my hometown & pretty chuffed with the build quality so overall I'm pretty stoked 🌊 🏄🚐

That other point of view, of a super quiet morning in Bukit. I was just there floating with the sunrise sun, barely moving, barely thinking.
And just after I realised (as you can see now) the shape I was swimming in was something like an eye or cyber seashell 😮
