Day 1: About Blogging….
Before we set out on our main trip for 2016, I assured everyone that I was going to be a lot more diligent about updating our blog and making Facebook posts, so family and friends could follow our travels and know what we were up to. Well…I’ve done half of that! I have been posting to Facebook, but we all know the problem with FB: it’s an exercise in frustration to try to scroll back through the days, weeks, months and years to find the posts if you want to look back! That’s where a blog comes into its own.
We’ve now been on the road for almost a month (yeah, I know…Marg cringes with embarrassment) and it’s only now, holed up in the caravan at Gundagai with rain pattering on the roof, that I’m finally getting around to catching up on my blog posts! It’s actually Mother’s Day today, and after Rob bringing me breakfast in bed I read for a while, played Words With Friends, had a late shower, made coffee, and finally here I am, POSTING TO THE BLOG!
What I’m going to do is create a series of posts to reflect our trip so far, and backdate them appropriately so they’ll be in order. I’ll also file all posts from this trip under 2016 Main Trip.
Even though we’re in Gundagai as I write this, I’ll make this post No. 1 and date it from the beginning of our trip…the day we left: April 11!
We haven’t had much of a chance to explore Gundagai yet, after reaching here yesterday and setting up on a lovely riverside site (at the Gundagai Riverside Park, of course.) Yesterday we just basked in the sun and relaxed; today we’re still relaxing…but inside, out of the rain! Here are a few pics (the second one shows our new collapsible bucket from Aldi being put to good use catching drips from the awning as the rain comes down):
