For a change I chose the inland route to Sydney on our way from the Gold Coast to the farm, house sit. Mainly because I had not been this way before.
Armidale was to be our first stop over, almost a 600 kilometre journey from the Gold Coast.
Have you heard of Airbnb? (If not check it out here.) I have used it a lot and love it. Well when I contacted Clare for a 2 night Airbnb stay in Armidale, she emailed back to say she would be away on the days we wanted accommodation. BUT she noticed we did house sitting, would we like to do a deal, stay 3 nights, pay for one and feed her chooks and water pot plants? Of course I said yes…
It was in an ideal location. At the end of a quiet street, almost in the country, near the University and only a 5 minute drive to the CBD. If you look carefully you can see the few pot plants. It was rustic and basic but had comfy beds and every thing we needed.
I looked in the long grass under that big old apple tree.
And found a worm farm tucked away.
After feeding the 5 chooks and checking for eggs. It was time to explore Armidale…

Went in to airbub, how very interesting. Love the chooks, for some unknown reason they relax me.
