The Auckland Art Gallery won the 2013 World Building of the Year award at the world Architecture festival. I read these facts on the Virgin in flight magazine as I flew across to New Zealand. The photos accompanying the article show a magnificent modern building that still retained the old historic, heritage building. For me it was a must see…

The entrance is flanked by huge Kauri posts

Weekly Photo Challenge : Inside

Inside Matilda

Inside Matilda

The challenge from the Word Press team this week is INSIDE. It prompts me to pay homage to our constant travelling companion, Matilda.

In 2010 we lived and travelled for a year inside this small space. We named her Meandering Matilda, a Toyota Hi-ace pop-top camper van. Jack is in the dining room/office which at night converted into our bedroom by dropping down the table and pulling across the back rests. Surprisingly it became a queen size bed. On Jack’s right is the fridge and along the front of that is a small gas cooker, the kitchen area. We had every thing we needed for a comfortable, cosy or should I say compact, life on the road.

We travelled right round Australia, covering 37,000 kilometres and taking thousands of photographs. It was a memorable experience, and we are still talking to each other…

I started this blog in 2009 to record our journey, starting with the search for our transport and the downsizing of our house to a studio apartment/granny flat.

After the doing the “big lap”, almost a rite of passage for retirees, the urge to wander still remained. So after a short stay at home spending summer on the Goldcoast we now head north each winter to the tropical northern climate. 2011 we meandered to Cairns. 2012 Darwin and the Northern Territory became our winter stop over and this year we are on the Atherton Tablelands.

Matilda has been worth her weight in gold.
