Travelling is cool. We love it. But it’s not always easy and relaxing. Travelling can be tiring and exhausting. There is a lot of organising involved and decisions to take. Therefore we take holidays from travelling to recharge our batteries. And the best is, it’s almost for free. How we do that and what we do in our holidays you’ll find out here.
We’re on the way from Sydney to Melbourne. We love the coast but currently there are the big school holidays in Australia and everybody seems to spend their holidays on the coast. But we are lucky and we find the perfect spot to spend a few days relaxing. Camping in the cape Conran Coastal Park. A free campsite called in the Binn Beach close to the Pearl Point on the South Coast of Australia.
The Camp is very close to the beach. It’s just a three minute walk through the bush until we reach the sea. And there, wow, we’re impressed. The view is amazing. And we are the only ones on this looooong beach. The first thing we do is exploring the area. We walk along the beach as far as we can and even if it’s just a beach there is plenty to see.
The sea is rough but beautiful to look at. While walking, the beach is changing from sand to shells. Suddenly we’re walking on shells instead of sand. Incredible, we’ve never seen anything like this. We dig a small whole and the deeper we get the more shells come to sight.
But we’re not only walking. Marcel is surfing on a big cable drum and is having fun.
He’s also trying to surf on some rocks and it works as well.
On the way back to the camp we observe birds and Marcel needs to be quite patient to get a good shot of them. The birds here are not used to humans and therefore they are very shy.
We love our camp and this area. That’s why we decide to stay a few days. But what do we do on a place like this where there is nothing but bush, the sea and a long stretch of beach?
We relax, wash, have a shower, we walk along the beach, we collect shells, we’re downloading pictures and we write this blog post. In the evenings we enjoy the beautiful sunset on the beach.
Besides this we eat, sleep and enjoy sitting on the campfire. Life is beautiful!
And the result of our 4-day-micro-holiday is:
- we have recharged our batteries
- freshly washed clothes
- an empty fridge
- a blogpost and the second travelogue
- 300 more photos
- and a mobile toy made out of shells
