Sam & Lucy's Travel Blog - Here you'll find the latest blog updates, recent photographs and where we've been. We start off in Melbourne, Australia, departing the UK on the 01/10/2016. Sam & I thought Australia would be all sunshine and surfing, but we were quickly corrected when landing in Melbourne. They're only just coming into spring here, so we plan to move up the East Coast to Sydney pretty sharpish! Our trip over the next year will take us up the East Coast of Australia from Melbourne to Cairns. Once Australia has finished with us, we'll fly on to Auckland, New Zealand, where we travel the North & South island in our motor home. Once our 2 months is up in New Zealand we will move on to Bali, Indonesia, to relax in the sunshine on paradise beaches. Further to Indonesia we will travel up through South East Asia, hopefully stopping off in Thailand, Loas, Vietnam & Cambodia.

NZ: Cathedral Cove & Central North Island
It's such a contrast coming to New Zealand after being in Australia for 6 months, there is just so much to do here, I feel 6 weeks is only just enough! We've been busy and on the move everyday. After explo...

NZ: Northlands
We began our New Zealand journey landing in Auckland and exploring the city. What can I say? Auckland is just another city (not the reason we came here!). After picking up our campervan the following day we hea...

Our Final Farewell
Well it's down to our last few days in Australia and I couldn't be happier that we're spending them in Brisbane. For me Brisbane is like a combination of Melbourne & Sydney. It has the relaxed v...
