Our Tet Aussie Odyssey.

The Moggys had a lighting trip back to Aus over Tet to get a few things sorted for our return in July.  The kids got to see their new school which they loved.  Scarlett did however ask why they did not show us the swimming pool.  Troi Oi!  We also spent time down at the Bellarine Peninsula where we have a caravan.  We then headed off to the bush to visit more family and even managed to squeeze in a performance of Jersey Boys in town.  We had a fabulous time and the weather was perfect.  It has made the kids even more excited to return.
We couldn't resist!

Scarlett making ANZAC biscuits with her cousin Steph.

Lunch on the beautiful Maribyrnong River near our home.

Whilst we were in town for Jersey Boys we managed to celebrate Tet after all!  Well, Chinese New Year anyway, in China Town!
One of our favorite places in the world.  Ocean Grove.  The kids were so happy to be there!

Being tourists at a local wildlife sanctuary.

Now that they are both confident swimmers it was time to throw them in the deep end.  Surfs up dudes!

I am astounded at the natural ability of children.  They took to it like ducks to water....pun intended.

This little grommit even managed to walk the plank!

By day 2 she was ready for the Rip Curl Pro at Bells this Easter.

.....even on a short board!

Beach bum!

Then we were off on a road trip to the Aussie bush.  Here is a tip for fellow travellers or expats heading back for holidays.  We hired a car for the week but rather than pay an extra 30 dollars a day for excess insurance we picked up some travel insurance that covers hire car damage.  That way the car is covered...AND us!

A good old Aussie pub!

See what we did there....

There was a local Farmers market on in town.  Amazing fresh produce from the local area.

Ever wondered what a sleepy Aussie country town looks like?  Here is one I prepared earlier!  This is the main street.  You can smell the eucalyptus in the air and the birds screeching is almost deafening.  It might just be a little bit like heaven.


  1. It's such a joy to read your posts. This one can be titled as "Perfect Vacation" :) Action shots on a board and with a ball are perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hey! Thanks a lot. So glad you like them. It is indeed a great compliment considering the quality of your own blog! Happy year of the snake!

  3. Hi Dani,
    How do you get your pictures so big on your blog?
    I'm going to miss the Moggy Mekong Madness after July :(

    1. Hi Alissa! Thanks for reading. I think I will miss it come July too! Regarding the photos, I just click on them and it gives me various options like commenting, positioning and also resizing. I just hit extra large. Hope this helps.
