Hello Maria and Peter,

So you are back from your hollidaytrip. By the looks of it, you had a wunderfull time and seen much. But to be back home is also good.

So you can start planning a new one.:)

Hello Maria and Peter,

I am reading your report on your holliday trip and by the looks of it, you having a good time.

At first I thought you were travelling with Dutch weather, but it has changed.

I read some strange and funny names you came across, for instance Oma Waterhole. Translates in Dutch this is not a nice name. LOL.

We have now your standard weather here, that is to say if you like 30 to 35 degrees now without air-conditioning and for the coming 3 or 4 days. It will be a record.

Have a nice trip and good times with your friends.

Regards, Leo.

G'Day Danny,

Great to hear from you. No nothing I did fixed the problem, ended up selling the car eventually as I was just spending too much money on it and getting nowhere

If all else fails, when one is lost, and does not know where he is, just call it 'Tall Trees Creek', and all is well.

Best with all Peter

Great adventures listed here, most enjoyable, leans me towards escapism too. Did the Spot light removal from the 80 series solve the heating problem, or was the vehicle changeover conducted during the cooler periods.

All the best with travel

I finally did it :) although now I feel really guilty because you wrote a big happy birthday to Rory and he hasnt seen it yet :(

I am glad you are relaxing and having a good time. Beau looks like he is having a good time too. He has probably seen more of Australia then me.

Love you both heaps.

G'day Pete & all the gang, We're enjoying your travel docs and the photos are great, thanks for that. Can you ask Ros to give me some hints on Candy Crush Saga. It's a real saga with me. I've downloaded it on my tablet and I know it's supposed to be good but I can't get the hang of it.

Take care

Hello Maria, Peter and the wonder dog,

Looking at your website and follow your nice trip around Queensland. Looks well and very inlandisch(if that's the right word).

But it is very dry in that area. Shall I send some rain from Holland to you?

Hello Maria and Peter,

Still enjoying your holliday I think, I looked further on the internet for Pildappa Rock and The Whistling Rocks and I do say, very nice places to go to, special the Pildappa rock I find amazing.

Hope you have lots to see but don't eat to much oysters, it is not good for you.

Regards, Leo

So great to be able to see and read about your travels, although it's disappointing to hear that your car has been giving you some grief!

Despite the car though, it does look like your off to a great start, experiencing some fantastic places on the way! Enjoy and be safe. Thinking of you and am hoping that the car behaves for you.

Love to you all! :D
