Life is full of surprises! This is not where I imagined I would be right now, it’s better! But it didn’t out start that way! My name is Carol and in 2018 at the age of 36 I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. It was a huge shock to the system and after my treatments finished, my family and I decided that life was too short and we wanted to do a lap of Australia! So we bought a Jayco Journey Outback and the rest is history!
Life after cancer isn’t easy but we want to make the most of it. Follow our story as we make memories to last a lifetime and build an online business to create more time for the things that really matter.

We decided to build this site as a source of inspiration and information for anyone interested in what we are doing. We want to share our experiences, top tips and destinations we love.
Here are a few shots of where we stayed. I couldn’t recommend this place more, what a beautiful spot. It has everything thing you need in a convenient location as well as being peaceful, luxurious and just plain gorgeous. There is so much to do including golf, nature walks, marron fishing, boating, paddle boarding and swimming to say the least. 👌...

It was daunting, terrifying and confronting, yet comforting and lifesaving. It’s a day I will never forget for so many reasons and it was the beginning of the end of the most frightening episode of my life.
Chemo didn’t effect me how I expected. There are so many other drugs given alongside chemo to counteract the effects of chemo itself, it’s often the side effects of these drugs that you feel the most. For example, the steroids I was given gave me so much energy that the morning after my first chemo I cleaned out my entire wardrobe! I felt very little nausea and was never physically sick but the tiredness was absolutely real once the steroids wore off.
If you know anyone going through chemo I think the best thing you can do is to offer help that will allow them to rest. Be it providing meals or watching children, that’s the most valuable gift you can give. 😘
