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.
This week marks 2 years since we picked up our van from @jayconewcastle 🙌
What an adventure it has been! We have dragged him over corrugations, through rivers, onto beach’s and traveled thousands upon thousands of kilometres! He has kept us warm, sheltered us from the rain and kept us cool when the temperature soared!
We love our nimble little van. Cheers 🥂 and to many more adventures to come!
Anyone else a fan of Brickman! Dumb question, surely everyone is?! Well when we heard that the WA Maritime Museum had an exhibition combining @lego and shipwrecks called “Brickwrecks” we had to check it out!!! 😆
Roughly 250 kms south of Kununurra lies the Bungle bungle caravan park. Not really knowing what to expect, we booked 2 nights here hoping we would be able to see a couple of sights in and around the Bungle bungles!
Talking to a lot of other travellers we began to realised that many camped overnight in one of the National park campsites so we were a little worried that we wouldn’t have time to see all that we wanted to, we even considered an organised 4wd bus as Adam was pretty sick of corrugations! 😂😂😂
However, there was no need to worry, starting at 6.30am from the caravan park we were at the visitors centre by 7.45 for breakfast! We made it to our first gorge (Cathedral Gorge) by 8.45 and from there were at Echidna chasm by 11. We had a little lunch and did the walk in perfect time to see the sun shine directly Into the chasm! It was such a hot day that after 2 gorges we were pretty much done! We were back in the aircon of our van between 1 and 2pm! 😂
It’s a really interesting spot, I have literally never seen anything like it! We’d definitely like to go back spend a little more time here one day. The helicopter trip is meant to be incredible, but for now we have been able to check out the highlights!
Cathedral Gorge is where you see all the bungle bungle like formations! Stay tuned I have plenty of pics! 😂😂...
