We're off on holidays - my sister is getting married and we get to escape to Queensland for 2 weeks. Here's the diary of our trip....

Day ONE:
driving to Perth from DrearyTown -- 300 kms of dirt road before we finally hit the bitumen.
here are some pics:

Happy to report that all the wildlife stayed out of our way so the Pajero is still ding-free. We had one lunch-break/toilet stop, and listened to The Princess ask "Are we there yet?" for about 6 hours.
Note to self -- next time, bring the iPod.
We stayed overnight with a friend, watched the Dockers clean up the Brisbane Lions,and drove through the city centre -- kids were suitably amazed by all the tall buildings. I felt like a bit of a noob tourist until I saw the lady in the car next to me taking photos of the buildings (:

More later.
