Taking the Leap

It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted. Starting a new business and juggling motherhood has left me burning the candle at both ends. To update you on our Airstream journey and what you’ve missed, I’d love to share a recent interview I did with Of Kin about our adventures so far. I’ve missed you…

Splendour

We were lucky to be handpicked to cater at this year’s Splendour In The Grass music festival. It was a financial gamble for a little pizza van like ours, but we felt safe in the hands of Rafael Rashid (Taco Truck/Beatbox Kitchen) at his revolutionary Truck Stop – which featured eight top quality food trucks…

Pizza in the Pine Forest

It’s not every day you get to host a pizza party in a pine forest. Let alone for someone as special as photographer Kate Berry from hellokateberry. It was a whole family event, which included a camp fire, wild mushroom foraging for the pizza toppings and a bucket load of marshamallows. And even if we say…

Booktown

When a friend suggested we team up our Airstreams for a weekend at Clunes Booktown Festival, Remi and I were intrigued… A whole town dedicated to the simple pleasure of curling up with a great book? Would anyone lift their nose out of their book long enough to eat pizza? It was worth finding out. Every…

Best Birthday Cake Ever

We just celebrated Remi’s 40th Birthday with the most amazing cake ever! One of my Instagram friends, Mandie (@missgroovygirl) made this replica of our Happy Camper Pizza food van. And it made everyone’s day! The kids admired it and poked and prodded for hours before I could bring myself to put the candles in and carve it…

The Hills Are Alive Festival

Nestled among the rolling  hills of South Gippsland, Melbourne, is a little farm which every year comes alive with the sound of music. The Hills Are Alive is a two-day camping and music festival with a friends-of-friends attendance policy that makes it the most special music festival we’ve ever been to. We were lucky to…

Molluscs and Pizza

Our first corporate gig, the Port Phillip Mussel Festival for the Bank of Melbourne. It was a seafood street party packed with non-stop music and buckets of local mussels. And yummy seafood pizza! Our pizza menu included a Seafood Special – a mix of prawns, mussels and calamari with napoli and garlic. We also had Prawn & Spicy…

Living spontaneously

I am the antithesis of prepared. I am the person who books an International flight and manically hunts for my passport on the morning of departure. I am the person who travels through South America for a year without reading the Lonely Planet guide that’s in my backpack. I am the person who tows a…

Common Threads

“Our country is at a turning point. It has to be, even if some of us aren’t willing to see it yet. There is no way we can continue going the way we are, consuming the way we do, living lives mapped out for us by governments and societal norms. Most of us our drowning….

NYE on the Hill

Happy belated New Year everybody! Our 2014 started on a high at NYE on the Hill, a 3-day camping and music festival on a farm in Victoria. Happy Camper Pizza was invited along to feed the friendly, music-loving crowd. It was the perfect excuse to hit the road again with the kids now that our other…

Another kind of life?

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.” Juju, Mowgli and Coco: All in absolute bliss playing in the beautiful white sands of Currarong Beach (Jervis Bay) on a drive from Sydney to Melbourne.    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what kind of life I want for my children….
