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…

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…

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…

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…

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….

Road tripping again

My youngest baby has lost his baby face Mowgli: Bug boy   Our road trip from Melbourne up to Tathra for the Airstream Rally was such a breeze in comparison to our long road trip through…

First ever Airstream Rally “Down Under”

Somewhere in-between breaking down in the Northern Territory and launching Happy Camper Pizza, we managed to take part in a historical event – Australia’s first ever Airstream Rally. Officially, it was the inaugural rally of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI) “Down Under” Unit – an Aussie arm of the Airstream club started in 1955….

Happy Camper

Our beautiful Vintage Airstream, Wallabee, is going to be off the road for some time. She has some significant issues with her subframe. That means the end of our full-time Australian road trip until we can find the money and someone with the expertise to fix her. (If there’s anyone in Melbourne who knows about…

Bittersweet homecoming

I haven’t posted anything for a couple of months because I’ve been feeling really disappointed that we quit our road trip around Australia so early. One of the main reasons was because Wallabee was sick – she’s having major chassis issues and at the time we didn’t have a clue what was wrong. Things were…
