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…

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…

Maiden Voyage

Happy Camper Pizza has officially hit the streets of Melbourne, Australia! Our first night and the dough roller broke down, the oven malfunctioned and Remi was not a happy camper. But in the end he and his incredible assistants managed to churn out a few yummy pizzas. Thanks to everyone who joined in Allegra’s (our…

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…

32/52: Outback Roadhouse

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.” Juju: Rock collecting beside the Sturt Desert Peas Mowgli and Coco: Lego buddies    As we cruised along the Stuart Highway through the centre of Australia, outback roadhouses were our oases of food, fuel and accommodation. The distances between them are several hundred…

Snapshots from Uluru

When we visited Australia’s Red Centre, the Optus phone tower had just been fire bombed. Alas I couldn’t post any photographs of Uluru (as known by its traditional owners, the Anangu.) In all honesty, trying to watch the sunset with our kids was hell, hence no family shots. But it was worth it. We are so…
