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…

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…

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….

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…

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…

Stuck in the middle of nowhere

We’ve been forced to take it slow on this caravan adventure of ours. Although we’re usually the first up (around 5am if my little monsters have anything to do with it), we’re certainly the last to get going. By the time we have breakfast, get everyone dressed, explore the local playground, pack up and go,…

On the road

We’re one week into a 2000 kilometre road trip from Melbourne to the Red Centre and a laissez-faire attitude has already kicked in – out of necessity. So far we’ve made it just 9 hours drive from home. From a snapped bracket on our hitch on day one, to losing all our marker lights on day…

Whole Larder Love

We’ve had an amazing weekend among the pines in Central Victoria, feasting on saffron milk caps and hanging out with an inspiring bunch of people. We gatecrashed a workshop by Rohan Anderson from Whole Larder Love and his fabulous partner Kate Berry, who first introduced us to their magical forest back in Autumn. Rohan grows, gathers and hunts nearly all the…
