Sell the Rusty Sedan!

He smiled as he said ‘I’ve a plan!
Sell the house and the rusty sedan!’
‘Tis crazy she thought,
But that came to naught,
Now the two of them live in a van.

With a head and a heart full of song,
They knew this was where they belong.
So they packed up their kit,
To the boss said, ‘I quit!’
And to everyone else said ‘So long!’

Now they laugh and pretend they’re elites.
As they travel long roads and high streets,
Past perplexing places,
With smiles on their faces,
Thinking “Our life is full of fine treats!’

Our journey around Australia commenced on Friday October 31, 2014 and saw us travel through ever state and territory over a 20 month period.  We had the most amazing time and would do it all again in a heart beat.

    1. Thanx Calen,

      It took a bit of work, but perhaps not as much as you might think. I spend 30 minutes putting down my original thoughts, then I left it for several hours. When I came back, it only took another 30 minutes to ‘polish’ it up.

      1. Will be checking out your travel blog. I also have one but won’t be posting again until late July when we hope to head to some warmth for 5 weeks.


I'd love to hear your thoughts . . .
