Finally, the day has come.
Once we returned the keys of the apartment to the owner, a second house was waiting for us at the entrance.
After long hours of cleaning, tinkering and fitting out, our 1982 Nissan Urvan is ready! Certainly less spacious, but so warm.
We really liked this van for all its equipment: a “pop top” roof that makes possible to stand on your feet in the van without any problem, a sofa convertible into bed easily, a gas cooker allowing to cook inside the van in case of bad weather, a fridge running on gas or electricity, a tap connected to a water tank, a solar shower, and many spaces for the storage.
Despite his 35 years, we count on him to make us travel the desired route – about 9000 km! After several visits to different garages, we try to put our house on wheels in the best conditions.
The idea is to go down to Melbourne, then continue to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road. Then go back to the Australian desert to discover Alice Springs before going to Cairns; then back down all the Queensland for a return trip to Sydney.
Between each of these big cities, many stops are planned but on this point, we prefer to do with the feeling and stop when we feel the place nice.
After consulting the instagram page of another van traveler – @cleocohen, her videos made me want a second travel company: a video drone!
I checked both, online and in store, to choose the one that corresponds most to me in terms of price and with the use I would make. So I chose the DJI Phantom 3 Standard with built-in camera.
On the link below, you could have a preview of his first flight up to Bondi Beach in Sydney.
Thanks to you who helped us through our crowdfunding, or just following my blog to grow softly but surely, our dream can finally come true … I hope you will enjoy the trip!
