Sounds like a fantastic dream. Would love to do the same but....... make sure you have your contraception worked out. A goodie for the travelling couple is Implanon. You just never know what might come over you on top of those big sand dunes!

a good contraceptive is to keep a five cent piece firmly wedged between the knees

Is this another bulk billing exercise or just an excuse to claim your puter as a tax deduction. I think Mrs Kidz should give you a good talking to.

I have meet a few now doing this if have trade or willing to work at anything sugest look for work in isolated areas where hard to get people and stay a month or to or longer in these areas and really see them

ask some of the temp agencies if work in available in the areas you want to go even if its only petrol money it helps and on the plus side if your still talking when you get back you know its for life

Wish i'd done that when we were first married - wanted to the home & 4 kids bit back then and now want to travel, but too old to do just any work. My daughter and her boyfriend travelled when young - got an old "fold up" style caravan that progressively fell to bits as they went through central Oz, down through the Eastern States, then on to Tassie. Abandoned the van in Tassie, and set up a mobile home out of the back of the Troopy. She worked a winter on the Pieman River - included working the car ferry (jokes about who pays the Ferryman er ferrywoman in a few travel articles). Then from Tas up to Qld before stopping to work again. So long as one of them got work, both if they could, they'd work for a few months with a bit of local sightseeing, then when they'd save up enough, on with the travels. They found work easier to find "off season" eg winter in Tas and wet season far north Qld - less competition. What a life! Good luck with the travels.
