Back in Perth

Arrived at last after good flights with Singapore Airlines. No stopover this year, just a couple of hours at Singapore Airport. We’ve spent the last few days with our friends John and Diane who as usual looked after us so very well taking us out and all of us eating and drinking far too much.

The campervan we bought whilst in the UK was waiting for us at John and Diane’s house. Buying a campervan at the other side of the world on a limited budget is not easy. By chance one night after much searching we came across just what we were looking for – a Toyota Hiace Hi-top not too far from Perth. A phone call introduced us to Chris and Sally who had owned the campervan for several years. Originally from the UK they had travelled round Australia for one year and then used it for general use and holidays. The van was their pride and joy so was very well looked after. Chris and Sally were so helpul sorting out the paperwork, delivering it to Perth and putting just about everything in it that we would need for a long trip. What wasn’t in it Diane supplied. We couldn’t have been more pleased when we saw it for the first time.

The camper is a 2.5 litre, petrol, longwheelbase and is fully equipped with fridge, sink, cooker, microwave and loads of storage. It is fully alarmed, even has a safe on board, roo bars and windscreen protection, great air con (absolutely essential) and outside awning for shade. We’ve added a few bits and pieces, put on a years RAC breakdown cover, sorted out paperwork and tax with the DVLA and we’re ready to go. Oh, and the mileage on it is a mere 300,000 miles!!!

We were going to leave Perth on Sunday but John got 2 tickets for the 20/20 cricket Australia v Sri Lanka night game in Perth. Just too good to miss, there was a great atmosphere and Australia were well beaten. It must give us Brits some hope for the forthcoming summer Ashes.
