HDP: I’m Living in a Palace!

Well, you see, it’s like this…

Some of you might know that we’ve travelled around Australia for the last seven months in our caravan.  It’s a ‘humble little home’ away from home and we LOVE it!

41 Mile Bore R-A, NT, (5 of 57) August 201528

Here it is!

So, you can imagine, what my first reaction was when I walked into our home.

German Palace 2012, (1 of 1) May 201202

My goodness, it’s a palace! 🙂

The room! I could waltz in the kitchen! I could sit the lounge and not have the dinning table in front of me. That first night, I could even turn in bed without bowling Mr Oz over!! lol

So, obviously I am not living in a real palace but compared to the size of our caravan, it sure feels like one!

Just a bit of fun today as we work our way through the unpacking to find many ‘surprises’ of things we’ve bought along the way and forgotten!

I am loving being back in my usual surrounds and catching up with family and friends. Most of all my little granddaughter, who only took about thirty minutes to remember her ‘Nana’. That was worth coming back for 😍

PS: The ‘palace’ is from our trip to Germany in 2012 –  Linderhof Palace in Ettal.

PPS: My apologies – I know I’ve overlooked saying ‘Thank You’ to a few ‘Followers’ during my travels. It has not been intentional. I will pick up my game now that I’m home.

I do just two posts a week: The Hump Day Post (HDP) on Wednesdays about anything and everything and I take part in the Weekly Photo Challenge (WPC) on Saturdays or Sundays.


About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)

    I love to go away but I always feel so relaxed when I get back home and just relish the space. Your caravan is so much bigger than our camper but I can unerstand the feeling would be the same.

  3. You have had a tremendous trip, but I can only imagine how much you are enjoying being back home with everything where you want it including closets. 🙂 But, most of all, a little girl needs her Nana.

    Sonia, you had me worried with the “palace”. All those rooms to clean! Glad you are enjoying your space, your place, as well as time with family and friends. “Home” is a special place and it is always good to get back, even after the most amazing journeys. Perhaps you will have future posts about some of the things you bought on your journey, and memories they have inspired, that you did not have time to blog about whilst travelling.

    • Sorry to have worried you with the cleaning of the ‘palace’ Ruth 🙂 That’s a great idea about writing future posts about the things I bought on the journey, ‘cos you’re right, I didn’t have time to blog about it all whilst travelling. It’s made me ponder whether I’d keep the blog running next time I travel for extended periods. The reason I say that is I’m suffering from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) as I took just over 9,000 photos and just adding the location and key words every night was such a big job before moving on to the next location. So, I don’t know. I either have to control my ‘shutter’ finger or take shorter holidays! 😕
