Hey..Welcome Aboard to A Road Travelled!
So….you probably wondering why I started A Road Travelled? And you probably wondering who is the ‘mystery person’ called Social Humming Bird.
The truth is…I am like MANY people out there. We are a family of 4. We like to go on road trips/adventures. We enjoy camping. And like MANY people out there – we just don’t have the money for the finer things in life. However, we found that many of our experiences are ones money can’t buy. After all – while the idea of enjoying cocktails by a 5 star hotel pool sounds inviting …it doesn’t beat the meteor shower we saw a couple of months ago. #priceless
Like many families that are strapped for cash, we have our ups and downs when it comes to travel. Like the time we went to Sharks Bay and wanted to pack light! So instead of taking camp beds we took an air mattress. We had our own little science experiment which we labelled…..Temperature VS inflatables 101. In our case – the score was Temperature 1 and Inflatable 0! We spent the night sleeping on clay and shells. At this point sleeping in a 5 star hotel does come to mind! 😉
Believe it or not – I have been writing for a while. And if you are up for a little online adventure you can visit my old site. The fact is – the reason I started writing was to help others new to the area , who are travelling as a family, and are strapped for cash. Spending money on mistakes is not in the budget, so I hope you learn a few things from our mistakes which probably could save you a fortune in the long run!
Outside of that….I came up with the name because I love travelling down roads that not many people travel. I ask the questions – what is down there! And then – I go to find out. Of course, I make sure I do a little homework because the last thing I want to do is take a drive down a isolated area and find the road has given way. Which – BY THE WAY – almost happened to us in one of our 4×4 experiences.
Any how….hope you enjoy your stay AND don’t forget to subscribe and like some posts. Doesn’t cost you anything but it will be a huge help to me to reach more people like you and you will be kept up to date on the next post! 😉
