Since we had a few days off over the Easter period, Claire and I thought it would be awesome if we could get up to North Queensland to see Wayne & Rosie. Claire already had a few extra days off over the period as a result of the school break, so I took two extra days off in annual leave as well.
We left on our ‘road trip’ at about 7am on Friday morning and after a few tanks of fuel, about twelve and a half hours in the car seat, we arrived in Moranbah. To give you a guide of just how far that is, we drove from the Gold Coast to roughly parallel to Mackay, however about 2 hours West from there.
Which ever way you look at it, it is a very long drive to do in one day and I was so happy when we finally arrived. The first 800km just flew by. However the last 200-250km were just please hurry up and finish already!.
Here now, eating lots, sleeping lots, keeping out of the heat of the day and catching up with close friends; doesn’t get a whole lot better than that.
