We have managed to source a radiator for our car which has lowered the cost of replacing it considerably. It’ll be sent to the mechanics by Tuesday (hopefully!) so we’re holding tight in the free campsite/rest stop we’ve found.
Today we will stay at the rest stop and relax! We’ve got enough food for the next few days and we believe we’ve found a good spot at the camp.
We have become quite fond of the gentleman you can see in the background. He is Polish originally, he became a refugee and eventually ended up at Oxford University and studied Law and Medicine. He’s now a professor in Forensic Medicine in Paris, but spends a lot of time travelling Australia as he finds he gets more work done here- at least that’s what he tells the university!
He has made his own remedy for insect bites and has generously given me a bottle as I’ve been up all ours of the night with incredibly itchy and painful mosquito bites.
We are also happy to report that Jake’s awning made of tarp and two poles is holding the rain off! I took a small video to show that he is indeed dry and you can hear our neighbour chatting..you would almost believe that David Attenborough has joined us just by listening to him!
