Welcome to my blog. I am Rachel, my Husband is Rod and along with our Dog ‘Bosun’ & our cat ‘Maloo’ we have been exploring Australia on an open ended lap of this amazing, beautiful, diverse country. Currently we are taking a break back in Cairns while I take care of some health issues. While my blog was supposed to be about our travels it has mostly been about my journey not through Australia but my journey through my grief. My only child, my Son Charlie passed away in August 2016 from Epilepsy aged 24.
