THE WEEKLY #30: WHY I WAS SLEEPING IN A CAR

THE WEEKLY #30: WHY I WAS SLEEPING IN A CAR

For thirty weeks now I have been keeping you updated with my adventures and my life in this weekly blog post. I have been blogging for almost 10 months and the one year anniversary of the blog is looming in April. Everything keeps evolving and I am loving the creative process.

Solo Roadtripping to Torquay

This week I packed my few belongings into a car and headed off on an interstate road trip journey. I traveled from Adelaide in South Australia to Torquay in Victoria along the famous Great Ocean Road. Sleeping in the back of a Hyundai i30 on a piece of padded foam enabled me to wake up next to the beach and also to enjoy free accommodation. To be honest I prefer sleeping in the car more than camping as it gives you a lot more flexibility in terms of timing and location.

Each morning I awoke within yards of the ocean and enjoyed the rawness of my travels, watching tourists travel on 50 seat buses fly by me in another world entirely. I parked most nights in beach or lookout parking lots and never had any unwelcome knocks on my window during the night. One evening I even slept in the town center of Port Fairy without being disturbed.

What is this Vlogging?

I have a pretty laid back personality and friends often ask me if I ever get excited. I do get excited but am not a very animated person when it comes to expressions. Why am I telling you this? Because, despite my lack of animosity and extroversion, I decided I would create a guide to the Great Ocean Road in a vlog style video. Vlogging is a lot of work and I really enjoy watching some of my outgoing friends create daily awesomeness like Martin Solhaugen on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/martinsolhaugen

By the way if you don’t know what vlogging is; it’s pretty much recording your life, a trip, an experience and documenting it all through video. There are many different types on youtube and it is a medium that is continuing to grow in popularity. I don’t think I have the time to dedicate to vlogging as such but I am going to try and put together a few more videos throughout 2017 of my travels and adventures. You can check out the 28 videos on my Youtube Channel by clicking the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClsdkrYpj0Seb2hr6su409g

Stay posted for the 11 minute Great Ocean Road Video Guide Vlog to surface in the next few days. This week I am working flat out on some projects but the weather is heating up in a big way in Adelaide so I know I will end up at the beach.

Hope you are all still remember your 2017 New Year’s Resolutions and are all over them!

Especially for a long time, the transportation box tormented, it was a very long time that the service station went over and over and I was told there was nothing to do, old is already, lives its age and so on. It is great that I then decided to spit on their speeches and look for myself in the internet, find a good article and find how to solve transfer box problems https://avtotachki.com//en/chto-takoe-razdatochnaya-korobka-i-dlya-chego-nuzhna . I strongly recommend looking and seeing anyone driving particularly old cars now or if vice versa you have just a car and try, as it is an excellent way and approach for me, be sure to read in depth and to learn it It's the best way for you to understand it. Reading about such a transfer box is very simple and available. I sincerely hope it'll be cool and beneficial to you as it once was to me.
