Overview

Living the dream! For many Australians that dream is packing up and travelling around this great land of ours. Maybe you are wondering why a book about travelling is called 'Closed On Tuesdays'? Travelling in the southern states of Australia, time and time again, we found businesses closed on Tuesdays. As tourists we found this inconvenient as we could not access their services.
At the end of 2001, I resigned from my job as a male Nurse at Innisfail District Hospital in Queensland, Australia. It was time to begin living the dream! My wife Rachel and I decided it was time to see more of this wonderful land of ours – Australia. Our plan was to sell our goods and chattels and live in our tent, until we could purchase a good second hand caravan. Then we would commence a touring holiday of this ‘Big Country’. I would supplement our funds by finding casual work as a nurse. Rachel would have a good break from being a Family Day Carer; which she had worked at for many years.
Some people thought we were mad; others would have loved to be bold enough to do the same thing. I think a lot of Australians have the same dream; to travel around Australia, and take their ‘home’ with them.
This eBook contains recollections of our time living the dream; with its many ups and downs.
Come along and join us on our journeys.
