Queensland – Victoria

Trip continued to far north Queensland. Stopped in Townsville for AMT. Wanted to defend my title from last year πŸ‘ work done 


5 more hours more north was our final destination – Cairns πŸ‘ lovely hot weather as usual. Couldnt wait to meet my last year housing family and have a great time again!!! Loved spending two weeks at their house as it is settled in beautiful rainforest. Such a nice nature 😁 Louie – was friendly funny dog bringing smile to my face everyday. Louie with Andre


Spent nice afternoon walking with our housing lady 


Food at the courts was the best best best of all tournaments so far because our new friend Kristyna from Czech Republic was in charge of it πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ yummy yummmyyyy πŸ˜‹one dinner at her place and our tummies were sooo full 😁 traditional czech and slovak food – duck with sweeet cabagge 


Dessert cant be skipped 😊😊😊


Leaving this amazing atmosphere,weather and nice people was difficult but we will be back for sure


We started our trip back to Brissy in late evening. Jozef was driving all night until 7.30 am and I was sleeping on the back seat. Then we swapped and I drove !!!! For two hours…. then small break and another three hours 😳and break again and last two hours 😱😱 yeees πŸ™‚ my first BIG driving πŸ™‚ was proud of myself…. We spent few days in Brisbane training and exploring the city. Didnt let me down… Brisbane is beautiful


And Southbank in the city


Bought new shoes πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


Thats for tennis… and what about this?


​​
Aftet that we were ready to take next step and drive to Melbourne. About the same distance like from Cairns to Brissy. This trip wasnt as smooth as it thought it will be. Its a long story… well, so I rather begin…

We took inland route. So first ‘bad’ thing happened in Goondiwindi where two guys stopped us on the road and said there is huge tragical accident and we cant go thru main road. They said we should wait for few more hours but we couldnt stop for that long. It was around 11pm and all night ahead of us. They reccommended some ‘back’ road …well, full of huuuge holes on the road , very narrow and dangerous because of kangaroos πŸ™ˆπŸ˜¬πŸ˜¬πŸ˜¬ This road was maybe 80 km long plus coming back to main road was maybe 50km more πŸ˜†really enjoyable driving…. We thought all bad is gone but πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ morning stop in city called Parkes where we were having early lunch in one pizza place and I was browsing thru twitter news where I found article about terrifying superstorm whic hitted Parkes this night!!!😧 Fallen trees and walls around the city… I could see it with my eyes how it was destroyed when we drove thru city later!!! How lucky we were -> thanks for bad accident we drove thru Parkes just few hours after terrible superstorm…uff … road continues… city of Forbes – suddenly detour because 100km of the road was closed due to flooding earlier in the month… so another 150km detour 😊yay enjoying some country roads…Jozef got tired finally after all night driving and I took a chance and started to drive. Well after 10 minutes of perfect road I turned left and suddenly I was on narrow road with holes ( similar to road we drove at night)…I survived 80 km hilly crazy road . Finally I was on highway near Gundagai and could use cruisecontrol and relax a bit! Ooo what a drive! Jozef had a good rest and I had enough after 5 hours of driving… Jozef drove finally thru Melbourne to our destination Langwarrin. All went perfect until fuel sound beeped. Car shaked and we decided to turn left from Eastlink highway to get some fuel. On the way back to Eastlink I made mistake while navigating and we ended up driving different route – not coming closer to Eastlink. Jozef got a bit angry 😀😬😭 that we are loosing our time trying to find the right way… luckily we continued and wanted to come back to Eastlink when we could see accident of 4 cars on the right side and huuge stopping traffic behind it. Police and ambulance were coming and we realized this accident happened just minutes ago and how lucky we were to go away from this road because we could maybe be involved in the accident πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜¬πŸ™ˆ !!! Everything happens for a reason. Even bad stuff like running out of fuel! After 26 hours of driving we arrived to our lovely family in Langwarrin!!! Halleluyah ( I dont know how to write it properly sorry)πŸ˜‚

Quick change of clothes in the morning  ( from tropics to cold weather) and we were ready for our 3 hours drive to Bendigo !!! Loved playing here coz I won one round and I played really really well … hopefully more matches like this one in the future πŸ™‚ Had so much fun with our new trio : Tere-ZlochoBains😍😍😍 ( one random lady joined us  and she ate more than all of us together )πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺ


Plus maybe changing career … what do you think?

​​
Bendigo is really nice!!!


And met this lovely lovely doggie 😍😍😍 such a gentleman and only 1 year old!!! 😱😱😱😱


Last but no least is big thanks to my Bendigo housing family from last year !!! We could enjoy their company again and use their house … thank you for making my stay in Australia possible 😘😘😘 Such a lovely and funny people Jill and Kieran😚love you guys

Next tournament is Canberra , hopefully a bit warmer than Bendigo πŸ™‡β€β™€οΈ
