At Apollo, we love receiving your happy campervanning stories – and we love it even more when these stories are from repeat customers like Nicole and Alice of France! We’re delighted to share the following story from their three trips around Australia in an Apollo so far:
Our 3 trips with Apollo :
– 2003 : a long road trip from Perth to Darwin, and from Cairns to Brisbane.
– 2009 : From Melbourne to Adelaide, and Kangaroo Island.
– 2010 : A long and wonderful tour in Tasmania (6 weeks).
All these exciting journeys were possible thanks to our campervans Apollo(Hitop) : discoveries and total freedom.
From France, we have to make about 20.000 km before starting our australian trip. A long flight, long and exhausting. When we pick up our van, we appreciate the comfort of the vehicle and the freedom it brings. Go where we want, at our own pace… the best way to discover such a vast, amazing country.
And so many wonderful memories! Waking up in a park with hundred of singing birds, with wallabies, wombats eating grass near the van, or with murmur of waves. A big yellow bird jumping into the vehicle and walking quietly under the table during breakfast. A real magic moment! Another one when a Tasmanian Devil stopped near the open door and stared at us a few moments. The van allows us to be closer to nature.
After a busy day, we also like to spend time inside, talking, watching the scenery or writing our travel log in the middle of nowhere.
It’s always with regret that we leave the van (our “home”) at the end of the journey… Traveling is a pleasure thanks to the vehicle and also to Apollo team (very friendly and helpful).
And now guess what will be our next destination, our next trip ???
In december, we’ll go back to Australia and spend 3 months traveling with a new Apollo van… from Alice Springs to Perth. A new adventure awaits us…
