Thanks for dropping in and welcome to the home of the Tales of a Blonde Nomad, our Australian photographic travel blog. For the few years Alan and I have been heading off with our caravan on as many trips as we can, accompanied by two very spoilt Spoodles called Flash and Goldie. I document our travels primarily for our own use, but many people find the information helpful when planning their own trips.
During our travels we keep finding lots of beautiful places that always inspire me to pull out a camera to capture the essence of each location. Sometimes the weather is not perfect when we visit, but I include the photos in the blog to document the visit. Occasionally the timing, weather and other things are in alignment and I am proud to have captured some beautiful landscape images on our travels. Some of my best images are available for purchase from the landscape gallery on this site.
Searching the Tales of a Blonde Nomad
I have included additional search functions to allow searching for particular topics within the blog. When reading a post, the side bar on the right will show three search options:
1. Search with a Keyword
The search bar is located on the top right hand allows free text entry to search for a particular word. For example searching for "diva" will return the post on Port Lincoln on the Eyre Peninsula because the town has a life size statue of Makybe Diva along the explanade.
2. Search for Tales by Location
All of my travel stories are ordered by state and specific area. Click on the Plus Sign to the left of the Tales of a Blonde Nomad category to reveal a list of states and locations with articles.
3. Using the "Articles by Date" drop down box
This option will show a month by month view of posts, it is not hard to see that we like to do our long trips in autumn!
Please note that while we freely share out experiences, any advice given is based only on our personal opinion and preferences. Readers are advised to seek professional advice on caravanning and towing matters. Our reviews of accommodation options are based on our personal preferences using the criteria stated. One of the great things about travelling is that there is no right or wrong answer and different people like different things - in our case we like freedom camps with lots of space around us and the ability to take dogs. We use Wikicamps (a phone app for Android and I phone) and the Camps Australia Wide books to help pick suitable locations.
If you have any comments, queries or suggestions for improvement please let me know!
