Happy New Year!

1 01 2016

We thought it cannot get any better with seeing VW buses everywhere in Australia, and then we saw this: A parade of eighteen kombis set up in the front garden of a property on the Bellarine Peninsula, a few kilometers east of Geelong. We did not have much time, so I just took a few snapshots from the fence and did not ring the bell to ask what this is all about. But googling for the address later on solved the mystery: This is the head quarters of “Hire-a-kombi”, a new VW rental company which recently moved here from Melbourne. Their website shows they have five VW buses on the road and ready for rental. So the rest will be future additions to the fleet or sources of spare parts. Wishing you all a great New Year and all the best for you and your families and friends!

Happy New Year to you, too! Just visisted your blog – good to see you are already on the road with your family and the bus. Berlin is snow covered and at -11 °C, based on the news from friends at home. We are still enjoying the summer in Australia, but far away from our bus.
