As we continue our overland trek in East Africa and cross in to Uganda, our first order of business is a highly important and very public game of mini golf which requires us to dodge quad bikes… but not before we learn about the importance of breastfeeding through the medium of dance.
Also, our truck-mate Deb gets a new ‘do courtesy of the girls.
Yes yes, I know. Too long between videos. I can promise it won’t take as long for the next one, but don’t expect it to be a regular thing! They’ll be done when they get done.
This episode is mostly dedicated to the boggy inefficiency of Kenyan drivers in Lake Nakuru.
Also, a rhino marks his territory. Definitively.
Another safari episode! So much African animal spotting!
Also, apparently Kat thinks it’s getting hot in here.
One for the African animal lovers! In this episode we safari through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and have some amazing encounters with the native wildlife. We see some of the big cats up close and get to watch the lions hunt and play.
Also, how cute are baby lions?! SO CUTE! 😀
In this brief episode of Here Comes The Planet we cross the border from Tanzania in to Kenya… eventually! Then we head to the Rift Valley for picturesque views and roadside vendors.
Also, I can’t remember if there have been swears in past episodes, but there’s one in this one, so language warning! 🙂
In this episode of Here Comes The Planet we take a cultural tour around Mto wa Mbu Village in Tanzania. This consists of walking through the village’s farms and sampling an amazing array of delicious food, learning about the village’s history and entertaining its children.
We also watched some local artists at work, sampled banana beer and found the village nightclub!
Also – DISCO TOTO!!!
We break from our 2013 travel videos to bring you something closer to home.
As you may have read on the blog, recently Amanda and her mother Jen went on a “classic Australian road trip” around Victoria. Now that the exclusivity contract I had with the video’s producer has expired (“Don’t put it online before we show it to mum at Christmas!”) we are pleased to present this epic journey to you at last.
Split over three parts, we start just across the Victorian/New South Wales border in Albury, with its “iconic” Hume Dam. Also in this episode, a cruise up the Murray River on the Emmylou paddlesteamer in Echuca.
Also, you’ll all be happy to know we’ve started writing* a new horror film based on this episode: “Cry of the Cockatoo”.
* We haven’t.
Continuing the road trip, Amanda and Jen visit a pheasant farm in Swan Hill, as well as a deserted winery.
Also, we learn some fun facts about birds!
Concluding the road trip, Amanda and Jen travel from Swan Hill through to Castlemaine and back home to Melbourne, stopping at gardens and historical houses along the way.
Also, there’s a big fish.
What did you think of their road trip adventure? Have you been on any epic family road trips yourself? Let us know in the comments. 😉
