Travel on any major thoroughfare in Australia these days and you will encounter a range of the most exciting, enticing vehicles you could imagine. Caravans and campervans of all shapes and sizes are being towed endlessly around the country as their occupants unwind and relax into retirement.
Some of these mobile homes are fantastically large and luxurious, others more fundamental depending on the personal tastes and budgets of the occupants. But one thing they do all have in common – these retired ‘grey nomads’ are out to have a great time and to enjoy every day to the fullest.
Passing a rest area on one of my recent travels through the highlands of Victoria, I was delighted by the advertisement left on the roadside by one gypsy couple. I am not sure if the intent was to invite fellow grey nomads to pull in and stay awhile, or just to have fun. Meet Happy Herb and Cool Granny!
Aren’t they delightful?
Are you a grey nomad? Travelling about, enjoying your well earned retirement. Would you consider stopping for a chat and a cuppa if you passed this couple?
