Art Around Australia

Art Around Australia – Planning

Jan 14, 2024

I have calculated and researched that I will need approximately $30k per year to travel across this wide, brown land. So, how am I going to do it? At the moment, the plan is to keep my house and rent it out because I have a mortgage and I want somewhere to come back to. In the next few months, I am going to:

  • Find someone to rent my house, fully furnished and who is generous enough to take care of the two cats I’m leaving behind.
  • Sell all of the things I don’t want and don’t want to come back to – this will probably include my Mazda CX5
  • Get the dogs vaccinated and research any tick treatments they made need up north, that we don’t need down here in Victoria.
  • Create various streams of income to pay for the trip including creating things to sell at markets and online, including my mindful arts therapy books which are available on Amazon – search: mindful arts therapy activity books by Susan Day
  • Research the van I want and tell the universe to get it ready for me 🙂

What have I done so far?

  • I bought a secondhand, hardcover book of maps of Australia … lol … It might have only cost $10 but it could save me if the GPS goes down and there’s no internet. Plus, it gives me something tangible to hold and browse through looking at all the places I want to visit 🙂
  • Created a budget.
  • Told my family and watched their response… lol.

So, when am I going?

At present, I’m hoping to go by the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025. I may go sooner if things fall into place so keep your fingers crossed for me, please.
