This is Gatsby, the newest member of our little tribe. His mumma rejected him shortly after birth. He was left for 2 days in the hope they'd pair up, but unfortunately that didn't happen. We've now taken him in and have the pleasure of raising him by hand. He's only 3 days old, and is gonna need lots of love (and milk)! #farmlife #farmwork #88days #bull #calf #travellingadventures #westernaustralia
I used to cringe when people referred to groups of friends as 'family', but when you live, eat, sleep, work, shit and drink together it's hard not to see them like that. It's been a sad week saying goodbye to this lot but it is finally time to move on! From the day ones to the new ones, you've made the past 5 months of farm work in Mildura one of my best travelling exaperiences so far.
Now for a cheeky snowboarding trip to Queenstown with the boys before a week in Bali with some of this lot and a month of exploring some more of Indonesia with @hellienaa 🌋🏖🌏

[I am a Charlotte on a shallot farm. Heh.] In the past couple of months I've had a bunch of different jobs. I've been picking and packing capsicums. I've been picking chilis and planting pumpkin seedlings. I've been a bartender, a hostel night cleaner, and I even landed a job as a mural painter.
This week I find myself working on a cushty little shallot farm. Run by this adorable bickering old couple who remind me of my grandparents. We pack the shallots in their garage. When we go picking in the field we sit in this little metal machine that pootles along really slowly while we pull up the shallot shoots. Next door's dog George comes to sit in there with us. He has alot to say- I only wish I could speak dog!
Our farmer bosses are so sweet. They gave us bourbon after work, and beer and barramundi to take home! Ah. <3
He likes his coffee 90% cream and sugar. I drink mine black.
He likes basketball and guns . I like to paint and watch him run around the court screaming “okay, last shot and we can go!” about 30 times before we actually leave.
I always thought the phrase “opposites attract” meant my significant other and I would disagree often, and have few common interests, but God has a way of making things work in perfect harmony.
I am thankful for the balance you bring to my life. I am thankful for the security, the support, and the Christ like love you give me. you keep me grounded while simultaneously allowing me to stay wild.
How refreshing it is to find someone so genuine who waters your soul, protects your heart, and fears the lord. they are inimitable.
Lots more sheepwork - 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 but you’ve already seen loads of that so thought some tractor 🚜selfies would be a bit different! 🚜🌟🚜🌟🚜🌟🚜🌟🚜🌟🚜🌟🚜 (Also, this boomerang reminds me of those hydraulic dinosaurs you’d see in the museums that would just roar a little at you before resetting... 🦖) #88days #rural #farmlife #visastuff #australia #queensland #farmers #tractortime
🇫🇷 La campagne....ces souvenirs d’enfance, prendre le temps de respirer, regarder autour de soi, écouter les oiseaux, prendre le temps de se poser les bonnes questions...tout simplement prendre du temps pour soi, tant de choses qui ne sont pas possible ou du moins qui s’y prêtent moins lorsqu’on se trouve en ville
Et vous, êtes vous plutôt ville ou campagne ;) ————————————————————————🇬🇧 Countryside....childhood’s memories, take your time to breath, to look around you, to hear birds, ask yourself good questions, simply take time for your happiness, your well being, many things which are not possible or more complicated when you live in the city... And you, you prefer countryside or city
