When traveling on a shoestring budget, you learn to get creative in order to find ways to maximize your enjoyment of life on the road. We have found many such ways including free camping as opposed to caravan parking and packing a tucker box for the car instead of buying roadhouse lunches.
But my favorite by far is the DIY slushie.
It's been so hot that we are all craving refreshing refreshments, but most ice creams or icy drinks are $$$ . So we buy a bag of ice and a bottle of cordial and hey presto! As many yummy, freezy icy slushies as you can drink. The boys are expert 'bartenders' by now and we are loving spending the evenings playing uno, polishing rocks and drinking refreshing refreshments!
