I had two days to play with. Two whole days where I had no commitments, no appointments and no plans. Deciding it was time for a road trip and weekend away I decided on Mudgee. Yeah, most people would choose the Central Coast, the blue Mountains or even the city but I had done all of those options so many times.... plus the Mudgee Running Festival was on this particular weekend! My decision was made and I informed my hubby of the plans. 

Since we only had two days with my husband off work we had to make it count.

So I started planning....

We love road trips! There is something about being able to chill in the car and let your brain relax as you aimlessly watch the scenery pass you by. Our children on the other hand, not so much....

With the kids it is "Are we nearly there?", "I'm hungry", "Mum, Brianna is looking at me!"....

So we decided to take a much desired road trip from Melbourne to Sydney - without the kids!

Our aim was to do the whole trip, including flights one way (Sydney to Melbourne), accomodation, and travel for under $400 for 4 days.... sound impossible? It isn't!
