This morning, Compass Camps Airlines landed in Brazil, ready for a festival party atmosphere for the final day of our travels.

I’m a Camper, Get Me Out of Here!

This morning’s wake-up whistle was accompanied with a big old “G’day campers!”, because Compass Camps Airlines had landed in Australia! Campers spent the morning walking across the field backwards, because that’s apparently what they do down under?!

Afterwards, we enjoyed an Egyptian picnic in the sandy desert of Roanhead, […]
