Sandwiched between a cyclone and a lockdown

From Toowoomba we went to Xmas in Wollongong 2020. Then we decided to move to Perth. Due to border closures we had to spend 2 weeks outside Wollongong to get to the Gold Coast, then we drove all the way to Darwin where we had to spend 2 weeks in order to get into WA.

From there we drove to Broome, Karratha, Exmouth, and a tropical low is approaching while the despot has put people into a Perth lockdown over 1 case of a virus. Absolute madness. Can’t stay in Exmouth, won’t go to Perth. I think we will drive to Geraldton. Or maybe move to Darwin, who knows, if we’re allowed… Australia is not the free country it once was.
