I believe it was Robert Louis Stevenson who said “To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.” Clearly he never flew Economy Class with Emirates.
So we’re back home, leaving 90º temperatures in Perth to step off at Heathrow at 5am…cold, tired and down to the last pair of pants
But we’re home…and it feels good.
So what has the last month taught us, if anything? Well…
1) Australia is a diverse and beautiful place. You should all make the effort and visit. Australians are great people…I only wish they wouldn’t mention the cricket.
2) We are fortunate to have so many great friends. Not just those we’ve met on this holiday (and who we miss) but also those of you who have been reading this blog.
3) Christmas is a time for families. It’s not a time for walking around an aquarium wishing you were at home playing Pictionary. It should also be dark and cold
4) Penguins are the coolest creatures on earth. We would like to buy one. And a koala. And a python. But not a wombat.
5) Never ever try and be clever by taking two large cases on an escalator!
So that’s the end of our holiday blog. Many thanks to all of you for reading and contributing but mostly thanks to Kerry for doing all the planning, arranging and putting up with my incessant weather bulletins.
Until the next holiday…bye.
