End of Another Adventure

Leaving to go an a long journey always feels like freewheeling downhill on a bike. Returning from one feels like pedalling uphill. And so it is, as we clear Geoffrey out and pack up to come home. There is a part of us that wants to carry on travelling, in a bubble away from everyday life and another part wants to get back to see family and friends again.

At the end of an adventure we always try to think of the best part of the trip. Vietnam and Cambodia were fantastic, probably because it was so new to us. We’re surprised at just how much we have enjoyed ourselves on a shorter journey around NSW and Queensland this year. We have driven 4000kms and covered an area about the size of the UK and to be honest you could drive around roughly the same route for the next five years and still not see everything. Another part of this trip that we really enjoyed was the Hinterland just inland from Brisbane. We thought it might be a bit twee for us but it’s a really lovely area. Perhaps we’re just getting a bit soft with age! Top spot has got to go to Inskip Point. There’s great camping and a great bunch of people up there. It’s the sort of place that people return to year after year.

Next year we’ll have to see. Perhaps back south to see some areas we’ve missed or even come later in our winter and get across to Tasmania (best months for Tazzie are January and February). So many people tell us we should.

Well, as this is being written we are two games down out of five in the Australia v England Ashes Test and England have just taken the bat at the WACA in Perth. People have argued about which country is best – England or Australia – virtually since the first penal colonies were formed and the argument seems to have manifested itself in the battle for the Ashes. The Aussies are fiercely competetive and passionate about beating us Poms so come on England!! Give us something to shout about before we come home.

Thank you for looking
