AUS ‘09 – DAY 1

Won ton and noodlesSay what you like about Australia but it is a very long way from home. Helen and I left home Saturday night and didn’t get into Melbourne until early on Monday morning. To be fair it wasn’t as horrendous as we had been expecting it to be particularly as we both managed to get some sleep in on the plane. Also the layover a HK was good including all you can eat noodles – looking forward to coming back in a couple of weeks time.

It was great to see our friends again after six months. Their eldest girl has already picked up the local twang which was a bit weird. So we are now holed up in their house waiting for our bodies to work out just which time zone they are in. Woke up this morning to some very exotic sounding birds, although they are probably not. It’s all bit bit strange…

Today the holiday begins.
