A sad day and our last in Australia. Due to the spike in Covid cases in New Zealand we have made the big decision to head home. Tony’s job is still open until February and we are being extremely optimistic about returning to the land of the long white cloud. We have loved Australia more than we can ever have imagined and will miss our daily walks amongst the White Ibis, Galah, giant magpies, rosellas and even the bloody noisy cockatoos! Endless beach walks collecting endless shells (thus the extra luggage!) It really feels like the end of this adventure and I’m so close to tears I’m almost glad I’m wearing a mask – useful for mopping! Excited and desperate to see the kids, family and friends and hoping for our adventure to start again next year!
