Where I stayed
Oh how our lives have changed!
Now living in Brisbane, having moved out here in October 2007. Have been incredibly lucky since we have arrived, live in a great area overlooking the sea and have made some fantastic friends. Even luckier had Archie in January 2008 (18 months ago today in fact). He is great little boy and is the light of our lives. Travelling these days is not quite the same as it was, but we do make trips up and down the coast and went back to the UK for Christmas which was great to see family and friends again and show off our little boy.
We are now expecting #2 in September which should add yet more excitement to the mix but again suspect our travelling will be slightly less adventurous, for now at least!
Dave has done a fair amount of travelling for work since we have been here mainly to Singapore, The Phillipines and Japan. Not quite backpacking but a different kind of travel, although mostly involving offices and airports. We hope to go travelling again one day with the kids and see more of Australia and Asia while we are over this way! We always said our next trips would be Africa and Europe but little did we know we would end up living in Oz! Having said all that we are actually off to Fiji tomorrow so you can't feel too sorry for us.........
Loving Aussie life so far. Its amazing what a difference great, reliable weather makes, especially when you have children. It is not hot and sunny every day which would just be dull but is certainly less grey and rainly, unlike Britain (sorry!) Dave works from home most of the time now which is great and we try not to interrupt him too much, but are out a lot at mum's groups, playgroup, etc etc. We are very lucky and are so glad that we travelled before 'settling down' but also that we have settled in so well in another country.
Anyway, enough of my gloating. For anyone that is still reading our blog thanks for tuning in and hope at least some of what we have written in the last few years has helped in your travels - we are leaving the adventurous travelling to you for the moment!
