Is it really that time already?

Wow, how the time has flown! It’s Halloween already which means one more sleep and I board the first of 3 planes for my trip home. The long haul of 27 hours from Portland, Or, USA to Hobart, Tas, Australia.

My two + weeks have been the most incredible I’ve ever experienced. I’ve seen some of the world’s infamous sights – Grand Canyon, Sedona, Mt St Helens – and some of the most beautiful country side, rugged coastline and I can’t forget the stunning colours as the trees change.

I’ve eaten new foods – or new combinations – driven on the wrong side of the road – quite the strangest experience I’ve had for some time – been called British on several times – not an issue at all – and being drilled about all things Australian – from my friend’s husband mainly – christened myself ‘the gift shop queen’ and amused a new friend with my ‘fancy selfies’

The last three days have been very long, and very busy. Long times in the car, some bad coffee, lots of laughing and the destination becoming the journey. Or was it that the journey became the destination?
Either way, good times with my friend, her husband and sister.

One day I’m on top of a mountain, the next I’m attending my friends wedding.
The next week, I’m in the snow on top of a lava flow, while the following day finds me standing on the beach in front of the Pacific.
And just over a week before I’m wearing shorts and getting a tan in 30C heat in the desert surrounded by cactus.

I have hundreds of photos to go through and if I get time to look at them properly now, I will spam your inbox with numerous posts. If not, then when I get home and find my head space, as I’ll be hitting the ground running.
For now, please enjoy a few shots of my latest little adventures.

  1. I’m so glad you’re having fun! I can’t wait to see the pictures, but realistically, you’ll be posting them for the next year. It takes a long time to sort them out and decide what you like.

  2. I enjoy the blogs of your travels almost as much as you have doing it.
    Wonderful pics again– as always.

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful time, except for the bad coffee. 🙂 We can’t have that! Beautiful pics. Where are the beach pictures from?

    • Different places along the coast, I’ve yet to get my map sorted. Mostly, just north, or just south of Newport I think. I will do a post with some more definitive answers and locations.
      Had a brilliant time, and bad coffee on a road trip is par for the course isn’t it?
