Australian Adventure – Conclusion

The Australian Adventure is over and we are safely back in our homeland – South Africa!  To all the Australians who have read the blog – thank you for hosting us in your fantastic country.  Almost every Australian we met was friendly, kind and helpful from the smallest child to the very old man I met and chatted to on the ferry.   He struck up the conversation and showed a real interest in where I came from and he was proud when I told him that his countrymen had been good to us.

Thanks to my Aussie Family for their love and care of us, putting up with our demands and showing us a jolly good time!  We love you guys and look forward to you coming to visit us in the very near future!

It was also amazing catching up with friends – the Morrises – Australians we met some years ago – your hospitality was beyond amazing and you made our Australian Birding dreams come true!                                                                                 Gail and Martin – wow – so sorry we didn’t have a tad longer with you guys – but our day together was awesome.   We look forward to having a Kruger trip with you soon!

I thought the flight back would be easier than the one over but the opposite was true. We left at 10:30 a.m. Australian Time and arrived in Johannesburg at 3:30 p.m. South African time – 14 hours in the air!  By the time we got onto our connecting flight at 6:00 p.m. I was exhausted.  I guess it was because we didn’t really have a night and I didn’t even try to sleep.

However, after a good night’s sleep I felt great this morning.  School started bright and early with a rousing, inspiring and welcoming staff meeting at 7:30 a.m.   And so it’s back to normal life and living the South African Lifestyle!
