Farewell Sydney

Kate and Mark are on the road again!

Today we had a farewell breakfast with some of the friends we've made over the past five and a bit months in Sydney at a beach front cafe in Manly.

We've both said that if we didn't have five months worth of travelling and adventures in front of us, leaving would have been much much harder. You can't help but love the way of life living and working over here. Work is work wherever in the world you do it, the jobs are pretty much the same and the pressures and stresses get to you regardless of office location. The difference seems to be how the hours outside of work are spent, a weekend on
the beach makes every weekend feel like a mini holiday. A stroll along the seafront or a surf after work makes the days seem longer and the hours "wasted" at work float into the background... it is easy to see why so many people end up coming back.

Here's a quick run down of our forthcoming stops:

Snowy Mountains
Wilsons Prom
Melbourne - another thank you to the guys at Topia for the night in a 5* hotel - Bath towels will no doubt be stollen and the mini bar cleaned out!
Philip Island
Great Ocean Road
Kangaroo Island
Port Augutsa
Cooper Peady
Maragret River

The plan is to arrive in Perth for early Feb and have two weeks with Mum before leaving for New Zealand and the next leg of our journey on the 23rd Feb.

Hopefully, wifi connection depending, a more regular blog update can be expected now that we're back on the road!

I have really enjoyed reading your reports - am busy planning a month in Oz from Dec 2009. Enjoy all the new locations you are due to visit. NZ is wonderful - I can vouch for that!!!!!
