Sydney to Canberra - Monday, 15 August 2016

Home again, home again - jiggity jog!

sunny 17 °C

We both had a great sleep last night and didn't wake up during the night so hopefully our body clocks are back to normal.

We had a no rush morning and were on the road for home by 9.30 am and arrived home safely at 12.15 pm. There was quite a bit of traffic on the road, especially lots of big trucks but they didn't really bother us that much. It is quite frightening sometimes though, to watch what silly things they do on the roads, especially when they are driving such huge rigs.

We unpacked and I started on the huge mountain of washing to be done. We took the hire car back to Fyshwick and I popped into Coles just to buy a few basics until I get back into the routine of grocery shopping.

Canberra was minus 3 to 17 today. We are feeling a bit fresh but not cold. Only two weeks until Spring, so psychologically that is good.


We had a great time in Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Ireland and Hong Kong. We met some memorable people, saw many amazing things, ate some great food and drank some interesting concoctions. The weather was extremely hot and dry and lucky for us, Ireland didn't live up to its claim of "always raining". I would definitely recommend travelling to all of these countries. The people were friendly and English speaking locals were plentiful.

Hopefully over the next couple of days, I will be able to publish my remaining six blogs from Spain, after I plough through the mountain of mail waiting for my attention.
