...and so the adventure begins

                                     "one's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things" ~ Henry Miller  

I have been lucky enough to have been on a big family adventure. I have seen some things I have thought about for a long time and some things I couldn't have imagined and I have learnt, questioned, wondered, laughed, despaired, followed, led, tasted...
Here are some random thoughts and some new ways of seeing things!

travelling with children is an adventure, exhausting, eye opening, challenging...

                                                              Australia has REALLY good coffee

    for every moment that is uncomfortable, there will be a thing of immeasurable beauty

                               go to see the things you've heard much of, but be prepared to share it!


never underestimate the value of pictures and arrows on signs

                         explore what is under the city as well as above

                                                          look up

do it your way

                                                                                                     wear good shoes

                    everyone knows where Sydney, NSW is...

                                                        in Europe, Australia really is the other side of the world!

hunger is a traveller's enemy

                                airport security is a necessary evil

                                                                                       catch up with old friends
             make new friends

                                 keep a journal

there is nothing quite like your own pillow

                                                                                     pack your sense of humour

...and of fun!

                                                                                                   free wifi is your friend

There are so many stories, too many to share and so much was gained by all of us, big and small.
The most important thing I will take away, other than memories, is to enjoy the little things for one day I will look back and realise they were the big things!
