When Mrs Bob and I lived in the UK we loved travelling around Europe. Long weekends, one week holidays, different cultures, different sights, we loved it. It was the one thing we knew we would miss by moving to Australia because, well, Australia is rather remote and detached from the rest of the world.
So it was no surprise to us that when we got here we continued to do a lot of travelling, not so much different cultures this time, but certainly we’ve had many long weekends, one week holidays and we’ve seen lots of different sights.
- Alice Springs
- Gold Coast
- Hervey Bay
- Sunshine Coast
- Tweed Coast
… and many more. We’ve also done a bit of an Australian road trip as well, so we try to get about as much as we can.
But as you have no doubt noticed, there are a couple of cities, major cities, capitals actually, that are missing from my list. I’ve been threatening to go to one of them for quite a few years now, but I’ve never quite made it.
Because it is so far away!
If I was still living back in the UK and getting a flight from Heathrow, in the same distance as it takes to get to this Australian city from Brisbane I could have got to Egypt.
I don’t still live in the UK though, I’m not flying from Heathrow and nor am I going to Egypt.
Here’s where I’m heading today…
And I sure am looking forward to saying “G’day” to some Perth people in a pub.
