Ok... so this isn't EXACTLY my favourite photo, but it resembles the one I like the most. I was in fits of giggles when I was taking it - I've saved you the unpleasantness of unwittingly taking a peak at Dallas' white bum, though. Really, the sun reflects off it in the other photo.... hehe. sorry dal.
There are a few lessons learned from this trip.
- Taking a holiday with a child, can't really be classified as a holiday. As one lady put it so eloquently this morning - "Different scenery, same old crap/routine". I can't tell you how exhausted I am from this trip.
- If you are sitting in the back of a van, the bumps in the road are 50 times more severe.
- You can NEVER take too many photos of Ayers Rock.
- Don't buy a Ham/Cheese/Tomato sandwich on a flight that you only paid $10 for.... it's bound to be old.
- Trying to get a toddler to sit still is more exhausting than running around with her.
- Dallas is a maniac driver who likes to push the limits. (130km/hr in a hightop van?? That's living on the edge!)
- Chest straps on backpacks aren't really designed for ladies.
- Sometimes when you say nachos, you end up with wedges.
- The Australian Aborigines really do go on walkabout - we saw lots of them walking everywhere.
There was so much to see and so much to experience. Dallas and I have decided that we will become grey nomads after retiring and tour around Australia - without the children. Even with five days we missed much, but experienced even more. Here are a few photos to prove it.
