I’m currently in Melbourne staying at the house of ‘Coleies parents, which has been a very nice break from the hostels and stuff. Fiji was fantastic as you might expect, and Australia has been very good so far also. This doesn’t stop the fact that I’ve been missing home, but all my flights and trains etc to get back to Plymouth have now been booked. I’ll get to Heathrow terminal 3 at 5:45am (!) on Monday 27th April, and then have four hours to get my bags and find my way to Paddington Station to get the train to Plymouth that’ll arrive at 13:05. I thought I’d better leave plenty of time to faff, I’ve got no idea how jet lagged and confused I’ll be. A nine hour stay in Hong Kong airport is unlikely to be helpful in that respect.
Hoping to be in a ‘see people and have fun’ mood by the end of the week (in time for the weekend!)
In the mean time, all I have to do is try and enjoy the sights and sounds of Australias two largest cities (I’ll be off to Sydney next weekend), not too hard they are very nice cities, see exibit A:
