As you read this, we are probably out for dinner in Byron Bay, celebrating the finish of the final concert and the successful tour. Or, we may be back at our accommodation, organizing our bags for an international flight on Monday morning. Or, we may already be enroute to LA where we'll visit friends for a couple days before finally landing in Philadelphia on Thursday evening.
It's a long time on the road, living out of a suitcase, sleeping in a different bed every couple of nights, eating out for nearly every meal. It's a long time for me anyway. There were times when I itched for a routine and for my own home, but it has been both an exciting and a restful time.
I said I wanted to see more of Australia and her contrasts, and to a great degree, I believe I have, from dry and seemingly-deserted country towns to bright and busy capital cities. I have a greater vision of the land that my husband will to some extent, regardless of how long he lives in the United States, call home.
Thanks for coming along with us. I've enjoyed sharing this journey with you.
Though I started this blog just before our trip began, I didn't start it just for the trip alone. As I mentioned in my first post, it's a place to practice the craft of writing, to explore ideas and to appreciate the many pleasures that life holds. It's still a pretty new thing for me, so it's hard to say exactly what you can expect, but I imagine I'll be talking mostly about food and food-related stories.
And I hope you'll stick around.
