This time next week we'll be boarding a plane back to Melbourne.
It is such a scary thought
I actually don't know what has happened to the last 7 months. It feels like a trick of time- an absolute distortion of reality. It feels like we've just left! I swear to god, if I wake up to find this has all been a dream- i will not be happy.
It has by far made 2011 the best year of our lives. All the people we've met, the quikry personalities, the people who have given us such hospitality, the travlers who have inspired us, the laughs we've had :) And all the friends we've made. We've traveled so far, done so much and seen so much culture that I don't know how to take it all in...
Seven months is a long time, and we've done so well to make it this far. We've kept our heads high whenever things crumble underneath our feet, we have never given up. We keep eachother going. It was only a month ago when we started to get a little homesick, when we realised it was only weeks until we were coming home.
And we've been counting down the days since.
As the winter is starting to break us down, we are looking forward to Australian sun. We are looking forward to the fact that the sun won't set at 4.30 in the afternoon, we are excited to not have to wear a hundred layers of clothing whenever we want to step outside.
I can't believe it.
We're finally coming home.
