Canberra is an interesting place. It’s not somewhere that’s high on the tourist list, but with extended time in Australia, it’s worth a visit. It’s both a University town and the Political Hub of Australia. It’s an interesting mix. But, I have always been on the fence when it came to Canberra. I have discovered why people who live there, love it so much.
Throughout my daughter’s life I’ve always used thrown out the term “life lesson” when I wanted her to learn from what I was saying. Sometimes she listened. I’m sure most times she didn’t. So I wrote them down for her…
With less than 30 days before we begin our 10 month (re) Discover Australia roadtrip, we’ve calculated our pre-trip costs. We’ve determined a way to travel comfortably, frugally that’s a lot cheaper than buying a campervan and a lot less stress than towing a camper trailer.
This indefinite travel adventure has been a dream for as long as I can remember. I never anticipated the emotional journey it would take to get here.
I will admit, these are trying days. It’s only days until our girl heads to Uni. On one hand, I am ready to just kick her to the kerb. On the other hand, it’s only 5 days before our daughter leaves for University. It will be like losing a limb. While I know it will be liberating for her to be on her own, it still will be a massive change for us all. Which is part of why I’ve said ‘fuck it, I’m going travelling’ rather than dealing with the pain and isolation of the empty nest.
With our Living List nearby, we’ve mapped out our travel route. Now we can see what else we’re missing! It’s good to keep reality in check…not!
