…my posts have been. Until now, I think I’m just about caught up.
After getting to Melbourne and heading out on the Great Ocean Road, my internet access was spotty. I was also, admittedly, quite exhausted, and driving long hours each day. It came down to “post a blog, or sleep? Sleep!”.
So I’m just about up-to-date. After spending a few days now in Australia, I have a few thoughts:
- Bugs: They are just as big as you’d imagine. I thought I was getting a free pass by not seeing any. These things make the giant cockroach I hid from in Hawaii look puny. Apparently all the rain has made them even more plentiful. Excellent.
- Roundabouts: Why are there so many?!?! Are there rules? It seems to me to be a free-for-all. And I go through at least 20 a day, making a little “eeeee” sound as I do. It’s bad enough I’m on the other side of the road.
- Weather: It’s freezing. Apparently summer has been awful here. Wish I’d realized this before packing shorts and t-shirts, and leaving behind sweaters!
- Food (and stuff in general): Everything is so expensive! Australia you are robbing me blind!
