Back To Perth
05.02.2010 - 05.03.2010
Well there it was, exactly 11 months of travelling, over 115000 km's, 75+ cities, 18 different coutries and countless friends along the way. An amazing period of time that is simply as good as life could possibly be, atleast for me.
I had the opportunity to visit some of the places I had wanted to go since I was a little kid and some places I had never really had in my mind to go but was glad that I went there. Obviously nobody can love every place that they visit and I was no different having a few places that I just didn't enjoy for one reason or another. Thankfully the great thing about travelling is that for every place you don't quite like you find atleast three that you absolutely love. I certainly can't complain as the trip was everything I hoped it would be and in so many ways so much more.
So what does one do when he comes back from spending so much time overseas you may well ask? Well for me it was simple catch up with my family, re-introduce myself to my 6 month old niece and get my fill of cricket and footy. This combined with catching up with friends and seeing how much life has and hasn't moved on kept me entertained.
However, with both my love and quest for travelling not quite satiated I decided a month at home would be enough and that a return to South America was in my near future. I said before I left that South America would be hard for me to leave, even knowing that I would love it didn't really prepare me for how much it would captivate me. Now,if I could be anywhere in the world it would be in South America, so having the luxury of both time and money I continued my edict to do as I really wanted and ventured back, with no real agenda but the knowledge that no matter how long I was there it wouldn't be long enough.
