Home Again

I'm back in Melbourne, back at work and back in the real world. Wouldn't it be nice to be on holidays forever...

I feel a bit lost because so much of my energy has been toward this holiday and now it is over and it feels like the day after Christmas. I need some new things to look forward to. We don't even have any more public holidays in Melbourne until Melbourne Cup Day in November.

I'll leave you with a few photos from the day in Milford Sound- a truly remarkable place. The photos cannot come close to showing the beauty and magic of this place.

We caught a bus at 7am and didn't get back until 7pm so it was a long day. I was so sick on the bus (motion sickness) we nearly caught a helicopter back to Queenstown because I didn't think I could handle the trip home, but it was going to be over $1000, so I sucked it up and got back on the bus! It was worth it in the end because we had a cruise down Milford Sound and it was lovely to get some fresh air and take in the beautiful scenery.


  1. Shame about getting ill on the bus, but the scenery is delightful anyway! Shame holidays have to end... back to the grindstone.

  2. They look like postcards! Lucky girl!

  3. Oooooooooohhhhh I would've kicked your ass if you'd missed out on Milford Sound! Those photos are stunning, but if my memories serve me correctly, even those photos don't do that place justice - I remember it being one of the most beautiful, peaceful, and mind blowing places I've ever been to. :-)

    Welcome home!

  4. Kwells hunny.. Kwells... that what I take for motion sickness... I hate it too but nothing we can do about it... The photos are gorgeous!!!

  5. No more photos goddamm it!! I'm sitting here jealous and broke!! *giggles*
    No really thanks for sharing. I can't wait to travel with the kids and hubby. Not until the youngest is about 8 I reckon ... that way they will remember and maybe behave better!! lol


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
