The journey home

I left you yesterday with me sitting at the Melbourne airport waiting to board my gate. Once we were on the plane I realized that the flight wasn’t 12 hours as I thought, it was 14+, there isn’t that much to say about the trip home other than a study in airplane food, starting with…

A final day
