Year of the Kangaroo

8th August 2015 So there it is. 12 Months of travelling around and living in Australia. So much done but so so much more still to do. It only feels like yesterday that we arrived off the plane in Perth in search of adventure and (after 7 months in Asia), wine and cheese! What started […]

Reeling in the Year:2014
