Return to S/E Asia
Our last day in Queensland was spent driving down to the Sunshine Coast where we bade a temporary farewell to our home of the last couple of months. Until we’re reunited (around June 2017), we’re fortunate enough to have private, free parking in a very scenic spot. Continue reading

The Hughes’s have landed
And we’ve made it!
The last few days in The Netherlands were spent saying goodbye to some wonderful friends and colleagues. This, more than anything else, brought it home that we were leaving for good.
