... don't it make you lose your mind
18.12.2008 - 14.06.2010
Well we returned to the land of OZ and immediately set about getting to know some of the local wildlife.
After our time working for the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, we got busy trying to get ourselves a slice of the corporate life. Meaghan immediately found herself managing a small business in Armadale and I stumbled on a consulting job in Albert Park.
We loved the first few months being back in the WORLDS BEST SPORTING CITY!!!!
We caught the Australian Open, some Summer Cricket and the World Cup Track cycling.
We get back in the vibe of Melbourne, cool hidden bars, Degraves Lane coffee shops and some of the best wontons in Australia.
We also had a great time catching up with some old mates and family.
We even did a trip down to the Wilsons Prom lighthouse. It was awesome. Cheap wine, good sunset and great company.
Then we both somehow got really busy at work, and soon found ourselves in a 9-5 style grind. Less time for family and friends, we set our sights on entering the housing market. After months of false starts we ended up buying our castle on our very own small patch of turf.
Our house - pretty much in the middle of our street
Oh yeah, and I got a new job as an international man of mystery.
That has kept the travel bug at bay for the past little while but now we are on the verge of our next big adventure.
In preparation for the trip - we did some last minute research and saw the Australia Vs New Zealand friendly match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
The mittens came all the way from our mates in Canadianaville - Josh and Jess - who we lived with in Istanbul.
Since that game we have had a great time doing some last minute trip planning and catching up with another couple of travellerspoint regulars on their recent short trip home.
