Theres Not Place Like Home

Theres Not Place Like Home

I recently came back from spending the holidays in Australia.  In the past when I have gone to Australia to visit my family, I fly into the Gold Coast stay a week then fly into Sydney staying another week.  This time my husband thought it would be great to rent a car, pack up the kids and take 4 days to drive the 600 miles from Surfers Paradise to the Sydney, and take the scenic route whenever possible.

One of these scenic routes got us on a road that turned to dirt, and next thing we know we are in the middle of a cattle drive.  Once we made it through the cattle waiving to the Aussie ranchers on horseback as we passed, we found ourselves on a two-car ferry being pulled across the river into Port Macquarie.

The reason I’m telling you about my holiday adventure, is because somewhere during the hours of sitting in the car looking at the beautiful landscape, I had an epiphany.  Where we live is just a beautiful and diversified.  I consistently found myself turning to my family saying “change the eucalyptus trees for pine trees and doesn’t this look like Grass Valley?”  “Oh, what a cute town doesn’t this remind you of Nevada City”, and “look at these pretty rolling hills with the horses, couldn’t this be Penn Valley?”.  I told my Aunt and Uncles all about Victorian Christmas and the fun things going on in Grass Valley, I would look up pictures on my phone to show them downtown NC covered in snow, and they would oooh and awe.  In fact, several of them have decided to join me for Christmas 2019, which I’m sure will be another blog.

So long story short, Australia is beautiful and I had a wonderful time, but there really is no place like home. Aussie Family
