Moving back to Europe

With a laugh and a tear we are leaving this great country today. Eight more hours until we are in the airplane. We have lived here for three years and it feels like the have flown by in an instant.

We have experienced a different way of life, met great people, made friends for life, had great adventures and explored quite a bit of this amazing place.

After some hard goodbye’s and continuing to repack our bags to stay under the weight limit we are getting ready to go to the airport.

For the coming 30 hours you can follow our flightsvia the following links: track our flight to Singapore live and our onwards flight to Germany.

Thank you Australia!
