[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

Took a short trip with Sharon and Lex on the weekend, and wandered up to visit Lewis, Marylin, Nick, and Adrian in the Blue Mountains.

Had a lovely time catching up with good friends, though I slept a hell of a lot once I got there. Think I've finally crashed after my super-busy day a couple of weeks back, either that or it was my very busy pre-trip Friday wot did me in. Certainly I'm still struggling today and about to go back to bed.

Have to say though, the GPS is fabulous for exploring! On the way back I set it for the fastest route home (that didn't use the tollways) and we went from the Blue mountains to Goulburn, using only smaller roads and routes, no highways, and going through little towns like Oberon and Taralga. I always love driving new roads, each one is an fresh adventure. I really liked Taralga and want to swing back for a proper visit. And there was a some gorgeous scenery on the way back, too.

Best thing, in total taking the back roads rather than the highway and tollway only took us a quarter hour longer! For a much more beautiful trip! Would like to have taken photos, but stopping the car teands to mean Lex will wake, then need to feed, then need a change, and so an hour is lost. So if I'm going to stop, it needs to be pretty spectacular. Instead what i do now is put together a list of places I want to revisit.

Oh dear, more trips, how sad :)

Whoa -- Adrian as in Adrian Bruce?

He's my old boss! But then, you might have picked that up, if he bitched about me being a slacker. :-)

Heh, I wanna visit the Blue Mountains! My Grandmother grew up there. I think it would've been pretty.

I know Oberon!

One morning my flatmate asked if I could spare an hour or two of my study time, to go on a short of a drive with her and the little guy. We reached Oberon late that night, and ended up in a little hotel called the Titania. It was the totally unexpected holiday!

On our big Road Trip we also suffered photo burn-out from stopping and taking photos of this scenery or that. Which is a pity because there were some truly spectacular detours later in the trip that in hind-sight we would've loved to've taken a few shots. You're hurtling along, it's too late to stop and you think "there'll be more 'round the bend", and then you found out that *was* the highlight of the detour.

Aah well, the memories are still there, and we did get some great shots... Maybe we'll be back that way some day.
