Alice Springs to Melbourne

After a six-week placement at the Alice Springs Hospital, mum has finally finished her nursing degree!!!!!!!! We picked her up from the hospital right after she'd finished her very last shift and started driving. That night we had a small feast. Holli, Asha and I had cooked...

The Henley-on-Todd Regatta

The Henley-on-Todd Regatta

Or should I just say the parade? The Henley-on-Todd Regatta is the only dry river regatta in the world and is the only regatta ever cancelled because of wet weather. The funniest thing is we didn't even want to go to start with. We were just going to stay at home and have a...
