As holidays go it has been a mixed bag of emotions and turned into something we were not expecting. Our Australia trip was for a 2 month holiday – to spend time with Mike’s family and friends and road trip around Australia.
We were gonna use the holiday time to make a plan for what we were doing next. His dad had been unwell and in hospital after an operation to remove a tumor from his spine about 6 weeks before.
When we landed in Melbourne with got the news that Mike’s Dad was terminal. Our timing was (I want to say good, but that just doesn’t seem right), Our timing was Fate? We both work freelance so it has been easy for us to be flexible with our travel times.
Staying in Australia for a while
So as it stands we are gonna be in Australia for a while, we will still road trip around Australia but for no, we are spending important time with family, caring for his Dad, helping his mum and getting to do some sightseeing and taking some great photographs.
I continue to be amazed by family carers and nurses that do this full-time. The love and the strength are beyond words. None of us know what the future holds so just live and love every moment. xx
