Four nights ago we escaped the rains of north eastern NSW and headed south. We drove, and drove, and drove…. over 1,300 kms in total.
Today we arrived in Jindabyne, a small alpine town about 100 km south of Canberra. As soon as we saw the town, Karl and I agreed that we probably should have come here instead of heading north in the first place. Jindabyne looks a whole lot like Kelowna (minus the crowds) AND it has not seen any considerable rain in close to a month. Should've, could've, would've…
Alright, that's not fair to say. Despite the rains, we did have a great time in the north, especially in Bangalow, and especially on Australia Day :), but heading north and then coming back down south has simply been way too much driving and it has taken a bit of a toll on us all.
We thought we learned this lesson in Hawai'i, but it seems we are quick to forget our lessons. Going forward, we are adopting a "less is more" approach to this trip. Less driving around, less worrying about all the awesome spots we might be missing. Less packing up. Less setting up. Less taking town.
