We had been away for almost 3 years exactly. It felt great to be back, even for a ‘short’ visit. After an overnight stopover in Dubai, we spent 2 weeks in Perth. It’s where I grew up and we ended up spending most of our time with both of our families. From there we had 2 weeks in Melbourne: Catching up with friends, seeing all the places we used to visit a lot back when we both lived here. 1 month is generally a good period of time to visit any place in the world, but with so many people to see and places to visit, it was very full on and it was all over way too quickly. We’ll be back there, visiting again soon, though.
