The Big Adventure - Reflection

We have both recently retired and of course were married in early November.    We had decided that we wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand and that we should take our time over the journey - hence the 11 weeks.  It was an amazing honeymoon.
The timescale allowed us to take things gently and to immerse ourselves in our landscape.   It has been a fantastic adventure.  Inevitably some places were less spectacular that we had expected;   other places were much more impressive than we were anticipating.
The adventure started with 4 weeks in Sydney, staying in an airbnb apartment.  That was great.   Yes we saw the normal sights, but also spent some days just wandering around, or going to the beach or enjoying the museums and culture.   I had spent a year in Sydney in 1979, so I loved revisiting places I remember from all those years ago.
The red centre is an amazing landscape - breath-taking at times.  It was just a pity the weather was not good and therefore we did not see the sunrise or sunset on Uluru.
Equally the weather was disappointing in the Barrier Reef .  The coral was grey rather than the bright colours we had been lad to expect. 
Daintree and the rainforest was a unique environment that we loved.   We also both enjoyed Airlie Beach and area.  There are some amazing islands, pristine beaches and just a very laid-back atmosphere.
Agnes Water was not quite so enjoyable  - possibly because it was school holiday time and there were huge numbers of families and children taking over the hotel pool and the local beach.
The cruise to Auckland was fine.   It allowed us to visit cities such as Dunedin and Christchurch in a hassle-free way.   The scenery at Milford Sound was breath-taking. 
We enjoyed Auckland and its beaches.  And then Hong Kong was an amazing place.
And we met some friends and relatives that we had not seen for many years - always a good thing to do.

So the adventure is over, but the many memories will stay with us forever.
