After almost exactly 5 months, its almost time to go home.
Today is our last full day in London and this will probably be the last blogg we write on the road.
London has been uncharacteristically warm and sunny, so we are seeing another side of this city that has almost always been 'glum' on our previous visits. People are everywhere. Out and about enjoying the early onset of spring after a fairly severe winter. Its 'half-term' holidays, so the city is packed with locals and kids as well as tourists. A real taste of what 'high season' must be like.
The usual round of tourist attractions has held a little less thrill for us this time. After such a long trip we might well be suffering tourist overload, so it has been great to take it a little easier while staying with our cousin Alys.
Tomorrow we lump our caravan of bags off through the Tube to Heathrow for the long flight home via Singapore. While we are looking forward to getting home, the thought of the summer heat in Brisbane is not an attractive one! It has been 12 – 13 C here and we find that very comfortable for walking about. Add another 20C to that and we are going to suffer until we re-acclimatise.
