Having experienced the town and the very pricey food – seriously though, I had been warned Australia was expensive, but man oh man! – I bought some wine and some groceries and headed for a slow night in.
After Alice Springs, I flew to Brisbane and stayed overnight with Erin’s cousin and her family. They are adorable! Two kids full of spunk and wit, and the cuddliest puppy ever. After the fantastic joy of a home cooked meal and laundry, I took the bus in the morning down to Byron Bay.
