Transit via Europe

My parents and I (25th Oct 2009)

Strangely enough, the cheapest flights from Australia to South America were via Europe.

So I took this as an excuse & opportunity to visit family and friends in Germany and the UK.

It felt good to see some familiar faces – even if it was only for a short while. And the two weeks of 'Hotel Mama' & delicious food put new energy into my tired "traveller's battery" – Thanks a lot for everything, Mum & Dad!!

Then one short week in London, and I was off to Buenos Aires / Argentina on the 4th of November, to take a few weeks of Spanish classes before the motorcycle arrives.
