With just a few days ago before I take off, I’m at the stage now where I’m saying goodbye to everyone with, “See you in a year”. It’s really hitting me at the moment that this is really happening and I am really getting on a plane on Tuesday. In the midst of packing up and preparing to go, I took a trip down to Melbourne last week to catch up with family and friends.
For me, the beauty of re-visiting places is being able to see things with new eyes each time. This is very much the case for me with Melbourne, where I manage to get down most years. So it was a wonderful four days of catching up with people, making new connections and having fun, including a few films at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
I hardly took any photos, but what kept drawing my eye and got me snapping occasionally were all the colours of the city. I’d never noticed this before — but there it was, everywhere I looked and whatever time of day it was.
