Our Adelaide catch up trip has been wonderful fun, and included much eating, drinking and making merry. Before we arrived I was thinking about how to manage luggage weight (do I really need that item for the next 8 months?) so that I would always be under the allowed level and with some space to spare. The suitcase is not too bad (around 16.5 kilos to start the journey). Now I’m thinking about the extra kilos I feel like I’ve put on since I’ve been here in Adelaide. I’m sure I’ll walk or sweat it off in the next couple of months.
