Well here I am back on a long haul flight..
I can remember a time when I longed to travel overseas. Now there is part of me that would be happy to never see another airplane.
That said, the airplane gives me the chance to meet very special people and get a perspective on my country that you just can’t get from Australia.
I must confess though that I felt very Australian on Sunday watching the Wallabies hold on for a miraculous win over the Springboks. I had Bren stirring the guys all week about the game, but I honestly thought we didn’t stand a chance.. I feel a bit guilty that we won. South Africans take rugby so seriously, the whole nation was devastated. It was interesting to watch an Aussie sporting event being the only Aussie in the room.
