After 6 months of working and traveling we arrived back in the States Thursday March 27th. It's nice to be back, but strange too. We are looking forward to returning home to Bend and seeing family and friends. From the time we left in September and returned 2 days ago we managed to make 17 flights and rack up many miles in the air. We have enjoyed a lot of beautiful places from the snow and ice of Antarctica, to the Great Barrier Reef and monsoons in Cairns, to the heat of Sydney and Melbourne, and the endless beauty of Tasmania.
