Life on the road is as social as you want it to be. We find that during our winter trips we often catch up with friends who’ve moved north for good. We also run into mates who are on a different timetable and maybe heading south as we’re going north or vice versa. That planned catch up over a bowl of noodles in Glen Waverley becomes Korean in Canberra instead. Then there are the folks that we’ve met during our travels and who are as peripatetic as we are, if we’re lucky we can meet up in a little town who knows where, but a laugh is guaranteed. Travelling is also a good time to catch up with far flung family too and it doesn’t have to be on their turf it can be somewhere new to us all. As you’ve probably guessed by now, I seem to always be running into people that I went to school with, I’m beginning to wonder if we were all surreptitiously brainwashed into a love of travelling. Quite often too we are travelling with a bunch of mates for company, whether it’s snoozing in the sun or enjoying a wine while dinner cooks life is never dull.
Here’s cheers to all the folks you’ll meet on the road!
