Even obsessive travellers get downtime. Having spent the weekend near Coffs Harbour, helping my mother out with the odd domestic task, there's not terribly much to report on the travel learnings front, apart from the obvious: having access to a washing machine and some sunshine makes life much easier.
Despite daily bouts of laundry, this weekend is the first time during the trip that I've been able to dry my clothes outdoors. It's definitely easier, but it's also unlikely in a hotel context. I'm now heading for Cairns, which means a long stopover in Sydney. The airport's surprisingly empty for a Sunday evening.
