A perspective from Perth, Western Australia

Thinking of home.

Hi all...

It's been 7 weeks today since I commenced my wanderings around the earth, and it's probably the first time I'm actually starting to miss the bit of it that I call home. I'm now in Kraków, Poland, and having a great time, but also realising what I have in Australia and the people and places that define it for me. That's the weird thing, you know. I almost feel like I'm at home or at least in somewhere like Melbourne, and then I see these puzzling road signs and even more puzzling advertisements in the local language and am quickly reminded that I am nowhere near it. Roads, trees, even people tend to look very similar from place to place - the exception being Ireland where most people looked very similar to each other. I even saw a guy who looked like an old version of The Edge when walking around Temple Bar in London.

I actually like Kraków though and I'm looking forward to exploring it today. Ostrava, tomorrow. Vienna, Thursday. Budapest, morning coffee (Monday). Beograd, lunch (Wednesday). Istanbul, late-night dinner of kebab (Friday). Yeah, I'm being a tad weird, but hey, you don't have to read far in this journal to find weirdness. :P

Anyway, I'm off to explore (and update my blog before I do) - talk soon!
